Designing Your Home Theater

08 April

When your home is being custom built, you can create the home theater of your dreams. There is no need to worry about covering up existing issues, as you can sidestep these issues before they are even created. However, there are certain elements that can help you to make your home theater as amazing as possible. Don’t overlook these important considerations.
Selecting the Best Location
The best location for a home theater is an isolated area of the home that is relatively large and rectangular. You want this area to be somewhat secluded from both sound and light, so try to keep it as far away from high traffic areas as possible. Positioning the home theater on the opposite side of the home from the kitchen and children’s bedrooms is probably a good idea. If you will have a basement in the home, this may be a good place to set up the home theater, as the acoustics and lighting are agreeable.
Insulating the Room
The insulation in your home theater can make all the difference. The insulation both keeps the sound in the home theater as crisp and high quality as possible and keeps the rest of the home from having to experience the loud sounds from the movie, show, or music. Placing high quality insulation in the walls can help to provide some sound proofing for the room, but additional sound barriers should also be installed after the wiring has been completed.
Wiring the Room for Success
When you are starting from scratch, you have the advantage of being able to place the wiring for the sound system, the lighting, the cable, the television or projector, and all of the electrical exactly where you want it. This can keep the room virtually cord free while allowing you to choose exactly where each piece of your home theater system will go. You can also make sure that the wiring is exceptionally safe.
Painting and Finishing the Room
After the drywall and final sound barriers have been installed, you can continue to make your home theater as perfect as possible with some finishing touches. Flat dark paint and plush carpeting generally tend to be the best selections for a home theater. Flat dark paint doesn’t reflect the light from the screen, so you will not have a distracting glare. Plush carpet adds comfort to the room and also optimizes the acoustics.
Make the Theater Part of Your Automated Home
Automating your whole home during construction can take your home to the next level and make it easy to integrate different devices later. By automating your home theater along with the rest of your home, you can make every experience in your home theater as amazing as possible. The whole family can sit down to watch and you can start the show, turn down the lights, and even lock the front door without leaving your plush new home theater seat.
A home theater can add a little something extra to your new custom-built home. Be sure to consult professionals to automate your home theater and the rest of your beautiful new home.
