Picking the best basement flooring can be a tough choice. Usually, basements are darker and colder than other areas of your home and sometimes they get damp and even flooded. For this reason, it’s important you choose a flooring that is both water-resistant and stylish. On the other hand, if you have a finished basement that’s properly waterproofed and remodeled, picking the correct flooring also depends on comfort and style, besides practicality.
With so many flooring options available, it can be quite overwhelming to pick the one that works for you. In this article, we’ll go over our top 3 favorite types of basement flooring and we’ll provide you with the information you need to make a good decision for your floor. Remember that after all, the most important thing is that your flooring is properly installed by a team of professional flooring contractors.
Ceramic tile flooring is extremely popular in bathrooms and kitchens due to their durability and water resistance. Homeowners love this flooring because of the variety of styles and colors you can find. Ceramic tiles are a great option if you want both aesthetics and functionality. With proper installation, you’ll have a long-lasting floor.
Vinyl is a material that’s highly resistant to water. Basements usually have a concrete floor and sheet vinyl is a great option for covering it up. With below-grade flooring, you must be particularly careful due to the moisture and flooding issues that can occur. Sheet vinyl is a fiberglass-reinforced type of flooring that’s installed as a single sheet that was cut to fit the space. This provides a seamless, water-resistant surface on your floor.
Vinyl planks are also known as luxury vinyl planks. The planks are joined piece by piece to create a single layer of flooring. Furthermore, luxury vinyl can replicate the look of natural materials such as stone and wood, giving the illusion of a higher-end flooring. With so many different styles, colors, and textures, vinyl planks are one of the best basement flooring options in the market.
