3 basement upgrades

Rate the rooms of your house from the best on down-- and if you have a basement, chances are good you'll list it toward the bottom. After all, a basement can be dark and dingy. It seems the perfect home for threadbare sofas, raucous slumber parties, and pet salamanders.

Cozy Dining Room

The Florida room attached to the back of Sharon Kauffman's Indianapolis house was in a sorry state when she purchased the home five years ago. The step-down space had crank-out jalousie windows on two sides, a flat roof with a 7-foot ceiling, and ash paneling stained a dark, dreary color.

Do We Push Kids Too Hard?

Look at your family calendar. Perhaps you see crisscrossing lines and little arrows, parenthetical notes about who is driving where. Maybe there's an occasional question mark decorating the margin near an unresolved time conflict. How do you get one child to soccer practice and another to a piano recital? Or how do you get to your workshop when swimming, gymnastics, and music lessons already fill that time slot?

Parenting with a Sense of Humor

Next time your child tells you to "lighten up," consider this: Maybe you should. Having a sense of humor is essential to surviving-- and enjoying-- kids of all ages. Too often, however, parents get so wrapped up in the daily grind that they aren't playful with their kids, and they overlook humor as an effective parenting tool.

Big Cars Can't Beat the Beetle in Bumper Tests

Don't hit that pole! The bumpers on some large family cars and luxury models have such wimpy designs that they can't withstand low-speed crashes without expensive damage. So says the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, operator of a crash test lab funded by the insurance industry.

Red, Hot & Blooming

Daylilies you know: Bloom for a day, flower all summer, easy care, all that. Savvy gardeners tend to seek out daylilies that have extended bloom time-- all the way from spring to fall-- but these green-thumbers mostly end up planting various yellow cultivars. Dark yellow, light yellow, lemon yellow, golden yellow, yes, but yellow just the same. Well, the heck with that. Enter Red Volunteer, a hort of a different color.

Where Clematis Can Climb

Even without looking, we can guess what's missing from your perennial bed: a vertical accent. Distracted by color and fragrance, many gardeners fail to consider height when choosing plants. Their gardens call out for a clematis that will bloom head-and-shoulders above the rest. But clematis can't reach for the sky alone; it needs something to climb on.

Take a Bough

On the warm side of your windows, forsythia branches glow golden in defiance of the gray and cold outdoors. Forsythias (above), like certain other spring-flowering shrubs and trees, can be "forced" into premature bloom indoors-- up to six weeks before their usual bloom time. The early show begins a week or two after you cut bare branches and bring them indoors. It's worth leaving a forsythia to grow unpruned in a sunny corner of your yard, just to have plenty of long switches for forcing.

Article

Isn't it romantic

Ann Porter's L.A. cottage may never be on a tour of Hollywood homes, but it stops traffic anyway. A thicket of hollyhocks, delphiniums, and foxgloves sprawls right up to its cobalt blue door. The very smallness of the 700-square-foot place, a rental that originally was used in the 1920s as a dressing area for a nearby film studio, also catches the eye. But in a town where illusion is reality, what really sets this house apart is genuine character-- combined with storybook charm that seems right out of an old romantic movie.

The lodge life

Those seeking to slow down the pace of their lives often retreat to the woods, where simple fun swallows the hours. Here, the lodge is the enduring hub of it all-- a cozy place to sit in front of a crackling fire, enjoy a hearty meal, and gear up for the next day. Builder Jeff Kerr and his wife, Eileen, discovered this laid-back idyll at a new home near Nicasio, California, where their family enjoys the lodge life.

Family-fit kitchens

All good kitchens are the same. They have sensible work triangles and appropriate appliance arrangements. They're not too big, nor too small, and they're easy to move around in. Great kitchens are all different-- just like the families that use them. Instead of merely conforming to common design standards, great kitchens are adapted to meet the specific needs of families.
