Best Garage Flooring Options

Today the garage has become more than a place to park the car and store stuff, many garages double as a laundry room, game room or restoration shop. Some garages are transformed into “Man Caves” a retreat for the man of the house to relax or work on a hobby or project. As a result, the standard bare concrete floor simply doesn’t do for this multipurpose space.


Let’s look at the options available in Garage Flooring.


Floor Coatings:

Rest-Oleum and other paint manufacturers offer epoxy coatings for garage floors. They are available in numerous colors and with the option of adding color chips or texture additives to the coatings. They are extremely durable, and can turn a Plain Jane garage into a show place overnight.


Floor Mats

G-Floor offers garage floor mats; these are similar to roll flooring for the house except that they are upgraded to withstand the rigors of garage use. They are stain and moisture proof and are available in several colors and textures. Unlike floor coatings, they offer very simple installation with minimal effort.


Floor Tiles

Peal and stick floor tiles for the garage are another option, they are Polyvinyl with a diamond tread pattern for an industrial look with the ease of cleaning offered by vinyl tile. There are numerous colors available to create any style or pattern you desire.


Interlocking Tiles

One of the most popular types of garage flooring is interlocking polyvinyl tiles. These simply snap together to create a ridged and strong floor. They are offered in a number of colors and patterns such as diamond plate or round dot patterns. Ramp edges and parking stops are available as well to customize your application.

Open grid patterns are available to allow for drainage of rain, ice or snow, the open pattern allows the water to drain naturally to the outside. No sweeping of water is necessary, no slippery floor to step out on.

For those who are looking for a homier look, Swisstrax makes modular flooring in wood grain patterns, have the look of fine wood and the durability of heavy-duty interlocking flooring for your garage.
