This one's completely out of left field but since this is pretty much the only board I frequent it's as good a place as any.
My family's getting ready to move into a new house with an unfinished basement. We really could care less that it's unfinished as we plan on making it into a playroom for the kids. However, kids don't tend to enjoy playing on concrete slabs so we'd like to find some type of carpeting or other solution to make it more comfortable for the kids.
Our main concern on the project is cost. We really could care less what it loos like since the kids will do a number on it and destroy it anyways.
I'm also willing to think a bit outside the box if it saves a bit of money. Total square footage to carpet will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 700-800 square feet...the entire space is 800 square feet but there's a large area where the steps come down from the first floor right smack in the middle that won't need carpeted. We wouldn't even be putting the carpet down as we don't really care what the basement looks like so this is 100% for the kids to not have to play on a concrete slab. Nothing other than their comfort and the cost matter at all.
