Media Centers and Gathering Spaces are evolving with Technology - no longer do you have to gather around the television in a central location to watch your favorite show……you can access television shows, movies, videos, etc. anywhere in your home depending upon what you have equipped your home with from cable, satellite and wireless internet…… While these advancements are pretty phenomenal this is changing how we interact with our family and even socialize with guests.
When designing these spaces it's important to take into consideration the old and new for a collective balance of technology for all to enjoy.
A central located television is still a wonderful way to enjoy your favorite shows or movies together on the weekend when you finally have time to sit down and take a break.
Provide adequate seating for the media center but also provide seating & surfaces for other tasks on laptops, tablets, etc. So all can still be in a central location and you are able to still be close to each other.
When Space is precious and every inch counts design spaces that can serve several functions for all in your home.
Entertaining, Working and Storage have all been covered with ease in this space.
Embrace technology and the convenience that it can bring but remember what is truly important and that's time with family and friends!
