Sometimes a customer comes in and asks this question. And honestly, there isn’t just one answer because it depends on what your basement is like and what you are trying to do in the room. Basements have limitations that vary depending on how that home was built. Sometimes there are lighting and moisture issues. There can also be pipes and ductwork to work around. Tile designed for floors is durable. It resists moisture and is easy to maintain. It comes in many forms, too, and that’s where it can get creative.
There’s no rule that says the same tile should go all over the basement. You could use different types of tile in different rooms or create visual boundaries with borders. Because tile is installed in smaller units, design challenges like pipes and odd angles can become part of a creative decor. As long as the tiles are the same thickness and look good next to each other, you can do it.
Some types of tile are more difficult for the average do-it-yourselfer to handle. You need to have the right tile cutters and know how to install the floor correctly.
