The nice and nerdy amongst us couldn’t be happier with this development. For a lot of us, it means we can wear what we’ve always loved on our sleeve. It means we can also get a lot more creative with it in our home, as well. Out of all the trends in décor, creating your own little nerdy haven is the one we’re most enthusiastic of.
Remember your media station should be communal
The only thing better than gaming or watching a movie in your newly made den is having people to watch it with. When you’re setting up a home theatre, with multiple speakers and huge screen, remember to consider spacing carefully. You want to encompass all of the seating area in the surround sound, not just the seat that is designated yours. More important is making sure your den has a bit of space for more than one person.
Go chic with your geek
All sorts of nerdery might be cool now, but you still want a certain kind of aesthetic appeal to your home space.
