A Sports Sanctuary

Custom-create a media room for a sports fan, and you’ll top the front-row seat experience every time.

After enjoying a display that’s so high resolution that you’ll notice every blade of grass on the football field, and refresh rates so fast that you don’t miss a second of the action, you’ll wonder why you didn’t customize your media room sooner.

Love a certain team? If you’re creating a space to watch sports, why not tout your fandom with your furnishings, too? Deck out your furniture with throws, pillows or memorabilia to show your team spirit.

A Private Cinema

If you want to savor the year’s movies from your private cinema, we’re here to help you entertain that wish. Let’s create a private cinema to come home to every night, where you can relax inside a dark room and a large screen that makes you feel as though you’ve truly stepped away from reality.

For media rooms this focused on movies, we often look at projectors to give homeowners that larger-than-life experience. Add a snack bar, complete with a popcorn machine, soft drink fountain and wine cellar area for a full effect.

A Sonic Experience

It makes sense that some audiophiles choose a dedicated listening room, while others prefer the more multi-purpose media room venue. If you value beautiful sound above all else, we’ll make sure you get the Dolby Atmos experience with audio immersing you from every corner, including the ceiling.

How do we bring that experience to life? The only way to get a full, authentic Atmos Music experience is with at least a 5.1.2 speaker configuration, in conjunction with an A/V receiver or soundbar that is Dolby Atmos-compatible. The more surround channels your system can support, the better your Atmos Music will sound. To bring the bass sound that you need for action-packed films, add a subwoofer into the mix.

A Gamer’s Lair

Game-friendly media rooms will likely boast plenty of screens and maybe imbue a casual flair, with bean-bag chairs and posters.

TVs with a high refresh rate are of top importance to gamers, so that epic battle scenes or races look lifelike, never glitchy. If you don’t enjoy role-playing games or multi-player game environments, consider a space for a billiards room or even a golf simulator.

Diverse Diversions

Did you read about all of these rooms above and realize that you want something that feels a little less thematic? Even if you love movies, games, music or sports, perhaps you’d prefer a room that speaks to all your hobbies at once. Let us know what you’re looking for, and we’ll set you up with the screens, speakers and more to tie it all together.
