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.
For your bed rooms, you need a flooring type that is attractive to look at and would provide a look of comfort in your bedroom. You don't necessarily need a flooring type that is waterproof or stain proof because those things don't normally happen in your bedroom. The best flooring types in bedrooms are hardwood and carpet. But you could basically use any types of flooring that you want; it depends on your preference.
The first thing you need to do is check out your existing flooring. It may not need to be replaced at all. Hard flooring can be refinished, stained, pickled, antiqued, or painted for a new look without cutting down more trees.
