How To Design The Ultimate TV Room For Sports Fans

It’s been an exciting Football Season, and come February, it will culminate in the ultimate championship game — the Super Bowl! According to Digital Trends, January is one of the best times to buy a new television, with manufacturers and retailers carrying over those great holiday sales prices on large-screen televisions in anticipation of the big game. But what good is a big screen TV if you don’t have an awesome TV room to put it in? Here, we’ll give you the play-by-play of how to design the ultimate TV room for sports fans, complete with solid wood cabinetry and all the necessities.

The Equipment

Unless you plan to buy the massive 219-inch TV that Samsung just debuted at the CES technology show in Las Vegas, or you live in a tiny house, your big screen TV isn’t going to come close to filing your wall space. Adding solid wood cabinetry to your TV room helps to frame your television, and gives you added storage and display space for things like TV remotes, sound systems, and sports memorabilia. If your ultimate TV room is going to be located in a finished basement or bonus room, give yourself the home advantage by also installing a few bar cabinets to house snacks, and a mini fridge to keep cold beer on hand.

The Playing Field

Once your TV room cabinetry is installed and you have your big screen TV hung on the wall, it’s time to get the playing field ready. Above all else, the ultimate TV room should be comfortable. According to ESPN, the average football game runs around three hours. Baseball and basketball games are pretty close to that running time, as well. And don’t forget about golf — coverage of the PGA championship lasts for days! The same goes for tennis and college wrestling. Whatever your favorite sport, that’s a long time to sit on an uncomfortable couch. When designing the ultimate TV room, choose cushy, deep, oversized sofas and sectionals, preferably with reclining seats or ottomans. And don’t forget cup holders and/or end tables!
