Like real estate, home theatre design depends on where the room is located. The environment in your home must be conducive to your high-end equipment’s success. A space’s flooring, dimensions and equipment can all have an impact on the quality of the sound and images you get.
Generally, rooms are not required to be a certain size. You want a room that strikes a delicate balance between being spacious enough and cluttered enough so that the sound can be heard with clarity. If the room is too small, the sound will be muffled.
It’s more important to consider the dimensions of your room than its size. A square room will result in distorted sound and an awkward home theater design, so make sure you don’t set up your theater in one. In the first place, you need to consider more than whether your screen will fit in the room when choosing a screen size. Also, space must be left for all of the rows of seats that you want, while you can still see the screen comfortably.
Windowless rooms are ideal for your theater since they eliminate ambient light. As a last resort, if you don’t have a choice, we can install blackout shades that will minimize the amount of light entering the room. Additionally, we can provide you with smart control of those shades so that although you are sitting, you can open and close them with your universal remote control.
Typically, you won’t need acoustic wall panels to keep the sound out of your theater, but we can install them if necessary. Furniture and drapes can also be used to break up long horizontal surfaces, but avoid hanging anything with a glass frame, as this will reflect light and sound.
You should have carpeted walls in your theater. In addition to reducing noise in the room, the carpet is also more comfortable for the family. A tiered floor allows everyone in the room an excellent view of the screen, even if you’re building a theater from scratch.
You should use a room with high ceilings if you will have a screen and a projector. If the projector is mounted on a high ceiling, you will reduce the noise in the room. It will also prevent the projector from impeding on the décor of your theater.
