As big TVs and sound systems become more reasonable in price, many homeowners are converting their family rooms into media rooms. One of the keys to a great media room is the perfect lighting. It takes special window coverings to give you the control over light you need in a media room. Here at Windows & More serving the Lake Ozark area, we carry a variety of window coverings for every room in your home, including your new media room!
Blind, Shade & Shutter Options for Media Rooms
Different window treatments filter light in different ways. Location and exposure of your room, as well as the effect you are trying to achieve, will determine which product and fabric selection will best achieve your goals. Many window treatment product categories offer multiple opacity selections to choose from.
Semi-sheer blinds or shades are light-filtering. They provide a light and airy ambiance. When the media room is not in use, they allow light to enter the room. If you want total darkness, you may want to consider adding drapes. Light-filtering window treatment examples include horizontal and vertical blinds and shades, solar screen shades, woven woods, Duette® honeycomb shades, Silhouette® Privacy Sheers, Luminette® Privacy Sheers and more.
Semi-Opaque blinds or shades are room darkening. They provide a softer appearance with a “halo” of light, but are effective at filtering light. Room darkening window treatment examples include horizontal and vertical blinds and shades, Duette® Honeycomb opaque shades, woven woods, roller shades, Skyline® Gliding Panels, Pirouette® Window Shadings, Luminette® Privacy Sheers and Modern Draperies, wood blinds with traditional routing, and more.
Blackout blinds, shades, and shutters block 100% of the light. Blackout window treatment examples include horizontal and vertical blinds and shades, Duette® Honeycomb blackout shades, shutters, wood blinds with de-light feature or fabric tapes, room darkening shades with liners and more.
Other Media Room Considerations
With advances in technology, you don’t need a huge room to fit the latest media components. Big projection televisions have been replaced with flat screen TVs that take up less room and can be mounted on the wall or in a cabinet. A few other considerations for your space:
- Sectional couches; ottomans and chairs make it easier to configure any room for maximum viewing pleasure.
- Surround sound and speakers are available at a variety of price points to meet any budget.
