There are a variety of specialty rooms that any home owner can have added to, or created in, their home. Whether it is a light filled sunroom, a toned down man-cave, or a home theatre for the family, designing your own specialty room can give you a space that will serve to provide your family with enjoyment for years to come.
There is nothing that makes a home look more incomplete than lack of a front porch. Whether you want a simple front porch to hang your flowering plants on, or a long sprawling wrap-a-round porch, with a little bit of ingenuity you can have whichever type of porch your heart desires.
If you prefer a completely care-free porch that will last almost forever then you may want to consider having concrete poured as the flooring for your porch. However, most home owners prefer to have a porch added to their home using pressure treated wood. A wooden porch is a cost effective alternative that looks great and can last for years if taken care of properly.
Porch railings can be installed using wood, metal or vinyl railings. Wooden railings look great but will eventually deteriorate over the years. Metal railings are cost effective but can rust over the years without consistent maintenance. Vinyl railings will cost more but will last a long time and offer the most maintenance free option. Whichever type of railings you decide to use, consistent maintenance and care of your porch railings will extend their life span and give you a longer time to enjoy them.
An enclosed sunroom can offer many advantages for your family. Being able to enjoy the outdoors without being subjected to the elements is one of the main advantages of installing a sunroom. A sunroom will allow you to be outside enjoying the sunshine while not having the sun beat down on you. Eating outdoors is much more enjoyable when your meal isn’t constantly being threatened by rain storms. And one of the greatest advantages of having a sunroom is being able to enjoy those hot summer nights while not being eaten alive by mosquitoes!
Sunrooms can easily be added to almost any home that has space on the property to accommodate the structure. One of the most important aspects of a sunroom is the windows. With the room being encased in mostly windows it is important that quality insulated windows are used to ensure you get the best results from your sunroom.
Home theatres are rising in popularity. The advances in technology have reduced the cost of home theatre systems to such a reasonable price that almost any family can afford one. If your family loves to watch movies (and what family doesn’t?) then you may want to consider having a home theatre install in your home.
Just about any style can be had when designing a home theatre. Lounging sofas can offer an unconventional seating arrangement for your theatre, or traditional theatre seating can be installed to give the real-life movie effect. Dimmer lights will give off an ambiance effect that is typical in a traditional theatre.
There are a wide range of options available when choosing your home theatre system. Most home theatre systems will provide you with a quality surround sound to match the TV’s picture for a truly immersive experience. Choosing a home theatre system with 3D capabilities will take the theatre experience to a whole new level.
Once banished to the garage, men have begun to fight back and insist on having their own spaces! Man-caves are becoming a favorite among fathers, sons and boys of all ages.
Man-caves follow no strict rules and men have the freedom to create their man-cave any way they want. From the red crushed velvet of a gentleman’s club to concrete and steel of the blue collar working man, man-caves can fit any lifestyle and personality.
Of course the focal point of any man-cave will be the big screen television. Football, baseball and basketball games must be given their due diligence. The only way a game can be properly viewed in all its glory, is front and center on a big screen TV. Being comfortable is an utmost concern for men gathering in a man cave. Comfortable recliners will keep man-cave fans in prime location to catch every minute of the game. Game time would never be complete without proper liquid refreshments; therefore wet bars are always a favorite when it comes to man-caves.
Sports on a big screen, comfort and ice cold liquid refreshments, what more could a man ask for? With the rise in popularity of man-caves, every man should be actively working to create a private man-cave of their own.
