A big trend during the building of a new home these days is creating a home theater. The possibilities are virtually limitless when it comes to the technologies and accessories available to create a home theater.
Home theater is difficult to define because in actuality it's really just a vague term for how you approach home entertainment. Generally speaking, a home theater system is a combination of electronic components designed to recreate the experience of watching a movie in a theater.
If you're the type of person that likes to enjoy quality time with friends and family, you may want to incorporate a game room in your new home design. When creating a game room you'll want to combine function, fun and design to create a living space the whole family can enjoy. Be creative when deciding what games and decor you want in your new space. Maybe even consider a classic game or two from your childhood.
The first step in planning a game room is to pick a spacious spot in your home. A large den or loft will work nicely if your house plan doesn't already specify a game, recreation or media room.
The size and layout of your room will determine the number and size of items you will be able to physically fit into the space. Have reasonable expectations, if you have small area, a large ping-pong table might interrupt the flow of the room. For smaller spaces, vertical standing arcade games and dartboards might work better. For games that require electricity, consider how many electrical outlets you will need and where they need to be located.
