Basements can be modeled for a huge variety of purposes, from an entertainment room to a storage room. Basement rooms also make a particularly awesome place for kids to let loose, play hard, and just be kids.
What makes a basement so great for a kid's play room or bedroom?First of all, basements provide plenty of space for kiddos to run around and play in. No need to worry about a child crashing into the bookcase or the china set; basements can be set up to be a worry free space no matter how rowdy things get. Because basements are typically out of the main throughway of the house, kids can make bigger messes without it being a huge bother. Even better, when it comes from the basement, all the kids racket will be less likely to travel through the rest of the house.
Creating a kid-friendly basement doesn't have to be a huge hassle or financial burden. Choosing the right flooring is a significant step into creating a space that is safe and inviting for kids to play in. One can transform a dark, dingy space into an amazing place to play just by installing basement floor matting.
To make the process even easier, here's a list of the top 5 basement floors for kids for both permanent and temporary basement flooring situations. Each pick comes with a description as to what makes it an excellent flooring for basements. Check it out.
1. 5/8 Inch Foam Kids Basement Flooring
EVA foam blocks moisture from seeping into tiles. Mold and other potentially-harmful bacteria cannot penetrate tiles.

The reversibility of the tiles is just one way this basement foam flooring provides creative freedom. This basement floor matting comes in 15 different vibrant colors, which yields the potential for any kind of fun pattern you can come up with. Installing tiles is even easier than choosing from all those colors; just places tiles side by side and they will attach with a seamless interlocking connection. Each temporary basement flooring tile is 2x2 feet in size, so they're easy to handle and move around if needed. But just because they can move easily doesn't mean they need to.
