Floor And Wall Tiles Can Turn A Basement Into Living Space

Updating a basement is a breeze using wall and floor tilesYou’d be surprised how many homes have basements that are not being used for anything other than storage space. Basements can be converted into living space fairly easily, and it’s often a job that can be undertaken yourself. All it requires is a little planning and a little expert advice. Floor and wall tiles are some of the easiest ways to make a conversion, and they come with the added benefit of durability and longevity – you’ll only have to do it the once whereas carpets will need replacing and painted walls will need repainting at some point in the future.

There are many benefits to using wall and floor tiles in your basement, especially natural stone and ceramic tiles. Some of these benefits include:

  • Easy installation,
  • Easy to clean – regular sweep or vacuum and occasional mop or wipe down with a damp cloth,
  • Water resistant – most natural stone and ceramic wall and floor tiles are water resistant,
  • Mold and mildew resistant – the bane of many basements, most tiles are also mold and mildew resistant if kept clean,
  • Light reflective – most basements rely on artificial light and the use of tiles can help to reflect that light making the space much brighter
  • Wide range – there is a huge range of wall and floor tiles available. There will be something to suit all tastes and all decors.
