Choosing the Ideal Area Rug for a Basement Den or Workshop

Whether you're designing a basement family room, DIY workshop or downstairs fitness center in your home, a basement area rug is a great alternative to wall-to-wall carpeting. There are many different kinds of uses for an area rug in a basement, such as to stand on in front of a workbench, to protect flooring in a high-traffic area or for the comfort of children when playing on the floor. You'll find a wide selection of premiere basement rugs in many sizes and styles at Dean Flooring Company.

Durable, Stain Resistant Area Rugs for Basement Dens

We offer a selection of attractive, plush 100 percent stain resistant polyester area rugs, which are ideal for heavy traffic areas such as a family room. With its tough jute backing, it combines style, comfort and durability. There are other colors available in our polyester kid-friendly, pet-friendly area rugs. These area rugs feature color matched binding to prevent fraying, an important benefit for rugs that will experience heavy daily use.

If your basement den has a rustic theme, browse our Lodge and Cabin Rugs. They feature colorful animal and Southwestern themes, are soft and warm to the touch and they are made from durable 100 percent polypropylene or nylon. Most importantly, all of our basement area rugs are highly affordable. For a neutral yet durable approach, our non-skid Sisal Rugs make a great option for the basement playroom, workshop or at-home gym. Sisal fiber is naturally tough and long-lasting, so it's appropriate for placement in busy finished basements. These rugs also feature non-skid backings, so they are a safe alternative to slippery basement concrete or tiling.

Tough Indoor/Outdoor Rugs for a Basement Workshop

If you need an extremely durable basement area rug for your work area, consider our indoor/outdoor area rugs. They're all designed to stand up to just about anything, with non-slip or slip-resistant backing. You'll find styles that are fade resistant, able to stand up for years in harsh environments. These rugs provide added performance in wet environments, too, so they're less likely to become a hospitable environment for mold and mildew that tends to grow in the basement.

Polypropylene fiber rugs also make excellent basement area rugs, especially for workshops and environments where heavy-duty tools and materials are used. 100 percent Hi UV stabilized polypropylene rugs offer a commercial-grade appeal with easy cleaning benefits. You can quickly hose off, sweep or vacuum these rugs as they get dirty or collect debris. What's more, polypropylene holds up well in damp environments, so these rugs are well suited for placement in leaky basements and they won't fade easily if placed in direct sunlight.
