Home Additions That Combine Old and New
We are experiencing a unique and interesting phenomenon when it comes to family entertaining right now. This is a rare opportunity to obverse families alternating between activities that span various styles and perhaps even eras of time. It is an intriguing merging of old school classics and the latest modern technologies.
Most of us probably know that video games and media have made huge strides in just the past few years. It is now possible to enjoy a movie or media experience at home that would rival anything you might see in a huge theater or media complex. Families are able to spend a move night together at home that is unlike anything they could have imagined even just a few years ago. Thanks to high definition and technological advances in audio and other enhancements, they can enjoy an at-home movie experience that involves all of their senses. Steaming services and on-demand capabilities also allow home movie nights to involve the very latest releases, further eliminating the need to venture out to a theater.
Yet at the same time, old school activities are making a comeback. Game nights—involving classic board games—are enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Perhaps because they offer a welcome and much-needed escape from all of the gadgets and gizmos, low-tech games and activities provide an opportunity to enjoy a rare occasion of togetherness that doesn’t involve distracting lights and noises. Board games also often encourage conversion and sharing of ideas and memories.
From a design and home remodeling standpoint, families may discover that they need a space that they can specifically devote to these activities. And in many cases, they are willing to make an investment of time and money in order to create that perfect family activity space.
Home additions offer the chance for a family to create the entertaining space that is designed to encourage the activities they like to enjoy, whether that may be high-tech, old school or a combination of the two.
