When we are planning to turn it into an entertainment room, then we will need a few items from the storage shelves, large-sized LCD, sound system, DVD, sofa soft, comfortable cushions, and others.
When we are planning to turn it into a playroom for children, then we will need a few items that are definitely different with the items that we apply to other functions ranging from choosing the type of flooring that is durable, choose window treatments that are easily removable and washable at any time, storage space a wide range of toys, and so on.
