The living room has come a long way – from the days of huddling around the TV with the family to setting up watch parties with friends and playing video games. Instead of being a mere lounge for the family, living rooms today have become full-fledged entertainment rooms: multi-purpose hangout spots when you’ve got your kids’ friends over or as a casual place to relax and laze around.

There are plenty of ways you can transform your living room into an entertainment space, whether through major renovations or simple rearrangements. Indeed, entertainment rooms are no longer limited to gigantic home theaters in billionaires’ mansions as they can now be easily set up in homes for young families or professionals.

Still, you wouldn’t want your entertainment room to lack space for when guests or friends want to come over. This is why larger homes, especially out-of-the-city options like a house and lot in Laguna, would make the perfect venue as it gives you plenty of wiggle room to live life to the fullest.

But before you make that major step, here are the best ways you can design an exciting living-slash-entertainment room your whole family can enjoy.

Choose the equipment or electronics you want to install

Any entertainment room wouldn’t be complete without a smart TV equipped for streaming and video games paired with a high-speed internet connection. Still, this is just the tip of the iceberg as the equipment for your entertainment room will of course depend on your hobbies or interests, such as online or board gaming, streaming, reading, and binge-watching. If you’re an audiophile, for instance, you may want to have state-of-the-art speakers for your TV or a vinyl player if you’re into vintage stuff.

Decorate in a relaxing way to put your family and guests at ease

Lighting and color choice are crucial if you want a relaxing entertainment room for your loved ones and guests. As an example, we recommend the use of dim lighting which mimics the feeling of being in a lounge or theater as well as neutral or cool colors to relax the eyes.

It’s better to keep your entertainment room as neatly arranged as possible too, so children and guests who tend to move around can do so safely without tripping on things.

When you’re setting up a room to suit your binge-watching needs, it’s only right that you have a soft, cozy sofa that can accommodate hours of viewing.

Mind your acoustics

For better entertainment experiences that won’t also disturb the neighbors, we recommend the use of sound-absorbing materials. These can include thicker curtains, carpets, and even acoustic paneling to improve the sound quality.

Living room storage

Have plenty of storage space to put games, books, and other things away

When the guests have left or your children have gone to bed, expect to see your entertainment room cluttered with toys, books, video game consoles, or board games. The trick is to get a shelf or two to keep all of your belongings neatly organized.
