3 Durable Types Of Flooring To Choose From When You Remodel A Basement

There are several things that will make your basement last longer when you remodel so that it does not look worn easily. One of the most important things you can replace is the flooring. Here are 3 types of flooring that are durable and beautiful and that will last for many years.


Laminate is one of the best types of flooring to consider when you are remodeling. It can go over tile, vinyl, or the basement floor easily, and can be laid in planks or pieces to make assembly easy.

Also, laminate is a fraction of the cost of real wood flooring, which is why many people prefer laminate that looks like wood. You can go for natural looking wood, polished wood, or rustic wood. 

Laminate tends to be easier to care for as well since you do not have to wax, buff, and polish it as you do with wood flooring. You cannot mop it with water and soap because this can still ruin the laminate, but cleaning is as easy as sweeping and using some floor cleaner designed for laminate.


Tile is another great choice for your basement flooring if messes are going to be a problem often. Tile is one of the easiest types of flooring to clean, it is durable, and it can be made to look like wood or regular tile.

This type of flooring is practical in areas where drinks and food will be served because these items can end up on the floor. Avoid carpet if you have young children who eat in the basement often since the stains will be difficult to clean.

The only downside to tile is that it is cold and does is not comfortable to stand on for long periods of time, so you do not want to do a lot of tile if you have bad knees that need more support.


While vinyl does not typically look as high end as tile and laminate, it is still a durable choice that is very inexpensive. Vinyl sticks to your floor and can be made to look like tile or wood. This type of flooring works especially well in areas where the floor gets dirty frequently because it can be made with multiple colors to camouflage dirt and hair.

You can buy vinyl for a lot less money than any other type of flooring, so this is a great option if you are on a budget while remodeling.

All 3 of these options can look really nice in your basement. They will last for many years without looking too worn, so consider tile, vinyl, or laminate when you remodel. For more ideas, contact a basement remodeling company like Property Service Agency LLC.
