Tips for a Smarter Media Room Design
Enhance Your Entertainment Experience
There’s no easier way to bring the family together than by re-watching a favorite movie, binging the latest Netflix show, or cheering on the Arizona Cardinals to another victory.
But it’s not just about what you watch, its about how you watch it.
Your media room design should reflect who you are – from the uniqueness of your Cave Creek property to the individual styles and tastes of your family. And it should also look and sound as good as possible.
In this blog, we’ll give you some great design tips that will have your family excited for the next movie night.
Start with Cables
Let’s face it: a media room isn’t a media room without the proper AV equipment. From a flat-panel 4K display to an immersive audio system, you’ll get the most out of your content.
But chances are, you already know that. Instead, consider the connections between your AV devices. Poor network signal, the wrong cabling, and improper acoustic design can have a huge impact on what you see and hear.
Ensure your cabling provides the proper bandwidth for sending 4K video and lossless audio signals. That may mean upgrading to HDMI 2.0, fiber-optic cabling. If that’s not possible, a wireless mesh network will offer stronger, faster signals to each of your rooms.
Acoustic Treatments and Soundproofing
Your system is designed to play loud. Whether you want to catch every detail in the movie soundtrack or listen to your favorite songs as though you’re at a live concert, you’ll likely crank up the volume.
But in a room that’s not optimized for high-volume impact, you could lose more than you gain.
Acoustic treatments help your media room sound incredible by absorbing the excess echoes, so you don’t have to worry about distortion. Soundproofing prevents sound bleed, so you can listen to louder volumes without waking the neighbors.
Both are an important part of media room design.
Ambient lighting is a killer when it comes to video displays. From washing out a projected image to creating glare on a flat-panel screen, the wrong lighting can ruin your media room.
Simple control over all fixtures in the room is an essential part of optimizing the space. When you integrate your lights, you can dim, raise, and even adjust their color temperatures for the perfect settings no matter how you plan to spend your time.
Plus, you can upgrade with motorized curtains or shades, to help stop even more ambient light filtering through the windows. By integrating controls, you can create the perfect viewing environment with the touch of a button.
