When looking to do any garage remodeling, customers very often search for two very important qualities in their future flooring: functionality and flexibility. For all the vehicles, improvement projects, parties and games that take place in your garage, you need a garage flooring option that is multidimensional and durable for lives that are just as multifaceted.   

Garage Floor Tiles by Tailored Living

 Tailored Living’s PremierFlex™ garage floor tiles may be flexible in form with their cushioned support and “flow through” design, but they’re also made to be flexible in their everyday functionality for your family.  All Tailored Living garage floor tiles are installed according to your individual instructions, so you can design the pattern, choose the colors, and plan the layout however you please!

But just in case you’re not sure what you can do with all this freedom, here are three garage flooring design ideas that will give you the liberty to transform your garage into a truly personal and adaptable space.

1. Construct a Time-Saving Organization System: Create blocks of color or patterns in separate areas of your garage floor to designate individual parking spaces for your bikes or other vehicles. Color coat parts of your garage floor to show work spaces, storage or any other designation you need, so all your garage space is used efficiently and effectively, saving you time down the road.

2.  Build an Unforgettable Playroom: Utilize your garage floor tiles with a design suitable for a playroom for kids. You can choose colors both you and your kids will love, and add patterns with your colored tiles to create a checkerboard, hopscotch court or winding path for a human-sized game board. This gives kids a great space to imagine and play on rainy days, and any day in between.

3. Create an Envy-Worthy Sports Zone: Whether your sport is football, basketball, baseball, amateur, college or professional, you can bedeck your garage floor with tiles to match the colors of your favorite team! Consider installing a television, some chairs and a fridge for game days, so you and your friends can cheer on your team in the ultimate fan dugout!

All of these ideas for your garage floor tiles, like the tiles themselves, are designed for each and every possible circumstance, event and activity in your garage. But now the tiles are in your court. What are your tiling ideas for your new garage floor? Call Tailored Living today to speak with one of our specialists about the possibilities for your garage.

Garages are inherently one of the hardest places in the house to keep clean because of rain water, tracked-in dirt, and car fluid leaks that add to the accumulation of sawdust and other debris floating around from garage projects. Our garage floor tiles have a unique design that allows easy cleaning and liquids to drain for safe walking or playing. The PremierFlex tiles’ design offers a safety measure by allowing liquids to drain. This design also allows dirt to fall through for easy clean up keeping your garage looking spotless.  Flex flooring tile is ideal for garages, workshops, exercise rooms, kid’s rooms and playrooms, as well as patios or even around the swimming pool. With all the wear and tear garage flooring goes through, it only makes sense to use an option that can endure your day-to-day activities.  By utilizing PremiereFlex tiles, you will have a convenient alternative to the commonly used concrete floor.  The tiles are durable and can handle heavy pressure, not to mention they’re extremely easy to take care of.

Tailored Living Featured on NBC's George to the Rescue

After enlisting in the Marine Corps in 2002, Corporal Watson completed the rigors of Corps training and was deployed to Iraq to proudly serve his country. Assigned to the 3rd Battalion 5th Marines, Watson was the Vehicle Commander for a Heavy Machine Gun/Anti-Armor Weapons Team, an integral unit for combing enemy territory and keeping ground troops safe. Sustaining a bullet wound to the shoulder during his first tour, Corporal Watson rehabilitated, was awarded his first Purple Heart, and quickly returned for a second deployment in Iraq. A second gunshot wound to the knee earned Watson a second Purple Heart, another trip to rehabilitation, and his final opportunity to enlist and re-deploy to Iraq.?It was during his third tour in 2006 that Corporal Watson’s vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb, flipping it, and causing causalities to his whole unit. The physical damage that resulted led to Corporal Sherman Watson’s honorable discharge from the Marine Corps after earning three Purple Hearts.

Returning to his hometown roots in Compton, CA, this proud marine was trying to make a life for himself and his growing family, but following the injuries sustained during his three tours in Iraq, daily home improvement tasks became difficult. Splitting time between school, his family and “The Veterans Alternative” (an organization that promotes therapeutic relationships and conversation between veterans about their experiences), Sherman lacked the time, funds, and experience to accomplish the home improvement projects needed to make his house a better place to raise his children. That is where Tailored Living and George to the Rescue came in.

“Tailored Living worked very hard with George to the Rescue to design and install a functional, organized garage space in order to pay tribute to Sherman Watson and the incredible sacrifices he has made for our country,” states Dan Tafoya, Senior Vice-President of Tailored Living. “Providing time-saving and stress-free organizational solutions to fit his personal needs will let Corporal Watson spend more time on what is most important – his family and his community. We are honored to be part of this show and opportunity to give back to a very deserving man and father.”

Tailored Living’s design team of experts used D’Vinci™– a proprietary interactive design software – to create a functional and fully organized space by adding new cabinetry and flooring that helped transform the Watson family garage into a multi-purpose space for their growing family.

Be sure to tune in on October 13th to watch Corporal Sherman Watson’s incredible garage transformation! Check your local NBC listings for airing times. For more information, click HERE.
