3. Get the seating right. Great seating can make or break a media room. The key is making sure everyone has an equally good view of the television — sectionals often accomplish this while providing ample space. “Today’s electronic recliners and wedge-shaped sectionals mean every seat is the best seat in the house,” says Wiener. “Many recliners require 'zero wall clearance,' meaning they recline forward into the room, instead of back against the wall, which makes them a perfect choice in a tight space.” Wiener suggests installing floor
receptacles beneath electronic seating for wirefree walls. If your space is carpeted, cut a channel in the padding to run wires invisibly to a wall outlet. A small slit in the carpet can allow the cord to run to the chairs.
