    Default Grage Paint

    What color do you think works best for garage walls?

    I was thinking of keeping it clean-looking and paint it white, but that might make it a bit bland.

    Suggestions?

    EDIT: Is it possible to change the title? I feel like an idiot for misspelling garage.

    You can always do a two tone. Top white, bottom gray with a red stripe in between.

    The white walls will reflect lighting while the gray will cover any marks on the wall.

    I just did all white since it was DIY and I was too tired to mess around with it.

    I agree, white is best as it reflects lights which most garages lack.

    besure you use a durable paint for at least the bottom 3 ft. as when washing the floors etc, the dirt will splash up onto the walls.

    I did high gloss grey for the bottom 3 ft, then a 4"gloss red stripe, then white semi gloss above that.. wished i had done high gloss everywhere!
