Modern Media Rooms
The term modern is often used when referring to a design style with clean lines. Modern design style also has a simple color palette and oftentimes incorporates materials such as metal, steel and glass. For those who love this style, they enjoy simplicity and often embrace a "less is more" mentality. According to House Beautiful, "White, beiges, and even some shades of black are the main color palette for modern design, but it can incorporate color as an accent, so long as it leans towards earthy. Also, "Modern design favors open-concept floor plans."
Creating a media room in a home with this design style can be done. We suggest mounting the television on the wall and hiding any cords to create a clean look. Although modern design encourages natural light, it is still possible to add window treatments that are neutral and simple. After all, a true media room is only complete when you can darken the room!
When it comes to adding curtains, a homeowner with modern interior design would embrace a ceiling mount curtain track over a curtain rod. Curtain rods often have finials that are intended to draw attention and stand out while a ceiling mount curtain track, like the 32124 Low Profile Ceiling Mount Curtain Track is much less obvious. The 32124 track has a low profile. Mounting brackets are not required and this track can be mounted end to end with additional tracks if a longer length is needed. This is an aluminum curtain track with silver satin finish and is intended for lower ceilings which many modern homes have. If your home has higher ceilings, we recommend 6200 Heavy Duty I-Beam Track. This track can be ceiling or wall mounted and is available in 8 foot length plus 4 foot length or two 6 foot pieces (12 feet total). It is a silver mill finished aluminum curtain track featuring an I Beam Configuration.
These are just two tracks that would work for a project like this. We have many more to choose from and our customer service team is happy to help you make the perfect decision. You can create a media room and still maintain a modern design. It can be done!
