Cover your plain concrete garage floors with innovative design solutions like interlocking rubber flooring, hardwood tiles that snap together and carpet tiles that you can easily install. If you're looking for inexpensive solutions, try staining your existing concrete floor for a custom designer look that's budget friendly.
Interlocking Rubber Tiles
Interlocking rubber floor tiles are the perfect solution for an attractive garage space that can function as a place to store your car as well as a work or living space. You can connect rubber tiles together directly on top of your existing concrete. No special tools or skills are required for installation--the tiles fit together quickly and easily. Rubber floor tiles are stain resistant, durable and available in a variety of colors and styles.
You can resurface the existing concrete floor in your garage with snapping hardwood tiles. Like the interlocking rubber tiles, there are no special techniques or tools required to install the tiles, just place them on the concrete and snap them together. The slatted hardwood tiles have a plastic base with connection points that fit one to the other. You can create a pattern for your floor with the direction of the wood slats. Hardwood tiles will not withstand the weight of your car, but they will help you quickly transform your garage into an attractive space.
Create a comfortable space in your garage with carpet tile flooring. Like the hardwood tiles and the rubber tiles, you can easily install carpet tiles over a concrete floor. As with the snapping and interlocking tiles, you can simply remove and replace a single tile without disrupting the entire floor.
Staining the existing concrete floor in your garage is an inexpensive alternative to any of the tiles. You can combine stain colors for a unique garage floor or use templates and stencils to create a design pattern. Acrylic concrete stains are simple to use--just make sure that the floor is free from any debris, oils and sealant prior to staining. Stripping agents are available to help you clean the concrete floor.
Another inexpensive solution to a new garage floor is to cover the space with a sheet of vinyl. Today's vinyl sheets are durable and come in a wide variety of colors and styles. Some of the patterns look like real stone, which would work well for just about any garage floor. You can also find patterns that look like hardwood for a customized garage floor to fit most any budget.
