Default Accessing my PC in Any Room of the House?

I have a desktop computer in my bedroom that I need to access and control from any room in the house; at the very least, I'd like to access it in the living room (separated by about 4 feet of drywall). Besides running an HDMI cord through the wall from my desktop to my TV, what other options exist? What sort of wireless mouse/keyboard options exist, too, to access this content?

If you have a laptop or a tablet, you can remote into it.

Remote Desktop is built into Windows; TeamViewer works with every OS out there (can control a PC from an Android or Apple tablet as well). Both can work over LAN or internet (need to forward the appropriate ports if wanting to control it over the internet when you're not at your house).
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
