Not only is wood-look flooring appropriate for the basement, but styles are abundant in several materials that work pretty well in the space.

Ultimate Design Center carries a great selection of basement flooring made of luxury vinyl, laminate, porcelain, and engineered wood. Our flooring store is located in Sarasota, Florida.


Naturally, waterproof porcelain tile is found in many designs, including those that mimic wood. While these refined clay tiles are often plank-like in appearance, their size is smaller.

Therefore, many homeowners prefer this durable tile option when they use a non-grid floor layout pattern.

Luxury vinyl

Choose a high-quality luxury vinyl plank or tile; dampness or flooding won't ruin the new floors since it tolerates standing water.

Look for a brand with a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. WPC flooring is long-lasting, but SPC flooring is superior.


Laminate is a similar but less costly, multiple-layer flooring material available in standard and waterproof styles.

Typically, water is removed within about one day to guarantee a damage-free floor. In addition, your laminate floor will always be warm since it features a fiberboard core.

Engineered wood

Remember that you can have natural wood new floors in the basement if you prefer. Engineered wood flooring has a plywood base that tolerates moisture and a hardwood layer on the surface.

A moisture barrier is laid beneath the planks, as with vinyl and laminate floating floors.
