Installing basement tiles is not the hardest thing in the world to do, in fact you can find a lot of information on this subject by clicking here , but you will need some specialized tools to help you along the way. Tools to cut the tiles for those odd pieces around corners and along the walls. Tools to spread the cement and grout. It is a bit more labor intensive than installing laminate or engineered flooring and will take a little bit more time as you work to get the tiles in their squared-off patterns, but if done right makes an excellent basement flooring idea.
Your kids will love to have a place in the house apart from their bedroom that will be just for them. Design the basement into a kids’ playroom and see them running around and having fun. They will love it, and would be happy to invite their friends over and play. Designers have painted every staircase in a different color which makes going down in the basement interesting and fun. They have also put safety net that can keep the kids from falling down.
Mind you, my grandparents did this without having to finance it. When the banks get involved they have rules of their own. Getting a mortgage is more difficult these days and I doubt any bank would finance a basement only” house. The way they look at it, they need to be able to sell it if you default (not that you would, but that’s how they look at it) and they would never be able to sell a basement with no house. Of course, I could be totally wrong but talk to mortgage specialists to see if your idea is going to work from that angle.
Wall finishing systems are rapidly gaining in popularity. These systems feature fiberglass panels and pieces of trim that fit into PVC framing. Panels covered in fabric offer an attractive finished appearance to the basement without the work of drywall taping and painting. Advantages include durability, moisture- and fire-resistance and the ability to remove panels for access to water pipes and electrical wiring.
