Do you own a multi-unit residential building? Are you looking for ways to increase resident happiness and engagement? If so, you should consider converting a spare or sparsely used room into a media room. 

Media rooms provide a variety of different entertainment options for both your employees and your guests and residents. If potential residents see you have state-of-the-art facilities, they will be more interested in signing a lease with you and staying long-term. 

Here, our experts at Aufderworld will discuss some benefits of adding a media room to your multi-unit housing building or facility.

The Best Apartment Media Systems Are Personalized

Your apartment is unique, and so is the demographic of your tenants. This affects what kind of installation an audio-visual consultant might recommend. But how can you maximize the potential of your audio-visual system and use it to draw clients? 

In other words – what exactly makes a great apartment media system? Certainly, a lack of tech doesn't bode well for your future, but excessive or cumbersome AV installations can frustrate your clientele and decrease overall resident satisfaction, contributing to tenant turnover.

Swanky apartments in a young college town, for example, might benefit from extensive features to appeal to tech-savvy millennials and Gen Z. It all depends on the demographics within your specific building.

An individualistic consultation like the type provided by our team at Aufderworld is the best way to properly understand what your tenants might need or want, though it never hurts to ask yourself the following questions beforehand:

  • Have I Received Any Complaints About a Particular Aspect of my Media System? Don't just brush these off! They're usually a sign that something is seriously wrong with that system, be it a fully systematic issue or simply cumbersome controls.
  • Do Other Communities at my Price Point Have Similar Media Systems? Though individualistic assessment and service are paramount, of course, if your clients are missing out on your apartment complex, they'll be attracted to your competitors.
  • What Specific Changes Would Impress My Clients? "A better media room" is a good place to start, but that doesn't specify where your current media system is going wrong.

Entertainment for Guests & Residents

If you own a residential property, you should consider investing in a media room because of the vast capabilities it gives you. Typically, media rooms have multiple screens and projectors that allow your residents or employees to simultaneously watch shows, play games, or catch up on sports. 

Additionally, there are typically gaming options, kitchens, provided food, and much more, depending on who owns the room. With unlimited entertainment possibilities for your residents, you provide open space and a safe place for them to host events or escape the real world for a little while.

Communal Gathering Space

As a way to encourage your residents to get to know one another, as well as a way to gather interest from potential residents, you should invest in a media room to encourage a sense of community within your facility or housing unit. 

When people are looking for a new place to live, they often look for a property in a good area that promotes a positive sense of togetherness. By investing in a communal space for your residents to play video games, watch movies or popular shows, or a place to host parties, your residents can feel as though they are at home and part of something bigger, which may encourage more people to live at your property. 

A media room offers hosting opportunities, from residence-wide parties to celebrate big occasions. This technology may increase resident happiness, leading to more people extending their leases and recommending your property to friends. 

A Place to Relax

When your residents come home from work, they may be stressed or burnt out and looking for a way to relax and take their minds off their jobs. For this reason, you should invest in a media room to host various events, which can distract them when needed. 

Additionally, media rooms typically have different games and services and provide tenants a place to burn off steam or forget about their day by playing games, chilling with a movie, and hanging out with friends from other units.  

Improve Guest & Resident Happiness

A shared, open space that is welcoming to all residents allows them to make friends and builds a sense of community. Others who may be on a tight budget and want to have free entertainment will also be highly interested in your media room. 

Either way, you are creating a gathering place for individuals, groups, and entire families to enjoy themselves.

The Ideal Event Space

Whether you are considering renting out the space or want to hold events for the residents of your healthcare facility, a media room is the ideal event space for entertaining. A media room doesn't have to be only a gathering place for patients, guests, and residents but visitors who need a place to host an event.

With smart TVs, gaming technology, LED video walls, lighting, and DIRECTV services from Aufderworld, you can create a media room that entertains guests, encourages community within yours, and offers another opportunity to earn money for your facility.

Promote Local Teams With NFL Sunday Ticket

Sports are one of the best ways to unite communities, and who doesn't love high-octane football games? Media rooms are the perfect place for investing in a new A/V system that can be easily added to a DIRECTV setup for more bonding and community connection.
