Flooring for finished basement?


This winter I'm going to start finishing off the basement. Its dry as far as basements go. We really want carpet due to the 'warmth' of it because we live in Northern Michigan and it gets cold. Should we just use a vapor barrier /carpet pad combo underneath carpet, or an actual barrier, then pad then carpet .

We love our carpeted basement. Same thing in the basement as we have on the concrete of the ground level floor. Pad and carpet and I not sure what pad ( possibly foam ) but it sure feels good to my old feet.

I wouldn't allow a so called vapor barrier piece of plastic in my basement. Plastic is for storage bags and things of that nature that don't require fresh air.
