Perhaps one of the best things about basement tiles is that you can install them yourself, requiring only a few simple preparations and a little bit of patience.

Tile flooring is an ideal option for basements because it's both durable and waterproof. In the unfortunate event of a leak or flood, a basement tile floor will dry out and remain undamaged in most cases.

Carpet tiles, or squares, are another popular option for basement floors. Carpet tiles are also easy to install and provide warmth to one of the colder rooms in a home. While they aren't waterproof, it's simple to replace only the damaged tile if a basement floods.
