Man cave dance club flooring?
May 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm in the process of making over my husbands garage man cave, and need a little help deciding what to do with the flooring.
The question is, to paint or not to paint? I'm leaning on TO PAINT! But what color? And is painting cement trickier than painting walls? Tips, ideas, opinions, and suggestions are all appreciated.
The pictures aren't a whole lot of help. I'll post after pics to compare.
Yes there's a stage.
Yes we still plan to park a car in here on weekdays.
Yes it will be a functioning dance club.
We'll host a houzz party when we complete it!
Thanks friends,

This sounds like a fun project ! There is concrete stain that I highly recommend it won't peel or pop as it ages for the floors. I could see painting out the ceiling black to give a nite club feel I think I would go color blocks on the walls doing all walls in different colors then adding graphic black 1-3 inch stripes and lines vertically and horizontally. Maybe do a accent wall like the inside of the garage door when down as a graffiti wall. You could even have friends join in giving them a space to do something expressive. I could see using purple, black, neon lime, orange what ever fu colors you like. Just have fun with it and think PARTY club lol

Kevin Retired Decorator here's a link showing how to color block and a photo of one example. Basically your using a roller in different sizes and a lot of blue painter tape to create your own designs.

I hope this helps, You can also google Color Blocking for walls and get more ideas It's a look retro from the 70s early 80s done more in clothing fashion and now it's made a come back for walls.

Other popular colors that would be a club vibe Teal, Aqua, orange, Lime, deep Purple. And of course played off with a lot of black for the club feel. I could see doing the ceiling and floor black.

Another technique instead of a graffiti wall or in combination with it. Is you take the cardboard tubes off of dry cleaner hangers used for pants and dip the tube into the paint hold your finger over it till your ready and sling the paint at the wall , floor or what ever you want.. Try it on some cardboard or something 1st to get a feel for it and test it out but it can be cool on floors looking like paint splashed sort of look.

Another fun idea is use tube led light ropes spiraling out of control on the ceiling or walls . Look for LED light ropes. They sell in 25 foot long cords aprox or more or less. check
