Flooring in Your Basement

Combine floor types

It isn’t necessary to stick to just one type of flooring in the basement - flooring can mark the different purposes each area serves.

Stay warm with carpeting

Not only will carpet keep your feet warm in a cold basement, but it also adds a level of soundproofing.

Use ceramic tiles

Basements are prone to mold and mildew, which is why ceramic tiles are a great option as they are water resistant and highly durable.

Protect the basement from moisture

The basement can be a damp area, which is not ideal no matter how you intend to use it. Seal the floor to prevent moisture from seeping in.

Heat your flooring

In the winter, the weather can be harsh and the house cold. By installing heated floors, your feet will stay warm no matter what.
