This room used to be a media room (earlier photos on Flickr), complete with wall-to-wall floor to ceiling velvet black-out curtains and electric reclining seats. Basically a man cave with surround sound and room for wii fit-throwing. But with a full bathroom en suite and an enormous walk-in closet, we decided for staging purposes to convert the room to another bedroom, with an agent left to speak to the possibilities of the room’s functions. We’d rather buyers see the diversity and also see the house as a true four bedroom (which it is), than see it as a three bedroom home with an office, living room, dining room, game room, and media room. We will, however, be taking the enormous television with us to Florida, clearing out the focal point of the room. In place of the TV, I’m adding an armoir, but I still don’t think it’s much of a focal point. What, if anything, would you do?
Those orange wires hanging from the wall… what would you do there? They are surround sound wires that connect to the outdoor living room, allowing the outdoor living space to flood with quality sound, controlled via remote from outdoors. We can of course remove the wires, but then the new owners will lose out on the outdoor sound system. We had these wires covered with floor to ceiling curtains.
And please don’t say, “add window treatments,” because we purposefully removed them to give the room cleaner lines and tons of bright light. Again, the TV, its stand, and the floor speakers will not be in the room once the house is on the market.
