We always knew some kind of garage floor treatment was going to be a big part of the #garagemakeover project. We have only had experience with a paint-on metallic look epoxy product so we knew we didn't want to tackle that again. Plus, we did not have the luxury of taking everything out of the garage for the amount of time it would take to prep and apply a painted or epoxy coating.
I researched various options relying heavily on the website allgaragefloors.com which has a wealth of great information and reviews of various kinds of flooring options. I ultimately settled on G-Floor vinyl flooring as the best option for my garage. It needed very minimal prep and was ready to use as soon as it was positioned onto the floor.
Once that first piece of flooring was in place, we moved the remainder of the garage contents to that area and cleaned the remainder of the floor. Steph used a hammer and putty knife to remove some large splatter of paint. You can feel large imperfections under the vinyl so it's best to remove these prior to installing the floor.
Just as I thought, the G-Floor is the PERFECT solution to the flooring in my garage. I was concerned that things wouldn't roll well, but that is not an issue at all. Things roll well, it's easy to blow out dirt, it is not the least bit slippery when wet, plus water seems to stay in one place rather than roll to the sides of the garage.
We choose the G-Flooring mainly due to the minimal floor prep--basically all the floor needed was to be cleaned before putting it down.
When choosing flooring for the garage, the amount of prep needed should be a primary consideration. When we did the epoxy floor coating in Steph's garage, it took literally days of cleaning, sanding, etching, grinding and waiting for it to dry all while having to store all the garage things inside for the same amount of time. As we did not have the capacity to store or remove all the garage things at my house, the G-Floor was the perfect solution.
What have you used on your garage floor? Are you happy with your garage flooring solution?

Ladies ... great job on the floor. What do you think about laying down on piece, just to protect the floor from the tires of one car?

I think that would work. They also make special mats for the garage floors for cars to park on. I have this one in my garage (TruContain Containment Mat for Snow Ice Water and Mud -Garage Floor Mat). I got it on amazon.
