Bonus room thoughts?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all! Its been a LONG time since I posted. I am having a house built and am curious what a good layout would be for the bonus room. I would like to go back to using a projector, but want to keep the room functional for the kids, having friends over, etc. I plan on building a bar at some point and am curious what your suggestions might be. Sometime in Nov or so I will have to run conduit for HMDI, etc. Any thoughts on decent positioning for a PJ that would leave room to add a bar and furniture? I understand Im not providing much info, but I am just starting to think about this. A screen shot of the bonus room from the construction drawings is attached. Thanks!

Are you planning to have the glass slider doors in this room? If so, you probably do not want a projector, since you would have to cover the doors to get the room dark enough for a projector.

The drawing you posted shows a room of 21 feet by 15 feet. Do you want to put the bar in this room? If so, how big is the bar going to be (at a minimum, how many people do you want to be able to sit in a bar at the same time)? What else do you want in the room? How much seating do you need for watching movies/video?

Im thinking of building the bar in the gable bump out. Its about 8x5 if memory serves. Just have it come out from the wall so you can stand behind it in the bump out. Perhaps 5 ft long. AS for glass sliders, I don't think there are any. Just two windows that I will add blinds too so it will be somewhat light controlled...to an extent.
