Home Luxuries: The Home Theater
You’ve worked hard to get where you are, all those long hours and now you are able to build the home you’ve been longing for. Why not treat yourself with a few luxuries that will be greatly enjoyed at the end of a tough week in the office. One great luxury to consider is a home theater. Think about your longest most tiring work week. The projects and problems have been piling up and you’ve been working nonstop to get them done. Thank God it’s Friday and you can try to relax for the weekend. Sometimes easier said than done though. It can be hard to shut down your “work brain" to take a breather and enjoy a break. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to go home, get comfortable, make your favorite food and tune out the rest of the world, for even just a few hours in your home theater? With raised theater seating, a large projection screen, a media room for all your equipment, great surround sound speakers and even a popcorn machine. This set up will make you feel like you are in an actual theater but you can go in your sweats! Your home theater doesn’t have to be solely your personal escape though, it is a great entertaining area as well. You’ll be the go to house when friend and family want to gather together. Having people over for a movie night will be the highlight of everyone’s week. If you don’t think the standard theater set up works for you, there are plenty of other ways to arrange this room to fit your style. You can use a big sectional couch with a large flat screen TV for a more casual setting. And, you can still add in the popcorn machine because what is a theater without popcorn?! Home theaters can seem like a big upfront cost but with the rising cost of tickets at the theater and the ability to have a place in your home for a little therapy after work can make the upfront cost worth every penny.
