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.”

DIY Customer Testimonial

We were contacted by Mr N from West Sussex in 2016 to help him fit out his own garage and he has shared his thoughts below on the whole process and his feelings on the finished results.

Garageflex DIY before and after West Sussex

Mr N from West Sussex shares his thoughts:

“If you are reading this you are already on the Garageflex web site.  If you like what you see and plan to go ahead, your first decision will be do I go for the full installation by the
guy’s at Garageflex or do I DIY.

I decided to go for the DIY route. Why: Firstly both my garages were full of useful items and boxes of items from when we moved into this house 16 years ago, (we had downsized), I had said at the time that after being in the house for 6 months we would clear out anything that could not find a place in the house. So 16 years on I would finally have a clear out.

What would go and what would stay I had no idea. The other reason being I am now fully retried so time rich.

This would-be an interesting DIY project.

But would I be able to get a result anything near like the pictures on the web site. So I decided to just do a bit each month learning as I progressed and sorting out what I would
keep and what units I needed from the range of units on offer at Garageflex.

Was it difficult: no, if you are capable of fixing battens to your garage wall, then you can do
this. Once you have the battens in place the flex panels are very easy to fix to the battens, just cut to the length and screw on to the battens (screws with white coated heads are provided).  Make sure the base panel is level the rest just fit on top. You then just need to decide which units, you want to fix to the panels. 

Am I pleased with the result yes,(see pictures) not maybe as good as the guys from Garageflex would have done, but I have got a lot of pleasure in doing it myself.  The system is very flexible, easy to move sleeves and tool racks etc around if not in the right
place first time, very easy to clean and I trust you agree good to look at.

I am now about to start on garage two, and looking forward to working on that.”
