Color flakes are simply as their name sounds — solid flakes of color that complement the principal color of the epoxy floor. We can use one color to create a two-tone custom flooring, or you can ask for multiple types of color flakes and make a personalized mix.
The Pros of Color Flakes
It is completely acceptable to simply use a solid color for your epoxy floor, but many clients enjoy the depth and dimensionality created by incorporating flakes in the design. Flakes also offer texture and variability to any space. Along with these aspects, color flakes offer the following benefits:
- Flake combinations blend in with multi-hued color concepts.
- Flakes vary in size or shape — from one inch to as tiny as 1/32nd inch in diameter.
- Color flakes are ultraviolet light resistant.
- Flakes do not need to affect a level finish.
- Random flake patterns cover imperfections in your concrete flooring.
Customers use a range of principles when choosing their color flakes, such as favorite colors, creating a seasonal feel (spring, summer, fall and winter), team colors, camouflage, or simply use the color wheel — many variations are offered with color flakes and colored epoxy flooring.
