4 Attractive Basement Flooring Options, Barnesville, Ohio

Choosing the right flooring for your basement will depend on several factors, including the humidity level, how you plan to use the space, and if it’s finished or unfinished. While there are many options available, choosing one can be a difficult process. Here are several popular flooring options to consider for your basement.

4 Flooring Options for Your Basement

1. Carpet

Carpeting is a comfortable flooring choice if your basement is finished and you want to create a plush environment for entertaining. The material can last up to 10 years if it’s well-maintained. Carpeting is available in a wide range of synthetic and natural fiber options, including nylon, polyester, wool, and sisal, and it should be vacuumed and steam cleaned regularly to remove debris and allergens.

2. Vinyl

Vinyl tile can be applied over concrete flooring, and it’s durable and water-resistant. If you have a basement laundry room, vinyl tile flooring can withstand plumbing mishaps and even flooding. It’s cost-effective and available in styles and colors that mimic wood, stone, and ceramic floors.

3. Hardwood

FlooringHardwood flooring is a beautiful choice with many exotic colors and varieties to choose from. It can last a lifetime when properly cleaned and maintained. However, water and hardwood do not mix well and can cause staining and buckling, so if you live in a flood-prone area, it might not be the best option for your basement.

4. Cork

Cork flooring is soft, eco-friendly, and hypoallergenic and provides insulation and noise reduction, which will come in handy if your basement is a popular hangout spot. The material is sold in tiles and can be easily installed. Just like hardwood, the material scratches easily and can be refinished, but it does not tolerate excessive amounts of water.

 

Whatever flooring you choose for your basement, remember to install a sump pump to prevent flooding and protect your floors.
