Blend Your Interior Design and A/V System Seamlessly
The right devices and setup add style to your Little Rock, AR home while delivering superior audio and visual performance
It is a common myth that installing a quality will negatively impact your interior design. At first glance, this notion makes sense; large TVs and top-of-the-line speakers are often unwieldy and designed for optimal performance rather than how good they look once they’re set up in your home.
However, there are now several simple ways to enjoy quality performance from your home A/V equipment without those same devices spoiling your home’s aesthetic. Let’s take a look at how you can blend with a sense of style in your Little Rock, AR home.

Unsurprisingly, the best way to blend your A/V equipment with your home’s interior design is for your speakers to be heard but not seen. This is a simple task; all you need to do is install your speakers in your walls or ceiling.
While these types of speakers may not be visible, they still pack quite a punch, and you get several aesthetic benefits as well. Moving your speakers off the floor frees up space for additional seating, other furniture or décor, or more space for your TV. Placing your speakers to your ceilings or walls also means that the wiring for your devices is obscured rather than an eyesore.
One recent example of the growing hidden-speaker trend is Sonos’ partnership with Sonance on the Sonos Architectural by Sonance line of indoor and outdoor speakers. These speakers are made for in-wall or in-ceiling use, and each model is made to work with the Sonos Amp for even better performance and connectivity features.
USE YOUR BOOKSHELVES
For a budget-minded solution for getting your speakers out of sight, bookshelf speakers may be the way to go. They don’t require you to rip up your ceilings or walls during installation, and you still get quality sound when you’re done.
If you want to use bookshelf, one popular choice is the Sonos One smart speaker. The Sonos One comes with Amazon’s Alexa voice control system, multiple speakers can be easily linked together as part of a whole-home audio system, and Sonos’ Trueplay software reads the characteristics of the room and tunes the speaker accordingly to deliver the best possible performance.
KEEP YOUR TV HIDDEN
Another way to keep your speakers or other A/V equipment hidden is to hide everything in plain sight. One way to do this is to hide your TV behind a wall panel or inside a piece of specially designed furniture. This way your TV is out of sight until it’s time to watch, giving you a cleaner interior design.
Depending on how big you want your screen to be and what kind of audio performance you’re looking for, there are TVs available for purchase that look like a painting or other piece of art when not in use. These devices have somewhat limited utility, however, because they only work in situations where you’re not relying on external speakers for your sound.
Keeping a clean interior design for your home while also enjoying all the benefits of a high-end A/V system may seem difficult, but with the right plan and the right team behind you, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
