Man Utd Fanatic Turns Living Room into an Artificial Turf Football Pitch

Last week the Daily Star told the story of Daly Clarke, a 30 year-old, gas engineer from Manchester.  Lifelong MUFC fan Daly has turned his lounge into a tribute to Old Trafford with an artificial grass carpet.  He could no longer justify paying almost £1000 for a season ticket, so decided to watch games on his flat screen TV at home instead.  But it just didn’t feel the same, so he came up with the idea to turf-it.

Clarke remarked that there’s nothing quite like watching the football, with grass underfoot.  Not surprisingly, his 6yr old son loves it, but his wife isn’t so keen.

While an artificial grass football pitch in the living room isn’t for everyone, you can use turf creatively in interior décor.  In a previous post Fake Grass Interior Ideas, we detail 7 different examples of grassy-design.  These include a fun children’s bedroom, a garden-fresh conservatory, and contemporary dining room.

Do you have a spare room you don’t use?

Have you ever thought of redesigning the space and creating something fun?  Grass makes a great floor covering for a home-gym, playroom, or office.  It brings the outside in and gives you a natural canvas to plan a fun theme.

The best thing is it’s practical and can be installed on any level surface.  Spills can be wiped up, it doesn’t stain and it’s hard-wearing.  This is another great advantage for Daly, who now plays host to up to 12 of his friends on match days.
