Over the years, geek fandom has paved the way for a multi-billion dollar industry. The combined box office sales of all the films created by Marvel Studios and the DC Universe franchises reached more than $4 billion worldwide. In addition, robotics movie franchise Terminator earned a total of $1.8 billion as of this year and is expected to increase with the release of Terminator: Dark Fate this November. Clearly, these statistics demonstrate that ‘geeks’ are willing to spend their hard-earned money to support their favorite films, video games, and TV shows. Some even choose to decorate their rooms and fill them with their cherished superheroes. If you, too, want to turn your home or bedroom into the ultimate geek’s lair, here are several ideas that you can apply in your design.
Terminator-Inspired Home Gadgets
Because of the upcoming return of T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) in the new Terminator franchise film, fans of the movie can tweak their own homes to get the feeling of reliving scenes from the sci-fi movie. Modern builders and interior designers can easily install gadgets to achieve home automation. These innovations include smart locks for homeowners desiring a keyless entry and exit to your house. You can also find smart locks that automatically grant access to visitors and friends.
Homeowners can also integrate a robotic furniture system for a futuristic yet functional design. Even the most far-fetched, geeky design is possible. You just need to discuss your plans to your home builder so they would know how to execute it. Design experts from Paradisa Homes confirm that homeowners who want to have a custom-designed property can work with their builders and designers to create any design they can think of. Then, the combined team will do everything that they can to make all those geeky and high-tech elements come to life.
Batman-Themed Home Theater System
Find out how it feels to live in Gotham City by implementing a home theater system inspired by the Caped Crusader, Batman. If you want to achieve a high-tech kind of look, you can install automation systems like Creston. If you have the space, it may be fun to create a Batcave-inspired home theater system in your basement.
For a more cinematic effect, install a secret elevator behind a grandfather clock. Once you enter the elevator, you could have a fingerprint and retina scanner integrated to gain access to your private home theater. It may also look cool to have two life-size Batsuits bookending each side of a sprawling 283-inch 4K screen. Adding plush theater seats with built-in amplifiers, transducers, and actuators will allow you to feel like you are inside the Batmobile. Additional accessories like stalactites from the ceiling could add to the cave-like feel of the room.
Aside from these home decorating ideas, you can also showcase your geekiness in your property by displaying some pop culture-inspired decorations, such as the Funko pop versions of your beloved Marvel or DC Comics characters. Just make sure that your home builder and designer know what you really want, so they can help you build your dream geeky home.
