Tips for Planning Your Home Theater
Written by: Penny Siml on Saturday, August 29, 2015
Home entertainment has become a rapidly evolving trend in custom home building, and crafting home theaters has become a popular route to travel for those
seeking luxury in the comforts of their homes. Everyone enjoys watching the latest blockbuster or sitting down to take in movies that have become their
personal favorites, and what better way to do that than kicking back in a home viewing room of your personal design?
Here are several necessary steps to bring that dream to life.
Design/Planning: Getting what you want out of your personal home theater is always the desired result, and in order to do
that, the first thing you will want to do is write down a list of specifics. Once those are complied, meeting with your builder to brainstorm and ask
whatever questions you have is a definite must. Experienced craftsmen will also be able to provide suggestions and this collaborative process is one
step closer to creating your vision.
***One current trend to consider if you are your loved ones are sports fans is having multiple screens to make your home theater a hot spot for Sunday
football viewing parties.
Construction: Once a confident design has been established, the construction of your new home theater can begin. Due to the
custom aspect of the process, this stage can span anywhere from several weeks to months depending on the size and intricacy of the design, but the
builder will keep you updated every step of the way. Once the final product begins to come together, only a few things remain before your new home
theater truly comes to life.
Final Touches: The final stage of the project will be to add any finishing touches you see necessary. One option that is
growing more popular year by year is making home theater space into a hybrid media/family room. The majority of screen manufactures produce a smart
TV option that would allow family members to update social media, fantasy football rosters, or keep up with friends across multiple formats. If escape
from the daily grind is the ultimate goal, those options can be turned off and the cinema experience turned on with the click of a button.
