Walk-InCloset Upgrades Idealfor Recording Podcasts
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.
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.
