You've added beautiful laminate flooring throughout your house, and now you're thinking about extending it into your basement, bathroom, and laundry room. Don’t do it; using certain flooring materials in damp or moisture-prone areas can be catastrophic. Luckily, Bargain Outlet has a wide range of alternative flooring solutions for your home at one of their 37 locations.
Before you make a costly mistake, evaluate these flooring options for high-moisture areas:
- Ceramic Tile: One of the most durable options, ceramic tile comes in a variety of colors to match any decor. Add tinted grout for a custom look.
- Concrete: With options like stamping and concrete stains, you can create a decorator look for a fraction of the cost. Carefree maintenance is as simple as using a damp mop for cleanup. Concrete can be used in the basement, bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room. Affordable and virtually maintenance-free, concrete is an excellent flooring choice.
- Stone Tile: Similar to ceramic tile, stone can be found in hundreds of colors, shapes, and sizes. Stone requires a bit more labor to cut and grout than other options, but it’s a trendy, attractive choice. Make sure you select clear stones that won’t absorb too much water.
- Vinyl: By far, vinyl tile is the most affordable option. It can be purchased as tile squares or on a roll, making cleanups simple and easy. Modern vinyl is available in a variety of colors and styles, and because it’s petroleum based, vinyl can resist mold, mildew, and water.
