Let the Games Begin

Guest post by Bryn Huntpalmer, editor for Modernize and Her Own Wings

They call it March Madness for a reason folks! The college basketball tournament that takes place each March/April is chaotic and can easily overrun your house if you have an avid sports fan living under your roof. Luckily there are ways to incorporate the fun of the tournament without making it the sole focus of your living space.

Utilize a Swivel TV Mount

Being able to turn the TV to one area of the room (and maybe even put it on mute!) can allow other conversations to take place in other areas. Consider rearranging your furniture to create two distinct living spaces. You can always move it back when the madness dies down.

Create a Man Cave

While you may not want a permanent man cave in your house (or maybe you do!), you can create an awesome temporary viewing space for friends during the excitement of March Madness. It doesn’t need to be fancy, we recommend moving a TV into the garage and setting up lawn chairs and a cooler for drinks of course! The room pictured here has two TV’s which would be perfect for watching multiple games at the same time.

Take it Outside

At Modernize we are obsessed with outdoor entertainment spaces and the ruckus that comes along with March Madness can certainly be better accommodated outdoors. While this may require a little more planning and probably more money, you can create a space that you will enjoy many months of the year, not just during sports season!

Hopefully these ideas have given you the inspiration necessary to take the plunge and plan a party around all of the craziness this Spring. And whether you’re an avid basketball fan or not, be sure to check out OmniMount’s #BeattheBrackets promotion for your chance to win the OC80FM mount pictured above! Let the games begin!
