Let’s face it, gone are the days of the gigantic tube t.v. that weighs 800 pounds and takes a crew of 6 to move around. Nowadays, TVs are lighter, thinner, and smarter than they’ve ever been. While the update in technology is a welcome change, it has given us something to think about when it comes to how we design our homes and where we place our TVs.
Take a Minute to Consider Possibilities
Since we’ve got all these wonderful new high-tech televisions to binge-watch our favorite shows on, it’s important to think about what we want to accomplish in a given space and how best to use the T.V. as part of our design decisions.
For instance, is this a tv just for watching our shows on? If that’s the case maybe we just want an average flat-screen on a decorative t.v. stand in the bedroom. This gives a great place to cuddle and catch up on all the binge-worthy shows at the end of a hard day.
If, however, you’re craving something a little more functional, then investing in a smart tv with the capabilities you need is the optimal choice. Understanding the latest tv technology is also important in making the right choice for your unique situation and needs.
Decide The Best Usage For Your TV
There are several things to consider when purchasing a t.v. for use in your home. Like we talked about in the beginning, you may have specific needs you want to fulfill or you may just need a regular t.v. While you’re designing your ideal space, decide what you want to get out of your t.v. so that you know which one to buy.
A high-resolution t.v. is great for streaming movies or gaming, but you might want something that allows you to integrate web surfing into the mix as well. Many smart TVs now come with the ability to connect directly to your wi-fi and browse the web or use any of hundreds of smart t.v enabled apps.
Screen sharing is also a feature that many people like to employ. The ability to transfer an image from your phone or computer onto the television is convenient for when you don’t want to waste wi-fi data or when you don’t have another means of viewing the image on a larger surface.
The final consideration we’ll discuss is integration with other features in your home. This can be sound systems so that you get that theatre quality sound all over your home, or even voice recognition, integrating with your favorite game console, VR system, or other gadgets. If you’re planning the perfect party space, then a tv like this is a must.
These are just a few of the things to think about when designing a home space around your tv. With all the new high-tech options out there, the number of ways you can dream up to utilize them is nearly limitless. We hope these have given you some inspiration for your next home design project.
