Please review our mudroom and games room design
We are almost ready to do the interior framing of our games room and mudroom/powder room. We plan to have the basement concrete floor poured soon so we need to finalize plans. Our mudroom is off the garage, and our garage is at the basement level.
We are also considering a dumb waiter in the mudroom to help with bringing in the many groceries our family of 6 eat. The dumb waiter will go from the mudroom directly up to the kitchen.
In our games room, we were originally going to place the TV along the staircase wall, but have been told that the light reflection from the two south windows will cast a reflection on the plasma screen, and it will cost much more to do surround sound in this location. We struggled with where to place the furniture in the sitting area of the games room and am not sure if we have it right now or not.
By the way, the plumbing probably cannot go much farther south as the drain lines need sufficient fall, or so I understand. We do not need a full bath down here, but will rough in for a future bath just in case we ever do (in which case we would take down the wall between the storage room and powder room to add the bath).
Can you kindly look over these rooms and let me know your suggestions or comments? Thanks!
