How to insulate basement walls perfectly entirely depends upon what the nature of the space is. For instance, when you insulate your basement walls, are you planning to use it as a living space or bedroom? Will the space be used as a bathroom or laundry area, or probably as a storage space? Once these things are determined, the type, amount and stuff of insulation can then be better determined.

If it is to be used as storage or a utility room, then even lesser amount of insulation might be sufficient as you will not be spending long hours in these store rooms. Particularly, if the room has appliances like washer and dryer in it, these will surely warm the room. Now if the room is going to be utilized much more as a bedroom, living area or bathroom, then more insulation must be applied to make sure the room temperature remains constant as the outside weather conditions vary.

There are a large number of insulation materials one can use while planning to insulate basement walls. For example, XPE foam sheets produced by reputed XPE foam sheets manufacturers in India is a great choice for basements because the edges of the XPE foam sheets can easily be butted up to each other and then very effectively taped off to prevent gaps for air that moves through.
