Case Study – North West Wales

Our fitters went to North West  Wales to complete a garage makeover.  The before and after shots of this fantastic garage show just how much of a difference Garageflex made.  Now everything is tidied away, it is bright, clean and safe.  Another great makeover!

Case Study – A Totally Unique Use for This Customer’s Garage!

We’ve seen a lot of different uses for a garage including storing the car, as an office or even a gym but this customer wanted it for a totally different purpose.  Pinball machines.  Our customer loves them and didn’t have space for them inside his house so decided to convert the garage to a Pinball dedicated zone and build a separate triple barn garage next door.  What a great idea!

So whatever you want to use your garage for, Garageflex can help.

Ever Thought Of Applying Feng Shui To Your Car?

It may sound odd but if you do a lot of driving then applying these simple rules could make a real difference to the energy inside your car.

Our top tips to do this are :

  • Clear out the clutter: make sure you regularly clear the car of clutter in both the boot and the passenger area.  This could mean taking out all those parking permits and sweet wrappers or just sorting out the kids toys taken into the car.  Having an uncluttered car almost guarantees good feng shui!
  • Allow in fresh air:  Regularly allow fresh air into the car rather than just using your air conditioning.  Or if you prefer, use a car aromatherapy diffuser to help with different moods.  Try peppermint and lemongrass to make you more energised or use peppermint to provide a more soothing and calming influence.
  • Bring in some good feng shui items: This could be anything from your favourite colours to rock crystals to images that make you feel good.  Don’t hang things from your rear view mirror though as this could be distracting!  Music of course is another positive factor to apply here and can dramatically change your mood so think about some feel good tunes to have around.
  • What’s the best car colour?: You really have to go with what you like as this will boost the enjoyment you get from the car.  Another thing to think about is looking at your birth colour and choosing things to go in the car that apply to this.  Or if you need some inspiration, try this link.
  • And one final tip:  Don’t park your car facing your house as this can create a slightly attacking quality of energy.  If possible, park the headlights facing away.

Ever Wondered How A Resin Floor Gets Laid?

A resin floor is a thing of beauty and one that takes time to get right.  It has to be laid by qualified craftsmen in a four part process which include preparation, a primer coat, the resin coating itself laid to a depth of 4mm and finally a sealant to give protection.

To see just how the resin coating is laid down click here or on the picture below to see a short slideshow on the laying of the third part of the process.


This type of resin floors are now available for the residential garage thanks to recent advances in garage floor coating technology.  Our resin floors provide the highest quality finish you can buy and uses methacrylate resin which is the hardest wearing of all. 

Our resin floors are available in the following colours.
