They were very creative in hiding their equipment in armoires and cabinets; but, the most amazing space was a beautifully designed dedicated basement workout room with the big mirrors and glass block to let in light. It was just breathtaking! I still dream of having something like that.
Sounds like a great workout space!!Nancy that's funny! I used to be in my family room and watch my reflection in the wall art too! I have my workout zen in my basement now. Carpeted, lighting both soft and bright, heating etc. I could only find my mirrors at Home Depot or Lowes. It's hard to find a plain square large mirror with NO etching, designs etc. I have them on 2 walls. 8 pieces total. As soon as they went up my arms got toned cuz I could finally see exactly what I was doing. I also see the jiggly bits...... I have coat racks to hold my bands and loops, a mini bookshelf for my DVDs, a small table for my notebooks and calendar. I love it! I hope you enjoy your new space!!!!
What a cute idea!
I think the workout room you are talking about completely walled with mirrors and the glass block window is mine. I probably shared it here. I can post photos of it again if you'd like. I LOVE my room. The only addition I've made in the last few years is a hook in the ceiling for my TRX suspension system. Let me know if you want to see the photos again!
FYI, the mirrors were installed by a professional. They are huge and as big as the wall. They had to be wheeled in on special carts and adhered to the wall securely. It was quite expensive, but we did it as part of a home remodeling project.
