Tired of concrete? Here are fun fixes for garage floors.

A standard garage floor usually is just plain concrete, and this is fine for most folks. But if the dust and dirt bothers you, or you don’t like the look of it, you might want to upgrade yours. Here are some super ideas that might be worth a try.

Thoroughly clean the floor before doing anything else. You can use whatever cleaners you need to, but make sure it’s very clean and free of grease before continuing. Then measure the area so you will know exactly how large it is when you go to purchase materials.

You can paint it, and this will give it a clean look as well as preventing the constant dusting that comes from concrete. It also will make it less likely to absorb future stains. Use an epoxy paint that is made for garage floors. This paint is very tough and can stand up to the heat of your car tires, as well as most automotive and shop chemicals. You can get your paint ready-mixed or even custom tinted in a variety of colors. Read and follow the package directions for the best results. Don’t forget the prep, as it is very important.

You can buy roll flooring for garages, too. It is easy to install and comes in a variety of colors as well. You can place mats under the cars or do the whole garage floor. Some even collect fluids that might leak or drip onto your floor from your car, preventing messes. It is also a good solution for a cracked or stained floor.

Plastic and rubber flooring tiles are another good flooring material. These are very strong and last a long time and, because they are tiles, if one becomes damaged or stained, it easily can be replaced. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, too.

You can decide which system will work best for you. Check paint stores, auto-supply dealers or online sources for these products and more. This upgrade can even add some real value to your property if done right.
