What Footballers Home Improvements Would You Like In Your Home
Today`s highly paid professional footballers have lots spare time and disposable income so it is no surprise we often see them splash out on their homes in the form of ostentatious luxuries and expensive indulgencies that most of us can only dream of. We take a look at some of the dream décor and plush entertainment you may see in the houses of your favourite players and give you ideas on how emulate your idols in your own home.
Home Cinema SystemA must have for any self-respecting millionaire footballer`s home is a top of the range home cinema or home theatre complete with huge flat or curve screen tv, banging sound system and somewhere comfy to sit. Include a cheeky games console and you`ve got yourself a gaming room too! Liverpool` prodigal son Mario Balotelli and Australian record Goalscorer Tim Cahill are known to be lovers of home cinema but we would expect to find a home cinema system in any millionaire footballer`s home.

Music Room / Sound SystemMany footballers love music just like the rest of us, but their earning power allows them to buy just about anything they want so it is not unusual to see them splash out on musical treats including expensive instruments, speaker systems and sound proofing systems. It was reported that David Beckham had an entire recording studio in his former home dubbed Beckingham Palace whereas other players such as John Obi Mikel prefer to play a fancy piano, whatever their preference you are sure to see a music room in some form in most footballers pads.

Indoor Swimming PoolWhat luxury home of any kind would be complete without an indoor swimming pool to get help yourself unwind and even get a little bit of exercise? England legends Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney are both known to have indulgent swimming pools in their properties to enjoy when at home with their families.

Footballers are professional athletes after all so it is no surprise to find out that many of them to choose to fit out their homes with a hi-tech gym room in order to help them keep fit when there are not at training.
Angel Di Maria and Raheem Stirling are both known for their sizeable home gym`s, Sterling`s home gym is pictured here but there is no reason you couldn`t size it up for your own home
Games Room / Snooker RoomAnother must have for young men with plenty of disposable income is a games room, the centrepiece of which will likely be a custom pool or snooker table to both impress and entertain guests at equal measure. Phil Neville is known to have had a bespoke table made with his number printed on the felt and Steven Ireland has had a number of pool tables commissioned.
You don`t need a bespoke pool table like Stephen Ireland to entertain and impress your friends.
Walk in Wardrobe
Footballers love fashion too, and they can often be seen with a beautiful woman or wag on their arm and wags love to shop. What footballer`s home would be complete without an extravagant walk-in-wardrobe to keep their expensive fashion purchases and those of their glamorous partners such as Wayne Rooney`s Wife Coleen Rooney or Wife of England legend Steven Gerrard, Alex Curran
You may not have the room for a walk-in–wardrobe room in your home but you can still have the next best thing here.
For those well paid footballer who enjoy hosting friends and family then what could be better than a home bar? It`s a great place where they can drink and get merry without the constant media glare. A place where they don`t have to worry about being snapped by paparazzi while falling into a gutter and seeing the photos in the next day`s papers. This bar belongs to ex footballer, Ashley Ward who`s home is featured in new reality show `The Real Housewives of Cheshire` but many of the famous players such as Raheem Sterling are known to have bars at their homes.
It could cost less than you think to install a bar at your home so why not consider treating yourself to one for the new year?
When you have had a long day at training or you have run your socks off on a match day you will want to have a way to unwind and treat your aching muscles when you return home and what better way to do it than with a refined Jacuzzi bath in your own home? Lots of rich football players have luxury Jacuzzi baths at their homes including former Arsenal, Chelsea and England player Ashley Cole and Manchester United record signing Angel Di Maria who now plays for PSG.
Introduce a bit of indulgence into your life by treating yourself to a Whirlpool corner bath.
AquariumFor those who have a love of the sea and with lots of spare cash lying around an extravagant and visually impressive aquarium is a must have. Many professional and ex professional footballers have increasingly imaginative aquariums installed in their homes but none so extravagant as ex-Arsenal and Barcelona legend Thierry Henry who reportedly had an in-home aquarium built which could be seen from every floor of the property. John Terry also has an impressive aquarium in his family home.
Your home may not have the room for a huge, bespoke aquarium but that doesn`t mean you cany have a nice fish tank!
As with many people who have a large disposable income and enjoy equestrianism, many footballers own horses and have stables at their homes, whether they have a love of horse racing or show jumping, showing or dressage these young families love to keep horses, Footballing heavyweights such as Liverpool legends Robbie Fowler, Steve Mcmanaman and Michael Owen are known to be Horse lovers as well as former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and former Chelsea star Joe Cole.
If you are a horse lover but can`t afford your own stable why not make a start with some brand new stable mats?
