Putting a new flooring in your basement can be a huge job. But what if you have an unfinished basement? Believe it or not, you have more options than you might think. Here’s some tips for if you need to put hardwood floors in your basement before the summer is over.
Face the Truth
Among the reasons why you may be picking a new kind of floor to your basement is because of renovations. If you didn’t like wall to wall carpet and you’re tired of tile, then be sure to give engineered hardwood flooring a go. The design process for engineered hardwood floors allows them to resist moisture damage.
You may not think it is possible, but the cellar may be one of the moist humid components of your home. Another idea would be to try installing the new hardwood over concrete. That is because this kind of wood flooring does not need plywood to function as a sub-floor.
The floating install is among the most common methods you may see used to put in this type of floors, particularly once you get it done by professionals. In this technique, you will notice a cushioned underlayment. This underlayment floats above the pad with no support.
Dream the Design
Here comes the fun part. Designing the look and feel of your new flooring is much more enjoyable than deciding what type of flooring you’ll need. Pick a floor using a lighter color. This will allow you to make a room brighter, particularly when you may not be able to turn on a light. Also try using different lighting colors and paint schemes in the rest of the room to accentuate the appearance of the flooring.
