Sports Den

Designing a Den for the sports crazy man

All men need a place where he can be with himself or hang out with his friends. In modern times, you cannot have a cave like Batman has; a spare bedroom is good enough to start. How do you do this for the sports crazy man? Here are five tips.

Big screen: You are watching the game in your den because you cannot make it to the stadium. So you will want to watch it on a big screen. A projector allows you to beam a big picture and get the feel of the arena. You will probably want to have the projector connected to your home theatre.

Good Sound: While your home theatre and big screen combo has to accommodate a small crowd, you don’t want to sacrifice anything in the way of sound quality. With most sports channels transmitting in HD and with 5.1 surround sound, you would want a 5.1 surround sound system to get a real feel of the game.

Seating: Unlike regular seats at the cinema, you will want to put plush seating in your den, and amble numbers, so that you and your friends can relax and watch.

Bar: Aha, this is a must have for many men. A built-in bar will ensure that you do not have to keep on going to the other room every now and then, to replenish your drinks and snacks.

Sound Proof: It is quite likely that you and your friends are going to be noisy during a game. You are well advised to have sound insulation material like glass wool in-between your wall layers. Moreover, a sound absorbing fabric layer on the wall is recommended.
