If you’re looking for a flooring option for your concrete floor base that will stand up to the test of time even in a high-traffic home, you may have heard epoxy is a very durable option. But chances are when you think of epoxy, you envision the older epoxy flooring that was popular in industrial settings in the middle of the twentieth century.


You might be surprised to learn that epoxy flooring has come a long way from that old pattern of yesterday. It’s available in a wide range of styles and can be created in as many colors and patterns as you can dream up. One of the most spectacular epoxy flooring solutions is metallic epoxy, which looks as fantastic in a residence as it does any commercial establishment. At ACT Restoration in Brooklyn Park, we specialize in bringing beautiful concrete and epoxy floors to Minnesota residences. Here’s everything you should know about metallic epoxy flooring.

What is Metallic Epoxy?

Metallic epoxy is a multi-dimensional epoxy look that blends more than one type of pigment to create a bold metallic appearance. The resulting look can be subtle and elegant or dramatic with a glamorous sparkle. They look gorgeous in bathrooms, kitchens, and even living areas, and they can be created in just about any color you can imagine.


Some of the most popular metallic epoxy floors are pearl, dark onyx, and sapphire. But when it comes to the metallic epoxy style you install in your home, the style is completely up to you. Metallic epoxy floors work well with a wide range of architectural styles from mid-century modern to industrial or even contemporary looks.
