Football Season Is Back—Here’s How to Prep the Home for Game Days

College football season is officially underway, and for avid sports fans, that may mean it's time to make necessary design changes for an unbeatable game day experience

The end of labor day weekend means that the dog days of summer are officially over, and for sports lovers, the only acceptable way to kick off the fall season is by tuning in to the first of many long-awaited college football Saturdays. The start of football season means that everyone in the home will be flocking to the family room to spend hours on end in front of the TV. To create the perfect atmosphere for game days, Housing Design Matters recommends adding a television to the kitchen or game room to make sure that even when cooking, nobody misses a big play. 

A beverage station completes the sports bar theme and creates a centralized space for drinks and snacks, while serious football fans might even consider adding more than one screen to the wall to keep up with a packed Saturday schedule, week after week. 

Since the sports season is always changing, the TV keeps the game room current with the sports du jour: football in the fall, basketball and hockey in the winter, the NCAA tournament in the spring followed by baseball and golf into the summer.

The goal is for your buyers to imagine themselves having fun in your house and visualize how much more enjoyable watching their favorite sporting event will be. That fun factor will be most memorable when it comes time to making a decision.
