Making a basement area family-friendly may be a challenge with some basements, but it can be done. When my stepson purchased his home, the cellar was disgusting. It was a dirty pit, dark and dismal with only an area carved out for a washer and dryer. He's lived there more than 20 years now, and over that time he worked at transforming the living space into something truly delightful. There's room for his daughter to have friends over, an extra bathroom, and well-equipped home workshop. He started with nothing but unused space and worked slowly as he could afford to, and the transformation is amazing. If he can adapt his basement for his family's use, so can you!
As children grow up, they start wanting to spend more and more time with their friends, and family togetherness gets pushed aside. When you create your new living space in your basement, make sure you do it with gatherings in mind. Provide the perfect space, and you'll find your kids, as well as their friends, spending the majority of their time hanging out there. You'll get to know all the kids so well that they'll be happy to have you spend time watching movies or playing cards with them, and you'll develop a new kind of family together time. Besides that, you'll never have to worry about where your kids are and what they're doing.
