3 Unique Stylistic Solutions for Your Home Entertainment
Reduce Clutter Without Sacrificing Your Audio or Video Quality
Entertainment systems have been interior designers’ biggest nightmare for years. A carefully crafted style, be it rustic or modern, can be ruined quickly by the presence of large speakers and televisions, piles of CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays, and exposed wires. The good news is that technological innovations have made it easier than ever to get a high-performance home audio video system that camouflages perfectly with your unique style.
Consolidate Your System
The number one way a professional home audio video system strikes a balance between entertainment and style is to reduce clutter. The first step is hiding all necessary wiring behind walls, so you never have to set eyes on it or risk tripping over it. We also place all of your equipment—including receivers, Blu-ray players, and more—in a dedicated rack which is hidden away in an AV closet.
The second step is consolidating your entertainment system. Instead of having a pile of remotes on the coffee table to manage it all, you can control it from the device of your choice. Go with a remote, mobile app, or elegant touchpad. Upload your music and movies to media servers so you can remove clutter and access them easily in the future.
Hide the Speakers, Not the Sound
Whether you want to enjoy background music in the kitchen or watch a movie in your dedicated theater, speaker placement is pivotal. The focus should be on creating immersive, uniform sound, not just placing speakers where they won't be an eyesore. Luckily, there's a really simple way to resolve this issue. We can install your speakers within the walls and ceilings, so they're hidden from view; this way you don't have to sacrifice either your speaker layout or your unique interior design.
Camouflage Your Screen
Flat screen television are often the biggest challenge for interior designers. They’re much larger and obtrusive than your speakers. To have a comfortable viewing environment, they have to be right in the middle of the room. The ideal compromise is to make it so your television is only visible when you want to use it. There are a few ways to accomplish this.
Seura offers televisions that resemble mirrors when they’re turned off while Samsung’s Frame TV features artwork when it’s not in use. You can choose your art from 100s of free options, buy new ones directly from the TV or upload your favorites (which means you can use personal photos as well). Finally, you can use mounts or retractable screens to have the equipment completely disappear from view. Hide the TV or screen in a niche in the ceiling or custom cabinetry.
