Creative Tips for Transforming Your Basement into a Playground

October 15, 2014 Guest Post

If your house has a basement, you can easily use play equipment to transform it into a children’s playground where they can work off their excess energy in a safe environment.

It’s a good idea to position the playroom within watching distance of the basement TV room or game room so the adults in the household can keep an eye on the kids while you are both enjoying doing your thing in the basement. You can use a folding screen to create a partial division between the adult and children’s spaces.
