A lot goes into designing a home theater! Aside from choosing the TV and chairs you want to use, you also have to consider the more practical side of things. For instance, how can you create a great sound system without an irritating echo? How can you arrange all the seats so no one’s view is blocked?
Some of these questions you can answer for yourself, while others require expert input. Consider the layout and style of your ideal home theater. How can you give everyone the best experience possible while keeping your theater looking great? Start with these considerations.
One major appeal of a typical movie theater is its remarkable sound system. Surround sound setups immerse you in the film’s world and allow you to truly feel like you’re a part of the movie. There’s no reason to give that experience up at home! With excellent speakers placed at strategic points around the room, you can create the same effect. You can even build the speakers into the wall behind special fabric that won’t block sound. Enjoy your favorite movies with the same immersive experience they were designed for!
Would you rather go with the typical rows of seats seen in most theaters, or opt for a rounded plan where everyone surrounds the screen like a campfire? That likely depends on the size and positioning of your screen. A larger screen probably works best with escalating rows of seats so no one feels like they have to lean back to watch the movie. On the other hand, a smaller screen might call for a half-circle of chairs so everyone has a clear view of the movie. Your room size and shape also factors in–which seating style fits best? How can you best accommodate a family movie night?
Pro Tip: One advantage of designing your own home theater is that you can choose your own seats! Never be stuck in narrow, uncomfortable theater chairs again.
