Creating Your Perfect “TECH” Space

Creating Your Perfect “TECH” Space


Remodeling dens, basements, living rooms, lady lairs, outdoor living spaces, she sheds, and man caves is very popular right now.

Having that space where you can enjoy the big game, stream movies, play video games, have the neighborhood kids over, and entertain family and friends has become a #1 priority for many.

Understanding how to integrate multiple layers of technology is important when creating that perfect TECH space.

Don’t Underestimate the Technology and Electrical needs as part of the “Big Picture”

When designing spaces that have multiple layers of technology there are some important considerations that impact your end result.  These include placement and type of audio and video; lighting and environmental controls; internet and provider connectivity; and integration devices (such as smart remotes) that make up your home media or entertainment center.

Lighting for your new space and how it will be controlled is another essential part of getting the right look and feel for a given project.  Both the lighting and component integration entail extensive understanding of technology, as well as the electrical considerations and lighting design.

An Amazing Space or a Bad College Apartment
Integrating audio and video equipment for optimum effect involves its proper placement within the room, both visually and for the best performance and effect.  The right lighting can really set a room apart and increase its functionality. Thinking through how the room will be used will determine the type, number and location of A/V components and lighting options.

When all the pieces come together in the right way, they make for amazing spaces.  When they come together in the wrong way, they lead to technology frustrations and often look like a bad college apartment.
