regards to garage floors and flooring, you have a couple of options.
Most garage floors are your run of the mill concrete slab,
rather gray and uninspiring. Still, concrete has made a comeback
after sealing and adding a couple of coats of varnish, it can provide
a utilitarian and cheap alternative to garage floors.
options include using your other hardwood flooring options eg tiles,
slate, hardwood, epoxy resin. These options tend to be more
expensive and epoxy resin fumes means you generally have to clear
out for a few days to let it dissipate.
easiest garage floor option I've encountered is this roll out garage
floor covering that is made of specially formulated polyvinyl. All
you do is roll it out, cut to size and you have a garage floor that
is flame resistant, hides all the cracks and stains on your concrete
floor, is slip resistant and insulates. You can even butt
multiple sheets together for seamless protection. This garage
floor has a unique rib pattern that provides a non-slip floor surface
and also catches the dirt so you track less of it into the house.
Comes in 6 colors and 3 sizes. A cinch to keep clean,
just hose off or wipe clean!
