If you want the absolute best in entertainment despite being short on space at home, it’s important to plan every aspect of your small media room. Ideas for space-saving furniture, sound equipment and storage are plentiful and simple to implement in any size of space. For more help designing a small media room, here are some tips:
If you think beyond the movie theater stadium seating approach, you’ll find there is a world of options for space-saving furniture to include in a media room.
Sectional sofas provide ample cozy seating options while giving you different shape configurations to work with the size of your room.
“Zero wall clearance” recliners extend out into the room rather than back, saving you precious square footage when the seats aren’t in use. Plus, they also prevent you from needing to drag the chairs back and forth for optimal positioning.
For more eclectic and spontaneous seating options, consider floor cushions, bean bags or padded folding chairs to instantly adapt to the size of your audience.
As a dedicated environment for multiple forms of entertainment, your media room can start to feel cluttered quickly. When you combine gaming consoles, stereo equipment, speakers, DVD and Blu-ray players and desktop computers, all with their own connection and power cables, it’s easy to run out of space.
Luckily, there are plenty of simple ways to arrange and store your media equipment without getting overwhelmed by chaos. For instance, try installing floating shelves to keep components easily accessible while out of the way.
Another option is to use a single cabinet to keep your components safely tucked away when not in use. Tall, narrow cabinets are perfect for room corners and help your media room feel bigger than it is.
These are only a few ways to make the most of your small media room, but the possibilities are endless. Whether you want to create a home theater for watching movies, or an engaging atmosphere to explore virtual worlds, you can use these small media room decor ideas to accentuate and feature just about anything, regardless of your home’s space.
