Optimize Your Media Room for the Best Viewing Experience

3 Tips for Media Room Design You Need to Know About

We at Room Service Integrated Solutions know that adding a media room to your home is an exciting opportunity.

It’s your chance to add top-of-the-line home entertainment technology to your house – even if it’s not in a dedicated home theater environment.

But what do you need to know as you plan your media room design? Our team based in the Portland area came up with three tips you’ll need to know about as you plan your space.

Plan for Ambient Light

Even if you have the shades lowered, some level of natural light still will enter your space. But that doesn’t guarantee your on-screen entertainment devices will suffer.

In fact, you can feature devices built for high ambient-lighting situations – allowing you to enjoy your media room any time of the day.

For example, you can feature a projection screen from our partners at Screen Innovations that showcases ambient light rejecting technology. These state-of-the-art screens significantly reduce the effect that a room’s natural lighting levels might have on the brightness of your on-screen content.

We also recommend featuring a laser projector that can deliver images in a high-lumens capacity. The brighter picture your projector can produce, the more vibrant of an image you will be able to see in a high ambient-lighting environment.


Dolby Atmos Doesn’t Simply Happen

By now, you might already have heard about Dolby Atmos – the revolutionary audio format designed for an immersive home cinematic experience.

A Dolby Atmos system includes traditional surround sound speakers and a subwoofer but also in-ceiling speakers to deliver a three-dimensional sound field.

But you can’t just begin watching a movie and expect your brand-new speaker arrangement to start playing audio in Atmos format.

The first step is selecting a movie already designed for Atmos. You can check the latest Atmos releases on this page.

You also will need an audio-video receiver that can transmit Atmos to your speakers.


Integrated Control is Essential

Your media room likely will have a variety of video sources from which you can watch your favorite content.

For example, you might have a cable or satellite box, a media-streaming device, a Blu-ray player, and more. And that’s already might be in addition to your projector, your motorized shades, your smart lighting system, and more.

Our team of media room design experts can help you integrate all of your media room technologies into an integrated control system that you can manage from the convenience of an in-wall touchscreen panel, universal remote, or smartphone or tablet application.

As the Portland area’s media room design experts, we look forward to answering any questions you might have as you build your home entertainment space.
