No matter what kind of a home you live in, having a media wall is always a requisite in the living room. It’s both a visual as well as a functional design element and needs to be designed in a way that delivers on both fronts. While it can be easy to make this wall attractive, it is quite challenging to make it storage savvy, so here are 5 tips on how you can make your media wall both elegant and optimized at the same time!
1. Stylish suspended console
Low-height consoles are an excellent way to work in both aesthetics and pragmatics in your media wall. They are extremely trendy, can be clad in any kind of material you see fit and their storage units are perfect to stow away all your media essentials and paraphernalia. You can even customize the design of the shelving to be open or closed or both depending on your aesthetic.
2. A continuation
If simple, freestanding suspended consoles don’t seem like your thing, then how about one that continues artfully as the backdrop to your LCD? This kind of a console is an excellent way to spice up your accent wall with some material diversity and interesting patterns while getting some uniquely designed storage space at the same time. You can customize such designs according to your interior design styles.
3. Going horizontal
The thing no one ever tells you about designing is that there are literally no boundaries – except the ones you set on yourself. So if you want to hook in some extra storage space in your media walls, you can simply stylishly extend your console all the way horizontally, and balance it out with some clever material application and continuation on the upper half to make the whole thing seem seamless.
4. Sheds and huts
When you design a media wall with a specific theme in mind, you can be as creative with the storage and aesthetics as you want to get. This shed-style media console is a great example of this phenomenon – it allows you to hone in on a specific style without ever compromising on any sort of storage capacity whatsoever. You can do the same with any and all kinds of styles.
5. Serious business
For everyone looking for more than an ample amount of storage space to complement their media walls, here’s a brilliant inspiration. You can simply cut down the size of the actual media wall to frame the LCD screen and use all the rest of the space to design closed cabinets and shelves around it!
