2015 Big Game Ready Living Room Tips | The RoomPlace Chicago & Indianapolis

Whoever said you had to choose between having an organized, comfortable living room and a wide open space to host your next Super Bowl party definitely hasn’t met the creative minds at The RoomPlace or any of our determined Chicago and Indianapolis customers. If you’re gearing up to entertain 10 or more of your closest friends on February 1, we have a few tips to impart on how to get your living room Super Bowl ready.

De-clutter if you are short on time to clean

Let’s face it—not all of us have enough time to give our living spaces the deep clean we’d like. If you’re short on time before guests arrive, a simple de-clutter can do wonders to open up your room and get it comfortable enough for eager sports fans.

Reposition your sectional couch

Thankfully, unless you’ve bolted your furniture to the floor, couches are easy enough to move around. Sit in every seat of your sectional—can you still see the TV? Is there a lamp in the way? If you’re having trouble seeing the screen from any spot on your sectional, reposition it until you’re able to get the full viewing experience.

Divide and conquer

If your living space just doesn’t allow for the number of guests you’d like to invite, consider opening up another room of your home for viewership. Splitting up your guests between rooms will make for a unique experience for everyone—especially if you have a few Seattle fans sprinkled in with your New England fans.

Win Free Furniture or Free TV from The RoomPlace

When’s the last time you bought something that will last you for years? The Super Bowl is an excellent reason to invest in your next sofa, recliner or bring it all together with a new living room set.

Stop in and see us between 1/20 and 2/2 for your chance to win a free HDTV or free furniture. The more you spend, the bigger your free TV will be! Spending $2,000 on a single furniture item will award you a 42” HDTV whereas spending $5,000 or more on a single item will earn you a free 55” HDTV.

If a free TV isn’t your thing, that’s ok—we’ve got an alternative offer. As with the TV, the more you spend, the more you’ll save. Spending $5,000 or more on a single item will earn you $1,000 in free furniture!

Man Cave Makeover

Man Cave Makeover:
Recliners, Tables, and More for the Best Place to Watch the Game

Sports fans across the country can rejoice: NFL and College Football seasons are officially in full swing, and the NBA is close behind. But is your home ready to host the afternoons and evenings of viewing and fandom ahead? Let’s create the perfect room with nothing but man cave ideas in mind:

Let Leather Set the Mood (And Sneak in Some Special Features!)

Have you ever accidentally knocked over a drippy plate of spinach and avocado dip when you stood up to cheer for an amazing play? If you’re anything like us, a couch that doesn’t stain easily due to wild displays of enthusiasm is what you need. Leather is one of the best kinds couch materials for those of us prone to spills since cleanup is so fast: a little soapy water, a nice soft rag and you’re back in the game. As an added bonus, dark leather hides its age by masking everyday stains.

Even better is that leather offers sneaky ways to integrate ingenious features without sacrificing great design. Take our Electra for example. It has LED lights to guide you when the lights are dimmed—how cool is that? The Electra also has drink holders, console storage space, and full reclining capabilities for when you just have to kick back.

Speaking of Reclining Capabilities: Meet the Modern Recliner

Your favorite man cave chair should be one that can practically mold itself to your form. It needs to be comfortable, reliable and durable—just like you. Revitalize an old living room standby and take a spin in a recliner chair. Going with our leather theme, leather recliners are near perfect for everything from leaning back during the commercial breaks to sitting at the edge of your seat during a nail-biting play. Even when your favorite team isn’t in season, this is a man cave chair that will get a lot of use for movie watching, reading and perhaps even a Sunday snooze.

Get At-Your-Fingertips Access

Don’t ruin your man cave experience by forgetting details. Invest in an modern, no frills sofa table to store your stuff. Nachos, remotes, and magazines don’t have to live on the floor or squished and lost in your couch cushions. You can have them all in reach with a no-fuss table.

Give Your Entertainment System a Home

Then show some love to the entertainment system that enables you to watch your team dominate the competition from the comfort of your decked out man cave Use our Room Planner to explore what furniture makes the most sense for your space, be it a compact tv stand or an impressive wall unit.
