Well, it doesn't have to be red, but here's a nifty home project to keep the family busy over the holidays. Carpet your garage floor with FLOR modular carpet tiles. Does it sound nuts? Well, when the snow starts falling and the salt and grit gets tracked into your house, you'll be glad you did. The carpet will trap slushy winter messes.
FLOR sells a wide range of carpet, from wools for the home to commercial grade, indestructible carpeting for offices, restaurants -- and garages. It comes in 20-inch square tiles. Measure the space, order online and everything needed for quick installation comes in a box. The tiles fit together with special gluey dots.
Among FLOR's many attributes is that if an area gets soiled, you simply whip out that tile and wash it in the sink. If the dog has a gastric event, throw that tile away and put down a new one. And as for the garage carpet, just hose it off in the spring.
