amed writer Oliver Wendell Holmes once said: “Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.” Playtime or recreation is a necessity f or us all, to take our mind off the usual str esses in life, or to simply pass time – r egardless of how young or old we are. Which then leads us to having a dedicated space for recreation. Some people may prefer going out to karaoke joints, others with children may take their kids to a park or playground, others then, build their own within their homes. If your idea of a fun time is g athering friends together and showing off your singing talents, or have them sing for you, then a good sound system is what you would need. But why just stop at good sound; to make the space truly fun, aesthetics also play a role. Or, if you’re a parent, you may want to have a section for your kids as well. Perhaps you’re the sort who enjoys a quieter ambience – that can be done, too. All you need is enough space and the right ‘toys’ to fill it with. Make sure you don’t clutter the place though. Ideally the room should serve to relieve stress, and thus, have the perfect amount of space for you and guests to have fun and move around freely – without knocking int o items, or trampling over model trains or stuffed animals. Depending on the amount of space y ou can afford and the type of fun y ou are into, we have come up with a number of options of items for you to choose from – for the audiophiles who love to sing their hearts out, to those who prefer quieter thinking games, and some that encourage cheering – all of which will guarant ee that you (and your guests) have a good time in the comforts of your own home.
