If you're considering installing a media room or updating an existing one, one of the first steps will be to browse the various options for media room furniture and accessories. From movie-theater-like stadium seating and dramatic curtains to LED lighting for the "aisles," the options are just about infinite and can add style, comfort and personality to your media room design.

One of the first considerations for any media room design is seating. The available seating in a media room can greatly enhance—or greatly degrade—a guest's viewing experience and enjoyment. Guests are likely to be sitting still for quite some time in a media room, so seating needs to be both plentiful and comfortable. Those searching for media room seating will find a wide variety of pricing tiers and options, from standard lounge chairs to elaborate, cinema-row-like seating. At the high end, seating will often feature sturdy construction and premium fabric or leather upholstery, as well as additional features, cup holders or trays and even chairs that can automatically respond to the action on screen by vibrating or moving. But there are less feature-rich options for media room designers on a budget—standard armchairs or couches are always an option, and for smaller spaces, a selection of throw pillows and beanbag chairs can go a long way.

When your media room's seating scheme has been determined, you'll want to consider the room's accessories. There are many choices in this category as well, from extreme to understated. If you're looking to create a media room experience that suggests a traditional cinema, for example, many companies offer custom media room curtain designs, so that you can unveil your screen in style (and, for a more practical application, keep dust off it when it's not in use).

In addition to decorative flourishes like curtains, there are accessories for your media room that can enhance the viewing experience, making it more intense and entertaining for guests. Several companies offer either custom designed "rumble-enabled" seating, or devices that can be installed under guests' seats so they'll shake during moments when the sound system's subwoofer is activated (providing guests with a truly moving experience). You can also invest in high-quality 3D glasses designed specifically for media room experiences, as opposed to larger cinemas.

Finally, you may want to consider media room accessories that add to the cinema-like experience for guests, like a popcorn machine or candy station—minus the real-theater style pricing, of course.
