The Football Fan’s Kickoff Checklist

Homemakers' Football Season Essentials | Homemakers Furniture #football #iowa #iowastate #uni #isu #universityofnortherniowa

Are you ready for the rigors of football season?

This isn’t a post about two-a-days or wind sprints, calisthenics or route running.

We’re talking about the grueling schedule of the football fan: endless suspense and countless football games in a marathon of awesomeness that can — if one so chooses — encompass a wide swath of the already-too-short weekend.

Here are five essentials for any respectable football-watching locale.

1. TV Stand

The TV stand is the most essential of the essentials and the focal point of any football-watching party. We like the contemporary styling and multiple mounting options of Whalen’s VAS TV console.

2. Recliner

A recliner is perfect for snoozing through halftime commercial breaks. Catnapper’s Nolan cuddler recliner offers luxurious cushioning and oversized seating.

3. Home Bar

Skip the sports bar down the street and make your home the go-to hangout for you and your friends. Styles range from sleek and modern to rustic and inviting, like Sunny Designs’ Sedona bar, with oak construction, slate accents and a wealth of storage.

4. Kitchen table

A marathon of football watching just isn’t the same without a good food spread. After all, sustenance is important in any great endeavor, athletic or otherwise. Crown Mark’s Harrison counter-height table has a built-in lazy Susan for added convenience. Set up the spread in the kitchen and let your guests help themselves.

5. Sectional sofa

Comfort is king, and a sectional sofa can accommodate a crowd. England’s Monroe three-piece sectional offers timeless styling, durable sinuous spring construction and pocketed coil cushioning, ensuring incredible comfort and support that lasts far past the final whistle.
