Gathering a group of family and friends and “staying in” has been kicked up a notch with the creation of high-tech Media Rooms. Whether you’re watching the latest movie in your home theater, listening to your favorite music in surround sound, or playing a friendly game of poker, your Media Room should reflect not only your electronic needs, but your style needs as well. The Amish Craftsman Team shares design pointers on creating a Media Room of your dreams!
Choose Your Location
An extraordinary media room doesn’t have to be delegated to the basement. It can be located in just about any room of your home. Step one is to map out all electronic needs (from sound and system devices to lighting) and determine the acoustics of the room. Next, grab a tape measure, some graph paper, and a pencil and create a rough sketch including measurements for furniture placement. Now is the perfect time to have a family meeting and create your wish list of media room features.
The headlining act of most media rooms is the television. Our Amish crafted Entertainment Centers are made to last from generation to generation. Unsure which type of entertainment center will best fit your room? Our Team is here to walk you through the wide array of media room options including Plasma Stands, Large Wall Units, TV Cabinets, Corner Entertainment Units, and Stereo/DVD Cabinets.
Design Tip: be sure the screen size is matched in proportion to seating distance. Need help? Use this handy resource guide.
Nothing beats spending an afternoon reading, watching TV, or playing video games in comfort. Our talented team of Amish Builders makes every seat the most comfortable seat in the house! Choose the media room furniture to fit your needs including couches, loveseats, single chairs, and recliners. A solid-milled hardwood Pub Table and chairs are a fantastic addition that won’t take up too much room and deliver a sturdy surface to enjoy beverages, popcorn, and other snacks. When arranging seating, think about your media room “zones” and how your guests can mingle with ease.
