How to cre­ate an ex­cit­ing me­dia room for your fam­ily

The Prince George Citizen - The Citizen - Real Estate Weekly - - Real Estate Weekly -

The hol­i­days can quickly blur into a ro­tat­ing door of friends and fam­ily with lots to do and places to go, re­sult­ing in very lit­tle qual­ity time with each other. How­ever, cre­at­ing a grand me­dia room in your own home might change that. It is the one home­zone that stim­u­lates ex­cite­ment in ev­ery­one in your fam­ily.

No idea where to start? The ideal me­dia room is de­signed with the best in seat­ing, screens, and snacks in mind, as fol­lows:

Watch where you sit. Few things are worse than hav­ing ev­ery­one squeeze onto one couch, fight­ing for a view of the TV. The room lay­out and seat place­ment are key to cre­at­ing a great ex­pe­ri­ence. Couches and comfy chairs should face the screen and be set up in an open, cir­cu­lar man­ner. Ev­ery­one should com­fort­ably see each other — whether you’re watch­ing TV or not. Want to make it co­zier? Find soft throws and pil­lows for ev­ery­one to curl up with.

The screen mat­ters. Since the TV is of­ten the fo­cal point – act­ing as a gam­ing hub or in-home the­atre – the view­ing qual­ity has to be out­stand­ing. OLED screens are con­sid­ered topof-the-line and will keep every­thing look­ing sharp and crisp. If you are gift­ing your­self a TV up­grade dur­ing the sales this sea­son, go for a curved screen like LG’s Curved OLED for an in­com­pa­ra­ble, at-home the­atre ex­pe­ri­ence and one that is de­signed to give ev­ery­one the best seat in the house.

Stock up on munchies and keep ‘em com­ing. Snacks don’t have to be fancy. Serve up tried- and-true favourites with spe­cial taste treats for the hol­i­days, like a bowl of clemen­tines, pop­corn, or home­made gra­nola.
