Being a new home owner isn’t easy. It’s not just the feeling of wanting to impress your parents during your house-warming party.
It’s the daunting nature of needing to pioneer the journey to find the furniture, decor, kitchenware and even the home audio system that suits your crib the best.
You might feel like you’d need to be an interior designer, sound engineer and a plumber all in one.
But you don’t need to fret.
We’ve got at least a third of your worries down! We believe that you don’t need to be an audio expert to experience amazing sound.
So here’s a list of Sonos speakers and audio products that have been tailored to every room in your new home.
That’s right - we’re going to make it a whole lot easier for you to choose your own audio ecosystem.
#1: The Living Room
This is the dwelling place of your family television. And that calls for a soundbar!
If you’re getting a TV that’s 49 inches or less, we recommend the Beam. It’s a compact soundbar that produces crystal clear sound.
You can opt for two Sonos One SL speakers as surrounds, and add on a Sub for good measure! You now have a 5.1 sound system that’ll immerse you right into your movie world.
If your TV is bigger than 49 inches, the Arc is the way to go! It’s the premium smart soundbar for TV, films, music, gaming, and more. Featuring Dolby Atmos, it’s so much more than a sound bar. It’s a 5.0.1 sound system. And you can add on a Sub to make it a 5.1.1 sound system that’s sure to blow your mind.
And here’s a bonus: if your dining table is nearby, you’re in luck. Good music makes good food taste better - your family is going to love being immersed in their favourite tunes while having a hearty family dinner.
#2: The Bedroom and Study
Working from home, or maybe studying from home? Perhaps your ideal work environment would be a cafe. But I guess we’d have to make do with our bedrooms for now. Well, don’t be discouraged - you can totally recreate your room into an ideal cafe environment with speakers that make a whole world of a difference.
Opt for the Beam! The Sonos Beam isn’t just made for your television. Install it as your desktop setup speaker for an extra immersive sound experience.
The Sonos One is a great choice too! It’s a perfect study buddy, with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa installed in it. That means it’s gonna help you with your homework too - handsfree!
Many of us have been doubling up our bedrooms as study rooms and as our home offices too. That means, you can double up the speakers in your room for every one of your double-up audio needs! An alarm clock, nightly tunes and maybe an episode or two of a K-drama before bed - the Sonos Beam and Sonos One are definitely not limited by these.
#3: The Bathroom
We all know Becky G’s 2014 hit single - ‘Singing in the shower’. I don’t know about you, but that surely is one of my guilty pleasures.
If a shower speaker’s what you’re looking for, the Roam is a great option. It’s waterproof, drop resistant and ready to go for a dunk in the bath with you! Get ready to take your singing-in-the-shower experience to the next level.
#4: The Kitchen
Looking for a cooking companion? The Sonos One is your best bet. You’re guaranteed a rich, room-filling sound. You can even control it with your voice or the Sonos app, so you can always be updated about what the weather is like even as you’re chopping onions.
Another great option would be the Sonos Move! Portable and powerful, jam to the Move while making your morning coffee.
#5: The Balcony
The Sonos Move would be a great fit if you’re looking for an extra powerful speaker. Don’t want to leave it there, just grab and it bring it over to any other room! No fuss, no hassle.
And if you want something that’s extra portable, we’d recommend the Sonos Roam. And rain or shine, you can just leave it right there in the balcony since it’s rated IP67 - that means it’s dustproof and waterproof!
#6: The Spare Room
Turning it into a guest room?
If you want to impress your guests with a high-quality, premium speaker. Or maybe you’re just a highly amiable host who wants to provide your guests with the best experience possible. We’d recommend the Sonos Five. A powerful speaker that’ll engulf your guests in a whole new world of music.
Spicing up your home with an audio experience room instead?
We’ve got the perfect audio devices for any audiophiles out there with a stash of vinyl, CDs or even stored audio files.
If you’re looking to power an architectural sound system with in-ceiling and in-wall speakers, or if you just want to power your traditional bookshelf or floor-standing speakers, opt for the Amp.
Or maybe you want to stream with your amplified stereo equipment or receiver. You can get a Port and connect it to your traditional stereo to stream music and more.
Enjoy control with the Sonos app or Apple AirPlay 2, and easily expand your sound system to more rooms.
Perhaps what you’re looking for is a classy, powerful speaker. We assure you, Sonos Five is your best bet. It’s the high-fidelity speaker for superior sound. In fact, it was tuned by the renowned producer, Giles Martin. So you’ve got some specially engineered audio quality right there.
We do hope that these recommendations will help you in your journey as a new homeowner. We believe that these Sonos speakers are an investment that’ll last you for decades to come.
