What Houzz contributors are saying:
Go wall to wallMake room for all your media paraphernalia by using the whole of the wall space available. This series of shelves and cupboards has enough room for the television, boxes and even speakers. The key to making a large area of storage like this look neat and attractive is to plan the size of each feature. The ground-level recesses perfectly fit the speakers, for example, and the two grey cabinets line up with the adjacent TV.
Make it 7.1 surround sound The latest in surround-sound technology requires eight separate audio channels to truly immerse viewers in the film. But it can be difficult to decide whether you should try to disguise the speakers or make them a feature of the room. Plenty of speaker manufacturers make devices that both sound good and look beautiful. Wood panelling offers a great combination of acoustics and aesthetics. Remember to check the wiring options when looking to make a purchase – no matter how good the speakers look, a tangle of cables is always a turn-off.
