Some of the products seem very easy to do yourself. Does anyone have any tips for doing this? Or any products I should get that would make the installation go alot smoother?
You can lay laminate floor in basements. In your case, it can be installed over the tile.
I just completed my basement floor and I used DELTA underlayment ( http://www.basementsolutionsne.com/delta_flooring.html
) and then installed 7mm laminate flooring over top.
Its an easy DYI project and doesn't require any special skills.
