We love home entertainment. Our culture has a more stay-at-home mindset than ever before. This, of course, has its upsides and downsides. People going out less can lead to people becoming less outgoing and more unfit. But let’s face it. The outside world is expensive!
So tending to the entertainment areas of our household has become more important than ever. Thankfully, there are plenty of things you can do to keep it all fresh and up-to-date. Not only will these things make your home cooler and more entertaining. It will also help you keep in touch with popular culture. You’ll see what I mean by the end of the article. Here’s what you can do.
Music In All Rooms
One of the sad facts about the contemporary music industry is that consumers seem a lot less interested in the album. Sure, we’re buying albums. But we often just throw on a few singles from that album. To really appreciate a full-length music release, we need to sit down for about an hour and listen to it. We have to stay in one spot for that length of time. Wouldn’t it be more convenient to have music playing throughout the house? What if the speakers could sense your movement, so the music would travel throughout the house with you?
You could argue that an iPod and some headphones would do the trick. But wandering around with a headphone wire dangling from you can get annoying. Mine always gets caught on door handles, yanking the headphones away! It’s also always more comfortable not to have to wear them. Something like the Sonos sound system lets you listen to your music throughout the house through speakers.
Nothing screams “I’m cultured” more than some modern art. Okay, maybe a big literature collection. But a nice art piece has an extra ‘wow’ factor to it that guests love. It’s entertainment that decorates your home.
The problem with hanging art up is that people eventually stop looking at it. Soon enough, it almost becomes one with the wall. Unnoticed. Just another piece of furniture. This is why you should consider changing the art piece every now and again. This is an easy way to keep your home looking fresh and up-to-date. It also encourages you to look for new art pieces, helping you keep your finger on the pulse of the modern art world. Something like Jensen Display snap frames makes it easy to change the displayed art whenever you want.
Blu-Ray Rental Service
One of our favorite things right now is film and TV streaming services. Netflix offers a lot of choice and is extremely convenient. They’re even producing their own shows, like the brilliant Orange Is the New Black. So Netflix is an essential tool, but it shouldn’t be the only one you rely on.
The fact is that Netflix doesn’t get new films all that quickly. The choice also pales in comparison to a Blu-Ray or DVD store. And the quality, while high-definition and fantastic, can never be as good as that found on Blu-Rays. If you missed something at the cinema and want to see it as soon as possible, don’t wait for it to appear on Netflix. Consider signing up for a Blu-Ray rental service. You can get films sent to you by post; pretty much any film available on disc can be mailed to you. In fact, there’s a Netflix Blu-Ray mailing service!
