The building trade saw a huge rise in demand during the pandemic with more people than ever before wanting to have some home improvements done due to them being at home and having more free time on their hands which led people to want to improve parts of their houses inside and out. A very popular improvement that a lot of people wanted to get during COVID was an outdoor improvement called the man cave or a home sports room/bar as people were calling them. These home man caves have been great for many people and industries with people kitting them out with beer pumps and games such as pool tables or dartboards. One industry that saw a large increase in online traffic from people in these home sports rooms was the gambling industry with groups of friends having a few drinks which can lead to heading to an online casino. Many online casinos have been used by a lot of people from home games rooms due to them being able to stream them on to the tv so friends can have a games night on a big screen which comes across as a popular thing to do due to it reminding people of being back at the casino. Rooms at the bottom of the garden or extensions on the outside of the house for these home games rooms have become increasingly popular amongst a lot of people wanting to get home improvements done.
When COVID started it caused the closure of all shops and pubs across the country which led to a lot of people looking to build their home pubs and entertainment rooms where they could relax and have fun. The building trade still has a large backlog of people waiting to have an outside entertainment room built with some building firms having to turn down work due to them being so busy already. Even with the pubs back open groups of friends and family members are going around each other’s houses to enjoy the rooms that some of their friends have outside their houses. There are a few other outdoor improvements that people are getting done but none are as popular as the home games room as some call it. The popular thing about the home games rooms is that people can add in a lot of different things to them to make it their own with some people having the space as a games room or a home pub and others are having them as a home cinema room amongst other things.
