Want to Sit Courtside? Five Tips to Transform Your TV Room for Basketball Season

Man sitting on couch excitedly watching a basketball game. Basketball enthusiasts — we know what March means to you. If you fit in this category, you likely wait all year for this meaningful celebration of your favorite sport. But if you can’t make it to an in-person game, don’t sweat it! Instead, get courtside viewing right from your living room!

Treat your TV room to a Rent-A-Center renovation, and welcome in one of your most memorable seasons yet! Here are five tips that will help you transform your TV room for basketball season.

1. A Room with a View

If you’re planning the perfect living room makeover, you might as well jump for the television of your dreams. And the bigger, the better! The Samsung 4k UHD Smart TV ranges in sizes from 65″ to 85″, making it ideal for watching sports. This television practically delivers a courtside experience through its realistic PurColor technology and impressive motion rate.

2. Audio That’s On Point

Enhance your basketball-viewing experience with an epically powerful audio system. The Samsung 5.1ch Soundbar will elevate your TV room’s audio experience in ways other speakers can’t. This product offers 3D surround sound, helping you feel like you’ve got seats right on the floor.

3. Great Seats

Whether you’re redecorating your TV room or your current furniture needs an assist, we suggest you treat yourself and your guests to an affordable furniture upgrade! Rent-A-Center has tons of seating options available for renting or buying, all of which are way cozier than anything you’ll find courtside.

If you’re expecting several people, the three-piece Hoylake Sectional can fit six basketball fans comfortably — even at their rowdiest. For smaller groups, the Vanalidi Sofa Chaise is an excellent option, with room to provide the comfiest seating to a select few.

If you’re looking for furniture that’s extra lounge-worthy, the Draycoll Reclining Sofa and Loveseat can deliver throughout basketball season and beyond. This set fully reclines, allowing you and your guests to feel as calm and relaxed as possible while watching the clock. The loveseat also includes a console with storage and cupholders, perfect for storing your favorite game-day snacks and libations.

Bring the ultimate level of comfort to your TV room with Rent-A-Center furniture, and you’ll be just fine with the seats you have.

4. Get in the Game

Turn your living room into a true entertainment center by outfitting it with activities beyond the screen. Installing an impressive arcade game will level up your TV room in an instant!

Rent-A-Center’s NBA Jam Retro Arcade includes three games within one system. Outfitted with a matching padded stool, built-in 17-inch color LCD screen, light-up marquee, and other features, this game machine will quickly turn into a highlight of your space.

5. Show Your True Colors

If you’re hosting an event at your home, you may as well go all out! Ask your guests to come dressed in team colors, and maybe even face paint if they feel so inclined! There’s no shame in showing up for your team on game day. You can even set up team-themed decorations like banners, streamers, and signs.
