Knowing you want to upgrade the look of your garage is step 1, step 2 and beyond is how to go about it. One of the major choices to make is the painting of your garage interior. Changing the face of your four walls can completely transform the entire garage space. Thinking about painting this way is exciting, but slightly daunting. Take away some of the fear and focus on the fun with these garage painting ideas to assist in your creative brainstorming!
Let’s get ready to paint!
1. First Comes the Foundation
What makes painting the interior of your garage different from the interior of your home is the temperature factor.

The resilient nature of acrylic latex paint makes it perfect for defending against yo-yo weather while being less prone to chipping, peeling or bubbling. Latex paint dries quickly and is easy to clean up without the use of solvents, which is better for you and the environment.
2. Be Savvy in Shade Selection

3. Multi-dimensional Ideas
Using only plain, flat paint on walls is limiting your garage design potential. Add some flair to traditional flat paint walls with some non-traditional ideas.
Ever hear of chalkboard paint? You can square off a section of your garage wall near an entryway and create versatile and visually pleasing wall accent. Follow the proper preparation, paint, and enjoy endless uses for your new wall. Write greetings to the family, start your store list, or just draw silly pictures to put a smile on your face when you get home at the end of a long day.
