Entertainment Rooms

Entertainment Room Possibilities

Today more homeowners are looking for ways to reconnect with their families and friends. They’re evaluating their living space and making room for entertainment hubs. They’re creating unique utopias where they can relax at the end of the day.

Your Own Personal Gym

Most people spend a fortune on health club memberships then hardly ever go to the gym. About 80% of members with a monthly contract go to the gym fewer than 5 times per month. Why? Because they lack the time it takes to drive to the gym, wait in line for their favorite machines, and then drive back home. The average person spends $50 per month to belong to a gym. That’s a whopping $600 per year. That’s a lot of money to pay for a membership that you don’t have the time to use.

That’s why homeowners are creating their own gyms at home. They’re investing all that membership money into their own equipment. They can work out in the privacy of their own space and when it’s convenient for them. No more waiting in line to sign in, no more waiting for your favorite machines, no more wiping down machines after an inconsiderate member dripping in sweat leaves the station, and no more loud obnoxious music. Make sure to read our article on home gyms for information on various machines, manufacturers, and they type of workout each machine offers.

Life of The Party

Another way homeowners are utilizing their entertainment rooms is by adding a wet bar and creating their own fun. People who love to entertain find having a wet bar indispensable. The wet bar is the essential ingredient to a successful party. It also allows the host to relax and enjoy quality time with friends and family.

Wet bars come in many styles, wood varieties, and sizes. Though you could go out and buy a pre-manufactured wet bar, many homeowners are opting for custom built wet bars and are going all out when it comes to fixtures and detail. It gives homeowners a sense of pride when they show off their custom built masterpiece that they designed. If you’d like to learn more about the different types of wet bars available and all the fun bells and whistles of a custom made bar read our article on wet bars.
