Take our advice and learn how a home music haven can be yours!
Do you want the perfect room for listening to music in your home? You know you do! Whether you’re a teenager or a stressed parent having a room purely for music is a fantastic idea. It’s a way to escape the world, blast your favourite tunes and forget about your troubles in life. For a keen player, it could also be the perfect place to practice and build up your talent with your favourite instrument. Of course, to do this, you need to have the right set-up, and that’s where I’m here to help.
Pick Some Furniture
I suggest you look for a couple of comfy chairs and maybe a sofa, but you want to keep the room as empty as possible. The less that’s in the room, the better because this will improve the acoustics. The sound from your music player, instruments or speakers will bounce off the walls beautifully, surrounding you in art. If you get this right, there’s nothing quite like it. The music embraces you, the notes carry you away and you’re far from this world in another dimension. It sounds like artistic license but trust me, if you get the acoustics right, that’s how it feels.
You should be able to buy a couple cheap, comfy, secondhand pieces of furniture online. This is a good idea if you are only working with a small budget.
Blow Yourself Away
Be loud and proud with your music tastes and make sure that you have the best speaker system imaginable. I know what you’re thinking, won’t that cost a fortune? If you want the best, you will have to shell out at least a few thousand. You might not be able to afford that rather hefty price tag, and this is completely understandable. But again, you might be able to find great systems at lower prices if you shop around online. I recently saw a great system for just a few hundred because it had been used a couple of times. That was on sale on eBay.
Retro Is Rad
Let me tell you one thing about music that most people don’t know. Vinyl sounds so much better than CDs or MP3s. I know I sound about eighty saying that but it’s true. Maybe it’s the fact that sound is raw or maybe it’s just a personal preference for the originals. I can’t say but what I can say is that you won’t know whether you agree until you try it. Have a look at turntable reviews online and pick one up. Buy your favourite album on vinyl and let it turn. Then try to tell me it’s not the best. There’s a reason these bad boys are still on sale to this day.
Don’t Forget To Sound Proof
Finally, if you love blasting your music as much as I do investing in sound proofing wouldn’t be a bad idea. This is just padding for the walls, and it’s easy to do. It’s not too expensive either but if you’re worried about messing it up, you can hire a professional service to complete the job for you.
