Create the Ultimate Media Room

Create the Ultimate Media Room

Whether you're taking in a game or hosting an awards show party, everyone needs a comfortable living room where friends and family can bask in the glow of the big screen. Here are a few guidelines to help you create the ultimate media room:

Screen to Scale

The further away you're sitting from the television, the larger your screen should be. Quick rule of thumb: Measure the distance from the TV to your seating in inches, divide by three, and that should be your screen size.

Worry-Free Upholstery

If there's one thing we know about a media room, it's that food, drinks, and messes are part of the script. We suggest using performance fabrics on any upholstered items. Everyone (pets included) should feel comfortable and relaxed - stain-proof upholstery means you don't have to worry.

Storage to Spare

Storage to Spare

Media rooms are busy areas and a space the family will gravitate towards. Make sure there's plenty of storage, so this area stays tidy. Our Orson Sectional stores games, throw blankets, and more inside the hidden storage ottoman.

Control the Cords

Control the Cords

Media rooms are landmines for cord clutter, but getting all those wires under control will help your space feel pulled together. If your media system doesn't have built-in cord management like our Tuscan Media Bookcase, find a clever way to wrangle the cables by hiding them behind a wall or with cord covers.

Stash the Remote

Stash the Remote

We're big believers that everything needs a home - remote controls included. A pretty box or drawer is all you need.

Serve the Snacks

A coffee table is a must-have in the media room. Where else are you going to put that bowl of popcorn or chips and dip? We like a coffee table that's big enough for snacks, but not so precious you can't put your feet up.

Potential for Pretty

Potential for Pretty

In a media room, the TV is the main attraction, but that doesn't mean you can't decorate around it. We love the way our Tuscan Media Bookcase let's you display pretty things around the TV. It gives you the best of both worlds - a pretty room with a flawless view of the screen.
