You are building a new home. What networking will you provide between your office/computer/router and a media closet in your living space? Between your office and a living room desk? Between that desk and the media closet? Details ?

The media closet in your living space is one story below your office. The desk is in the living space near a bookcase. The bookcase is adjacent and below the office.
The desk stands free in the living space and is served with an in-floor (exposed concrete slab) power outlet. A computer at the living space desk will be connected to the internet and maybe a printer. It is 10' from the media closet.
It is not convenient to physically move from the office to the living space although it is easy for one person to talk to someone in the other space. You currently use wireless and wired networking. You use a Mac, an iPod and will play your entire music collection through the stereo in you media closet.
You do not need specific equipment recommendations right now. You need general thoughts on what aside from electricity might be hard wired, requiring a conduit under the slab.
