Entertainment Spaces: What’s Trending for 2018?

One of the easiest ways to keep up with this is scrolling through trends on Pinterest, which, if you have been doing this, you may have noticed some home trends for entertainment spaces this year. To add one of these trends to your custom home in Greensboro, get custom home builder Don Mill Builders to design and build your entertainment space.

Create a custom and open space with plenty of seating.

This year has brought large entertainment spaces to the home, with a lot of available seating for during parties, sports games, and gatherings. Many of these custom entertainment areas consist of seating around the television and a dining section behind that to allow guests to enjoy their food but still have access to the event and conversation.

The open spaces have plenty of lighting and typically have access to the kitchen or a small bar.

Take your entertaining outside.

Probably one of the largest trends this year is custom, outdoor entertainment spaces. Many of these spaces seem to be themed and they are not just patio spaces anymore, they are developing into their own rooms with individual designs and concepts. These outdoor entertainment spaces typically are showing walls and coverings, whether completely enclosed or partially enclosed with cutout windows to allow for an exotic feel. Ample lighting, fire pits, and plenty of furniture that resembles a more interior design are complimenting these areas.

Put a cozy, intimate home theatre in your homes’ basement.

Another entertainment space that is trending is the home theatre in your homes’ basement. This is not what it used to be, however, with a room and theatre seating resembling that of an actual movie theatre. This trendy space has taken a cozy, intimate feel, with plush sofas, low lighting, and surround sound or sound bars. A fun addition to custom add to your home would be a snack bar or small kitchenette in the back of the room.

If you are steel feeling that old-school version with the movie theatre feeling, try modernizing it by adding a sofa to the room and ditch the over-sized television for a curved one instead.
