According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, prospective homebuyers spent a lot of time over the past couple of years planning what sorts of rooms they want in their new homes, so developers are responding.
According to the WSJ, there are several types of rooms that may become “must-haves” in the near future. These include:
Indoor Sports Room
Forget table tennis in the basement! These new rec rooms will have the latest in digital sports at your fingertips. One of the most popular options may well be an indoor golf simulator. Prices for these have fallen considerably as tech has advanced.
Entry-level golf tech uses laser or infrared tracking that reads the spin and speed of your golf ball. This data is transmitted to a virtual golf course that is projected onto a screen.
The golf balls are “soft” and are hit into a hanging screen onto which the game is projected. And don’t worry, as you can attach nets to the sides to prevent errant golf balls from going into other areas of the room.
A Dedicated Metaverse Room
If someone offers to show you their padded room, don’t freak out! It’s likely to be one of the new, specially designed rooms that gamers and other virtual reality enthusiasts use to prevent themselves from banging into furniture or walls while they have their headsets on.
Some of the rooms even boast vibration sensors in the floor as well surround sound speakers for an immersive experience.
A Clean Garage
Some folks are expanding their living spaces into the garage. With the advent of electric cars, that old school grease laden, dirty garage is being replaced with additional living space.Some vendors are even offering sun-rechargeable batteries for your electric car that will also serve as a backup power supply for the home.
A Quiet Room
With more and more people working from home, doing podcasts, teaching courses and other things that require a totally quiet space, soundproof rooms have become a popular request.
Not only is the entire room insulated, but the doors are soundproofed as well. Walls are covered with fabric that absorbs sound and there are additional electrical outlets to accommodate technical equipment.
The Sky’s The Limit
What other rooms can you dream up? Your imagination is the limit!
