Kids' Basement Bedrooms?

12 years ago

So the house we're planning to build has a master, one other small bedroom, and a den on the main floor. Then there will be 3 large(14x14) bedrooms in the finished walk-out basement. So the bedrooms have large windows. By the time it's finished and we move in, the kids would be 2 and 5. I personally don't see it being an issue putting them in the basement bedrooms. It's safe, they'll be side by side, and I don't think it would be any different than having them on a second floor. But it seems like a lot of people have issues with small children being downstairs. I'm just wondering what other people think? I mean they could share the small bedroom upstairs or something for awhile, but then the bedrooms downstairs would just sit unused. So I guess what I'm asking is would you have a problem with your children being in the basement? If so, why? And also, what age do you think IS a good age for a child to have a basement bedroom? Thanks!
