Creating a Media and Games Room

Creating a high-end media and games room is an exciting experience where you can let your imagination soar. Almost anything is possible with the right technology and set-up, so think carefully about what you want and contact an AV specialist who can help bring your dreams to life. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Choose a Room

Do you have a spare room, attic, basement or garage that could be converted into a man cave, a family movie night hideaway or a games retreat to enjoy with friends? If so, you’re in luck. With some quality soundproofing and acoustic installation, you could have a canvas for something rather special. If you don’t have a dedicated space for a high-end media and games room, that’s fine. Smart home automation specialists can create an immersive media room that doesn’t compromise the functionality of your living space – think drop down projector screens, automated lighting, window shading, hidden speaker activation and more.

Choose Your Connected Technology

With a room in mind, you can now think about smart home automation and which technologies would work best in your space. Things to think about include:

  • Sony TVs and projectors

Do you want a fixed Sony OLED TV that brings picture and sound quality together in perfect harmony or would it be more suitable to have a dropdown Sony projector screen that activates at the touch of a button when you’re ready for a movie night? This will all depend on your room and the space you’re working with.

  • Speakers

You can also opt for a wide range of invisible speakers that will provide quality surround sound, without disturbing the visual aesthetics of your space. Want something a bit more elaborate? Then Artcoustic offers speakers that can match the colour scheme of your room. Or you can decorate the speaker cabinet with artwork of your choice.

  • Lutron Lighting

As for lighting, Lutron offers a great range of options for high-end media and games rooms. Whether you want to draw attention to a pool table, shine light on a dart board, illuminate gaming consoles or have LEDs under the TV, anything is possible. With Lutron lighting, you can also create unique lighting scenes depending on your mood. Dim the lights for a movie night, opt for coloured LEDs, and set timers that will automatically turn the lights off when you’re done.


Add Control4 to your media room set-up and control multiple devices with a single remote or interface. Dim the lights, drop down the projector, close the window shades, turn the music off and more with the touch of a button. Certain scenes and setups can be created depending on the type of night you’re hosting.
