Choosing flooring for your West Houston basement can be tricky. For one, a basement is a part of the home that’s susceptible to water damage caused by leaks or heavy rain. Secondly, a basement tends to receive little natural light due to its location underground, and often automatically feels cold or unwelcoming. When it comes to a basement you need flooring that’s resistant to water, but at the same time is inviting and warm. Below we’ve outlined a couple of flooring options that achieve both ends. We encourage you to read on!
Carpet tile is well known throughout the commercial sphere for its durability and ease of repair. It’s a great option for basements because if water damage ever does occur, a single tile or a section of tiles can easily and affordably be replaced. In light of the cold and often unwelcoming feel of basements, carpet can also add the advantage of insulation and comfort. Carpet is frequently used to finish bedrooms and living rooms because it elicits a feeling of coziness and warmth, which is just what a basement needs.
Although a very different option than carpet tile, luxury vinyl is another great choice when it comes to basement flooring. This material offers the look of authentic stone or hardwood flooring, with the added benefits of durability and easy maintenance. Similar to carpet tile, this type of flooring is installed piece-by-piece, which ensures easy and affordable repairs if water damage ever occurs.
