Garage with a Step Up

A garage is not just a space to park your car, it’s a room that can have a lot of character, and outfitting it the right way can certainly highlight its best aspects. Take our featured garage, for example, an extra large three bay garage with a step-up that leads to another work area.

This customer decided to go with an all Jet Black Ribtrax floor which makes the garage look very expansive. With the cross-directional design of the tile, even a single color tile floor has shade variances that give it a look that resembles carbon fiber.

How to tile a step up

The best way to tile a garage with a step up is to first design the main level. This will be the same process as any single level garage.

Choose Teal

Next, on the step-up, our recommendation is to put a tile edge on the edge of the step to give a finished look. This, again, is the same as putting tile edges along the side where the garage door opens for that same finished look.

From the step-up’s tile edge, you can continue to install tiles as outlined in our instructions. You will notice that there is a corner where the tile edges must make a 90-degree angle. You will end up receiving two mitered edges that will be cut at 45-degrees to accommodate this 90-degree inside corner.
