Having their own theatres is the dream of most homeowners. Just think: all that space with the snacks you like, and you can pause the movie when you need a rest break! With everything from audio racks to remote control stands and speakers to consider, a home theatre represents an important investment, so it pays to plan ahead and get the basics figured out before you start shopping.
Design is Key
If your home theatre is a place where you’re planning to spend a fair bit of your leisure time, you’ll want to make sure that it’s comfortable. Go for a pared-down, “Scandi-chic” style with furniture in clean pine, glass, and chrome, or go for something more traditional with a darker wood and closed design. A smart, quality design is likely to stand the test of time.
A More Efficient Use of Space
Before you start shopping for your TV, speakers, and the related accessories, you will need to measure and work out the placement of every component. Do you have a cavernous basement or extra-large rooftop terrace? You can go all-out and pick the biggest of everything. If you’re working with a smaller space, though, work out what will fit before you set your heart on a particular product.
