What do you think of this layout for RaceDeck garage floor tiles? Each tile is one square foot.



(Yes, I know it looks like somewhere a medical helicopter would land and no, it's not for an Elise... I have an MR2 Spyder. I'm just soliciting opinions.)

I'm not much for the cross, not to mention you have white tiles near the center where you'll have the most drips (if you have any.) I'd change it to stripes. What color is the MR2?

I like the the yellow and black... but the cross doesn't really do it for me. Of course, I don't have any better suggestions...

Try an X instead of the cross. Keep the different colored gray tiles, gives it more style. I agree that doing something different is cool. It's just the cross thing does look wierd, swiss wierd.

Or put a checkered flag design in the middle - 7 x 5, same height, just one wider on either side.

Checkered flag idea is great. Are they 7 x 5?

I'd like to keep some red in it somewhere... maybe one row at the top of the whole thing (entrance to garage). But I'd need to move the rest back one tile.

Thanks for the ideas.

OK, the red line will be at the BACK wall, the blue line at the entrance.

There's nothing wrong with that, except for the part that you wouldn't know. The whole right wall is workbenches and cabinets and the whole left wall is shelves.

I'll park on the checkered flag and keep the area inside the yellow/black checks (including them) clear. It will be nice to see the white/black checks when I get in and out of the car.

Actually, I find this much more soothing to the eye... :huh:
