National video games day is just around the corner! September 12th is dedicated to celebrating the roles video games have in our lives, the art of constructing the games and bringing those games to life, and the skills required to successfully play the games. There’s no better way to celebrate national video games day than to set up a home media room. Although media rooms vary, here are some essentials that will turn an average T.V. room into the perfect media room. 

Relative-sized screen

It’s not always about going big or going home when it comes to the size of your screen. When designing your media room, the screen should fit comfortably in the room, at an appropriate distance from your couch. If you decide to get a large screen, you’ll want your couch far enough back, so you won’t feel like you’re straining your neck while watching the action. 

Spacious, comfortable couch with pillows and blankets

Of course, you’ll need a cushy couch to relax on, in your media room. Fluffy pillows and soft blankets will make your media room relaxing and inviting. 

Blackout shades/curtains

Blackout shades will elevate your media room. From keeping extra light out to preventing glare on your screen, blackout curtains are a nice addition to have if your media room has a window. 

Mini fridge/snack area

Even if the kitchen is a short walk from your media room, it’s still convenient to keep snacks and drinks on hand. You never know when you’re going to need a refill in the middle of an action-packed scene. 

Organized media cubicle

If you are an active gamer with multiple consoles, you know how tangled chords can get. Keeping your media alcove organized will help keep your media room tidy. 

Having a media room could make your home even more enjoyable, providing space for relaxation to experience entertainment. At Parkside Builders, we believe home is where you should be most comfortable. That’s why we take such care in crafting beautiful, quality homes throughout Middle Tennessee.
