5 Unique Garage Floor Options

Posted by Christie Rioux

Sep 16, 2014 8:30:00 AM

When you think about your garage, you probably do not put much thought into the flooring. After all, that ubiquitous cement floor is the “gold standard” isn’t it?

Actually, that does not have to be the case. Many options in flooring for a garage go far beyond the same old cement. Choosing a different option for your floor can be a strictly practical choice. However, there is no reason not to consider something just for its attractiveness too. Check out these five options and find one that will meet your needs.

  • Granite Gray – This is one of the decorative chip floor options available at bostongarage.com. It offers the look of a high-end granite but in a floor covering that is durable enough to stand up to heavy use. This is an excellent touch for those who love the look of granite throughout the house.
  • Camo Green – If camouflage is your favorite color, why not bring that look into your garage as well. What better option for a garage designed as a man cave than a camo green? This is also one of the decorative chip flooring options, so you can rest assured that it is designed to stand up to heavy traffic and even resist spills.
  • Epoxy Concrete Flooring – If a solid color is more your speed, consider one of the epoxy concrete flooring options available at Boston Garage. These solid coatings have a high gloss shine and will withstand even the heaviest use. Plus, they are available in many different colors so it is easy to match your planned decorating scheme.
  • Garage Floor Tiles – Another option is the Trax garage tile system. These are colorful, durable and easy to maintain. Since it is a tiling system, you have the ultimate in flexibility and they can be used indoors or outdoors.
  • Commercial Garage Floor Coating – A final option is a commercial grade floor coating. This has an added durability factor that makes it ideal for professional garages, shops or anywhere there is especially heavy traffic. Making this choice virtually assures that you will have beautiful and functional floors for years to come.

Summer is winding down and winter will be here before we know it. Living in Beantown is wonderful, but we do have long winters. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an indoor playroom this year? A room where you and your friends – or the kids and theirs – can get some exercise without donning the parka and snow boots.

If you have an unfinished basement, you’ve got the perfect space to create your own indoor winter fun-land – complete with a mini basketball court, a full-sized shuffleboard arena or a bright playroom with chalkboard walls and bean bags for the kids.

If you ever watch home improvement shows or read magazine articles about garage organization, the process looks relatively simple. However, this is a bit of a misrepresentation for many homeowners. That is because these beautifully organized garages generally contain a car or two and a nice, organized tool bench. For families who have busy lives, children and pets, the chances of this happening can be slim—no matter how many organizational tools and tricks you utilize.
