Home Entertainment Rooms: Your Play Station

 

Do you enjoy PS3 and/or Xbox games? Want to know how to make an ordinary space into a gamer's getaway? All it takes are a few flat screens and iSS's eye for design to transform your room into a play station.

First, we recommend utilizing more than one TV. This way more than one person can play either the same system or two different systems at a time. In the frame of "Go big or go home," we also suggest having a TV or two for sporting events and your favorite show. Sit back and think on that for a moment. Ah, paradise is coming into fruition.
