What type of floors do you recommend? Carpet, wood, laminate?
What wall paint colors are you most happy with? White, creamy beige, soft pastels such as yellow, teal or minty green?
What have you done to your ceilings, especially if they are full of duct work and putting sheet rock or ceiling tiles up would make them too low?
Any other hints? We are going to start getting estimates and when I talk to the contractors I don't want to sound like I don't know what I'm doing...which I don't but don't tell them that!
I'm on Pinterest and have been collecting basement ideas there.
