I love going to Ikea and seeing the mini showrooms - it is a fun experience and helps me create a vision for my home. I can see this concept working for Best Buy - where a store has mini showrooms (100-200 sq ft each) that integrate a variety of products in a interactive and accessible-for-all-budgets setting.
Some ideas for the mini-showrooms and products displayed: 1. "Home Entertainment": Projector, screen, wireless HDMI setup, wireless/bluetooth audio, roku/wii - all controlled by laptop or ipad. 2. "Smart home": kitchen/bath/eating/living setup with light controllers, thermo states, multiroom speakers, smart appliances 3. "Gamer paradise": multiple systems, multiple displays, audio, etc. 4. "Home office": all-in-one, mini projector, bluetooth speaker-and-speaker phone, etc.
Currently, when I enter a Best Buy store, I have these ideas in my mind but then I'm barraged by multiple products in the same category with similar price ranges and it's not fun to read all the tiny print to try to discern the differences.
