When you are upgrading your family entertainment room, you should be thinking about all the additions that your family would like to have included. These things might be items that are useful, they might be purely decorative, but they are things that your family wants to see in this room that is meant for everyone. Here are some ideas that can inspire you when you are redoing your entertainment center.
Make sure there is enough floor space for bean bag chairs
It can be a little bit expensive to get brand new chairs and couches for your home entertainment center, but you also want everyone to feel at home and be comfortable when you are having a movie night with all of your family friends. The solution to this? Getting bean bag chairs. It’s time to remove the coffee and end tables so that you can create more space for bean bag chairs and blanket and pillow piles for the floor.
Decorate the place accordingly
You want to make sure that the room has a certain aesthetic that is not only welcoming but calming and interesting. You want to make the place look like a room where you have fun and make memories. You also want the background to look special and unique enough so that pictures always come out fantastic. To decorate properly, add in some fake plants, a decorative ladder, some small art prints, some movie posters, and whatever else you can fit into that kind of vibe.
Get a bigger television so everyone can see
You will want to make the purchase of getting a larger television if you don’t have a decent-sized one already. While you don’t necessarily need to get something large, it would be nice to think about everyone else who is sitting in the corner or in a bean bag during movie nights. You can get a simple 50″ television and everyone will be able to see the things that are happening on-screen completely fine. Anything larger? Just an added bonus for the rest of the room. In addition to this, you can get speakers to connect to your television so that the sound travels better and sounds more realistic for those intense action or nature movies.
Add in blackout curtains so you can enjoy your entertainment center when the sun is shining
To make sure that you can have whatever family entertainment event no matter the weather or time of day, blackout curtains are a must-have in your new entertainment center. You can get these almost anywhere online, but make sure that you look at the weight of the curtains before you buy them due to everyone having a different window and those windows having different bar strengths.
Fairy or LED lights to keep a little brightness
Even movie theaters have a small amount of lighting so that you can see around you even when the screen goes black. You will need to make sure that you have fairy lights or LED lights placed somewhere throughout the room. I would recommend placing them up towards the ceiling, but a lot of people like to install their stick-on LED lights close to the ground. The choice is ultimately up to you.
Add a mini fridge so everyone can always have a cold drink
Lastly, you should make room for a mini-fridge. If you are watching a movie, you likely don’t want to have to get up and leave the room to get a drink or a snack. You can stop pausing every 15 minutes by placing a mini-fridge in the corner of the room. Maybe set it up behind the couch so that it isn’t in the way but it is there for when someone needs it.
These are all suggestions as to what you can do to make your family entertainment room more enjoyable for everyone. But even if they are just suggestions, you should seriously consider a lot of them and maybe even purchase a few things on this list so your room and family light can be brighter and more entertaining.
