Default Garage flooring

I've got so bored in lockdown that my garage is actually now tidy, and I am looking at whether it is worth flooring it. It is a typical 2-car 5x6m garage with a small utility area at the back, and has a concrete floor. The floor creates quite a lot of dust and is a pain to keep clean.

I was considering PVC interlocking tiles as an easy DIY solution that won't cost the earth. Anyone got any experience/recommendations?

I did mine in Ecotiles a few years ago you can see here:

I’m really please with them. Put them down on a bare concrete floor that was far from perfect but basically flat. You just knock off any really high bumps.

They look good! I can't quite see the front - I am guessing you have ramp strips by the doors? What did you use to cut the edge tiles?

Yes I’ve got ramps the run along the front and sit just under the door edges.
I just used a hand saw. It was.......tiresome especially with a double garage and in winter - they’re hard as f@ck.
I’ve never regretted getting them or wished I’d done something else - well worth it.

Ive got a similar grey/black tiles in mine too, very easy to lay with a mallet and cut with a jigsaw. Hard enough to jack the car up on and out in axle stands too.

Ordered mine from Costco online, came on a pallet as the tiles are really heavy.
