I was doing a staging consultation on a lovely home this week. All was as expected, until I entered the basement.
There, before my startled eyes was the most thorough tribute to any football team I had ever seen. Now I’m not a big sports fan, but I felt the energy in this space as if I had 50 yard tickets for the big game. I felt the wind in my hair, the sound of the crowd, the smell of spilled beer (wait, that part might have been real). Game on!
As I entered the room, I was greeted with a humongous big screen tv and a purple (yet a manly purple) bar with glass block that lit up at the flip of a switch. The faux mountains behind the bar also had a switch to add a blue glow coming from behind them.
In true manly fashion, there were four (that’s 4) loungers set up side-by-side for optimal viewing.
Now have you noticed the ceiling yet (or are you still overwhelmed by it all?) It’s always good weather for a game in here!
Now sports fans…just when you thought it couldn’t get any more spectacular, check out the full bath (from door behind the bar).
But wait….there’s more through the far door in the bathroom…
I know…amazing. But what do they do during half time? Play pool….what else!?!
I don’t think it matters whether you’re a Vikings fan or not…you’ve got to appreciate the energy in this room. And since the basement is typically the last room viewed on a home tour, there’s a good chance any sports-loving guy is going to give a thumbs up for this house!
