- Decide on a Space: If you are fortunate enough to have a large home with a full basement to use as a media room, that is great news for you. But many people have with a smaller space, and that can work, too. Your media room might be the family room, a spare bedroom or even an area that is part of the living room.
Choose the Look: A contemporary look can complement a large assortment of sophisticated electronics like the latest large format streaming TVs and the games that go along with it. On the other hand, you may love the cozy feeling of comfortable traditional furniture with an inviting look.

- Make it Functional: If you think home entertainment means reading a book, you will need bookcases and comfortable furniture in a quiet spot to enjoy the latest novel. On the other hand, if a large flat screen TV with all kinds of equipment for virtual reality games is your idea of heaven, make sure to incorporate furniture with enough storage space.
- Have Enough Seating: Whether you are enjoying movie night with friends or your kids are having the gang over, the media room tends to draw crowds. Make sure you have enough seating space to accommodate all the people that show up to use the room.

- Sound and Light: If you want a professional quality surround sound effect for a home theater, put in an acoustical ceiling. Get creative with indirect lighting for a dramatic visual effect.
