How to design a home theater

If you're considering installing a home theater or redesigning an existing one, one of the first steps will be to browse the various options for home theater furniture and accessories. From elaborate stadium seating and cinema-style curtains to in-room popcorn machines, the options are just about infinite and can add style, comfort, and personality to your home theater design.


Here are some different things to take into account when you're designing a home theater: 



When you're building a home theater, it's important to decide whether you want it to feel like a traditional movie theater or more like a living room.


In a traditional movie theater, the focus is on the screen. Seats are often arranged in rows, and there's little to no furniture in front of or behind the seats—just rows of chairs facing forward.


In contrast, a living room tends to have more furniture around the TV, so that everyone can watch comfortably while sitting around the TV.



If you're going for maximum theater-ness, then you'll want to invest in a projector that can throw a big image onto the wall. On the other hand, if you want to watch sports, make sure the screen is high-definition and large enough to see the action clearly. 


Consider how much space your TV will take up in the room when it's not being used as a home theater. You don't want your guests sitting around looking at an empty wall!



Add lighting even in darkness so that your guests are comfortable and have a good time watching their favorite movie or show. You can even add a starry night to your home theater!
