Our premium range of floor tiles are now on offer

We currently have warehouse stock of our premium range floor tiles which we have reduced in price.  The reduction reflects that, as they are from different batches, you might see slight differences in colour from one tile to another.

Floor Tile Special Offer Garageflex flooring


Floor Tile Special Offer!

We offer our premium floor tiles in both raised disk and smooth texture in a variety of colours.  Not all colours are available so click here to look at what we have on offer.  The special offer price is £7.50 per tile with ramp edges costing £3.99 which includes VAT and delivery.

The tiles themselves are in good condition and if you want to fit your garage out yourself then they could be perfect for you.  If you want to work out how many you need, each tile measures 500x500mm so four tiles make one square metre. 

To give you an idea of how to install them in your garage using just a few simple tools, take a look at our short video clip below.  This shows the process our professional fitters go through when installing a floor for us.

Do give us a call if you have any questions on 01491 579975 or email us at info@garageflex.co.uk.

Plenty of storage space in this New Forest double garage

When MD Alastair Broom went to see this double garage in Brockenhurst, the garage was clean and tidy but lacked any kind of storage.  The brick walls, timber beams and concrete floor meant that the whole garage could do with some TLC to get it looking as smart as the rest of the lovely house.

Once the design had been agreed with the customer, the fitters were booked in and arrived on site in July 2018.  The first step was to clad all the walls with our FlexiPanel which allows our storage accessories to fit onto the wall.  It also gives the whole space a bright finish to reflect the light around the space.

The ceiling was clad as well so that it complimented the white walls and finally floor tiles were laid to complete the transformation.  The customer was so pleased with the job and praised our fitters Peter and Mateusz who worked down at her property for the week.  What a fantastic customer who looked after our lads so well.

Bike Storage Made Easy…

When it comes to bike storage, there are a lot of options on the market.  Some are simple and cheap, others are more expensive but look better and provide a higher quality option.  Here’s a quick run down of some ideas to get your bikes off of the floor and onto the wall, whether it be your garage, shed, basement or lounge!

Bike Nook

For a very simple solution with no installation required the Bike Nook looks like a good option.  It stores your bike up against the wall, freeing up space instantly. It is safe and secure, and great for all bikes as the base expands for any size tread.
