A simple mistake can derail any home improvement project. A significant mistake can cost you and your budget. The best way to ensure that a home improvement project such as a home theater goes smoothly is to plan and be proactive about stopping mistakes before they are made. Avoid these three mistakes when completing a home theater design project.
Most people want as big a display as possible in their home theater. This might not be a good idea, however. A screen can be too big, depending on the height and size of your theater room. Much like sitting in the front row of a commercial theater, you will have to crane your neck to see the screen, which is uncomfortable and defeats a home theater's benefits. The first step that you should take in the home theater design process is to measure your room's dimensions and the height of your wall. To ensure that you choose a display that fits your space, it is best to consult a professional home theater designer to select the perfect display for your dream cinema.
The wrong speakers can ruin even the best of home theaters. After all, the sound is half of the movie experience. A surround sound system is a crucial component in your design, as it will fully immerse you in your favorite movies by surrounding you with a detailed soundscape. In-wall and in-ceiling speakers allow you to experience high-quality sound without sacrificing the aesthetic of your décor. Carefully place your speakers to hear the soundscapes in vivid detail.
Think of how many components go into a home theater room: the display, the speaker system, your sources, your video game consoles, the lighting, and that’s just scratching the surface. Nothing is more unattractive than a pile of remotes in the middle of the room, and juggling these remotes is inconvenient. Don’t disrupt the movie experience with a pile of remotes. Install a centralized control system such as Control4 to manage your home theater's devices on a remote or smart device of your choice. And the convenience doesn't stop in your home cinema. This control can be extended throughout your entire home so that you can have one-touch control of your lighting, motorized shades, audio-video equipment, smart thermostats, and more.
