With a new season of college football gearing up to start in just a matter of days, you may feel inspired to find innovative ways to show your school spirit at home. Short of painting the exterior of your home in your favorite team colors like Tennessee Orange and White or Florida State Garnet and Gold, there are several more tasteful ways to show your love for your college of choice. Highlight Home Restoration has come up with a handful that we believe are #1!
- Show Your Team Spirit Sunroom – A fan as devoted as you deserves a special room for football worship! A sunroom near the deck AND the kitchen provides plenty of opportunities for quick snack and grill runs. Load your sunroom up with comfy sofas, a big screen TV on the wall and pretend it’s your very own skybox every Saturday during football season. Add splashes of school color through your accessories – such as throw pillows, rugs and bric-a-brac. Incorporate a pool table or foosball table, and this room can convert easily into a game room for the rest of the family to enjoy the remainder of the year.
- Tailgate Terrace – Overlooking your very own “field of play”, you could have a deck to die for. Envision a vaulted ceiling with outdoor fan cooling you down when the game really gets heated, plus an outdoor fireplace with a big screen TV hung overhead for enjoying night games and s’mores on those cool Fall evenings. A built-in grill allows you to combine your football watching and tailgating all in one. Hang school pennants from the rafters, and keep an open galvanized tub fully stocked with your favorite icy beverages nearby. Spend halftime partaking in a friendly game of flag football in the yard.
- Head Coach Home Office – For the other 6 days of the week, you can still show your school spirit as you look forward to next Saturday’s game. Integrate chair railing and crown molding along all four walls, then paint the base and trim to match your team colors – e.g. University of Georgia fans might consider pale grey walls with black trim and red accents. Consider framing sports memorabilia stylishly in black frames, matted in school colors in order to keep your great love of college ball understated and sophisticated.
- Backfield Basement – Because your basement is not a centrally located room of the house, you can have a little bit more fun with your décor down here. Stores like Sports Moments & Memories and Stadium Stuff plus school bookstores and online resources offer a treasure trove of really cool sports memorabilia to line your walls, shelves… even floors. Transform your basement into THE ultimate sports bar/media room by adding a custom bar with granite countertops and cozy stools on one side of the room, and an enormous big screen TV with sound system and overstuffed leather sectional on the other. Be prepared to play host on most Saturdays, as word spreads that your basement is THE place to be on game day.
