A Home’s Entertainment Hub: The Media Room
The entertainment spaces in our homes have transformed from family rooms with a TV to home theaters and media rooms with the latest audio-video electronics that offer an immersive cinematic experience. We've come a long way.
For some families, the dedicated home theater offers their ultimate dream in entertainment. They envision the reclining tiered movie seats, the starlit ceiling, the big screen with lifelike images, and the immersive surround sound. It’s a room designed for the latest blockbusters and offers the ability to view them in a setting that reveals the incredible images and sound as the creator intended.
Many of our clients, however, get excited about the possibilities home media rooms provide. These multi-use entertainment areas are designed for gathering with friends and family to watch the big game, play a round of Fortnite, enjoy the clan's favorite Netflix series, and watch the latest movie. Unlike a home theater that revels in hushed tones, this is the room for socializing, enjoying appetizers and drinks, and board games.
Let’s explore the makings of a media room and why more homeowners in Southlake, TX, are turning to this entertainment hub to enjoy quality time and create lasting memories.
The Hidden Entertainment
Media rooms are all about fun, including experiencing the best cinematic viewing and sound without marring your home’s design. For homeowners that want the equipment tucked away until needed, our expert AV integrators use hidden technology. Whether opting for a big screen and a 4K HDR projector or the latest large-screen OLED TV, we’ll conceal them in ceilings, floors, and behind paintings until ready for use.
We also strategically install and calibrate nearly invisible in-wall and in-ceiling speakers that deliver immersive, high-fidelity surround sound. Some clients also appreciate impressive floorstanding loudspeakers. Whether watching a movie, enjoying your treasured vinyl collection, or streaming your favorite playlist, you’ll experience sound that engulfs you.
The design possibilities are virtually limitless when it comes to your media room. Popular seating options include sectionals, chaise lounges, and gaming chairs. Some incorporate bars, small table-top seating, and recliners. You’ll also find media rooms with pool tables, arcade games, dart boards, and modern designs with backlit LED lighting and minimalist décor. Multipurpose, layered lighting makes it easy to set the mood for every activity.
One of the most important elements to include is motorized window treatments. These popular smart shades, blinds, or draperies offer effortless control and come in blackout opacity, enabling you to experience the best and brightest images on your video display.
When integrated with your home automation system, you experience effortless one-touch control. Tap the "Movie" icon on a touchscreen, and your shades lower, the lights dim, the TV or projector and screen appear, and the audio and video begin.
