Make Yourself at Home
Among the more exotic home amenities that may become more mainstream in the coming years:
- “Extreme” home theaters, complete with theater-style seats and commercial popcorn poppers (and they wonder why theater box office figures are declining!).
- Two-story elevators.
- Soundproof “rooms within rooms” to serve as home offices, mini recreation rooms, or extra rooms in an apartment or other small abode.
- A revival of in-home sales and services, as cosmetologists, masseuses and other service providers make house calls.
- Commercial-grade wine refrigerators and beer taps.
