Did you enjoy watching the Super Bowl from the comfort of your own home?
It was a great game, full of exciting plays, lots of emotion and plenty of anticipation. Now, imagine watching that same game with a room that is fully tech savvy, that didn’t cost you a fortune. There are so many variables to consider when designing your perfect Multi-Media room, including how technical you want the room to be, and how much you want to spend.
Here are a few tips to consider when designing a media room on a budget:
Space – This room might be the Great Room, spare bedroom or a bonus room, like what is available in the De Young Residence 350i but it is recommended to have a relaxed, open-environment, suitable for watching the BIG game or movies with the family. Using the right space will be the foundation of your Multi-Media room.
Multi-Purpose – Maybe you want the sports headquarters of your dreams, or a social space to host events; considering using multi-purpose design techniques to give you the best of both worlds. Think a room that serves as your media room and also an office.
Prioritize -Make a decision on what is the most important to you; whether it is seating, picture quality, or sound quality, rank your priorities. This will allow you to “beef up” the most important aspects of your media room, while allowing you to be more budget-friendly in other areas.
Take stock of what you already have – Instead of buying all new equipment why not rearrange some items instead? For instance, by moving the television from your bedroom to the media room you can save money; money that can be spent elsewhere.
Buy refurbished – Best Buy and other retailers sell used and like new equipment for a fraction of retail cost. Utilize these programs to your benefit.
Creating your own custom media room can be very costly, but it doesn’t have to be. Through prioritization, you can focus on the important items, and save on what is not.
