One of the best things about having your own house built is the liberty to transform any room into something that would cater to your interests or hobbies.
You can have a sunroom built if you crave a sense of openness and you find nature particularly relaxing. You can build a gym at home if you love working out, an art studio if you’re an artist, and so on.
For movie buffs, having a home theater may sound like a good idea; just imagine not having to go out and dress up to watch your favorite movies.
Just like any house additions for special rooms, a home theater calls for specific details for your viewing experience to be truly cinematic.
First and foremost, you have to keep in mind that you are trying to achieve a home theater standard that will make you feel as if you were watching in an actual movie theater – for example, you have to at least aim for a good quality of surround sound. Therefore, you have to invest in quality speakers and position them properly so you can totally enjoy while watching in your home theater.
Another thing to expect is the vibration and noise your home theater can produce which would definitely affect the adjacent rooms. Therefore, making your walls soundproof to avoid disturbance while watching a movie would be a wise move. Or you can have your home theater built in the basement instead.
Since you would be setting up a lot of electric accessories such as speakers or subwoofers, expect that there would be lots of cables and cords. You have to strategically place these cords in a safe and inconspicuous area neatly to make your home theater look great and to avoid any tripping accident.
Choose sturdy and cozy seats and make sure that they are positioned at an optimal distance from your screen so you can watch movies comfortably.
