Walk-InCloset Upgrades Idealfor Recording Podcasts

Headset Closeup — Des Moines, IA — A Tech

In the world of podcasts, audio quality is everything. No matter what kind of microphone and recording equipment you have, podcast quality often comes down to the room you record in. Many people have discovered the benefits of a walk-in closet. A quiet closet space is an ideal podcast recording location and comes with many benefits.

As you transform your closet into a podcast recording space, learn about some upgrades you can implement into the area. The upgrades will improve podcast conditions and give you a lot of options while you record episodes.

Sound-Dampening Wall Panels

Clothing and carpeted floors absorb sound and prevent echoes when you record. Take your soundproofing a step further with the use of sound-dampening wall panels. Typically used in home theaters, you will find versatile ways to use the panels in your walk-in closet.

Add a panel on the back of the closet door. The panel will block out sounds and echoes from the room that the closet is connected to. Add panels to the ceiling of the closet for additional sound dampening. You will block other sounds and create the best atmosphere for recording. Professionals will measure and mount the panels to fit in your closet without any major issues.

Extra Outlet Installations

Podcasts can often require multiple pieces of equipment, including computers and tablets. If your podcast involves video, then you will need video recording equipment or webcams as well. Keep everything powered up by adding extra outlets to the closet.

Extra outlets prevent the need to run cords to the closet from the bedroom. You can use an easy-access outlet to attach a power strip and plug in multiple devices at a single location. Technicians can install outlets at different heights to fit your needs and to reduce the number of dangling cords.

Fold-Down Wall Desks

When you record a podcast, you may need a clear space to put equipment, podcast notes, and extra items like a cell phone. A permanent desk would take up a lot of space in a walk-in closet, especially during times when you’re not recording and you need to access clothes. A fold-down wall desk is an ideal alternative.

When not in use, the desk lies flat up against the wall and takes up minimal space. When you need to record a podcast, you flip down the table, extend a leg, and have a wide space to stay organized. Some desks include spring-loaded fold-out options that will automatically fold out with just the press of a button. It makes the process a lot easier and eliminates extra strain.

Add a fold-up chair to save even more space, and just unfold the chair when you need it. This way, you will not need to roll a chair in and out of the closet each time you record a podcast.

Light Upgrades

Walk-in closets may not have as much light as other rooms. Many closets have no windows or natural light to illuminate the space. If you include video footage with your podcast or if you need to see extra notes, then light upgrades become an essential need for the closet. Evenly spaced recessed lights provide a lot of light for the room and may include a dimmer switch.

LED floor lights will provide illumination right where you need it as you plug in your devices and get set up. A little extra light can make a huge difference, and you can have multiple lighting setups for your needs. For example, you can have lights that fill the whole closet for while you’re recording a podcast and a switch for just a single light for times when you simply need to grab clothes.

Complete all of your closet upgrades with our professional services at A Tech. We will help you transform your closet and create an optimal recording space to use for years to come.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
