The media storage is available in so many options such as wooden chest, towers with wicker baskets, truck cabinets, chiffoniers, wooden bookcases and hanging cabinets. It is entirely up to you to choose one that fits your needs. It doesn't have to be expensive; as long as you are comfortable with it and it blends well in your specific space. Whether you room has modern look, eclectic mood or an classic aesthetic, take the time to choose audio and media storage cabinets that work best with your chosen look instead of completely against it.
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.
To take a less hypermodern approach, place a TV in a full bookshelf system (rather than free-floating minimalist shelves) to create a more transitional look. Encasing the TV in custom framing helps it blend even further into the casework, so only the essential screen is visible (and not shiny brand names). Keep in mind that a frame will block the remote receiver, so you may need a device to reroute the signal from a receiver tucked on a nearby shelf.
On specialized media cabinets, each piece is designed for functionality. A grill below the TV is situated for a five-channel home-theater audio system; this is where the center speaker sits. Using a screen rather than wood allows sound to flow unobstructed.
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.
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.
