Benefits of Interlocking Floor Mats

If you’ve been wishing that your garage was a better place to work, you’re going to love learning about the benefits of an interlocking rubber floor mat. Not only are these floors nice looking they’re easy to install and they can even increase the value of your home. Read on to learn about some of the benefits of these great flooring products.

Improve the Appearance of Your Garage

One of the primary reasons that an interlocking floor mat system is so popular is because of how much better your garage will look after installation. You can choose from a variety of colors and designs and can even design your own. Your garage will go from ordinary to looking like a professional shop. You can even purchase specialty branded mats – for example Harley Davidson offers a kit in orange and black!

Safety First

Most mat systems also improve the general safety of your work area. Mats, when properly installed, will create a non-slip surface even when wet. Also, they can help prevent fatigue when standing for long periods of time because they cushion the cement floor.

Easy to Install

The best thing about interlocking rubber floor tiles is how easy they are to install. They really are like big puzzle pieces that you simply fit together. Unlike concrete paints or epoxies that require a bit of labor to put down, interlocking rubber floor mats are a piece of cake. Simply make sure that your existing floor is as clean as you can get it. Also be sure to measure the floor carefully before ordering – most manufacturers recommend that you order a little more than you need in case of mistakes or in case you need to cut some mats down to create a perfect fit.

Some systems have a self-adhesive backing, others simply snap together without adhesive. Determine in advance which type will work best for your situation. In garage applications the self-adhesive type is generally more durable.

Increase Your Home’s Value

When we think of home improvements, few of us think “How can I improve my garage?” Updating your garage can make a difference. Interlocking foam floor mats can really brighten up the appearance of a garage. They’re also easy to keep clean – most resist grease, oil and dirt.

Important Note – There are different types of interlocking floor tiles. Some are specifically made for use with automobiles, while others are made for other purposes like martial arts, aerobics and gym flooring uses. Be sure to check to see how the manufacturer recommends using their product before placing an order.

There are several places to order from so be sure to do a bit of comparison shopping for the best deal. Since interlocking foam floor mats are relatively bulky you can wind up spending a bit of money on shipping. Some companies offer free shipping depending on the amount of the order, while others charge less for the tiles themselves but have substantial shipping fees. So when you do compare prices be sure to check the total cost of the order from each retailer, including the shipping costs.

As you can see, interlocking floor mats can be a great way to spruce up your home. Take some time to decide what kind of design and color scheme works best for you and do some comparison shopping. Before you know it your garage will be the envy of the neighborhood!
