Irmentrud Vreni Media Storage January 21st, 2018 - 10:41:17
One of the challenging parts of keeping our room elegant is choosing a media storage that would superbly blend in our normal furnishings. These days finding a suitable media cabinet is very hard to do especially if you have little or no experience at all in fulfilling this delicate task alone. In addition this storage has to help your furniture create a soothing or wonderful atmosphere in your room.
Integrate it into your living room. Most people don’t quite have the space for a designated room for their home theater but integrating similar features into a living room can create a comparable cinematic experience. You will need to be extra careful to avoid compromising the existing style of your space though.
On specialized media cabinets each piece is designed for functionality. A grill below the TV is situated for a five-channel home-theater audio system; this is where the center speaker sits. Using a screen rather than wood allows sound to flow unobstructed.
Media walls generally look best if they echo the architecture of the home. Cabinetmaker True studies the trim throughout the house and runs matching base and crown molding across the front of the built-in. He’s also fond of incorporating fluted pilasters and arches when appropriate to break up the unit’s rectilinear lines.
It's tempting to try to repurpose a piece of vintage furniture or use a shelving unit buffet or console table as a media cabinet but there is a big difference between a standard cabinet and a media console.
Integrate your lighting. Home automation can help replicate that real cinema experience by adding those special touches such as lights that automatically dim when the film begins or LED step lighting that comes on when the film is paused for a bathroom break. Lights and film have always gone hand in hand — a smart host like a smart director should use lighting to create the perfect atmosphere for a film.
