Designing a room specifically for music in your home is a great idea for any family that has an aspiring or professional musician. A music room can be a place of relaxation or a place for entertaining. It is up to you, the designer, to decide how your music room will be used!

Include Instruments

If you have any musical instruments in your home, consolidate them in the music room. Pieces that are played on a regular basis can be left out in the open. They can be displayed on stands specific to the individual instrument or placed in cases and set to one side of the room. If instruments are old, out of tune, and no longer in use, consider displaying them on the wall. For an additional creative flare, you can turn old instruments into lamps.

Paint With Blackboard Paint

Painting one or more walls of your music room with blackboard paint will add another fun design element to the room. Blackboard paint can be purchased at any home improvement store for a few dollars more than a regular bucket of paint. Follow manufacturer's instructions for application. Use the blackboard wall to write quotes from your favourite musicians or to educate family members and guests on music theory and history - or use it to compose music!

Set Up a Listening Center

Dedicate part of your music room to an area specifically for music listening. Organise stereo equipment for entertaining guests and headphones for quiet listening alone. Music listening is proven to both excite and relax the human mind. Use this to your advantage.

Set The Mood With Color

Color speaks volumes to us on a subconscious level. Bright, bold colours like red and orange excite the mind and make our ideas flow. Pale yellows and blues calm us and have the ability to send us into a state of relaxation. Use colour in your music room to set the mood you wish to establish. Consider the genres of music most heard in your music room as a guide to colour selection.
