Choosing the best furniture for a media room

by Lynne Hagopian, Realtor® 08/01/2022

While the projector screen or television is the main attraction, there is no denying the importance of perfect furniture for a media room. The right furniture can improve your media enjoyment tenfold by providing comfort, functionality and great style.

But where to start? Here is a quick guide to the essential furniture you should have in your media room:

Media room seating

While there are many varieties of media room furniture to choose from, stylish home theater seating is a popular choice among movie-loving homeowners. Plush reclining theater seats with built-in cup holders or snack trays bring the perks of the movie theater home.

You can arrange your home theater seating in rows, or try a semicircle for a more cozy, communal take on the traditional design. For added functionality and a comfortable, casual vibe, add a generously sized coffee table for viewers to share.

Storage & display

While not quite as exciting as home theater seating, the right storage options can make a world of difference in your media room. Take the time to measure and find the perfect fit for your space for maximum efficiency.

Floating shelves save floor space and also provide multipurpose functionality. Display decorative accents, or use the surface space for lighting, speakers and media components.

Smaller furniture can include hidden storage for small but essential items like spare USB cables, remotes and game controllers. For extra luxury and convenience, install power banks or charging ports for mobile devices to keep everyone connected without leaving their seats.

Are you ready to begin your search for the perfect media room or home theater furniture? You might find you already have what you need elsewhere at home. However, if you want to achieve a specific style or arrangement for your room, keep these tips in mind during your design process.

Lynne Hagopian, Realtor®

People say "Home is where the heart is." Well, I love being in real estate and have consistently been a multi-million dollar producer in the MetroWest real estate market working for Coldwell Banker and Hammond Residential, as a buyer's agent, a seller's agent and a home stager. Having lived and worked in this area since the 1970s, I am familiar with the surrounding communities, school systems, and other pertinent information you may wish to learn about when looking for a new home.

My initial background was a teacher of Special Education with a Masters in Counseling both of which I pursued in the MetroWest area until beginning a family. Several years later, I worked in the interior design field and began a shop-at-home decorating business, helping clients choose colors, fabrics, window treatments, and interior finishes. It felt natural for me to progress into becoming a Realtor where I could put my various backgrounds to work assisting clients, whether buying, staging, or selling their homes, as all involve some teaching, counseling, and design skills. I would be delighted to be your number one resource for buying or selling single-family homes, townhouses, condos, or multi-family houses in MetroWest MA.
