When you're searching for your next home-improvement project, you might think about heading out of the house and spending a little time sprucing up your garage floor.
Concrete garage floors can be cold, unattractive, and uncomfortable to stand on if you plan on doing any type of work in your garage. If you want to improve the look and feel of this area of your home, you may want to consider either rolled garage floors or tile.
Rolled garage floors (e.g. rubber) tend to be a cost effective and easy to install flooring option. They are called rolled garage floors because to install them you simply roll the flooring out onto your concrete floor and trim to fit. They are available in a variety of colors and textures to suit your preferences. Some of the most common textures are ribbed, levant (a smooth pattern with a leather-like texture), coin, and diamond tread. The rolled floor makes cleaning up spills easy and will give your feet a more comfortable surface to stand on. They can often be removed and taken outside to be hosed off if needed.
Tile flooring is also a popular garage flooring option. Like the rolled flooring, tiles will protect your garage from dirt and liquids like grease, oil, and antifreeze. One of the added benefits of tile flooring is that it gives you more options in regards to style. You have the ability to mix and match colors to suit your design preferences. Many homeowners often choose a checkerboard pattern or create a border using different colored tiles. Tile flooring generally comes in either an interlocking or peel-and-stick installation method.
Installing a new floor can be a great home-improvement project that can add beauty, safety and value to your garage.
