- Garage "foam" flooring.
I’m looking to cover approx 10sq meters, don’t want to spend loads but thought I would ask here before I go the high street.
So can anyone recommend a shop to buy from, currently living in Milton Keynes so close would be great.
Thanks allPosted 6 years ago
Maplin (!!) do these
No experience of using them however.Posted 6 years ago
I think costco works out at just over £3 per sq. metre + vat.Posted 6 years ago

Machine Mart? We have some at work, and I bought some for the shed. Seems ok thus far.
I think the Rolson stuff from Halfords MIGHT?? be the same?Posted 6 years ago

That is cheap!Posted 6 years ago
Yup MK costco much cheapness- but don’t ‘knock a crown race off’ against it unless you want little grey foam cookies 🙂Posted 6 years ago
Costco MK, about £14 a pack with VAT if I remember rightly. I did my garage and shed with 3 packs.Posted 6 years ago
Mmmmmm foam cookies

eBay – did my garage which is 6.5 x 5.5m for £120Posted 6 years ago
Looks like a nice idea but I like to jack cars up and use machine tools on the floor of my garage, pretty sure I’d end up either crushed under a collapsed jack or chewing up bits if I used it. But I’d have a nice warm back while I died 🙂Posted 6 years ago
sounds like you want racedeck then coffeeking – youll spit feathers at the price though.
personally – ill be using ceramic tiles in the workshop and my floormat/creaper for working on the car
foam floors are for gyms and storage garages – not workshops.Posted 6 years ago
You didn’t say what the use will be?
Costco for harder foam floor covering.Posted 6 years ago
EBay often has thicker EVA stable matting a lot cheaper than the stable flooring companies sell it. Great for working out on.
The flooring is only for my shed and nothing else, I just wasn’t it got making it a bit nicer under foot.Posted 6 years ago
foam flooring is also good for tool box organisation.
cut to size – then cut your tool shaddows into itPosted 6 years ago
Just bringing this up again as I bought some for my new 16×10 workshop today. Works out at just over £10 for one pack which covers 32 sq ft. Looks like it’s the same stuff as the Maplin link.Posted 6 years ago
+many for Costco. Mine is lining the floor of the little ones play pen.
They also do a specific garage liner but it’s quite a bit more expensive.Posted 6 years ago
andyl, was that the cosco stuff?Posted 6 years ago
That foam matting is pretty rubbish for anything other than hot fiat is using it for or perhaps a gym room
I used it in part of my garage but even a bike workstand loaded with a bike cuts through it in a couple of weeks plus it gets really dirty and you can’t clean it, and any solvents just eat it away
There is a reason its cheapPosted 6 years ago
In my new garage which is where the motorbikes live and bicycles are worked on, I went for a roll of grey vinyl flooring which I stuck down on the concrete floor, with some 1.2mm black matting where the bikes sit. Not too expensive and works a treat.Posted 6 years ago
granny_ring – yeah it’t the costco stuff.
Am having 2nd thoughts about it today though.
I’ve bought 4 packs as I will have some racking and benches that won’t be able to go on it and I figured when I bring in other heavy kit I can lift up the odd tile as they just interlock but I am wondering if it is too squishy and is going to be too fragile. Possibly okay as a strip infront of my work bench but wondering if I should have gone for something tougher like you put in cow sheds or even just some lino.Posted 6 years ago
Is this just a foot comfort thing? Never thought of it before – ours is just painted concrete.Posted 6 years ago
I’ve got rough sawn timber planks on the floor I need to cover so it’s easier to clean and so no small parts get lost.
BigDug has some much tougher interlocking flooring that can be used under a car, trolley jack etc which is £4.45 per 0.5×0.5m tile which is pretty good but still more than some cheap vinyl which I suspect will be easier to clean.
The benefit of the foam was it would even out any ridges in the floor better than a thin vinyl or rigid tiles.Posted 6 years ago
