Home White Floor Paint
If you are looking to paint the floor white in your home, it is important to understand how different rooms have different floor use. For example, kitchens and bathrooms need hygienic coatings, whereas staircases need a quality anti slip finish to be safe. To find the best white floor paint for your home, Promain would like to introduce a series of environments and the best white floor paint for their needs.
Home Gym Floor Paint
Home gyms are a perfect place for painting floors white. White floor paint will promote a clean atmosphere, and therefore leading to a safer more hygienic environment. If you are looking for a tough floor paint for a gym floor, Promain have an extensive list of quality paints depending on what your floor is constructed from.
Generally, we find gym floors need to handle heavy machinery, and the risk of damage from weights or movement of equipment. Because of this, Promain’s technical team tend to specify a high grade or epoxy floor paint to withstand these levels of abuse.
By and large, home gym floor paints are quite similar to garage floor paint. Both floors need to be durable, strong and resistant to chemicals – whether it is petrol or strong cleaning detergents.
One of our floor paints with the highest white floor paint reviews is Rustoleum Pegakote. This white floor paint is an incredibly hard wearing, two part, water based coating with a high gloss finish. Rustoleum Pegakote is suitable for use in garages, warehouses, showrooms, corridors, indoor car parks, workshops, commercial kitchens etc. This makes it perfect for a multitude of floors!
Available in a stock white colour and tintable to thousands of RAL colours. Promain can easily match to whichever colour you prefer using our in house facilities.
White Garage Floor Paint
One of Promain’s most frequently requested products is garage floor paint. Garage floors are generally constructed from concrete and therefore require specific preparation prior to painting. Although it is very easy to cut corners when painting concrete floors it is important to realise that without the correct preparation any paint, no matter the quality, will fail.
As mentioned above, Rustoleum Pegakote is also ideal as a garage floor paint. Many customers find that their garage floor paint has to withstand heavy abrasion. Pegakote as a product provides very good abrasion resistance and has excellent anti slip properties, and as a result it is perfect as a garage floor paint.

Previously, Promain have supplied a concrete white floor paint system to Ferrari in Manchester. You can read more about the project here: https://www.promain.co.uk/blog/resource-centre/ferrari-garage-floor-paint/
Sika specified a full white garage floor paint system consisting of:
- Sikafloor® Level 30 – A high performance, cementitious, self levelling and fast drying.
- Sika Sikafloor® 263 SL – A two part epoxy self-smoothing and broadcast system for concrete and cement screeds in areas of normal to medium heavy traffic.
- Sikafloor® 161 Epoxy Primer – A moisture tolerant solvent free epoxy primer used for priming concrete substrates, cement screeds and epoxy mortars.
- Sikafloor®-264 Epoxy Floor Resin – A two part, economic, coloured industrial epoxy resin floor paint for maintenance workshops, garages and loading ramps.
With industrial floor paint the most important part is the preparation. Consequently, when preparing concrete, it is important the substrate is ground or shot-blasted. Promain recommend this preparation prior to most garage floor paint application. Sikafloor® Level 30, a polymer-modified, pump-able, self levelling, fast-drying cementitious screed was initially applied to the substrate. If you would like to discuss more about this product, contact our technical team.
An important factor to account for with industrial floor paint is anti slip qualities. In Layman’s terms, white gloss floor paints tend to be slippery. To counteract this, anti slip aggregate can be integrated into the paint coating.
For paint galleries looking to paint the floor white, we would suggest Sika Sikafloor 264. If you are looking for a gloss finish, this paint can also be over-coated with a high gloss clear coat. Please note, that the higher the gloss level the less slip resistance is offered. Resistance to slip is important in foyers and other areas where rain or water can affect the anti slip qualities.
Sika Sikafloor 264 is a tintable white floor epoxy paint designed for use on concrete or screed surfaces. This is a popular trade floor paint, which is often used on areas such as car parks, garages or workshop floors. You will find it delivers a superb gloss showroom finish to any concrete or screed surface.
