5 Custom Paint Design Ideas to Make Your New Car Stand Out


There’s nothing like rolling your new car out of the showroom looking all pretty and shiny. That said, the excitement can be almost the same when you buy your first car regardless if its new or used, the fact of the matter is that you’re finally able to afford such a novelty in your life through your hard work and dedication. But for all its beauty and functionality, sometimes you just want to add a personal touch to your new car, and one of the best ways to do that is to get a unique custom paint job.

Now, this doesn’t have to cost you a fortune if you research your auto shops first, nor does it have to be a difficult process if you already know the type of look you’re going for. So today, we are talking about custom paint jobs for your new car and how you can make it look as pretty as possible.

Go matte for that intimate look

While everyone is talking about gloss finishes and vinyl covers, you might want to consider the other end of the spectrum – the matte paintjob. Without a doubt, the matte paintjob is intended for a unique audience, a type of person with a specific taste and a desire to make their car truly stand out in its simplistic aesthetics and timeless beauty.

The matte finish is a color that is not reflective whatsoever, so you get a smooth, beautifully rough texture that emanates confidence. You can choose a matte paintjob in almost any hue, black being sophisticated and luxurious, red being daring, and white being open and free. Choose a color that matches your personal style and flair. 

Try a two-tone paint job for a retro feel

Take a look at any classic car and you will notice that previous generations loved the two-tone paintjob, and for a good reason. The two-tone approach emanates sophistication and a timeless charm of classic vehicles that once rolled around the less-crowded streets. It’s a fashion statement, for sure, and you might not see it that often nowadays, but that doesn’t mean that the two-tone paintjob is not an amazing choice for a new-age vehicle.

Like the matte finish, the two-tone paintjob is a way to stand out, but in this case, you will also be evoking that retro vibe of the days past. There is no mixing or overlap of the two colors here, just two hues bordering and complementing each other. You can paint the top two thirds of the car in one color, and choose a complementary hue for the rest, or vice-versa. 

Use ceramic coating to protect your paintjob

One of the most important considerations you need to take to heart is that the new paintjob will not last you very long, nor will it achieve its true shine if you don’t care for it properly. You can buff and wax all you want, but if you don’t have a protective coat on your paintjob, the elements are bound to get to it eventually. This is why you should add ceramic coating to your paintjob.

You can get this done at any trustworthy auto body shop, or you can research the type of DIY nano ceramic coating that’s best for your car and your needs, and apply it yourself. The nano ceramic coating seals the paintjob and forms a protective shield that preserves its luster and its original hue, safeguarding it from dust, debris, scuffs and scratches, and other elements. 

Choose a fade paintjob to combine the hues

Another interesting paintjob you can consider is the fade paintjob, which means blending two different colors and making them fade into each other where they meet. This is something that only expert paint technicians can do, because it takes knowledge and experience to make the colors fade seamlessly and create a natural transition.

 However, the results can be quite amazing and captivating. You can choose to fade the colors from front to back or from top to bottom, creating a seamless transition that gives it a unique look and feel. 

How about a metallic finish?

Last but not least, you can always choose a metallic finish if you want your new car to reflect more light and get a unique, gleaming look. The metallic paintjob is almost the same as traditional solid paint, only with a small amount of metal added into the mix to achieve the lustrous effect. The glossy look is not the only thing it has going for it, because metallic paint can also disguise minor damage like bruises and scratches, making them harder to see and thus avoiding the need to visitor your mechanic. 

Wrapping up

Getting a new car or a used one is exciting and an amazing feeling, but don’t hesitate to give it a unique look if you have something specific in mind. Consider these ideas to make your car stand out on the road and in your eyes.
