If you are a sports fan then you need a great place to enjoy your sports viewing this summer. Although a basement or even some garages can provide a great hangout space, a small space can also be made very comfortable for you and your fellow sports fans. Here are some tips to create the perfect sports viewing den:

Seating
Regardless of the size of your space, seating contributes the most to your comfort. Small spaces may do well with several large chairs and a small sofa. Large chairs and even small sofas can be purchased that can convert into sleeping areas so your den can be more multifunctional. Classic sofa designs for your sports den could also include a sectional sofa that makes the most use of your space. For a fun twist, get seating that matches the colors of your favorite sports team.

Television
The size of television that you need is a matter of personal preference and space. A smaller room might not be suitable for the larger 60-inch televisions that are available. Small sports dens might do well with a 36 to 42-inch television. To save space you may want to mount your television on the wall. If you want greater versatility for viewing, you can mount your TV on an extending arm. Make sure to buy a high quality television – bigger and cheaper usually means poorer picture quality and a television that does not last as long. Read the rest of this entry →
