Hi guys, I'm wanting to tidy up my garage so it's a nicer place to work in and I'm looking for recommendations for cost effective garage flooring.

My garage is an decent sized single at 6.4m x 3.6m so will need a total of just over 23m2 of flooring. The floor is a concrete slab and currently is partially covered with some old carpet and some 5mm commercial swimming pool pool cover off cuts.

I'd rather not paint the floor as I'd like the benefit of a covering taking the chill off the floor and making it a bit nicer to lie on if I'm working under my car. I'm also ruling out carpet as my car can often get put away when wet, so looking for something that will deal with getting wet.

It seems like my options are:

Interlocking garage floor tiles - the price of these is off-putting!

Rubber floor matting - looks like I can get these in 1.2 - 1.5m wide rolls. Not sure how it would stand up to jacking on and using axle stands

Standard domestic vinyl flooring - can get a 7m x 4m roll for around £170, so looks like the cheapest option. I can't imagine it would fair well when using a jack on it though.

What have you guys used on your garage floors? Anything that comes highly recommended, or is definitely worth ruling out? I don't work on my car in my garage that often, so don't need anything overkill, but at the same time do to want to spend a couple of hundred quid if it just falls apart when I do.
