It’s officially football season, and no matter who you’re rooting for, you need somewhere to watch. Space to entertain is a big consideration when you’re searching for a new home, and it can be tough to pin down what you need. How can you tell your new media room will be a touchdown? We’ve collected a few tips on how you can ensure each game day is comfortable and fun.
Big TVs Like Big Walls
For starters, of course, you need wall space for that nice big tv. If you’re setting up a fully decked-out media room, though, you’ll need it for movies, music, and games too. You’ll want space for speakers, consoles, and media players. Get the measurements of your TV, entertainment center, and any shelves you want for your media room, and bring those numbers to your next tour. You’ll get a good idea of how everything will fit in your new space.
Have a Seat (or Three)
Big watch parties or off-season gatherings call for ample seating. Consider how to pack as much seating as you can into your new media room when needed. Sectionals are a good way to get a lot of sitting area with a single piece of furniture. Of course, everyone loves a comfortable recliner of their own. And theater-style seating with one set of seats in front of another is a classic media room setup.
Choosing the Perfect Room
The room you pick in your home is an important part of the media room experience. If you want easy access to the kitchen and all the delicious game-day snacks, a room on the main floor is your best bet. Do you want a bathroom connected to the room directly, or separate but nearby? And how easy is it for guests to get to the room? Will they have to walk upstairs or take a turn in a hallway? Consider all of this during your home search.
