Catching a flick, grabbing a drink or watching the game are all ideas that may come to mind when we think about entertainment. With the growing population, especially here in Southwest Florida, an evening out may mean a lot of crowds and traffic, which may cause some unwanted stress when you’re trying to enjoy your night. This is why more and more homeowners are choosing to entertain INSIDE the home as opposed to going out. The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating an entertainment space within the home.
Here are our picks for the most epic entertainment spaces for the home.
Home theaters and media rooms have become very popular in today’s modern home. With so many design choices and possibilities, you can create a space that’s ideal for entertaining whether you have guests or whether you’re just wanting a date night in. Backlight your screen with custom LED lights to add a soft glow around the screen and don’t forget the surround sound! Choose plush seating that’s comfortable, so that you can relax while you’re enjoying the show. You may even want to add a popcorn and drink station, so you don’t even have to leave the room if you want a snack or a glass of wine. Bring the movie theater to you without the crowds.
Make your entertainment space interactive by adding in a custom game room to your home. Hang some TVs on the wall, so that you won’t miss the big game and consider adding some fun games of your own into the space like:
A pool table
Small basketball court
Ping pong table
What you’re able to include in the space will depend on the size of the room and your interests. Not everyone may want a basketball court in the home, but with all the possibilities of a custom game room, you can incorporate whatever you wish into the space.
Outdoor Living Areas
The outdoor living area is king here in Southwest Florida. With the gorgeous sunsets, tranquil breezes and immaculate weather, it’s no surprise that homeowners want to entertain outdoors. Create the perfect outdoor oasis for your home by incorporating the following:
Have a designated area for lounging and don’t sacrifice missing out on what’s happening outside because you are cooking in the kitchen. Bring the kitchen to you! Add a grill and sink area for easy cooking and effortless clean-up, and be a part of your get-together all night long.
The home is an important part of who we are, and as we make it more and more comfortable, it’s more tempting to skip the lines, crowds and stress of going out. Instead many homeowners are opting to cozy up beside the firepit or in front of the movie screen for a relaxing evening right at home. No matter what your preference is, create the ideal entertaining space for you, so that you can get the most out of your modern Southwest Florida home.
