Happy Friday guys!

Last month I began the task of revamping my shop.  After years of use, it needed a little love!  After installing cabinets and my metal pegboard system, I started on the flooring.  I did lots of research on flooring before choosing which direction I would go.  My old floor was spotted with wood stain, scratches and wood glue (thank you son) and I really wanted to put a floor in that would last.  I searched many kinds of tiles, and ultimately chose Modutile Rubber Floor Tiles.  I specifically chose the Flat Gray Flexible PVC tiles.  There were a TON of reasons I chose this specific brand and tile… They are made in the USA, they are slip resistant, they are UV resistant, mold-resistant, they are quiet to walk on, they are high impact resistant, and my favorite part is that they are easy to install!  I had my whole shop done in one afternoon!

Awwwww…. Makes me smile 🙂  This is where I spend LOTS of time, and I’m more than pleased with the results.  And, I’m happy to report that the installation was a breeze.  I’m certain there is a science to knowing where to start, but I chose to run the first line of edge tiles at the front of the garage.

These fit together like a puzzle pieces, and I used a rubber mallet to pop them in place all the way.  You can see how pretty my existing floor was not 😉

I made my first run after doing the edging pieces, and stopped shy of the walls where I would need to cut the tiles.

I made sure to sweep all the junk and sawdust before laying each row, but that’s as hard as prep got for that!

From that point on, it really was putting together a simple puzzle.  I decided to lay as much as I could and do all the cutting in last.

Installing Garage Floor Tiles

I did have to move my garage cabinets and fridge to get under those, but otherwise everything else in the shop rolls making this part super easy as well.

Now for the cutting in… I literally cut in 🙂  I have some sharp scissors I would use to cut the edge pieces.  You can also easily use a jig saw, but I found that the scissors were an easy alternative.
