Designing A Home Theatre Room

Jul 16, 2008
As the size and the quality of television grows so does the size of the space needed to accommodate our Entertainment needs. A generation ago televisions where not what they are today they were tucked away in the corner or not even in the living room at all. Today, however we devote whole rooms to our home entertainment - here are some tips designing a home theatre room in your own home.

Consider choosing a large room that is rectangular in size. You may also want high ceilings to make the room feel more authentic, more like an actual movie theatre. Also, to allow for increased noise you will probably need to add some type of soundproofing device or equipment.

If you decide to place your home theatre in your basement or any other room that has low level light, you will actually be making an excellent choice. Low level light is ideal for the home theatre but even if you select a brighter room that has windows, you can place dark curtains or use room darkening shades that block out sunlight to get the proper effect.

Next thing in designing a home theatre room is the sound and space. The room should be away from bedrooms or other rooms where noise would be bothersome. If the room is near other rooms a good option would be to soundproof the room by adding insulation before you hang the sheetrock or adding soundproofing panels to the walls. The space should be large enough to fit some nice comfortable seating for you your family and friends. Remember to keep the seating at the right distant from the television for best viewing.

Naturally, you'll want to get your stereo TV and surround sound equipment but that is for another article entirely. You should do some research to determine which electronics best fit your needs and also learn how to set up the equipment.

There's more to designing a home theatre room than just the shape, size, and electronics. You'll also want to add your personal style with small details that really make the room special. Find couches or chairs that reflect your personality, or even memorabilia from your favorite movies. If you have enough room, you could even include a popcorn machine or a bar. These finishing touches will really be the aspects that you take great pride in.
