Why live with a damp, dusty garage floor when it could be smart, safe and easy to clean


Its easy to keep living with a garage floor that creates dust, doesn’t look particularly attractive and is cold and damp underfoot.  But you don’t have to.

Our inspiring photos of garages fitted out with our Floor Tiles show you just how good your floor could look. So you needn’t have to put up with just a standard garage floor.

Inspiring ideas for your garage floor by Garageflex

We offer two types of flooring – Floor Tiles and a seamless Resin coating.  Both offer good anti-slip properties, look great and make the cleaning much easier, plus they both remove the dust element making your garage a much nicer place to be.

Floor Tiles

Our PVC floor tiles each measure 500x500m meaning that 4 tiles cover one square metre of your garage floor. This makes it easy to work out how many tiles you need to cover your space, especially if you are ready to buy online. 

Colours and Textures

The tiles come in a variety of colours so you can choose whatever combination works for you whether it be to complement other colours in your garage, create parking zones or just stand out from the crowd.  We also offer two textures, smooth and raised disk.  The smooth tiles have a sort of orange peel effect so are still good if you are looking for a non-slip option, where as the raised disk provide even greater resistance to slips and let the water naturally roll of the top of the disks.

Here are just some of the colour combinations you could choose.

Installation

There are two options when it comes to laying Floor Tiles in your garage.  Either you can purchase them on our e-store to install yourself or you can ask us to come and lay them for you.  To buy online we offer tiles at £8.85 per tile which includes VAT and delivery.  If you wish to have us install them for you please ask us for a quote which will include our fitters time and travel costs, we do cover the whole of the UK.

Technical Specifications

Each tile measures 500x500mm and has a depth of around 7mm.  They are made from PVC and are manufactured for use in industrial areas so can stand great forces such as forklifts etc. so are perfect for the garage environment.

What about staining?

Tyres can well cause staining to tiles, view our FAQs for more information.  What we do suggest is that if you are going to park your car or bike in the garage then you opt for a darker colour of tile that will minimise the colour change.

New Case Study – New Build in Hertfordshire creates zones for workshop, tools and bikes


When it comes to a new build single garage thats filled with lawnmowers, bikes, tools and the rest of the clutter not allowed in the house, how do you get it into a usable state?  The answer is to let Garageflex design and then install a storage solution that fits with your lifestyle to make it as easy as possible to find what you need, when you need it.

This customer based in Hertfordshire was in the middle of a big renovation on her house and had a new build single garage to house tools and bikes that didn’t have a place anywhere else.  Being a new build, the garage was just bare concrete walls and was in need of some storage to help organise it. 

Mrs R called Garageflex in to see what we could offer her.  Our Design Consultant, Abi Leonard, went to see her to talk through the options.  It was clear that the customer wanted to get everything off the floor and onto the walls and create some order.  Abi created a design which solved her problems by adding in wall storage and creating zones such as the Tool Zone, Bike Zone, Workshop Zone.  And adding in some ceiling storage for items not used as often.

Once our installers were on site, it took just two days to turn the garage into a storage space that is now organised and clutter free.  Mrs R and her family can now find what they need rather than searching through the piles.  And, as the areas are zoned, they know that any tool they need will be in the Tool Zone of their garage.

Time-Lapse Video showing just how easy it is to DIY Install our Floor Tiles


Do you yearn for a nicer garage floor?  Maybe you think its really difficult to do and not something you could possibly do yourself.  Our new time-lapse video shows you how to lay floor tiles in your garage and just how easy it is to do. 

Demonstrated by one our DIY floor tile customers, she sets everything up and completes the job in one day. The end result is a floor that looks fantastic, makes it a safe place for all the family and helps insulate the garage from the cold and damp.

How to lay Floor Tiles Video

The first step is to measure out your garage, making sure you order enough tiles to cover your space.  Each tile measures 500x500mm so when you come to working out how many you need for your space, you simply times the square metre size of your garage by 4 and that will tell you how many tiles you need.  Your next decision is then to decide if you want ramp edges to the front of your garage.  We would always recommend them as they finish the front edge off nicely and give you a smoother entrance by foot or car.

Starting with the Ramp Edges, it is then simply a case of locking each tile into the one next to it and in front, working your way backwards.  The side of the garage can be finished off at the end or as you go by cutting tiles to fit the space with a Jig Saw.  We would always recommend leaving 5mm between your garage wall and your tile to allow for expansion and shrinkage due to heat and cold.

So if you are ready to lay floor tiles in your garage – click here to go to our online store.  Our tiles cost just £8.85 per tile which includes delivery and VAT.  Alternatively, we provide an installation service and to get a quote for this please email us.  If you wish to find out more about our Floor Tiles, click here.

Want a tough yet smart floor finish for your garage floor?


Do you have a dusty garage floor that’s in  need of some TLC? A good non-slip surface is a must, particularly if you have kids and want to minimise trips and falls.  Why not opt for something that combines safety with style.

Floor Tiles are an effective solution to the dusty garage floor problem, provide a good non-slip finish and also look great.  Our floor tiles measure 500x500mm with a thickness of just 7mm.  They fit together via an interlocking system, without the need for any adhesives or fasteners.

There are many benefits to installing Floor Tiles in your garage as they help insulate the floor giving you a softer, yet warmer underfoot feeling.  They effectively reduce dust and any trip hazards from uneven surfaces too.  The range of tiles we use in our garage makeovers, and offer to our customers, are installed in lots of commercial premises who see high levels of heavy machinery traffic. You can therefore be sure that your tiles will create a good solid floor in your garage and also one that will last.

Made from PVC in the UK, Garageflex are delighted to offer these floor tiles in a variety of colours. They are available to buy on our e-store from just £8.85 per tile including delivery and VAT. Installation is fairly straightforward if you are competent in DIY and we suggest using a JigSaw or similar to get a clean line when cutting them to fit your space.

Welcome to our new Design Consultant – Abi Leonard


We are delighted to welcome our new Design Consultant, Abi Leonard, to the Garageflex team.

Abi Leonard - new design consultant for London and the Home Counties, Garageflex

For those of you living in or around London, you may well have spoken to my colleague David Cooper.  David has now left Garageflex and I wish him every success in the future.

I am delighted to welcome his replacement, Abi Leonard, to the team who will be taking over as Design Consultant for London and the Home Counties.  We are very lucky  to have Abi working with us as she and her husband were customers of ours back in 2006, becoming distributors of the brand when they returned to South Africa. 

Having recently returned to the UK, Abi is a natural choice to replace David as she understands the product and has plenty of experience in both the design and installation.   We asked Abi for a quick run down of her previous experience and she gave us a short biography:

“I started my working career in Investment Banking Sales in 1996, working for both Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse for a period of 15 years, focussing primarily on Foreign Exchange.  In 2006 I met Alastair in London when we arranged for our garage to be fitted out. We loved the product so much that we took the Garage Organisation concept to South Africa in 2008. 

Fast forward to 2017 and we have returned to the UK and I am delighted to be part of the Garageflex team. Having been both a customer and a supplier of this incredible system, I can say with the greatest confidence, once you have had this system, you will never want to live without it.”
