What should I Consider When Building a Home Theater In My Home?

As we discussed last week, due to the pandemic, many of us are spending more time at home and are looking for different ways to make our homes a better place to live. The concern of going to a crowded movie theater has renewed interest in creating a Home Theater Room, possibly in the basement or bonus room. Before starting your project, even before buying the necessary equipment, the use of the room should be clearly defined. Is it going to be a space in another room, such as a Rec room, with a bigger TV and better sound for casual viewing or is it a dedicated room to watch video. This decision is critical to selecting either a large flat panel TV or a video projector system. For the casual viewing environment, with other activities taking place, a large flat panel TV is the better choice. Lighting needed for other activities that may be taking place will not impact a large flat panel. For those creating a dedicated home theater, where the lighting can be controlled, a projector screen is recommended. A large TV can never replace the movie theater “feeling’ of sitting a darkened room with a 10’-12’ video screen. For audio, a good Soundbar and woofer will work fine in a casual viewing environment. For a dedicated Home theater, at minimum a 5.1 system is recommended. For the dedicated home theaters, when selecting the furniture, don’t get locked in to the typical theater seats. Remember it’s your home theater; make it as comfortable as you want. A couple reclining chairs and a large couch may meet your needs. Please visit our website at www.wbsouth.com.
