Today, Princeton homeowners have many options when choosing the flooring for their basement. These choices are often dependent on how you are going to be using the space. Keep reading to get help navigating our flooring products as we outline some of our basement favorites.
Your Essential Basement
Concrete flooring is a durable and economical option for maintaining easily cleanable basement floors. Concrete is ideal for basements that have a higher flood risk as the flooring will be water proof.
A Room Conversion
If you plan to turn your basement into a bedroom or spare room, we provide flooring options for your every need. Laminate flooring is a popular choice as it comes in many wood-look designs while having a highly durable, protective finish. The options are unlimited due to the possibilities of different gloss finishes, hand-scraped designs, and all shades of natural hardwood.
Hardwood may also be considered by Princeton homeowners with a planned basement conversion. Engineered hardwood will be more affordable while real hardwood or specialized woods are beautiful investments that can last for decades. Hardwood flooring is an excellent insulator making it a great choice in cold climates and drafty basements. It requires the installation of a subfloor, which is beneficial for your basement as this provides further insulation and keeps the floor in good condition.
Lastly, carpeting with a subfloor install is an excellent choice for a room conversion. Price can easily be adjusted depending on your budget as we carry everything from low-grade to high-end carpet. If carpet fits your Princeton home, make sure your basement is dry as leaky conditions may be conducive to mold.
The Rec Room or Home Gym
Laminate flooring also works well in environments with high activity levels. From watching the big game to using your basement as a home gym, laminate flooring combines style with durability and convenience. In the case of a rec room, adding an area rug provides noise control and insulation, while making the room feel cozy.
