Finally, garage floor tiles are an excellent option for a custom look. There are more styles and colors available than epoxy paint or floor mats, and the tiles themselves interlock for easy installation. They are more expensive and only slightly more difficult to install than floor mats, and range in price from $3 - $6 per square foot. The tiles come in wood, rubber or polyvinyl. Wooden garage floor tiles have a plastic interlocking system underneath them and provide a cushioned surface for standing, but they are noisier to walk or drive on than polyvinyl or rubber tiles. Rubber and polyvinyl garage floor tiles usually interlock themselves, without a plastic frame underneath, and are durable, withstanding up to 50,000 lbs of pressure. They absorb sound, do not damage easily, and maintain their good looks for years. All three types of garage floor tiles are porous enough to allow liquid to drain through them without allowing small pieces of hardware to fall through, making them an excellent choice for flooring if you regularly hose down your garage floor.
The matching color can add to the decor of the house. The colors are oil resistant, therefore can protect the floor. The garage and its floor can be painted to shield the floor, and safeguard it from spillage. The paint can also handle rolling weight, like of car etc. Garage floor tiles can be used.

There are companies which design the garage, in such a way that lots of stuff can be stored. They provide cabinets, shelves etc. Which can accommodate several items on the wall, thereby saving the floor from getting damaged. These can protect garage floor from the impact of items stored.
At the end of the day, theres only two major varieties of garage tiles: theyre either made of rubber, or theyre not. If you tend to work in your garage, then rubber tiles are the way to go. Youll pay more up front, but the additional resistance to damage will make it worthwhile. You might even save money on tools that would have otherwise been damaged by dropping on a harder surface. This is why painted garage floors so often have a layer of rubber garage floor mats as well. If it seems like a waste of money, wait until you drop a tool and put a big crack or dent in your nice, pretty floor.
