Amtico cork flooring can also be found in a large variety of textures, grain and coloring.
If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
For basements, we all know that moisture is present down there. So you have a very narrow choice of flooring types for your basement. You need a flooring type that cannot be damage by a long exposure to moisture. That means, hardwood, laminate flooring and vinyl are not suitable for basements. One of the best flooring type for basements is ceramic tiles and granite tiles. These are easy to clean and easy to install materials that are capable of withstanding longtime exposure to moisture.
