How to Enhance the Entertainment System in Your Media Room
Explore the Benefits of a Whole Home Audio Video Installation
The most versatile space in your Austin, Texas home is your media room or living room. It may vary slightly from family to family, but in most cases, it's used to watch TV, read, listen to music, and host friends. Entertainment systems need to be optimized for more than one function to get the most out of your multi-purpose room. With a professional whole home audio video installation, it's easy to consolidate your equipment and control to create the perfect environment whether you're watching the Texans score a touchdown or hosting friends for Christmas.
Hide Away Your Components in an AV Closet
As you think of the ways you want to use your media room, consider the equipment you might need: a cable box, Blu-ray player, AV receiver, turntable, etc. The more you want to do with the room, the more crowded it gets. With a whole home audio video system, you can hide all your equipment in an AV closet, leaving only your speakers and TVs in the room. This way you’re not forced to sacrifice entertainment due to limited space or style considerations.
Consolidate Control on a Dedicated Touchpad
An added benefit of placing all your entertainment under one system is simplified control. Typically, as you add features to your room, the remotes start piling up on the coffee table. Now from the same dedicated touchpad, tablet or smartphone you get access to all your music, movies, streaming services, cable, or satellite. Your system is custom-designed so the entertainment you love most is easy to find in a matter of seconds.
Invest in Hidden Technology Solutions
Another feature our clients love to have in their media room entertainment system is the ability to make components disappear when they're not using them. As we mentioned, a lot of it can be relegated to an AV closet, but what about your speakers and television? You can opt for in-ceiling and in-wall speakers that blend into your home's décor. For your TV, invest in mirror TVs that look like traditional mirrors before revealing a television inside when turned on. You can also have your TV or screen retract into the ceiling or a media cabinet.
Transform the Room Instantly With Smart Control
To get the most out of your media room, your whole home audio video should be part of a smart automation system that also controls lighting, climate, and security. By having control of all the room’s technology on an intuitive user interface, it’s simple to prepare it for your desired activity. Want to watch a movie? From the same device, you can dim the lights, turn up the temperature and turn on your television. You can even create pre-set scenes, so it's all done at the press of a button.
