Home: Holidays are no time to scrip on the TV

Few things are worse than having everyone squeeze onto one couch, fighting for a view of the TV.

A grand TV room is where guests and family can gather for casual time together during the holidays.

The holidays can quickly blur into a rotating door of friends and family with lots to do and places to go, but very little quality time with each other.

However, creating a grand media room in your own home might change that. It is the one home-zone that stimulates excitement in everyone in your family.

No idea where to start? The ideal media room is designed with the best in seating, screens, and snacks in mind, as follows.

Watch where you sit.

Few things are worse than having everyone squeeze onto one couch, fighting for a view of the TV.

The room layout and seat placement are key to creating a great experience. Couches and comfy chairs should face the screen and be set up in an open, circular manner. Everyone should comfortably see each other—whether you’re watching TV or not.

Want to make it cozier? Find soft throws and pillows for everyone to curl up with.

The screen matters.

Since the TV is often the focal point—acting as a gaming hub or in-home theatre—the viewing quality has to be outstanding.

OLED screens are considered top-of-the-line and will keep everything looking sharp and crisp.

If you are gifting yourself a TV upgrade during the sales this season, go for a curved screen like LG’s Curved OLED for an incomparable, at-home theatre experience and one that is designed to give everyone the best seat in the house.

Stock up on munchies and keep ‘em coming.

Snacks don’t have to be fancy.

Serve up tried-and-true favourites with special taste treats for the holidays, like a bowl of clementines, popcorn, or homemade granola.
