When you think of an entertainment room, the first word that might pop into your mind is fun.
Whether you’re lounging on the couch or playing a game, it’s a space in your house where you can go to relax and unwind.
The entertainment room is a gathering spot for your friends and family and in this blog, we’re sharing five ideas to create a unique space in your home.
Bring out your personality
There’s no right or wrong way to create an entertainment room in your home. When designing one for yours, brainstorm with your preferences in mind. For instance, let’s say you’re a wine collector.
You could create a wine/sitting room with comfortable chairs for you and your friends to enjoy a glass of wine.
The goal when designing an entertainment room is to make your personality come to life.
If you want to create an authentic theater room, commit to the design. Paint your walls a dark color and make the TV/projector the focal point.
Consider wall sconces for uplighting and LED lights along the floor/baseboards. These types of lighting will replicate the movie theater experience in your home.
As you design this living space, pay attention to where people will sit. Your entertainment room should be a place where you and your guests can go to relax.
Add oversized chairs, a plush sectional, and plenty of pillows to ensure everyone has a comfortable place to sit.
Much like with other areas of the house, technology can add a sense of convenience and modernity to a space.
Consider remote-controlled lighting, immersive surround sound, and hidden cords. These features can help create a seamless experience in your entertainment room.
A place for everything
Your entertainment space doesn’t have to be one-dimensional.
If you plan to have this space serve many purposes, consider breaking things up.
Let’s say for example you want your entertainment room to also house your home gym. In this case, create more privacy with a sliding pocket door to make each room feel personal and unique.
If this room will double as a dining area, separate the two with a sofa table behind the couch and a large rug underneath the table.
These lines of demarcation can delineate the two areas.
