Ask Vicente: Basement Flooring



City:  Highland Park

State:  New Jersey


Due to the recent hurricane I had to rip out the carpet in my basement which is done in a sleek look with a Ligne Roset Didier Gomez sofa.  What do you suggest for flooring? I have admired your work for many decades and would love your input.  The rest of the house has bleached wood floors and bone wool flat weave carpet.  Thank you so much.

Vicente Responds:

Look into self-leveling floors.  You can make it look like concrete, or install terrazzo flooring.  Terrazzo is cured, ground and polished to a smooth surface or otherwise finished to produce a uniformly textured surface.  You can also consider placing cowhides or area rugs on your floor for easy maintenance and a touch of elegance.

If anyone out there wants to see an amazing musical, you should go see Follies. Bernadette Peters is amazing as the lead. It is beautifully produced and performed with the incredible music of Sondheim. I say it is a must!
