Checklist Needed in Order to Achieve the Best Flooring for Basement

Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Family & Parenting
Are you wondering whether installing a carpet in the basement is worth it or not? Now your basic question depends on several factors whether you wish to convert your basement into a useful area for children's play, as a multi-utility area, etc. In case you wish to make the maximum use of your basement, having a proper flooring is a must. There are several options available for basement flooring, like carpets, tiles, wooden flooring, etc. If you are thinking of having basement carpet, you need to consider a few things before actually installing it. Let us take a look at them in detail.

Basement Flooring

As mentioned above, you need to decide your purpose of using your basement before thinking of buying basement carpets or looking for basement floor options. If you wish to use it as a family room or for your kids, you can go for more comfortable carpet options. On the other hand, if pets are involved or you want to convert the basement into utility room, you can go for vinyl tiles or wooden flooring. Secondly, you need to check (and confirm) whether your basement is dry or has chances of water leakage. In case of water leakage, you should not opt for basement carpets as they will get spoiled immediately. In case the basement is moist or damp, there are chances of the mildew or fungus growing on the carpet which can further spoil it. Hence, it is not advisable to use carpet in these cases; you can rather go for tile flooring. Keeping these two major things into consideration, you can look for basement carpet ideas So which is the best carpet for basement? Let us take a look at it.

Basement Carpet Ideas

Carpets are considered as one of the best, most comfortable and relatively inexpensive options for flooring. As carpets are available in myriad colors, patterns, designs, you have endless options to choose from. The price range of a carpet can also suit everyone's budget. A level loop pile is one of the best options for basement carpet. These are also soft and comfortable and can be used if you wish to convert the basement into a family room. Secondly, Saxony carpets are also considered as one of the best basement flooring options in case you have a dry basement. These can also be used for high traffic areas. In either of the cases, it is better to use a cellulose based soundboard, or a dimpled polyethylene beneath the carpet to prevent moisture from affecting the carpet. On the other hand, you can also go for plastic coated carpets if your basement is damp and moist. These are one of the most effective and cheap basement flooring ideas. These carpets can also be used in case your pets invade the basement. It is better to go for shades like light brown, gray, navy blue for basement carpets as these colors don't tend to look spoiled soon. Basement carpet tiles are another options for basement flooring. These are also available in a variety of colors and are easy to install and maintain.

Talking about the maintenance of these carpets, it is essential to keep them as dry as possible and avoid moisture. You may also get products directly from the manufacturers for basement carpet cleaning to keep away mildew and fungus. Secondly, regular vacuuming is a must to protect your carpets. Carpet tiles, as compared to others, require lesser maintenance and can be cleaned easily. Basement carpet cost depends on the variety of the carpet and varies accordingly. Installing flooring for basement can also cost extra and hence, you can do it yourself at home.

This was brief information on different ideas on basement carpet. Lastly, note that if your basement is going to be used frequently and for a long time, it is better to go for cheaper carpets as you will not mind changing them. If not, you can invest in expensive ones and have a comfortable and beautiful area of your own! Ciao!
