Common Basement Flooring Questions

What is the best flooring for a basement cement floor?

Much like kitchens and bathrooms, below-grade spaces like basements require flooring that is highly moisture tolerant. Cali Vinyl’s 100% waterproof planks are the safest option, followed closely by rigid core SPC engineered wood flooring like GeoWood, and traditional engineered wood flooring — all of which are warrantied for below-grade installations. Regardless of the floor you choose, be sure to use an effective moisture barrier between the concrete subfloor and the flooring material itself.

What is the best waterproof flooring for a basement?

Vinyl plank flooring is 100% waterproof and an excellent choice for basements and any other moisture prone areas of the home. If having real wood is a priority, an SPC engineered wood floor (which layers real wood over a rigid SPC core) or traditional engineered wood is best.

Is vinyl flooring good for basements?

Yes, a high-quality LVP like Cali Vinyl will be waterproof, extremely durable, and easy to install, making it a cost-effective and stylish basement flooring option.

Is cork flooring good for basements?

Cork flooring is a good eco-friendly option for basements. It is considered to be water-resistant rather than waterproof and therefore works best in basements where the indoor climate (temperature and relative humidity) can be controlled.

What is the best wood flooring for a basement?

The best wood flooring for basements is layered engineered wood, as opposed to a solid wood plank. Engineered wood flooring generally comes in two varieties, SPC (stone plastic composite) and traditional engineered, which stacks several layers of wood into a plank. SPC has the added benefit of a rigid waterproof core, making it slightly more dimensionally stable than traditional engineered wood.

Should basement flooring match the rest of the house?

This is truly a matter of personal preference. The floor you choose in your basement doesn’t always have to match the floor color in your home. Many people choose lighter colored floors for their basements as they tend to brighten rooms with limited or no natural light.

How do you choose flooring for your basement?

First decide if you want real wood or are open to the look and feel of vinyl plank flooring. Imaging and texturing technologies have advanced to the point that many high-quality luxury vinyl plank options bear a remarkable resemblance to real wood. Vinyl also tends to be the safest option if the room sees extreme fluctuations in temperature or moisture levels.
