building a laundry room in basement....

Hello everyone, hope I can get some guidance here. Taking a 120 sq ft piece of my basement to build a laundry room and small office. The problem is that the basement floor is a tad wavy and slopes down heavy in one corner. I am talking roughly 1.75 inches. NO crack's or anything. What would be the better route?? Self-leveling cement or a mud job?? I am not putting down ceramic tiles. Probably putting down rubber tiles or carpet.

Any advice would be appreciated.

thanks!!!!!

Forgot to mention I noticed that self leveling cement is roughly $35 a bag and I dont think I bag is going to get me far! It might get to the point that it will cost alot of money to go the self level route?

Carpet roll and live with it
Anything else will probably need a mud bed, which will be much cheaper at that kind of depth.

The slope is weight to much. you can feel it big time when walking on it. I am going to go for the mud job. As you stated , the self level will be more money then a mud job,


thanks!
