Before tile can be installed the concrete slab needs to be completely level and free of damage, since there is no subfloor to compensate.

Vinyl comes in a wide range of colors and patterns and can be a beautiful flooring choice for any decor. Pros: Vinyl is highly resistant to water damage, is relatively warm to the touch and fairly inexpensive to install.

Concrete is a versatile option that can be painted or stained for a high-end look that is low-maintenance and economical. Cork naturally resists mold, mildew and rot, making it ideal for use in basements.

Pros: Cork is easy to clean, eco-friendly and sustainable, and is a good insulator, making it a great choice for environmentally-conscious homeowners. For a less formal finished basement that is intended as a play space, rubber flooring is a smart choice. Interlocking rubber tiles fit like puzzle pieces and are easy for homeowners to install.

Pros: This cushioned surface provides a high degree of insulation; is soft for walking, standing and playing on; and holds up to moisture. Carpet my seem like a counter-intuitive choice when there are moisture concerns, but in basements that are consistently dry and with the installation of a good sub-floor, it can be a reasonable option.
