No matter what’s going on, fall is for football. If you’re ready to make the jump to a full-blown football-watching palace, check out some of these tips to guide you along the way. Make sure you’ve got the perfect setup for game day with some help from the professionals at Closet & Storage Concepts Charlotte.
Plan for Creature Comfort
Remember that old adage that sitting too close to the TV turns your eyeballs into goo? While it’s not quite so dramatic, sitting too close to the screen can cause eyestrain. Make sure you’ve got a big enough space that allows you to sit a comfortable distance from the screen. You may be tempted to forget about lighting, but make sure that you provide enough light to give you eye relief and help you navigate the room without being tackled by the corner of the coffee table. A trusty armchair or chunky sofa completes the room so you can plunk down and watch your favorite team.
Add Multi-Use Utility
It may take some convincing to pull off a room entirely dedicated to football. Show that it’s not just about you by designing a multi-purpose space for the whole family. Custom cabinets with built-in cable management can house your family’s favorite systems securely and out of sight. When the game’s not on, the kids can plug in and watch TV or play video games. Include shelving for books and an audio system to get even more use out of your entertainment center.
You can also add utility with a Murphy bed. A Folding wall bed is an excellent option that allows you to turn your man cave into a guest room when needed. When guests force you to call an audible on accommodations, simply fold down the Murphy bed to give them a bed to stay in. When they’re ready to leave, lift it back into place and get back to the action.
Maybe watching the action on the big screen has you thinking about your own glory days. Show off your own jersey by framing it and hanging it on the wall. Glass display shelving for an autographed game ball or game-used cleats will show everyone you’re a big fan while protecting your prized memorabilia.
