1. Smart Lighting Sets the Mood

Lighting can elevate the beauty of a room and set the mood. Consider adding a smart lighting system to your media room that allows you to change colors and brightness and customize lighting scenes with a press of a button.

When you’re listening to songs, dim the lights to warmer tones, creating a relaxing environment. However, when you’re playing games, change them to colorful hues that get you in the gaming mood. If you’re watching movies, turn the lights all the way down to create the perfect cinematic effect and prevent any reflection on the screen.  

Program settings according to each media room activity and create scenes in your smart home tablet. Then, the lights will adjust to your preferred settings with a press of a button. 

2. Invest in a 4K UHD Projector

While today’s 4K TVs can do the job well, a UHD laser projector can enhance your home entertainment. First of all, the projector recreates a cinematic feel when watching movies. But that’s not all there is to it. The crystal-clear visuals with increased brightness make gaming and sports-watching much more elevated as well. 

The high resolution and vibrant colors will make every scene you watch more lifelike. If you’re short on space, consider adding an ultra-short-throw (UST) projector. It casts a large image even when placed a few inches from the screen.

3. Motorized Shades for Complete Blackout

When you’re watching movies, a dark room ensures zero distractions and makes the entire movie-watching experience more immersive. So, to block any light entering your media room, consider adding motorized window treatments. 

Tightly woven shades with a compact weave will ensure you get a complete blackout effect. Simply press a button, and the motorized shades will cover all the windows of your media room.
