All About Garage Tiles
Turn your garage into your dream workspace, man cave or showroom. We’ll tell you all about garage tiles to get you started on making your dream garage a reality.
A few years back I had the opportunity to have dinner in the home of a really too-rich-for-words person—a friend of a friend kind of thing. Yes, yes he had a nice home and a lot of stuff signed by even richer people, but I couldn’t for the life of me tell you what any of it looked like.
You know what do I remember vividly? The floor of his garage. Not the collection of cars in it, mind you. I was too distracted by the floor. It was tile. In the garage. I didn’t even know that was an option. Mind. Blown.
Have you ever seen a car on a tile garage? It’s a beautiful thing. It’s astonishing how a simple thing like tile can transform the dungeon-like feeling of a garage into a sporty showroom. It made me realize that a garage can be so much more than a closet for your car.
Wanna transform your own garage? Here’s how:
Smooth garage tiles will get you that reflective, seamless look that I like to refer to as the Ooh, Shiny™ effect. They are easy to clean, resistant to oil spills, and come in a zillion colors. Ok, not a zillion. But a lot. You’ve got choices. We suggest checking out the Smooth Ultra-Loc Tiles.
These are showroom quality tiles, resistant to fading, and easy to pack and travel when the time comes. Smooth Surface Tiles are also a great bet. These puppies are backed by a lifetime warranty and can be combined with other TechFloor tiles to get a one-of-a-kind design.
Smooth tiles are also great for patio flooring or for anywhere you need a nice, flat space to do stuff outside. Garage workout space, hockey goal-practice area, personal dance studio—whatever you need. You do you. We won’t judge.

Not all garage tiles are created equal. Some garage tiles have built-in traction, which is kind of like having a super power that makes you grip better and feel cooler as you drive in and out of your garage. Premium Flow Thru Tiles w/ Traction Squares, for instance, are engineered to let liquids drain away from your tires and keep your garage clean and slip resistant.
They’ve got a rubber underlay, which keeps noise down, and they’re backed by a lifetime warranty because everything about garage tiles is cooler than real life. Premium Tiles with Traction Squares are another sweet option, if you want the quiet/slip resistant thing without all the bells and whistles of the Flow Thru model.
The Premium version is particularly good at converting garage workspace (laundry area, work bench, man cave) into something attractive, safe and awesome without clashing with the surrounding environment.
Make Mine a Vented
In case you didn’t realize vented flooring was an option—just me?—they do. And they are everything. These tiles are designed to let everything drain away, keeping your floor dry and slip resistant.
The Venter Grid-Loc models are designed to be UV resistant, which means your floor is going to look like new for a long time. They look badass, they’ve got a 15 year warranty and oh, by the way, they’re the strongest garage tile we’ve got. No big deal. Vented Ultra-Loc Tiles are pretty amazing too.
They look like a race car fantasy, they’re super durable, and they’ve got a bunch of “triangular drainage holes” to keep offending liquids and other drip-drops out of the way. Think of it like a bouncer for your car who always knows who gets VIP service (you) and who gets the boot (oil spills).
So I’m a little excited about garage flooring. You would be too if you saw how many awesome options there are to transform your garage into pure amazingness. Contact one of our customer representatives today and ask them how they can pim–, er, improve your floor.
