I think my favourite floor in our house is the basement. It's my personal retreat and getaway from all that goes on on the two floors above it. I can escape to my basement desk leaving my husband to entertain my two year-old upstairs so that he doesn't follow me there - at least for a while anyway. It's not fancy. It's finished with carpet and painted drywall. But that's about it. It has only my humble desk on which my computer and various other technological gadgets like my cameras and equipment lay. But it's my space.
Every room has its intended purpose. The basement room where I

that by the toys littering the floor along with the fact that the couch
cushions always seem to end up on the floor instead of on the couch. My
son likes to use the couch for his toy cars. By the end of the day,
the floor is often only barely visible. It's a good thing that that
particular floor is done in durable laminate. Otherwise, it might not
