inexpensive basement flooring options
I've been searching this and other sites for months, but I still can't seem to figure out what to do with our basement floor.
It has been finished in the past before we bought the place with carpet over a thick pad. We had a flood in our bathroom that ruined part of the carpet, and on closer inspection the rest of the carpet has old pet stains.
Needless to say, it all has to go. But my husband said I can't pull the rest up until I have a replacement flooring in hand. We have rather low ceilings, so I don't want anything that adds too much height, and we need it to be reasonable and probably DIY.
It's gets cold in the winter, so I'm skeptical of hard tile. What about vinyl tiles?
Any and all ideas are appreciated.
