Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.

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.

It is bad for people with allergies, and is often made from synthetics which are not good for the environment. Carpet tiles are worth considering, since they can be easily replaced, one at a time, if damaged or stained. Another bonus is that they can be installed without using a professional installation service. Often these are made from recycled materials.

There are many different types and most have a wood effect finish but there are ones that mimic ceramic, slate or terracotta and even metals such as copper and brushed aluminium. This is usually installed on a thin piece of foam without nails or glue, which makes installation fairly easy but can create a noisy floor. Laminate floor coverings basically have the following layers:core, laminate and protective foil. The flooring is made from lengths of high density fibreboard (HDF) and they tend to be a locking or tongue and groove versions.

A traditional approach is the most common route people choose. Commonly this means hardwood, or a product designed to look like hardwood. This option is generally considered elegant and classic. Hardwood flooring suits those that like antiques and older homes. It is also good if you like your home to look like a "traditional" home. For some homes, linoleum can also be considered traditional because it was popular in the early to mid twentieth century. Finding flooring ideas does not have to be a mind bending experience. The installation process should be the most difficult process. Most people find that so many choices in flooring is quite overwhelming. The trick to finding the flooring that is best for you is to do some research and figure out what is most important to you: price, environmental friendliness, texture, etc. After answering these questions you will find narrowing down the choices much easier. From there you just have to figure out what is going to go on top of your new floors once they are installed!

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.
