Rooms for Dads

Father’s Day is coming up, so what better time to be thinking about a room that Dad can call his own? Now and then, dads need a getaway as much as the rest of us.

How about designing that movie theatre he’s always dreamed about? I love how this example incorporates a nice, granite countertop — and, of course, super comfy chairs for the Super Bowl or his favorite show or movie.

Or what about a dad-approved billiard room? Here’s an example of how to design a pool room that fits right into your current decor. The pool table blends in perfectly, and the space has all the touches of a comfortable living area, complete with great lighting and oversized prints of the kids on the wall.

Or, go with a game room/movie room combo: poker table, cushy seating, widescreen TV, and plenty of cabinet space for board games. Perfect for Dad and his friends or family gatherings.

And why stop there? Add a bar to make Dad’s getaway the ultimate place to recover from a long week’s work and house projects. I love how this one is tucked under the stairs. 

You can’t talk about great spaces for Dad without showcasing the outdoor bar and grill area. With the added benefit of taking some of the cooking out of the kitchen, this is an investment I can get behind!
