I like this article because it is the most comprehensive look at all the flooring options for a finished basement. I would agree with the writer of the original post that solid wood floors (real) are not an option to consider. I am not sure I would even put engineered wood floors in a basement either. I would have to say I am partial to the high-performance laminate flooring. We recently completed a custom home where they installed this type of flooring throughout the main floor. The look and durability make it an excellent choice for any level price or floor.
