Having a digital media room means more than just a TV and recliner. There are some elements to take into consideration to ensure you provide the comfiest and most entertaining room of all.
Before you just start adding elements into your digital media room, you need to make sure that you can bring them altogether without all of your ideas clashing and looking out of place.
Below, we will go over some things to consider and think about as you visualize and design your new entertainment room.
1. Size of the Room
Think about the size of the room that you are working with. If you have a smaller area, you want to try to maximize as much space as you can and adding large items can make the space feel crowded.
On the other hand, if you have a large room, you need to make sure you choose furniture and items that are relative in size, otherwise, they will look out of place.
2. Reason for the Room
Why do you want a digital media room? Is it for you and your friends? Is it more of a man cave space? Or is it for the family?
The reason for the room will change the way it is designed. For instance, if you want more of a man cave feel, you may have sports memorabilia hanging up while a family entertainment room may contain Disney movies and characters on the walls.
3. Size of the Television
You need to consider the size of the television when designing the space. A small TV will easily be drowned out by too many decorations where a larger TV will stand out and allow everyone in the room to have a view.
4. Adequate Lighting
You need to have adequate lighting in your media room. When you watch a movie, you do not necessarily want the room to be pitch black, so you should have some accent lights either along the baseboards or throughout the room. Your accent lights should be soft and not overpower the room.
5. Get Comfy Furniture
Your multimedia room should ALWAYS have comfortable furniture. If you have furniture that is worn down or uncomfortable, you will find that you do not enjoy sitting on it and this can cause you to close the room and avoid using it.
