When it comes time to redo your basement, it’s important to consider what the best basement flooring options are.
There is a lot to keep in mind when deciding on what flooring to use in your basement, so follow along as we give our advice for choosing the best flooring for your basement. A wide variety of flooring is available for basement use with the proper preparation of the concrete slab. Whether you’re installing over concrete, or in a damp area, we have you covered.
There are several major factors that you need to consider when it comes time to install new floors in your basement. A key factor is the condition of the basement floor. Is it a dry area or do you have issues with flooding every year? Is the floor level and ready for installation? Addressing these factors is crucial before determining the flooring you want to use.
There are many flooring options available, but the slab should be treated or addressed if moisture is an issue. LVT, ceramic tile, carpet, and engineered hardwood are all great choices for basement flooring; however, the type of flooring you choose should be factored by the moisture protective measures you need to incorporate.
There are amazing selections of flooring that can be used in finishing a concrete basement floor. Carpet, engineered hardwoods, resilient, and ceramic are all viable options. As always, other factors such as lifestyle, traffic and usage plans for your new finished basement will help drive selection.
