There’s no limit to the entertainment amenities you can add to a luxury home. Mark Wahlberg of The Fighter installed a boxing ring in his former Beverly Hills home, while Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia has a his-and-hers salon. More common luxury add-ons include wine rooms, saunas and massage chairs.
If you’re looking for more immersive indoor activities, our Camelot homes have all the space you need to install a high-end entertainment space.
Deluxe Game Rooms
High-end pool and poker tables used to be the pinnacle of the luxury home game room. While those staples are still featured in many professionally designed game rooms, in recent years the ideal game room layout has expanded to include non-traditional platforms including handcrafted ping-pong tables, built-in video gaming consoles and virtual reality equipment such as Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Rumor has it that a stand-up Virtuix Omni system may soon be available for private purchase, though the groundbreaking platform is currently only sold for commercial use.
Luxury Home Gyms
Of the 10-15% of Americans who purchase a fitness club membership, around 67% never use them. Why? For many, it’s a lack of convenience. That’s why many luxury home owners opt to convert a spare room into a personal fitness center equipped with everything you need to get a stellar workout. Ballet barres, yoga mats, and mirrors have joined the classic treadmill as home workout essentials for the modern family. The good news is that your exercise room can look as elegant as the rest of your Camelot home. Companies such as Pent Fitness and Hock specialize in bespoke fitness equipment that’s as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional. With oiled European woods and shiny chromed finishes, your luxury home gym can look as haute as Tom Brady’s.
Home Theater Rooms
There’s no need to brave the uncomfortable seats and hordes of patrons at a public movie house when you have a state-of-the-art home theater room. Modern in-home theaters focus on customization, taking into account the homeowners’ design tastes as well as technology preferences. For example, Kelly Ripa’s new morning co-host Ryan Seacrest decorated his home theater in a log cabin style, with cozy couches, plank walls and a large projector screen. Reclining leather chairs with built-in cup holders and stadium seating are also trendy in home theater rooms. Picture and sound quality can be customized or upgraded to cinema quality with the help of a local technology integration service such as iWired in Scottsdale. If you love the idea of a home theater but don’t like the look of theater equipment, try using an AV cabinet from the Chameleon Collection by Salamander Designs or a mirrored TV from Seura. Stock your home theater with Dolby Atmos sound and Origin Acoustics speakers, install remote access technology and select a 4K LED TV with a diagonal screen size of at least 90” (according to THX recommendations) for the best in-home viewing experience.
