It’s all about being right at home for family fun.

It’s all about being right at home
for family fun.

Honey, let’s have the whole gang over on Sunday to watch the big game.” “Mom, can I invite my friends over this weekend for a sleepover, and can we stay up late and watch ‘Frozen’ and ‘Coco’?” “Hey, why don’t we stay at home this Saturday night and watch that latest Netflix movie we’ve been wanting to see.” 

From 15” TVs in the 1960’s to 84” LED backlit TVs in 2018, we all have one or more TVs in our homes—television plays a major role in our lives.  The family TV is usually crammed into our living areas along with sofas, bookshelves, tables, chairs, and lamps.  Generally, it is near the kitchen and entryway, and often this is not a useful spot for private viewing, or is too small for large groups of friends and family.

Well, all this is changing. Check out the latest in new home design: the Entertainment Room! Builders here in the Rio Grande Valley are catching on to the idea that we are becoming a society of “Nesters.”  After a long day at work or school, we don’t want to go out and party; we just want to relax in our homes and catch the news, watch Monday Night Football, or see the latest Netflix movie that just arrived.  But we don’t want the disturbance of kitchen clatters, loud kids, or phones ringing.

The Entertainment Room is a quiet, separate room in the home that houses a large movie-screen TV, a surround sound music system, comfortable stadium seats, and often a wet bar or mini-kitchen.  It is an ideal room for private viewings of movies, sports games, the most recent “Game of Thrones” episodes, or even that “Big Bang Theory” rerun.   This room is a special retreat for families, and is dedicated to a peaceful, undisturbed viewing of favorite programs and shows.
