Build a Media Room in Your Garage

Neighborhood Garage Door Service of El Paso, TX has seen a drastic change in the use of garage space over the years. One of the most popular transformations we’ve noticed lately is entertainment areas. Here’s a guide to help you build a media room in your garage.

Plan the Media Room in Your Garage

Before you get started, it’s important to have a clear plan for this remodel or makeover. You don’t want to get halfway through your project and realize that you didn’t run the proper wires or arranged the room poorly. Here are some things to put on your planning list:

  • What are the primary components you want in the media room? TV, surround sound, projector, and screen, etc.
  • What kind of heating and cooling solutions are you going to use?
  • Where will you put each piece of furniture and equipment, exactly?

Once you’ve got all this outlined, it’s time to get to work.

Electrify

Before you put up drywall, paneling, or even paint, make sure you have all the electrical wiring done. Make sure that you follow your plan to know where you need all the outlets. Call a professional electrician to properly install all the needed wiring, outlets, breakers, etc. to keep the garage safe. You may even have the electrician run your AV cables while they’re at it.

Insulate

Garages are frequently left without insulation when they’re constructed. This won’t work very well if you intend to start using it as a media room and be in there frequently. There are a couple of ways you can go about insulating the walls in your garage.

First, you can go the cheaper route of simply installing studs, rolling out insulation, and hanging inexpensive panel boards over it all. You can also go all out and put up actual walls buy rolling out your insulation and hanging drywall.

Install Equipment

Now that you’ve completed all your wiring and your new walls are up, it’s time to install all the AV equipment. If you’re hanging a TV on the wall, be sure to use the appropriate bracket to ensure it stays up. Hook up all your speakers, DVD or Blu-ray, cable/satellite connection, and video game consoles. Organize and label your wires for easy repair work later down the road.

Furnish

Hopefully, in your planning stage, you decided on exactly what kind of comfortable furniture you’re going to use. Include a plush couch, recliners, and area rugs to give a real homey feel. With your furniture in, you’re all set to start enjoying your new space!

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
