Vinyl is another great idea. Don't confuse vinyl with linoleum like many people do. Compared with other flooring, vinyl is the easiest sheet material to install. Kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular areas for vinyl flooring. Many people choose vinyl in these areas because it's easy to clean. You can find vinyl in prints that look like other floor coverings. It is possible to get vinyl that is printed to look like hardwood floors if you like.
Ceramic clay tile allows for a wonderful deal of customization in terms of colours and displays. However grout is able to be a bit of a pest when attempting to polish these tiles although not including grout, they are painless to maintain. Also ceramic tiling can be a little solid on the legs so if you suffer from some leg or feet issues you might want to steer clear of this option. Using ceramic tiling can furthermore be a little chilly especially in the winter months so make sure you have on a few thick socks while running on it.
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.
