Laminate
Most modern day laminate floors are very durable and resistant to spills. It is important to consider your usage when choosing an appropriate brand. In addition to durability, laminate floors can add style and charm to your basement at an affordable price point.

Ceramic tile
Carrolton ceramic tile will add a sophisticated look to your basement with a variety of colors and styles to choose from. It is also very easy to clean and quite durable. However, ceramic tile will not add any warmth to the basement and will be especially cold to the feet so consider purchasing a stylish area rug or sub-floor heating. For a cheaper alternative, vinyl tile acts as a nice replacement.
