Best Flooring Options for Basements

Best Flooring Options for Basements

12 September

Investing in a basement remodel can be an easy way to improve the amount of usable space you have in your home, your home’s value, and your own level of comfort and convenience. As you head down the road to a basement renovation, it’s important to consider numerous factors, including the type of flooring that’s most appropriate for the space. Here’s an overview of what to think about—

Why Does Basement Flooring Matter?

Basement flooring is important for numerous reasons. First, consider that basement floors are usually cold, so you’ll have to decide whether or not you’re okay with flooring that’s cool to the touch. Also consider that basements are a part of the home that’s most at risk of flooding, so if you’re in a flood zone, you may want to choose a flooring material with this in mind.

Types of Flooring Options for Basements

Depending on your needs, preferences, and budget, there are numerous different options for basement flooring. Some of the best options include:

  • Paint. Yep, you read that right—if you’re looking for a low-cost option that still looks good, simply painting the concrete floors can be a great option. Keep in mind that this is best for basements that will be used for workspaces or working out, but might not be as ideal if you plan to use the basement as more of a living area.
  • Tile. Tile is a great option for basements for a couple of reasons, including that tile may look a bit more elegant than paint alone, and it might be a better option in the event of any water damage to the basement. You can also mitigate the issue of tile that’s cold underfoot by installing a basement subfloor first.
  • Carpet. Carpet is a favorite because it both looks good and feels great underfoot. Carpet is cozier, and therefore a great option if you’re converting your basement to a home theatre, family room, or game room. The biggest risk of carpeting, though, is flood water damage. Talk to a professional to learn whether you’re at risk of flooding before installing carpet.
