Tips for building a media room

by Support Team .

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

If you just can’t share the T.V. with other people at home, you should consider building a media room for your private use. Here are some tips by J Design Group to make it happen:

Media Room

Plan your sound system

If possible, consider recessing speakers into your ceiling or walls. This eliminates any visible wires while providing a true ‘surround sound’ effect into the media room. Messing with the drywall to install recessed speakers isn’t always an option. If not, choose speakers in line with your media room’s style so they appear more like decorative accessories than technical equipment. These contemporary speaks have a sculptural look that fits with the room’s modern style.

Consider your media storage

Design a small closet to hold all your media components, leaving your TV screen to star by itself without competing electronics. If a separate storage closet doesn’t work in your space, transform the cabinets of a built-in into a space to house your electronics. Ensure a long life for all electronics by using doors with screens or louvers to keep hot components aired and cool.

Get the seating right

Great seating can make or break a media room. The key is making sure everyone has an equally good view of the television. Today’s electronic recliners and wedge-shaped sectionals mean every seat is the best seat in the house.

Perfect your acoustics

Consider all the hard and soft surfaces you want in your media room and how they will affect the quality of the sound. You can easily improve acoustics with a thick carpeting and soft fabric shades instead of hard blinds to help control the ‘echo. If you prefer not to cover up your beautiful hardwood floors with carpeting, consider at least outfitting your media room with an area rug to help with the acoustics.
