Modern media centers rather than full-height cabinets to enclose the TV often simply surround the TV with a wall of floating shelves to help visually distract from the screen while adding useful storage (which often would be filled with DVDs in the past but are more often just decorative in the age of streaming).
Put speakers in the ceiling. You can have an entire sound system completely hidden from view with ceiling-integrated speakers. This is an excellent way to have high-fidelity audio and free up space in your home to get creative with your design. When it’s time to watch a film speakers integrated into the ceiling make viewers feel as though they are right in the middle of the action — perfect for a nail-biting thriller or spellbinding fantasy flick.
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.
Tuck away your TV. While a drop-down projector screen is great it doesn’t get much more impressive than an entire drop-down TV. No matter its weight or angle an experienced professional can mount a television wherever you want it. This is another option for those who want to make a seamless transition from dinner party to film night. When the after-dinner conversation reaches a natural lull you can adjourn to the living room and relax with the latest Hollywood hit or cult classic.
Hide your projector. Another way to have the technology of our dreams without compromising on style is by using a motorized projector lift. It’s even possible to activate the lift from an app on your smartphone. A projector can be concealed in the ceiling or in a tabletop. Then whenever you want to watch a film your living room or kitchen can be transformed into your own private cinema.
Designate a room. For those with the space to spare nothing beats having a separate cinema room in your own home. It’s a surefire way to make any film night you host unforgettable. Be warned though: Your guests will be so impressed you might have a hard time convincing them to leave!
