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.
With advancements and innovations in home design as well as expanding creativity and style, tile flooring ideas now go beyond the bathroom and the kitchen. In the more traditional days, tiles were only used in rooms with a lot of moisture, traffic, rough and tumble. Now, you can use tiles to beautify your living room, make your bedroom more dramatic and so on. With tiles having so many different textures, colors and designs, the possibilities are also endless for tile flooring ideas.
Wood and vinyl floor coverings are popular in the office environment. Wood is also widely used for some types of industrial floors, particularly in places like foundries where certain resilience is required. Because of its resilience wood still has no rivals where dance floors and Gymnasia are concerned. Sheet Vinyl floors are very economic alternative to wooden or tile floors. Smooth vinyl is the cheapest option while cushioned vinyl is more comfortable for walking on. Linoleum is a floor covering that is definitely regaining its popularity and as an alternative there are vinyl tiles which have a huge range of colours, pattern and price.
