Choosing Great Home Theater Decor

Sep 10, 2008
When one thinks of a home theater, one pictures the electronics - the big screen TV, DVD player and surround sound but once you are done setting up this stuff, you are not necessarily done with your home theater. In order to give your room the right ambiance, you need to go out and purchase some great home theater decor.

Some people desire an up to date design for their home theater, while other people think a classic design looks better. Although you may believe that these items are hard to find, this isn't true and you can discover fine antiques if you know where to shop.

A few locations to find old items from the theater would be antique shops both in your town and online as well as specialty stores. Newspaper ads might also be a good place to look and you may even find an old movie theater that is being redone. Who knows, you might be able to get great theater accessories right from these old time movie houses!

There are many types of looks that you can consider when it comes to your home theater decor. From modern to vintage, choose your decor based on comfort and your own personal style. Even though you can get a pricey decor at a large furniture stores, you can also get the same style at a faction of the cost at a consignment or second hand store.

Home theaters are not just about seating, however; you will wish to instill a particular ambience, and for that, you will need great accessories. Even if you prefer modern seating, you may give a home theater some vintage appeal by use of vintage movie posters. These are found in antique and collectibles shops, and some are really quite collectible and fetch a high price. You may find some for a bargain, but if you wish to make a good investment, you may want to get one of the more desirable posters, since it will rise in value while it decorates your walls.

Lighting is an important part of any home theater. Recessed lighting in the ceiling is very convenient, but for a more old-fashioned look you can choose to install wall sconces. Authentic sconces are available at antique stores for a high cost, or you can purchase modern reproductions which are just as visually appealing but easier on the wallet.

Before shopping for home theater decor, you will need a concept of what it is that you want the theater to look like. Look through home d?cor magazines and find a room that suits your style, then decorate yours to match. Knowing what you want before you go out shopping will make it that much easier to locate those perfect items for your home theater.
