Whether you throw legendary Super Bowl parties, stellar birthday extravaganzas, or epic game nights, a well-designed entertainment room can set the stage for any event. Taking the plunge into creating the ultimate rec room, though, can leave anyone feeling overwhelmed. With a few tips from Home Improvement Leads, you can be sure to include those essential elements that will keep the room versatile and awe inspiring.
Nothing is worse than trying to eat while holding a plate in one hand and a glass in the other. That’s why having ample seating for people to kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves is so important. A large sectional sofa is great for crowds large or small. Sneak in some extra seating with an upholstered ottoman in front of the sofa, as well as spare chairs around the edges of the room.
Whether you prefer a kegerator, a wine fridge, or an old-fashioned soda jerk, a wet bar can really set your entertainment room apart. Wet bars will not only provide you with the perfect beverage station, they also give you added storage space and countertops for all your snacks. Plus, now no one has to miss any of the movies just to grab another cold one from the fridge.
Everyone loves games, and no entertainment room is complete without having a space that fits your gaming obsession. When deciding what type of table to put in your room, consider which activities you and your loved ones enjoy most. If you always stick to card games like hearts, then a table for four would be perfect. However, if your game nights range from Monopoly to Twilight Imperium, then a versatile drop-leaf table will give you more tabletop space when you need it, without eating up any floor space.
An entertainment room is simply not complete without a big screen, and FAVI’s Electric Projector Screen and Pico+ 3D Projector are the perfect addition to give you just that. Each piece is sleek enough to barely be noticed when not in use, but with the push of a button, you are ready to be immersed in one amazing viewing experience.
Movies are meant to engulf you in sound, and the only way to do that is have a good surround sound system set up. If possible, choose one manufacturer and stick with it. Then you are less likely to have communication issues in the future between devices. Similar to your big screen selection, it’s worth it to invest in the best quality your budget can afford. This will give you a better overall experience and fewer headaches down the road.
With some smart choices and a bit of elbow grease, you’ll have the entertainment room of your dreams in no time.
