1. Movie Posters: Hanging up some of your family’s favorite movie posters is a great way to decorate the room and even let the kids get a say! Each family member can choose their favorite movie and have their poster hung where they choose in the room. This is a great way to make the room feel specific to what your family likes while also still creating a real cinema feel.
2. Snack Table: Use a thin, long table along one of the walls to display classic movie candy (like Raisinettes, Dots, Junior Mints and Milk Duds!). Then add popcorn, chips and dip! This table makes for a wonderful way to provide treats during any movie screening, game or watch party. You can even take it one step further by placing a mini fridge under the table for cold snacks and drinks. Add the cinema look and “aroma” to your media room with a vintage popcorn machine like this one! And individual popcorn holders like these.
3. Bean Bag Chairs: This fluffy “pouf” (see tip #12) is a creative way to provide additional seating in your media room. Everyone wants be comfortable watching a movie and there is no better place for a bean bag or pouf chair than in a media room! The kids will love getting comfy on a giant fluffy pillow, which frees up more space on the couch for others. It also adds softness and warmth to your décor.
4. Final Cozy Touches: Ultimately, you want your media room to feel welcoming to every one of your friends and family members. Add to the look of the room with throw pillows and blankets for curling up and watching your family favorites.
