Floor choices for your basementKermans Flooring
A finished basement is an excellent way to add more living space to a home. It can also be one of the trickiest spaces in your home for flooring. As the lowest space in your home, the basement is often susceptible to water problems or moisture from humid air. Often times the basement is used as a rec room which brings concerns about wear and tear on flooring. Add to those the common concerns about stain resistance, look and feel… and you’ve got a flooring challenge.
Here are a few recommendations from the flooring experts at Kermans Flooring:
Sometimes you just want the comfort and sound-reducing qualities of carpet. You may want to consider carpeting part of the basement instead of the entire space. We also recommend you ask about moisture resistant padding to help counteract humidity issues. If your basement is also used as a rec room – be sure to check out carpets that stand up to lots of activities, those with short piles or loops such as Berber are great choices.
