Imhoff House: Basement Progress + Interior Paint Colors

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

After all the carpet in the basement was pulled up, we had to make a decision on what to put down.  Do we go with carpet, tile or stain?  It was a huge decision, and one that we needed to make quickly.  There are obvisouly plus's and minus's when flooring a basement.  I wasn't sure what exactly I wanted, but I knew I didn't want to carpet the main area.  This basically left tile and stain.  I also knew I wanted to the flooring to be dark ... basically black!  Because the flooring would have to be done the next week, we needed to get paint on the walls.  With a dark floor [either tile or stain] I wanted a light wall.  I feel like my whole house is grey, but really, the colors just worked perfectly.  Before we made an flooring decision, we picked out the paint and we ... I mean Ryan painted the basement bedroom, main living area and the bathroom.  

Here are the colors we used ...
 
 
It looks amazing!  I am in love with the colors [which were used upstairs as well].  
So what do you think?  Stain or tile? Benefits?
