Let’s face it — media rooms can quickly become a mess of tangled cords and unsightly technology despite our best intentions. Streamline your space with media storage and accessories to hide electronics and organize necessities.
Keep the screen hidden too. It’s not only the projector that can be concealed but the screen itself. With a motorized projector lift some ceiling-integrated speakers and a drop-down projector screen the transition from living room to home cinema can be as smooth as it is impressive. The space freed up while the screen isn’t in use can be used to display artwork or any other more aesthetically pleasing pieces.
It saves you money- DVD and CDs even blank ones cost money. The use of a media storage cabinet in your home or small business can help eliminate scratched broke misplaced lost or even stolen media from hitting you in the wallet. Simply keeping your media in one place helps to accomplish this goal and advanced cabinet features such as child locks or even deadbolts can help to give added protection.
While there are an infinite number of ways to arrange a media wall experts recommend dividing the unit into a base and an upper cabinet to help break up the unit’s mass and to accommodate varying depths of storage. The base can be fitted with drawers or doors to conceal electronics and accessories.
Again asymmetry can be your friend here as placing the TV off to one side in a wide bookcase or pair of cases will keep it from feeling like the visual focal point. Depending on the furniture arrangement this can also leave a TV well-positioned to be watched from a sectional sofa or favorite chair even if it’s off-center from some of the other seats.
Gallery walls are an enduring trend so why not take advantage of this style and hide your TV in plain sight among a crowd of paintings or framed photos? Use artwork with black frames and even consider mixing in some other items (such as plaques or busts) to create a full-on mixed-media installation.
