If you’ve just had a garage extension built onto your property, then perhaps you’re now thinking about what type of floor you should choose. A lot of this depends on what exactly it is that you’re planning to use for the space for. For instance, there’s no point in having a carpet put down if you’re planning on using the space for storage. Similarly, you don’t want a hard cold floor if you’re planning on using your garage conversion as an extra bedroom. That’s why we’re going to brief you on the different flooring types available to you. You’ll have the perfect floor in no time!
So what are your options?
Carpet: If you’re going to use the space as an extension of your downstairs living area, then carpet is likely to be a good idea. It’ll make the room feel more comfortable and on cold days, will help the room feel warmer. You should be able to find a carpet which matches any budget too, so there’s no need to worry about costs that you can’t afford.
Wood: Again, if you’re using the space as an extension of your downstairs, then a wooden floor could be worth mulling over. It’s easy to clean, and can be particularly useful if you have young children who are prone to spilling things! If you’re worried that the room could be prone to damp, then know that wood can work as a moisture barrier. It can also look especially chic with a rug which will combat the problem of it being cold on your feet.
PVC Tiles: If you’re on a tight budget, then this floor type may suit you as it can be fairly cheap. It’s a good practical choice and it’s really easy to maintain. It’s worth noting that PVC is very strong, particularly handy if the room is going to be used for heavy storage.
Resin: This one’s a good option for if you have a larger budget, as resin can be quite pricey. However there are benefits to it due to its efficiency at its job, as well as the fact that it is water proof. Even if you’re just using the room for storage, you can buy resin in a multitude of different colours and styles, meaning that the room can look stylish no matter its purpose.
Rubber tiles: If you’re going to be using your garage as a workshop, then this could work really well for you. This is due to the way that it manages to act as a barrier against any harmful chemicals. Rubber floors are also really easy to put down, meaning that they can be easily replaced.
At the end of the day, it all depends on your garage extension’s main function. Have you any garage flooring tips for us?
