How Interior Designers Can Make the Most of a Client's A/V Systems
Consider a Professional Audio Video Installation to Elevate Your Interior Design Efforts
It's a common misconception that technology and interior design conflict with each other. After all, nobody wants a lifeless screen or excessive wiring to take center stage of a home entertainment space. But did you know that through a professional A/V installation, you actually can alleviate potential design issues as you build your client’s dream space?
When you work with a professional A/V integrator such as Smart Systems, your audio video installation could actually enhance the look of your clients’ homes in the Dallas area while still delivering on their multi-room audio video needs. Keep reading to see how Smart Systems can help you execute your project and provide a finished product that has clients raving.
Centralize All Unsightly Equipment
If you have negative perceptions about A/V equipment, we assume it’s because of gawky cable boxes, Blu-Ray players next to each TV, multiple remotes or other technology eyesores. We can work together and assure you that an integrated home doesn’t have to look this way.
Fortunately, Smart Systems can eliminate all the tech clutter by storing all A/V equipment within a centralized rack that we hide somewhere inconspicuous, like a closet or basement. Through an integrated home control system such as Control4, Elan, Crestron or Savant that we will install depending on you or your client’s preferences, your client can then access each cable box or Blu-ray player from any TV in the house through a single universal remote, flush wall-mounted touchscreens or even a smartphone application.
Your clients can weigh the benefits of each and make an informed decision. All of these systems add a luxurious feel and seamless look to indoor spaces without the hassle and eyesore of bulky boxes or remotes by each television.
Incorporate Hidden A/V into Your Design Projects
One common interior design complaint about audio-video systems is that the screens and speakers themselves might detract from the overall appearance of the room; especially when it’s in a common area of the house and the system isn’t in use. However, there are a variety of fixes to how you can address this issue.
Firstly, you can have the Smart Systems team install architectural speakers, ones that are built into the walls and ceilings of your client’s space and painted over to match your surrounding wall color for a genuinely invisible appearance.
For TVs, you can select ones that feature built-in ambient modes that instead of portraying a lifeless, dark screen when not in use display artwork that complements your interior design efforts. You even can use motorization methods such as automated lifts or artwork panels that conceal the screen when your clients aren’t watching shows or movies.
