Adding Hidden Technology to a New Hybrid Media Room: What to Know
Home Theater Systems Don’t Have to Impede Your Space’s Interior Design
When it comes to high-performance home theater experiences, we often hear one common misconception: You need a dedicated home cinema to watch your favorite films.
This simply isn’t true. At Electronics Professionals, we believe you can enjoy a high-end theater experience in any area of your Lafayette-area home – even if you don’t have a private room for a cinema. All it takes is a professional installation from our team.
But what about when you aren’t using that technology? What if your media room setup is in your home’s great room or living room? Do you really want to be staring at a lifeless screen or protruding speakers throughout the whole day?
The solution is through hidden technology. In this blog, we explore how our team can help craft versatile home theater systems that not only deliver a best-in-class experience every time you watch a movie but also blend into your living spaces during your day-to-day routine.

Conceal and Reveal Screens with Ease
When it comes to hiding your screens in your home’s living spaces, whether it’s an expansive TV or a showcase projection screen, you luckily have many options.
The first is through a TV or projection screen lift. By just pressing a button, you can lower and raise your screen for that night’s movie marathon without any hassle. When it’s not in use, keep it concealed within the ceiling, the floor, or even a cabinet.
You also can have an installed wall panel to hide your screen, such as the one pictured above. Others could feature artwork or even a mirror. Then, when you’re ready to reveal the screen, simply push a button.
While screen-concealment options certainly have interior design value for day-to-day activities, they also certainly add dramatic effect. When you have guests over for movie night, a motorized screen-concealment mechanism is sure to “wow” everyone.
Of course, not everyone has the space for a motorized TV or screen lift. Another option is to consider an expansive TV that features a built-in ambient mode. When you aren’t watching anything, your TV can masquerade as a piece of artwork or even a mirror instead of showcasing a dull, black screen.
Surround Sound Without the Visibility
Much like a screen, you also can hide speakers throughout home theater systems.
After all, wall space is valuable. And speakers protruding from your walls and ceilings can be a bit of an eyesore, especially when you aren’t using them. Additionally, there are no guarantees your kids will stay far away from them – especially if your theater setup is in a common space.
Luckily, there is an obvious solution: Simply consider adding in-ceiling and in-wall speakers to your media room setup.
Not only are they recessed within the walls and ceilings of your space so that they don’t protrude, but they also can be coated to seamlessly blend in with the surrounding wall style and color.
Best of all, audio quality remains unaffected. That way, you still can enjoy a high-performance listening experience when you watch movies and an unassuming space when you’re just hanging out with the family.
Our team at Electronics Professionals is proud to help homeowners throughout the Lafayette area achieve their home theater system dreams – whether you want one in a private cinema or a hybrid space.
