Are you tempted to convert a room into a home theater that you can enjoy among friends and family? Here are a few tips on how to set up a home theater room.
First, choose the size of your screen according to the depth of the screening room. The distance that separates you from the screen has to be two to three times superior to the diagonal screen size. This way, a 53’’ screen (134.6 cm) will require a minimum of 12 feet (3.66 m) apart, and for a 61’’ (154.9 cm) screen, there needs to be a 15 feet (4.57 m) distance.
- Choice of lighting:
During the screening, subtle and dimmed lighting arrangements can be achieved by using a dimmer. Incandescent lighting – whether it is recessed, hidden in an original way or set back – is what best meets these needs.
Setting up a home theater
- Choice of furniture:
When choosing furniture for your home theater room, comfort and durability are key criteria. Consider the layout and size of your room before choosing furniture. A scale drawing will give you a bird’s eye view of how your furniture will fit in the room.
- Audio system:
Modern technology provides a wide variety of options depending on your technological knowledge and budget. Even if an integrated home theater system is what will add more value to your house, boxed home theater packages are relatively easy to install and much more affordable than professionally installed systems.
