BUILDING A MEDIA ROOM AROUND A TELEVISION SET
by Jessica Ackerman
Often, the television set is the largest item in a media room, so it is only natural to build your media room around it.
Media rooms provide the perfect setting for enjoying movies together, or for playing video games and entertaining friends and relatives.
Dealing with Wiring
With any television set comes a jumble of wires, especially since it is likely that you have not only a cable or satellite box hooked up to your television, but also a DVD, VCR, video game and more, all running from one space.
Lighting the Media Room
Just like in a theater, you want to have optimal lighting for the media room to better enjoy watching television in this room.
Making the room less prone to noise from outside may be as simple as installing an acoustic fabric wall that insulates the room. This also keeps the noise from your television and home theater setup from penetrating into other areas of the home.
If you don't want to spring for soundproofing the entire home, considering soundproofing the wall that faces that part of the house that is often occupied.
Consider a surround sound system for the most realistic theater experience.
Provide enough seating so that those who regularly use the room will have a comfortable spot to sit.
You might also want to purchase some bean bag style chairs that you can bring out when you have extra guests or stock the room with some floor pillows for times that your children might entertain their friends in the room.
