Vinyl Tile

The additional weight of tile flooring can become a structural issue in some areas of the home, explains Joseph, but that is definitely not the case in the basement, which has the most stable subsurface of the entire structure. That gives a homeowner the freedom to choose large, heavy tiles that may not work elsewhere.

For basements that double as rec rooms, he suggests wood-look porcelain tile. "It gives you that relaxed bar look," he says, but with the durability and moisture resistance of ceramic. Wait up to a year before installing basement tile to give the house a chance to fully settle. Photo courtesy of Photo courtesy of Mannington
