The biggest game of the year is less than a week away. Whether you host the annual Super Bowl party at your Henderson home or have regular movie nights with friends, making sure your guests have a great place to watch the show is key. Of course snacks, beverages, and comfortable seats are important, but what about the place where it all happens? That’s right–we’re talking about your entertainment center. Having the perfect setup will ensure your friends and family enjoy the game or movie the way it should be enjoyed. However, a custom entertainment center will also add enjoyment and value to your home long after the party is over. Read on to learn about designing your own personalized entertainment center.
Choose Your Focal Point
When beginning your entertainment center’s design, it can be helpful to first choose where you want the focal point to be. For many Henderson homeowners, the most common center is the television. A space built to the specific measurements of your TV will create a clean look and fit. On the other hand, if you don’t watch much TV, maybe you would rather place the focus on something else, such as your stereo or sound system. Your media equipment can be used to create a custom-fit and personalized design for your entertainment center. Additionally, if you want to be able to protect the electronics from dust or damage when not in use, you can incorporate cabinets or sliding doors to act as covers.
After you designate the focal point of your entertainment center, you should take inventory of everything you’ll want to store in the system. Knowing what items you need stored will help guide you in the rest of your design, and make sure you include the right compartments and storage elements. Go through your movies and size up your collection, then do the same with your music. However, if you’ve phased out DVDs and CDs and moved onto exclusively using Netflix and other streaming services, you likely won’t need as much storage space for your media. If this is the case, maybe you can use the available space for books, magazines, or other collections that need shelf space.
Design the Structure
Once you have an idea of what will be going in your entertainment center, you can start designing the rest of the structure. Start from the focal point and built out from there. Make sure to include enough shelving, drawers, and cabinets for the items you took inventory for.
