Bored of the usual couch and coffee routine whenever your friends come over? Are you looking for ways to make your afternoons more enjoyable? Are your children complaining of being bored at an increasingly alarming rate?
If you want a break from the mundane and long to put a pep in your tired old home routines, look no further. Here are some out of the ordinary ideas to put some excitement into your home:
Rock Climbing Wall
If you are the sporty type and your friends are the same, a rock climbing wall in your home may just be the perfect touch. These walls can range from toddler-friendly to expert level and can span as high as you like. There’s also the question of installing them indoors or outdoors, and safety issues to consider. But once everything is in place and you’ve got friends or family climbing the wall or enjoying a good hangout session (pun intended), you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of this sooner.
Your Own Private Cinema
It can be as fancy as having a real theatre set-up complete with deluxe chairs and a cinema-style projector or just getting your living room all pimped out with a top of the line audio system, a room dedicated for all your movie watching needs can spell the difference between a humdrum day and something to get you excited about. Even watching reruns can be turned into a more interesting experience when done in a decked-out area with comfortable chairs, a large, high definition screen, and a sound surround system. Don’t forget your popcorn.
Games and Sports
A hoop hanging on your garage wall can already provide hours of endless fun. A pool table, darts, pinball machine, all of these are considered great additions to your home but have you also considered having your bowling alley? Now that there are residential bowling alley installation options, this is no longer considered to be too far out. Think about all the bowling nights you can have with family or friends? No need to get out of the house to practice your throw. Now all the bowling fun can happen right after breakfast.
A Band Room
For all the music lovers out there, this should be a no-brainer. Instruments, recording equipment, a reasonable mike, soundproof walls (you don’t want the neighbors calling the cops on you), and a minibar for refreshments should do the trick. Great for families or even for the corporate bachelor who is a frustrated rock and roll singer at heart.
A band room is a perfect place to unleash all your rock star fantasies or relive the carefree days of your youth. It’s also a great way to practice your musical skills, belt out your guilty pleasures and generally just unwind for the day. And if you’ve got real talent, who knows? Maybe you can even put out a recording of original songs. The possibilities with music are endless.
From the easy to the outrageous, these are all feasible options you can build into your home if you want to make it a little different from the rest. Once you do, watch the visitors stream into your door. Your next problem will be how to get them out.
