Sort your seating. What good is a home cinema without cinema-quality seating? With a home control system and D-Box technology you can have your seating rumble and vibrate in time with the action up on the big screen! Another option to consider especially if the room will be used by children is soundproofing. Not only does soundproofing mean you can turn up the volume; it also ensures that the little ones’ shouts of excitement won’t be heard by anyone next door.

While it may not seem practical to place items in front of the TV to block it (after all it is meant to be seen at least some of the time) keep in mind that the TV doesn’t necessarily need to be hidden from all angles. A chair placed between you and the TV will hide it (at least partially) when people are traversing the hallways and passing by so the screen is at least hidden when you aren’t plopped down on the sofa. Note that pushing a TV into the back of a deep bookshelf will similarly minimize it from many angles making this technique doubly effective.

Side by side. This design works magic as both elements stand side by side in perfect harmony. The television and the firebox are similar in size which helps to balance out each other’s weight on the wall. The materials provide contrast while still tying into the rest of the home’s design. If concrete isn’t the right finish for your fireplace surround try a gray-colored tile to create the same effect.

An ottoman in the closet - what a great idea! This simple addition - which doesn't take up too much space in this admittedly huge walk-in - is so functional. Plus it gives the closet a dressing room feeling that gives whole new meaning to "shopping in your closet".

Cutouts in the rear of a media console do more than allow cords through. The openings also permit much-needed ventilation. Electronics get hot when in use and you'll want air to flow around them and vent outside the cabinet. This reduces the risk of fire and can lengthen the life of the components.

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.
