A buddy of mine gave me 28 of these wood grain rubber floor mats. These are magic to my feet and legs.

I had the black version as you can see. The wood grain printed ones are so much nicer. They interlock at a level surface and make using a broom and shop vacuum much easier. I put the black ones in about two years ago and feel its the best investment I ever made into the shop. These free ones are not enough to cover the area I need so I still have some black ones as “fill in’s” for now. I found the mats on Amazon and have ordered another 18 for about $75.

Besides being friendly to my feet, they give the shop an entirely different feel to it. Looks a lot better! The black mats are about 3/8” thick, the wood grain are about 1/2” thick.

Great looking floor. I put a bunch of horse stall rubber mats in my shop. They are 3/4 and 4X6’ heavy as blazes.

But better than cement.

I use the same interlocking mats in my shop and love them. They also saved me when I accidentally flooded my shop by leaving a nearby hose running while filling a small pond which overflowed saturating the ground and entering my shop through the adjacent outside wall. All of the water got trapped beneath the tiles protecting everything I had stored on top. Boy was I grateful.
