Did you make a goal to yourself to have your basement finished? Then it’s time to start looking at basement flooring for the finished basement project.
Here at Jim Boyd’s Flooring America we understand that finished basement projects can be stressful if you have no idea where to start on your big project.
To keep yourself from being overwhelmed, we recommend that you sit down with us to go over your flooring preferences.
There are a variety of materials you can use for basement flooring. Here is a list of common basement flooring materials:
- Basement carpet
- Engineered wood flooring
- Ceramic tiles
- And Laminate flooring.
You can select the best flooring for your basement needs by evaluating the traffic and moisture your basement will regularly experience.
You should also write down what type of look, feel and level of warmth you desire for your basement.
If you want a really warm basement, we recommend wall-to-wall carpeting as the best floor selection for warmth. For luxurious feel, go for Berber carpeting. Do not use Berber carpets if you expect a pet to roam your basement. Claws can easily damage this type of carpeting.
Not into carpet?
Then you should consider laminate flooring or engineered wood as a basement floor option. These floors are very durable and look absolutely beautiful in any size basement.
If you prefer a really durable basement floor, always go for ceramic flooring or vinyl tiles. These two flooring are the most durable basement floors. You will not have to worry about water damage and you can always have heating added underneath the tile for additional warmth.
Jim Boyd’s is here to help you add color and patterns to your basement with our quality carpets.
We are here to reduce your home maintenance with vinyl flooring or laminate flooring for the look of wood without the maintenance.
