Roller shades match the casual décor of a family workout area
May 27 2011
Family workout areas can be as small as a corner of a family room or as elaborate as dedicating a whole room to exercise and fitness activities.
Setting up a workout area in the home requires considering the floor, space and lighting needed.
According to FurnitureAndDesignIdeas.com, the design of a workout area depends on the type of exercise routines that will be done there and how much space they require.
For instance, a basement gym will need extra padding on a concrete floor to lessen the impact on joints during aerobic exercises. "Adding a layer of rubber matting or extra padding to an area carpet is one way, or you can select products like cork flooring which acts as a natural “shock absorber," the website recommends.
If the TV is needed to complete a workout routine, homeowners need to consider whether lighting will create a glare on the screen. A mix of lights overhead and from task fixtures gives balance.
When relying on daylight in an exercise area, roller shades are a simple window treatment that matches the casual décor of a workout space. They manage light well, but can be pulled down for complete privacy.
