Here Are the Top Trends We’re Seeing in Media Rooms
Once upon a long time ago, there were three TV networks, movies were still on film and in theaters, and you could have as many channels of sound as you wanted as long as it was mono. Clearly, we’ve come a long way in entertainment since the days of a 25-inch living room TV with an antenna.
Today, we have more entertainment to watch and enjoy than we could consume in a lifetime. Thanks to ever-advancing technology, we can create an immersive entertainment experience in the comfort of any home living space. Of course, most people do have a home media room of a sort, from the perfectly functional to the wonderfully wild.
Thanks to technology, recent events, and the way people are doing more at home, the media room is evolving too. Here are three of the most interesting media room trends we’re seeing – is it time to update the one in your Cumming, GA home? Keep reading below!
Turn Any Space into Your Entertainment Oasis
Maybe you’ve downsized from the big house of the past. Your kids are out of college, and you’re looking to travel more and take care of less at home. But just because you have a smaller space doesn't mean you stopped enjoying your favorite sports, shows, and movies on a large screen or your music and audio on a smaller scale.
While you may not be able to fit a dedicated home theater in your smaller space, you still want a high-quality media experience. Well, you’re in luck! Today's audio-video solutions offer high-quality in tidy and sleek packages so that you can enjoy the pleasures of a home media room without complexity or the need for a large space.
Below, see how you can build your dream little media room in your new Woodstock, GA home.
It’s Never Been Easier to Add Immersive Audio to Your Media Space
With the vast and ever-growing array of content available to watch in your home, a media room or home theater is a must for making the most of all that entertainment. If you have neither of them, you might be asking: what’s the difference between a home theater and a media room?
As the answer to the eternal home theater versus media room question, we’ll say it doesn’t matter what you call it. The truth is that today’s audio and video entertainment technology options blur the line between the theater and media room. We’ve covered this topic at some length in these blogs, but the main difference might be that a home media room is for varied media including movies, and the home theater is for movies and other varied media. See what we mean? It’s all about what you want and how you enjoy your entertainment.
Audio technology has helped blur that line too. Some years ago, to get good surround sound required a stack of bulky electronics and a bunch of speakers. Today, sleek soundbars deliver excellent sound quality and surround effects for smaller (and not-so-small) media rooms. But if you want to go further, separate speakers and electronics deliver a sublime aural experience for movies and other content. In this blog, we'll cover three basic options for immersive surround sound in your Kennesaw, GA, media room.
From Flat-Panel to Projector, Enjoy Big Screen Entertainment
A media room is a space where you can enjoy a variety of entertainment. It can be a home theater, but we like to think of media rooms as multipurpose spaces, less formal than the dedicated theater with rows of plush seats. It is also a space likely to be used day and night, as opposed to a darkened home theater that you might not escape to by day. It may be your living or family room too.
So, what kind of screen can you use in your media room? The answer is almost anything goes, as you can go crazy with home theater-scale screens that can be hidden with clever technology. But most people want a large screen in a media room that isn’t crazy, hidden, or otherwise. With that in mind, we’d like to present 3 of today’s best options for home media rooms, ones that are versatile for all types of entertainment from sports to movies.
