Many people are finding new ways to stay entertained without going out on the town, which is why home theater systems are so popular. You can have that spectacular theater experience without the hassle of dressing up, fighting traffic and standing in long lines. In addition, a home theater can help bring new meaning to movie night with the kids.
You can choose your favorite beverages and snacks instead of having to take what the concession stand offers. If you need to, you can even pause the movie so everyone can take a bathroom break or to deal with any other crisis the kids may have. When you have young kids, you never know what might pop up.
Another advantage of having a home theater is that you get to choose the movie you want to watch instead of choosing between the limited options offered by theaters. It’s also a great way to entertain friends, especially when you get together to watch your favorite sports team play.
You decide how big and elaborate or how simple you want your system to be, so you can easily find one that fits your budget. However, you may need a little help finding the system that suits your home the best.
In order to get that dramatic effect that makes you feel like you’re in the center of all the action, you must have the right system. Choosing the right size TV and speakers is vital in having a system that creates the illusion of being in a real theater. If the TV screen is too large for the room, it can be hard on the eyes and if it’s too small, you’ll lose some of the dramatic effect.
The surround sound system plays a major role in creating the illusion of sitting in a theater but everything from the size of the room to the location of the system will influence the sound effects. For this reason, you can’t just look up which systems have good reviews because they will sound different based on the environment where it’s installed.
A good Miami interior decorator will ensure you choose the best home theater system but that’s not all. In addition to helping you choose the right system, she can help you create the right environment.
There’s more to having a home theater than choosing a TV and sound system. The environment can add to or take away from the effects. You need good, comfortable seating that will accommodate everyone in your family and any guests you plan to invite to your home. The speakers must be placed in the correct position, which is usually in each corner of the room but it will depend on the system you choose and the size of the room.
You’ll also need overhead lights with dimmer switches and adding LED string lighting is a nice touch that will give your home that theatrical look. These must also be placed properly because you need to be able to see when walking around but you don’t want the lights interfering with the view of the screen.
A home interior decorator can help you choose the best system, make sure it’s installed properly and help you create a theatrical environment that makes you feel like you’re right there in the middle of the movie. Installing a home theater system is an excellent idea and your interior decorator can help you create the ultimate entertainment experience.
