Savvy homeowners know they have the ability to increase the value of their property above current market conditions by making improvements to their home. This means that with two similar house in the neighborhood, you can typically expect that one will go for a higher price if there have been some add-ons or major remodeling efforts.
Perhaps you’ve been eyeing a large bedroom that’s been sitting vacant for quite some time now, as one member of your family has finished college and is now living in a new home. Or, since retirement, a home office is no longer needed and is crying out for transformation through remodeling. A great project is to convert an unused room into a home entertainment area that the whole family can enjoy.
Keep in mind that you can get a lot more value out of a home entertainment room when you remodel the room with the help of the home storage professionals at Closet & Storage Concepts.
How To Design An Entertainment Unit
The key for getting maximum fun and usefulness out of your home’s new media center is to set it up so it’s easy to keep everything neat and clean. Too much clutter can interfere with what would otherwise be a relaxing evening, lounging around with friends and family, catching up on your favorite shows. Here are a few elements to incorporate to maximize your space and enjoyment.
Shelves & Open Storage
You’ll need shelving and storage for video game consoles and controllers when they are not in use (such as during homework time). You don’t want game equipment all over the media room when you invite friends over to watch a live sporting event or awards show.
Measure Your Space
“Measure twice, cut once” is a familiar adage that reminds us to double-check that items will fit in the room before going out and purchasing a new couch or selecting the largest size TV screen. Planning ahead as you develop your home entertainment room or man cave will help you get the best value for your investment because the room is well organized, leaving plenty of room for luxurious seating.
Plan For What Goes Inside
Remember to include plenty of room for CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs, as well as snacks. You’ll want to put up shelves or install cabinets to hold these items as well as to store all the media equipment that’s bringing entertainment into the room.
Set Your Budget
As you budget for items in your home entertainment remodeling project, you’ll be pleased to note how much money you can save on what you used to spend on trips to the local movie multiplex, now that you can enjoy movies and other entertainment on a giant screen from the comfort of your own home. Besides not having to pay for tickets, you avoid the high-priced snacks at theaters.
