The money I saved on the flooring paid for the units I had my eye on. Luckily, when I went to order them, they had 20% off - bonus!



Need to get some more pics of them, but for the money I think they are decent enough. I got them from Argos and they were delivered straight into the garage on a date of my choosing.

I've got tons of storage space now, so much so that I might not need any more storage shelving (for now). Helps with the clean uncluttered look.

Next I picked up a tv mount and all the other little bits and pieces I needed. This included one of these, free from Now TV:


So, tv mounted on wall and all wired up and connected:


Also, stuck my old ps3 in the garage as not really used anymore, but will give me internet access plus tv apps:


The tv is nothing special, just an old 32" Technika, (looks so small on the wall) but it'll do for what I need. If it breaks I may replace with a cheap 42" but only if it breaks.

So I had been looking at alternatives and finally settled on industrial carpet floor tiles. Now, I know some people will say that they won't last or will mark easily and what about when they get wet. But my take on it is, I don't really put a car in there when it is wet, I may get some cheap foam tiles for the tyres to sit on and they do seem very tough. Plus the cost was less than half of what I was going to pay.

Before:


After:


I went for two colours, dark grey and anthracite, as I wanted the checkerboard look. I'm quite please with how it turned out.
Looks really good!
Like you I have been deliberating for ages on flooring, I have almost made my mind up for Swisstrax but after seeing your carpet tiles I am having second thoughts!
I am changing the garage doors and the cost is more than I had thought as I am not opting for the budget roller doors you can get but going for the Securoglide Compact. So any cost saving is a bonus.
Do you have a link to the ones you bought please.

Above is the link to the tiles. They seem really good, well made, accurately cut and all the same size.

No dartboard for me...yet. But I do have a little travel fridge in there which does get nice and cold.

Next big purchase for me will be a new garage door but I'm scared to get a quote! If you don't mind me asking, what have you been quoted for the Securoglide Compact?

Thanks for the link, I have just ordered them!

Did you glue yours down?

The quote I have had to supply two doors (Seceuroglide Compact) as a reveal fit in Ivory with a brown frame and full box and the Rollixo control (Somfy) is £1269 per door. The local guy who is supplying will remove both my old doors and take them away, install both new rollers for £500.
I may add the frame and box to be in the same colour as the door and this is about £90 extra for each door. To me this will make the door look bigger and blend in better.

I have been looking at roller doors for ages and I know I can get a door for about £550 each and they will probably be ok, but I am happier with the quality of a British made product with a 5 year guarantee. You pay your money and take the choice!

Yeah I glued mine down, using spray contact adhesive from Screwfix. I'd already sealed the floor using a pva/water mix to cut down on the dust. I thoroughly brushed it again and vacuumed it prior to installing the tiles.

That's good you've ordered them. Hope your as happy with them as I am.

Thanks for the info on the door, it ain't gonna be cheap, that's for sure.
