You can just leave it natural concrete if you wish, but painting it will make it easier to see trash and easier to wash down. A lighter color of off white or gray would work fine. The lighter color will help in the lighting of the booth.

Put a concrete sealer down on the floor, We had a regular concrete floor on our booth and over time the floor got caked with overspray. We recently up graded to the downdraft booth with it's own basement pit. Don't have to worry about overspary cake anymore. One thing that I noticed with the concrete floor is that when we shoot single stage it was worst than BC/CC as far as the overspay cake. G/L

The home supply houses carry an epoxy garage floor paint that should be great to use.

Whatever you do use a good two part epoxy, not the cheap stuff you can get at home depot but a good industrial one. Also etch the surface really good prior to coating. surface prep is 3/4 of the battle. Amerlock makes a great two part that will be hard as rock. You really have to watch when you apply it you don't want to be trapped in the room and it needs a few days to air out but you won't wreck it. It doesn't cost much more than the cheap kits at the major lumber stores either.
