Getting Into the Zone — Creating a Cool Chill Out Space
Sit back and relax
Pick something super comfortable to sit on, such as a sofa scattered with soft cushions or draped with a faux sheepskin for extra comfort. This chill out den could double as a guest room, so look at sofa beds to make your room more multi-purpose. If you really want to go to town, pick up some fun, comfy bean bags, and complete the look with a nice, thick, soft rug — you can’t beat walking barefoot on them! You might also want to opt for a recliner, whether for crashing out in or for playing video games.
Create a soothing space
Use colors and lighting to make a calm environment for you to take it easy in. Use lamps for low level lighting, and tranquil colors on the walls like fawn, taupe or gray. Stick to neutral colors, and you're certain to feel more relaxed. To complete the look, why not hang a large picture of a beautiful view over the ocean, or a mountain scene? Above all, try to keep clutter to a minimum in this space; after all, you want to feel more relaxed when you enter it, not stressed out by mess.
Once you've kitted out your base, you're going to want to spend a lot of time in there. Line a bookshelf with your favorite books, and for the ultimate movie viewing experience, why not kit out your chill out zone with a 3D HD Projector, perfect for bringing Hollywood into your own home. A good sound system is vital too — one that you can combines well with your projector when watching movies and also syncs with your smartphone so that you can stream your favorite music around the room whenever you want to relax. If you're a gamer, you'll naturally want to hook up your video game consoles in this room too. You’ll be wanting for nothing when it comes to satisfying your entertainment needs.
By following these tips, you'll have created your own chill out space in no time, and you'll wonder how you ever managed to live without it! But relax, time to worry about that later!
