The perfect media room has evolved from a windowless, dedicated space with cutting edge technology and tiered seating to a flexible room says Carbine’s Vice President of Operations Daryl Walny. So, just in time for the kickoff of SEC football, let’s take a look at some inspiring spaces.
Media Room Evolution
Years ago, the dedicated home theater was more common and were fun to create. Today, homes are being designed to utilize every square inch of space and many areas with multiple uses,” Walny said. “This has really impacted the design of the home but the thirst for smart technology is still there.”
A fun space for gathering family and friends for movie night or the big game, the perfect media room has multiple entertaining uses.
Home Technology Is Important
As builders of the 2014 HGTV Smart Home in Nashville, the Carbine team knows first hand how to incorporate cutting edge home technology into beautiful design.
Working with dependable, smart companies like Interactive Systems and Audio House are key to creating multi-media rooms in a Carbine custom or spec home Walny says. Audio House worked with Carbine on the HGTV Smart Home in Green Hills.
“Technology changes so rapidly these days. It is important to work with a company that stays on top on new innovation and is adept at creating wireless systems. From our customers’ perspective, wireless gives them greater flexibility, including where surround sound speakers are located, and, as technology improves, costs go down,” Walny said
The Future Of Media Rooms
A media or bonus room adjacent to the kitchen space is a great idea in the evolution of media room. Instead of heading upstairs over the garage or downstairs to the basement, a main level media room space helps maintain a natural flow in living space.
“My dream media room is not a dark cave but a space on the ground level where families can interact and memories can be made. Ultimately, having it near the heart of the home, the energy of family gatherings or parties doesn’t break up when you are required to head to a different floor,” Walny said.
