If your house is big and fancy enough to have an elevator (or a shaft ready for an elevator if you desire), then it's probably not your basic shotgun shack. And you, the owner, are probably someone who puts a lot of thought into your home.
Like, say, in the TV/media room.
We checked the Houston Association of Realtors website for elevatored homes, and checked out their media rooms. The 10 best:
10. We'd Like to Thank the Little People
only allows Academy Award-winning films to be shown in its TV room. We assume there's another TV room nearby with giant replicas of the Vince Lombardi and BCS trophies.
9. Rocky in a mobile home
If one is truly to enjoy the cinematic excellence ofRocky
s II-V inclusive, one should enhance the viewing experience by usinga room that has the feel
of an overstuffed double-wide. Watch out for tornados!!
8. God bless this TV
Ah, stained glass:This
is what Ned Flanders' video room would look like after he won the lottery and tithed 10 percent to his church. We also like that seat in the far back corner, where you have to sit and pretend there's not a gigantic TV screen behind you.
7. Why Does My Neck Hurt?
Geez, even the Astrodome had better sightlinesthan this
. We guess having all the seats facing away from the screen is supposed to subtly remind everyone that you only rarely, rarely watch TV, and then only PBS and Kurosawa films.
6. Books!! We Read Books!!
Not to mention thatour "big screen"
looks like something a 7th-grade teacher would pull down in the `60s to show a documentary on coal calledProgress: America's Gift
5. Sorry About The TV, We Spent All Our Cash on Paneling
's motto: We Know Not Rugs.
4. Only Three TVs?
Technically not a media room,this house
features an office of a man so, so important that a mere two TVs can't satisfy him. The computer screen on the desk is for porn.
3. We Have Seen Both Titanic AND Die Hard, Thank You Very Much
We can't decide if the wall decorationshere
represent a wish list or braggin'. Chances that the wall you can't see has posters forAnal Pleasues VII
andAmateur First-Time Fisters
? Probably not too high, actually.
2. No Aggies Allowed
We don't thinkthis room
is orange enough, to be honest.
