Cheap Floor Covering Options for Basements That Look Great

​Basements tend to be a 'forgotten zone' in most houses and seldom get the makeovers they deserve, even if it is just a simple, cheap floor covering. Usually, it has a lot to do with how homeowners don't want to invest a small fortune in a space that's often a recreation area, or something akin to a utility room. There's also the added worry of humidity and moisture issues, so it's understandable how basement renovations drop down to the bottom of the to-do list. The good news is, you can have one (surprisingly) phenomenal basement floor with very little money.
Cheap Floor Covering with Carpet Tiles
Yes, some carpet tiles are, actually, attractive. No, they don't have to look like hideous commercial office carpeting. For the latest designs in modular carpet tiles, visit the Cherokee Floor Covering showroom in Woodstock, GA, and we guarantee you'll be pleasantly shocked with this flooring option. And, since carpet tiles are moisture-resistant, they make a perfect basement flooring.

Cheap Floor Covering with Laminate
When you hear the words 'cheap floor covering,' it's often accompanied by the word 'laminate.' Although it isn't 100% moisture-resistant, the use of a moisture barrier makes laminate a fantastic basement floor option. Couple that barrier with a foam underlayment that is moisture-resistant for added protection against water and humidity, and you have yourself one beautiful looking basement-turned-playroom.

Cheap Floor Covering with Vinyl Tile, Plank, or Sheet
Manufacturers design vinyl tiles, planks, and sheets for installation over concrete areas, so that makes this flooring an excellent choice for basements. What's more, vinyl is easy-to-install, highly moisture-resistant, and durable. Also, you don't have to worry about a complicated gluing process, since it can be laid down over thin sheets of underlayment. 

Cheap Floor Covering with Porcelain or Ceramic Tile 
If you're looking for something a little more on the classy side, then moisture-resistant and durable porcelain or ceramic tiles will give you an eye-catching look. However, to ensure that you end up with an affordable floor, you'll have to stick to the basic glazed styles. Depending upon the state of your basement concrete, you can install these tiles directly on it and, lucky you, will have an impressive cheap floor covering that can hold up to significant water issues, like a flood.
