Are You Ready For An Integrated Home Theater System?

Oct 17, 2007
It's one thing to have home theater but how about an integrated home theater system in your house?

What do we mean by integrated? Simply how about the entire house being one complete entertainment system. It's not the stuff of dreams; it's actually possible but it's an area you'll need to talk to a professional about.

Integration means connecting your entire house into a home theater environment.From the main viewing room to the kitchen, the living room, the bedroom, the exercise room, even the patio, it doesn't matter where you are in your house, you'll have access to on screen entertainment.

How Much Will It Cost?

How much will all this cost? Well, for established homes obviously the cost is going to mean cutting out a couple of restaurant dinners every week if you are working on a budget. Yes, it could be expensive but this article is only trying to open up the possibilities to you as a home entertainment enthusiast.

If you can dream it it can be built!

For a house to be built from scratch then a full system will be a lot easier to incorporate and more importantly, less costly. Making it part of the overall design specs of the house means there's no need to chip and chisel away at established architecture just to make the thing fit.

Integration Features

The main features of an integrated system include:

- widescreen HDTV for the main theater room
- flip down tv for the kitchen so when it's not in use it won't interfere with usable counter tops
- wall mounted televisions for the bedroom and exercise room
- an an all weather tv for the patio or pergola

These are just the televisions. A full home system also includes internet capabilities from all rooms plus control features while acoustic features would be implemented to give you the best possible sound.

We've just scraped the surface but yes, it can be a reality. Some of the major appliance centers offer advice and displays and it's worth having a chat with them.

An integrated home theater system may be out of the reach of most but just so you know, they are not a pipe dream and are definitely real. Starting out with a budget you intend to spend is sensible. You then build your system step-by-step as your budget allows.

To do this, you want to make sure the initial integration is built in and can be accessed when required.
