If you’re an avid hunter, fisher or sportsman, you probably want a designated space in which to display the glories of your accomplishments. Designing a trophy room allows you to showcase your trophies and highlight your abilities as a sportsman. Creating a trophy room that adequately displays all of the trophies you want to highlight, however, can be exceedingly challenging. You may want to consider hiring a professional specializing in trophy room design to handle the needs of your trophy room.
At the end of the day, your trophy room should serve one purpose: to preserve your memories and help you recall some of your favorite hunting times. Your trophy room should effectively tell a story to you and any guests you may host in it. Here are just some of the ways that you can make the most of your trophy room design:
- Think of dimensions: First and foremost, you’ll need to consider the size and shape of the room you’ll be converting into a trophy room. While smaller, more intimate trophy rooms are every bit as enjoyable as larger, more grandiose trophy rooms, you need to be aware of the inherent constraints on décor that you can incorporate if you’re dealing with a smaller space.
- Make it functional: Your trophy room should always be functional. The purpose of the trophy room is to showcase your hunting skills and tell stories to yourself and your guests. It should be comfortable and enjoyable to visit. You should want to spend lots of time in your trophy room—you are, after all, making a substantial investment by designing a designated room for this purpose.
- Use the right materials: There are a number of unique supplies and materials you should incorporate into your trophy room. For instance, wood-paneled walls are almost always essential. Your trophy room should evoke feelings of the great outdoors. If your game is from more exotic locales, however, you may want to consider installing dried palm fronds or raffia grass along the walls, rather than traditional pine or cedar.
- Keep it bright: Sunlight damages taxidermy, which means that you should avoid windows and skylights in your trophy room as much as possible. If you are unable to avoid windows completely, you may want to consider putting a window film over them to protect the taxidermy from UV rays. You should, however, use artificial light to illuminate your taxidermy and allow it to shine.
