If you aren’t sure how you’ll fit a media room into your existing space, it might be time to get creative with locations! Converting an unused or rarely-used garage can give you great space with an ideal layout for great acoustics. Be careful with this idea, however, if you intend to sell your home down the line. Another area to look at is space above the garage. Many times, these bonus rooms are a catch-all for garbage. With the right furnishings and preparations, bonus rooms make perfect media room spaces!
Another solution to media room location is to use an area like an office or living room and make it do secret double-duty as a media room. Many family rooms are equipped with comfortable furnishings already. With the addition of a slide-down projector screen and some discreet cabinetry, your media room can blend right in with usual living. You can also look into design ideas that can conceal a big-screen television into the décor.
