The media wall is a common feature in all Singaporean homes. The need to make the TV wall seem attractive while figuring out creative ways to show case all the media accessories has led to some pretty great designs. But since most homes in Singapore are quite on the smaller side, the trend of merging the media wall with some in-built cabinetry and shelving has begun to take foot. So let’s take a look at 5 things that every mega feature media wall needs!
1. An uninterrupted flow
A mega media wall is mostly a fine and detailed combination of the television front, the media cabinets, a row of display shelves and miscellaneous cabinets (both open and closed). The arrangement of all of these things needs to feature an uninterrupted flow for your mega media wall to be a true success.
2. Respecting the layout
Now that we’ve seen the ideal layout of the mega media wall, it’s time to implement it according to the flow of your home layout. Typically, such a large carpentry venture has to be articulated in an uninterrupted fashion, but it also has to complement the layout of the interior design. It can however, be carried out in an L-shaped or a single-line fashion for optimal use.
3. Ratio of cabinets
The ratio of display and closed cabinets is quite important to work out in the design of a mega media wall. The closed cabinets are there so you can keep away all that clutter out of sight, while the open ones are there to display prized possessions and décor. Usually, the closed cabinets are more than the open ones, and the allotment of both is quite asymmetric.
4. Optimal functionality
While typical media walls are usually commended for their aesthetics, it’s best not to overlook the functional aspects as well. For example, make sure that all the cabinets are enough for your media accessories and that they have enough cutouts to keep the wires out of sight. This may sound like a small detail, but it absolutely matters in the overall scheme of things.
Lastly, presentation is an important part of the grand design of a mega media wall. If it doesn’t look good, then what’s the point of having it as a feature element of your interior design? Therefore, always pay special attention to the way it all comes together in the end.
