For your garage, you need maximum durability and toughness. It's all about the attractiveness and the functionality of the flooring type. Concrete is usually used for garage floors but one of the best methods to make it look better is to apply epoxy coatings. These are applied by using a brush or roller to apply it over to concrete. You could also use large rubber mats that would protect your floor from different oils and grime that could damage it.
If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
Your flooring project can be handled in a few different ways. A traditional approach is the most common route people choose. Hardwood and products designed to look like it are the most popular traditional option. This will give your home an elegant and classic look. Hardwood flooring suits those that like antiques and older homes. Hardwood floors give a home a traditional feel.
