I'm looking to switch up some flooring in my basement in a hallway and basement kitchen ~240sqft. I'm looking for a cheaper diy solution. I would like tile looking floor but real tile isn't required. I've been researching forever on this topic, but flooring seems to be the most controversial topic and makes finding the best solution very difficult. My thought right now is to use some sort of vinyl flooring. But there's ton a different types available. In addition because it's a basement in a cold weather environment having at least some insulation would be nice, however floor height is a concern as my ceiling is a bit low. And of course making sure the floor is durable, long lasting and water and mold resistant is important. The way I'm thinking about doing it is using delta fl underlay and then a possibly a floating vinyl tile over it. Armstrong and allure seem to offer a couple lines of vinyl. Does anyone have any experience with these models. Either the sheets, clip vinyl flooring, adhesive tile? Anyone suggestions would be appreciated. My research just seems to be leading me in circles.
