The Distinct Advantages of a Home Media Room
A Home Theater May Be a Great Place to Watch Movies, But a Well-Designed Media Room Offers More Options
Not so long ago, home theaters were all the rage. While they are still popular and make for excellent movie viewing, today's trend is moving toward multi-purpose home media rooms. Home theaters are a bit limited in what you can do with them. While the comfortable theater-style seating gives everyone a clear view of the screen, it also makes conversation difficult. And what if you want to have folks over to play cards in your home in central or southwestern Oregon? It won’t be possible in a traditional home theater.
Read on to find out why a home media room might be a better choice for you.
The Best of Both Worlds
Home theaters are designed to do one thing: give you a movie-viewing experience in your home that rivals that found in a traditional theater. When designed and installed correctly, they can achieve this goal, but what do you and your guests do when the movie has ended?
A home media room is a multi-purpose space designed for various fun and games, all without leaving the room. You can achieve something very close to a movie theater experience, complete with surround sound and a projector in your media room. And yet, it offers you other options if you are not planning on watching a movie, or you want the fun to continue after it is over.
Keep Your Guests Entertained
What you do with your multi-use entertainment area depends entirely on you. With today’s technology and the help of an integration company like Technology Design Associates, the only limit to your room is how much space you have to devote to it.
For some, a man cave theme may be warranted. You could include a large screen, comfortable seating, and a card-playing table and wet bar. Now you and your friends can enjoy the big game and get snacks or refresh your drink without missing a single play. When not watching the game, turn up your high-end speaker system from James Loudspeaker while playing cards or shooting pool.
If you are more of a book club kind of person, you might want to include a conversation area with a coffee table and comfortable seating as well as a large screen to watch the movie made from the book you have just finished reading.
Suppose your home is the go-to house for all of the tweeners in your neighborhood. In that case, consider game-playing seating in front of the screen, an area of open floor space for the inevitable soccer or floor hockey game that breaks out, or even an easel or table for those children who want to pursue artistic fun.
The possibilities are nearly endless!
