Looking to design the perfect home theatre? The technology available these days is nothing short of impressive. Now, you can invest in high-tech audio and visual equipment to make a home theatre look and sound just like the real thing.
Coming up with the right design for your home theatre on the other hand, can be tricky. So, if you're looking for a little inspiration, below you'll discover how to design the perfect home theatre experience.
Ensure you invest in the right equipment
The first thing you need to do is research the different equipment available. You'll find new audio and visual tech equipment is released each year. So, always do your research to see which equipment is currently best suited for home theatre use. Read reviews and compare the different types of systems available. For example, do you need a full all-in-1 system, or would you prefer to buy individual pieces of equipment?
You should take the time to research your options as the equipment is ultimately going to decide what type of home theatre experience you enjoy.
Create the perfect lighting
One key part of designing a home theatre, is the lighting. You're going to want to make the lighting dimmable for the most realistic experience. It's also a good idea to choose a room which doesn't have much in the way of natural lighting. This is why cellars and garages tend to make good theatre rooms - because they're naturally dark so you won't get any light filtering in while you're trying to enjoy a theatre experience.
Be sure to hide cables and accessories
Whichever type of equipment you're using, you can guarantee there's going to be wires or cables to deal with. Rather than leaving them trawling across the floor, it's a good idea to keep them neatly tidied away. You can purchase cable accessories such as floor boxes, from companies such as RS. They're affordable and they remove the tripping hazard, improving the safety of the theatre room.
Overall, designing the perfect home theatre is going to take time. However, if you follow the tips above, you should find the results are well worth the additional time and effort you put into planning it. Ideally, you'll want to make sure that the room you choose is dedicated solely as a theatre room. If you try and split it up, you won't get that full theatre experience.
