Lifestyles today are often defined by hectic schedules, and more and more people want a special room in their own home where they can relax and enjoy their leisure time. And with the sophisticated technology and wide range of products -- inlcuding plasma TVs, home theater, game stations, and surround sound -- now available to the general public, any room can be transformed into an incredibly fun and engaging space.
Rooms for Fun contains everything consumers need to know to renovate or convert unused space -- whether it's the garage, the basement, or an extra bedroom -- into a room devoted to enjoyment and tailored to their individual tastes and interests. Full-color photographs will inspire, detailed layouts will aid in construction and decoration, and an extensive resource section will help locate manufacturers.
The fun rooms featured in the book include:
Home Theater: audio visual equipment, including the latest information on plasma screen TVs, DVD players, and other electronic devices; speakers and the different ways of installing them; seating options; and soundproofing.
Entertainment Center: billiard tables, ping pong tables, dart boards, game stations, fun accessories, decor, a home bar, and more.
Sports & Fitness Room: gym equipment, small indoor pools, and even basketball courts.
Home Studio: the ideal set-ups for painting, drawing, sculpting, ceramics, writing, and astronomy.
