3 Media Room Upgrades You May Not Have Thought Of
These innovative smart automation systems will work wonders for your California media room installation
There are a few basic elements that everyone needs for an impressive media room or home theater: A big TV with 4K resolution, surround sound, and some comfy chairs. But there’s more a media room than the equipment for watching your favorite movie or TV show; it is a central location in your home where your friends and family gather to enjoy each other’s company and make memories together.
With that in mind, we thought we’d highlight three spring upgrades for your Brentwood, CA, media room installation you may not have considered before. Curious about what they are? Keep reading below to find out.
HOME NETWORK TUNE-UP
When was the last time you used a DVD to watch a movie? Physical media is quickly becoming obsolete with the growth and proliferation of streaming services to enjoy your favorite content. Video streaming can create its own unique problems, especially if you’re looking to stream content in vivid 4K resolution.
One problem that can result from streaming video is the increased load on your home network. The increased bandwidth can not only cause hiccups when you’re streaming a movie, but also a general slowdown for devices across your network.
The best solution is a network upgrade from our expert staff. Our technicians will examine your cabling, router and other devices on your home network to make sure you’re getting the speeds you need for a seamless viewing experience, as well as limit slowdowns with your other devices. Never worry about a slow network again!
Because media rooms aren’t solely used as a custom home theater, you’re much more likely to encounter issues with glare from lighting through your windows. The way to achieve optimal lighting conditions in your media room, and throughout your home more broadly, is to install a lighting control system.
This way you can control every light fixture in your home, including those in your media room, seamlessly from one device. Using preset scenes, you can set the perfect mood and lighting level with one button press that activates your TV and speakers, dims the lights and lowers your motorized shades.
HIDDEN SPEAKERS AND DISPLAY
A massive TV and giant floor-standing speakers are impressive pieces of equipment with amazing capabilities, but they’re not always the most attractive things to look at. Fortunately, there are ways to hide your speakers and TV without having to compromise on performance.
High-performance speakers are very easy to hide in your media room. You can place them in your ceiling, walls or both. Doing this keeps your speakers from taking up valuable floor space for a less-cluttered aesthetic.
As far as your TV goes, you can buy a model that displays a painting or other piece of art when the TV isn’t in use. Another option is to hide it behind a wall panel or inside a piece of specially made furniture. Now your devices are part of your media room design instead of detracting from it.
It’s the season for spring cleaning, which also makes it an excellent time to give your media room an upgrade or two. To learn more about our expert media room solutions, call us today at (310) 432-2381. You can also click on the chat box in your browser or fill out our online contact sheet.
