13 Basement Carpet Choices You Don’t Want to Miss

If you want to improve the look of your basement then basement carpet is definitely not something you want to skip out on.

Do you have carpeting in your basement? If you do then you’re already ahead of the curve. If you don’t then you definitely should start thinking about it. After all, basement carpet can be a great improvement to your living space. You can make it a whole lot more comfortable and you can improve your resale value (if you’re looking to sell your house).

Why Basement Carpet?

Okay, so what if you’re planning to stay in your home? Why would you want basement carpet then? The best reason is so you can enjoy it. You want to be able to spend time in the basement. When it has cement floors it’s definitely not a fun place to spend your time because it’s cold. When you put down carpet it can be a lot more comfortable. It helps warm the space up a lot and it makes you want to spend time there.

If you want to turn your basement into a man cave you’ll also want to put in some carpet. It really makes the space more fun to hang out in. Plus you’ll be able to put more of your stuff down there. Things like game systems, pool tables, a bar or anything at all can be a lot more fun if your space feels warm and inviting. By just putting that carpet in you’re going to feel a whole lot better about having people over and just hanging out on your own.

The Cost of Basement Carpet

So how much does it cost to put in carpet? Well, it’s actually really inexpensive to buy or put in. You can find some for around $1 per square foot or you can find it much more expensive. After all, carpet can get high in cost if you’re looking for something high quality or long lasting. If you’re putting it in your basement you’ll also need to make sure it’s water resistant in case of dampness or flooding.

The better alternative is to make sure you finish off your basement before you put carpet in. That’s going to help you keep the moisture and dampness out. It’s also going to help you keep your carpet looking great when you do put it in. You’ll be able to choose whatever you want and make sure it works well for anything you want to use the room for.
