still not sure what to do with the floor.

was looking at mototile but it would be £700 and the wife said no. don't want to waste money getting foam tiles or floor paint that will look rubbish after a couple of months.

Hi bud.

I have ceramic tiles on the floor of my garage. They were laid 14 years ago, and have been perfect. Now, the only issue I had was when my son was smaller, he ran into the garage with wet feet and slipped into his bum. So I got some carpet tiles and laid them over the ceramic tiles. It makes a much warmer space to be honest.

You could get black carpet tiles. They're very cheap, and can be very easily replaced if one gets damaged or marked. Have a look on Gumtree. Loads of places sell very good condition, used carpet tiles from business premises that have been refurbed or redecorated.

yep put them down using pva.

Ive got black tiles across the front door & at the door at the back because they will be the ones that could get wet / dirty.

quick update now that the car is tucked up in its onesie

even with this cold weather (hovering around 2 degrees out side) the temp in the garage is always around 8-10 degrees thanks to my central heating boiler being in there. I think this is mainly due to the floor tiles taking the chill off the bare floor.

Like that a lot, I guess you don't use the car in the wet? I'm wondering what the tiles would end up like if you did with water dripping into them.

Nice work

Any recommendations of how to possibly pad or pack some weather protection on the inside of the garage door?
