For basements, we all know that moisture is present down there. So you have a very narrow choice of flooring types for your basement. You need a flooring type that cannot be damage by a long exposure to moisture. That means, hardwood, laminate flooring and vinyl are not suitable for basements. One of the best flooring type for basements is ceramic tiles and granite tiles. These are easy to clean and easy to install materials that are capable of withstanding longtime exposure to moisture.
Carpet is very popular in most areas of the home. Wall to wall carpeting allows you to have pretty much whatever kind of floor you want-basic tile or sheeting is fine because it will be covered with the carpeting. Colors, textures and softness are among the choices you have in carpet. Stain resistant carpet is a great idea for families with small children just learning to walk. Carpet is especially good for those who despise cold floors in the morning.
When thinking of ways to brighten up your living space, it is often a good idea to consider using rugs. They come in all different shapes, sizes and colors so it should be relatively easy to find something to suit your needs. Often the contrast in color between the rug and the floor can look perfectly fitting and it adds a little touch of homeliness into the room.
