What Are the Best Flooring Options for the Basement

Are you converting your basement into a livable space? You're going to need to choose some flooring.

Whether you're finishing your basement for the first time or you are updating the look, flooring is going to be a big part of the equation. Choosing the right type of flooring to fit with the overall vibe of your new basement is crucial but not a straightforward decision by any means.

In this post, we're going to look at the best flooring options for a basement and help you choose the one that you'll love for years to come. To design a great basement, you require a good foundation, and your new floor will provide that. 


Comforting Carpet

As a basement flooring option, carpeting is one of the most economical choices.

It's not always the best choice for every room, but it's one of the most comforting and cozy choices in the basement, living room, and bedrooms.

Your carpet will keep the basement feeling warm and improve sound quality if you use your basement as a makeshift movie theatre. It's also best for wandering toddlers to avoid any injuries. The only issue with carpeting is if it floods, the chances of saving it are minimal.


Engineered Wood is Good

Engineered hardwood is a great option for pretty much everywhere in your home, including the basement, providing there will be no water issues. It's also one of the more expensive choices in flooring.

At Marquis Tile, we offer an expansive selection of species and colour.


Luxury Vinyl

Luxury vinyl is the new industry standard for basement applications. It is offered in a click system, glue down or smart lay. This product is perfect for the DIYer. 

We offer a variety of luxury vinyl that resembles wood, stone or porcelain tile.


Porcelain Tile

Porcelain Tile or its old counterpart Ceramic Tile is the most solid choice.  Porcelain Tile is resistant to moisture, is durable and will last for the lifetime of the home.

It is excellent for high traffic environments and will hold up to the daily use and abuse of everyday life.

It is cold to step on, but the use of area rugs will help with acoustics and provide beauty and warmth.
The variety of options is endless.  Porcelain tile can be made to look like most other types of flooring to suit your taste, which means you do not have to settle for one style.  Hardwood, Limestone, Marble, Terrazzo, Slate are all available in porcelain.

To install porcelain tile in a basement is dependent on how level your floor is. A seasoned installer is recommended.

This option would be the most expensive.
