Epoxy Floors with Glitter can put Sparkle into Living Spaces

by The Library of Virginia


More and more new homes, offices, restaurants and retail spaces are looking for attractive flooring that is unique, healthy, and easy to maintain. Now a touch of glitter can be added to epoxy flooring to create a subtle yet attractive flooring surface. Most often a small size glitter is used and applied to a complementary background of colored epoxy. Although the glitter does not stand out in bright sunlight, it is perceived as an attractive glint under mood lighting conditions. The floors sparkle with life and create a gentle and appealing ambience.

During application of a second layer of floor coating, the glitter is gently blown out over the floor while the epoxy is still liquid. Swirls settle in and are permanently trapped. A three-finger pinch of glitter with the applicator is all that is needed. The most common colors are silver or gold, but other colors or blends of colors are available including red, blue, green, and copper. A personally customized floor is easily created by combining a choice of glitter with any of dozens of epoxy colors and/or colored chip options.



Other looks available include granite, tile, and slate. Logos, stripes and “yellow brick roads” are sometimes added to the floors of restaurants, “collector cars” garages, basements, and even food processing plants. The finish can be gloss, flat, or satin. Additionally, the floors may be skid-resistant, like emery paper, yet still easy to sweep or squeegee.


Epoxy flooring goes on at the job site and requires no seams. With no breaks in the surface, the floor coating becomes a continuous membrane that seals what is above from what is below. Mold, mildew, and other contaminants cannot penetrate the epoxy membrane and wash off easily.
