One of the many exciting things about decorative coatings is the variety of options. You can select a product for an outdoor space such as your patio, pool deck, walkway, or driveway or go with something to transform the appearance of indoor floors, countertops, fireplace surrounds, and more. However, along with an updated look, like most people, you probably want a solution that requires little maintenance.

The good news is that many decorative coatings require little time and effort to clean and maintain. A perfect example is a product called Classic Texture. This acrylic spray texture overlay offers tremendous benefits. In addition to a broad range of colors, textures, and patterns, it creates a comfortable walking surface. Best of all, sweeping as needed and occasional mopping or hosing the surface off is all you need to do to keep it in pristine condition.

Epoxy decorative coatings are another fantastic low-maintenance option. In fact, you can select a product for high-traffic areas. That means the coating can withstand a great deal of daily use and abuse yet last for years. You can even enhance the appearance using quartz beads, glass chips, or metallic flakes. Then, for maintenance, simply wash the surface off with a garden hose. For stubborn dirty areas, all you need is a commercial cleaning product made for epoxy and a soft-bristled brush.

Another easy-to-maintain coating is polyaspartic. Especially if you need a job completed quickly, you will appreciate how fast the right product cures. In most cases, an expert can have the surface done in a single day. Just like with epoxy, polyaspartic decorative coatings only need sweeping and hosing off to stay beautiful and functional.

With so many possibilities, you have the opportunity to create whatever look you want inside or outside of your home. Instead of spending your valuable time trying to keep the surface looking new, you can relax and enjoy your new space.
