The hammock is like a secret place for kids once they get in there, and it's unexpected!
The built-ins and color make this basement seem more welcoming than traditional dark basements.
Rooms outside the normal "house" look engage kids' imaginations and encourage them to have fun!
Interesting idea for keeping the washer and dryer in the basement without a dedicated "laundry room".
Stamped concrete is a wonderful flooring option for a basement. It doesn't collect mold if water becomes a problem, it's easy to clean, and doesn't take away much of the height of an unfinished basement space!
The white throughout bounces the available light into the depths of the space, taking advantage of any available daylighting and making the space feel less like a basement.
Every little bit of daylight helps, even if the windows can't be very tall!
Pop-out beds make it easy for friends to drop by anytime, or for sleepovers!
Nothing says "media center" like popcorn and snacks ready for movie-night!
Nooks for hiding in family-friendly basements become places for kids to play hide and seek, build forts, or when they become readers, places to curl up with a book, or just sit and brood!
Two sinks, mirrored across the bathroom. Not needing to be next to each other gives flexibility in awkward spaces.
Why hide the sink when it's a beautiful focal point?
An egress window that provides visual interest in its own right, as opposed to looking at something plastic or metal that is strictly functional, but ugly!
Egress window with plantings make a beautiful basement view.
Ivy climbing up the non-exit path walls! Lovely.
