From the avid sports enthusiast or movie buff and series marathoners, an epic home theater is the ultimate must-have. We here at Puget Services have compiled a list of the most essential criteria for your maximum viewing pleasure when seeking to add a professional quality home theater in Seattle. Be sure to check off the following in order to help make your theater experience epic.
Designate the Space
For those fortunate enough to have a spare room available, not much beats having a designated cinema space to retreat to. Select your area based on who will be using it the majority of the time, and what is most comfortable for the entire family.
Consider furnishing your new theater space with comfortable theater style seating. Countless options are available from leather seating which includes cup holders and posh recliners.
Measure the area where the TV will be placed to determine what screen size will fit properly in the space you have available. Remember, the television’s screen size is measured diagonally, but also don’t forget to take into consideration depth, length, and width of the entire housing.
If the TV will be mounted to a wall, double check that the viewing height will be comfortable at eye level. This will prevent strained necks, but also add to the visual appeal of the display. If space permits, consider installing a projector for that maximum movie goer experience which can display on a large blank wall and be seamlessly integrated into the room’s ceiling above.
Consider aesthetics. There are many speaker manufactures who focus on the sound quality of the speaker as well as the overall look of the product. A great speaker processes both excellent acoustics and aesthetics alike. If mounting your TV to the wall, plan ahead for the wiring path to be hidden behind furniture or a wall in order to avoid visible and messy cables which could be a potential tripping hazard.
For larger spaces, speakers integrated in the ceiling out of view are an excellent way to free up extra floor or wall space. When sound comes from above, it can make the viewer feel as if they are in the action of the flick.
Safety is important when installing any new home theater system. Handling electricity and running wires can be dangerous to the untrained electrician, and making sure that a new home theater can be supported by your homes electric system is equally important as selecting all of the best components.
