The Keys to a Successful Home Theater Design

How Deliberate Planning Results in the Ultimate Viewing Experience

Now that there’s more content than ever available to watch at home, it’s no surprise home theaters are a hot commodity. Designing a home theater, though, isn’t as simple as buying the most popular 4K TV or soundbar on the market. Home theater design should be more purposeful than that, with a solution geared specifically to your viewing preferences.

Enjoy an engaging, comfortable theater with a design-first approach that starts with a one-on-one consultation and ends with a detailed walk-through of your system. Surround sound solutions, displays and even control options will vary depending on if you want to primarily watch movies, play games, or watch sports in your theater. Or what if you're going to do all of the above?

As you read this blog, you’ll see how personal preferences will affect every aspect of your theater in your Tampa, FL, home.

Audio options vary drastically from one theater to another. For example, a soundbar might be enough to get high-quality sound that doesn't intrude too much on conversations in a multipurpose space used for hosting friends for a Sunday tailgate. Suppose, instead, you want a dedicated theater to watch first-run movies instead of going to the local cinema. In that case, you want a full Dolby Atmos surround sound setup with speakers expertly laid out throughout the room.

It's also worth considering aesthetics and room dimensions when it comes to sound. Architectural speakers or soundbars are good options in smaller rooms or minimalist installations where you don't want equipment showing. Meanwhile, some spaces may require additional acoustic treatments to avoid distorted sound.



Naturally, people will gravitate to a projector-and-screen combination for their home theater design. We certainly recommend it, especially since a professional will connect all your sources to your projector–ensuring you have access to all the same things you watch on your living room TV.

However, flatscreen displays are increasing in size every day and are slowly becoming a good alternative in some theater environments. If you're watching in a space with a lot of ambient lighting, flatscreens are still preferable due to their brighter displays. They also have less lag for those that want to use the space for gaming.

You even have the option of dual installations. For example, have a flatscreen for watching sports or playing World of Warcraft and a projector screen that drops down when you want to watch a late-night movie.



Even the way you manage your theater might differ based on your preferences! Some like their viewing environments–be it a media room or theater–to stick to a traditional handheld remote they can use without looking away from the screen. Others prefer the sleek, luxurious feel of a dedicated touchpad. Either way, you’ll have the ability to not only adjust audio and video but also lighting, climate and more to create the perfect viewing experience.

Experience the home theater of your dreams with a cohesive design tailored to your needs. To get started, all you have to do is schedule an initial consultation with our team. To set one up, call us, fill out our contact form or chat with us below.
