This space is a no-brainer for a fam­ily who loves to party. Col­lege foot­ball Satur­days, bil­liards tour­na­ments, poker nights — the op­tions are end­less. How­ever, you must take care to plan it thought­fully so it’s a space you can’t wait to use. Make a list of your fa­vorite pas­times and scru­ti­nize the square footage you’ll have to work with, so you don’t over­whelm the area. Then carve out dis­tinct ac­tiv­ity zones within those di­men­sions, keep­ing in mind that game ta­bles typ­i­cally re­quire 3 to 5 feet of space around them; a wet bar will need clear ac­cess to plumb­ing runs; and an over­sized TV will not only need a lot seat­ing to ac­com­mo­date a crowd, it will have to be at a com­fort­able dis­tance from the screen. A good rule of thumb is 2.75 inches for ev­ery di­ag­o­nal inch of screen size. Con­sider raised the­ater-style seat­ing to give ev­ery­one an un­ob­structed view.
