But the tide is beginning to turn, according to Lindsay Cuthill, a director at Savills estate agents: “When this trend began five years ago, there were all sorts of amazing media rooms with surround sound and banked seating, designed for friends to come round,” he says. “But people are realising they’re not using them like that. Friends aren’t coming round. They’re probably great if you’re 13 years old, but it seems they have limited appeal beyond that.”
