Creating a high-performance multi-media space in your home adds value and makes family movie night even more exciting. Here are four ways to get started:
4 Steps to the Perfect Multi-media Room
1. Look at the Lighting Too much light can make it difficult to see your television. Install duo shades, which offer a blackout shade, ideal for movie watching, and a sheer or sun control shade, so you can let the light in when you want.
2. Seek the Sound
There are a lot of factors that go into finding the best acoustics, including where your room is located, how it's shaped and what the walls are made of. To optimize your multi-media room for various activities, sound-proof it for musical performances and loud family gatherings in addition to installing surround sound for movie nights.
3. Create an Atmosphere
Vintage movie posters, guitars, artwork, and old-school video game systems can all be used as design accessories to create a warm, welcoming and fun atmosphere. Plan the emotion you want when you enter the room and then take your time to find the right pieces.
4. Plan Your Space
Arrange your space so it is both stylish and functional. Mounting your TV not only looks good, but it eliminates the need for a TV stand, allowing more space for seating or other accessories. For maximum versatility, choose seating pieces that can be easily rearranged to accommodate whatever activity may be taking place.
The most important thing to keep in mind when designing any room in your home is its purpose. By considering what each room will be used for, you’ll be able to create a stylish space that is also functional. For more expert home improvement tips, check out these articles:
