Help deciding - carpet tiles or roll carpet in basement


I am looking into options for carpeting in my walk out basement. I've finished out the basement except for flooring. There aren't any moisture issues.
I am considering either carpet tiles (as DIY project) or hiring to have carpet laid down. I have 700 ft2 of space to cover. We plan to sell in 2 years so I don't want to dump a lot of money into this project.
It seems that the price per ft2 is comparable between carpet tiles and carpet. I could use some advice from others on the pros/cons of either carpet tile or full carpet to help guide my decision.

Thanks!

Re: Help deciding - carpet tiles or roll carpet in basement


I personally would not do either in a basement.


From a resale perspective I would rate the carpet with pad, not glue down, slightly higher than the carpet tiles.


A decent looking laminate might go higher if the new buyers have kids or pets.
