Suggestions for basement flooringWe just purchased our first home and money is a little tight (we had to buy a fridge, had to repair some things, etc) but we are starting to work on ideas for the basement. We are having it gutted next week (water damage) and then we will waterproof it and do basic finishing (we are leaving the cinder blocks exposed and just painting them), but I would like to finish the floor. Right now it is a concrete slab with vinyl tiles on it. I will remove all the tiles before putting anything down. I would like to use ceramic tiles on the floor, but was told by a neighbor that it probably wouldn't work. Any thoughts, suggestions? I don't want to use carpet.July 31 2007 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
