Above is the our ancestral house basement which my mom planned to renovate before the year ends. For 2012, I can no longer count on my fingers the many renovation and extensions she made to our house. We, her children thought that the house is for sale, but later on realized that mom wanted to keep it basing on the investment she poured to our abode for 30 years. Now she has many options for basement floors , her mind is confused whether to install hardwood , ceramic tile or vinyl. I go for ceramic since some portion are to be used as store room . How about you? What do you think is best?
