Flooring

Most of the unfinished basements have a concrete basement floor and to cover that people generally lay down carpeting or wood flooring that traps moisture underneath leaving your flooring susceptible to mold and mildew.

Begin to search all the floor design that you might think will work for your space and the theme you have in mind. It could be a time consuming daunting task, so take your time and finalize a flooring style that will work best for you. You need to consider these three attributes durability, attractiveness and most importantly make sure the flooring option is waterproof.

Walls

Begin by checking the basement walls for any excessive moisture. If there’s moisture on your walls opt for wall paneling. Unlike wooden framing that may rot or metal frames that leave ugly rust spots, walls that are made of paneling have high density foam insulation that is durable. The paneling not only gives you a stylish look but is an attractive choice for your basement walls

Ceilings

Suspended ceilings are a good option for your basement. They allow easy access to ducts, electrical cords and cables. These ceilings are also water resistant. Another important aspect of it all is to be sure which ceiling material will help in noise control in addition to the temperature of the basement. Make sure the material you choose helps in reducing noise from the rest of the home.

Finishing touches

Last but not the least lighting. Lighting is so important to set everything in place. In order for your walls, flooring and ceiling to look perfect with the theme of the furniture, lighting creates the perfect ambiance for your basement.
