Selecting a construction material for the flooring of your home can be one of the most important decisions for a property owner. Not only are these surfaces which will be viewed on a daily basis, seen by family and friends, in addition to being resilient and able to withstand varying amounts of traffic but they must also be aesthetically pleasing. Design components can sometimes interfere with exactly which options of flooring materials are appropriate. For example, if you have an open concept, creating and maintaining a sense of flow throughout each of the different locations - kitchen, living room, dining room, hallway - is important. While kitchens and bathrooms often receive different recommendations for the specifics of a flooring material, based on the potential for water exposure, basements also can benefit from selecting a preferred option.
Finishing a basement can add significant value to your property. Not only is it entirely possible to add another bedroom, but other space can be utilized for laundry, entertaining, exercise, recreation, or anything you can imagine depending on a specific budget. Selecting a flooring material for this space may be dependent on a homeowner’s vision as each property presents different opportunities, but the following are quality options which should be given consideration no matter your plans.
Wood Look Tile
Hardwoods aren’t the best option for basements due to the moisture possibilities and other elements which could potentially harm them - water heater, laundry equipment, etc. but many people prefer the look they can achieve. For this reason, wood look tile is a great option. Able to withstand the traffic and any potential water, these tiles can create the look an owner envisions while providing a more legitimate material.
Resilient vinyl flooring is also a quality option for basement considerations. Serving as a good floor covering, depending on the style or color selected, area rugs could be installed to provide optional carpeted space in addition to the vinyl.
Both porcelain and limestone tiles are also exceptional choices which would be resilient to potential moisture exposure while providing a solid covering. Able to be installed in various designs or color considerations, almost any potential design component could be achieved with either of these two materials. Depending on personal preference, basement flooring materials aren’t very limited or stringent as those in other areas of a home.
