Create Balance with a Sectional and Chaise

No media room is complete without "the sectional." Choose a deep one for the ultimate in comfort. A sectional works well because the weight of a large one balances a media center, often situated on the opposite wall.

Add Something Unexpected

Use a pendant light in your basement to add to the warmth of the space. Creating warmth in the room enhances the element of relaxation

Choose Flexible Furniture Pieces

A well-designed media room needs to have flexible furniture pieces. You never know when you're going to have a crowd visiting to catch that great new flick!

Keep your side occasional tables light and easy to move so when friends and family gather you can easily transport them around the space.

Swivel chairs, chaise loungers and recliners have come a long way and these chairs will fit with any sleek and sophisticated space.

Don't Be Afraid of Light Colours

Don't shy away from creams or off whites, which offer a light and airy feel that most basements lack.

Add Personality Pieces
