Here’s How to Avoid Them
A home theater is a sizable investment for most people. It may serve as a refuge and escape from the world, a family entertainment space, and even an immersive educational experience (Our Planet, anyone?) However, the home theater experience can be marred by little mistakes in the design and execution of the space.
Home theaters are often a crowning touch in a luxury home. The last thing you want is niggling issues that make your entertainment experience something less than wonderful. To make sure you avoid these issues, we’ve rounded up five mistakes that make our home theater designers cringe. Fortunately, when you work with GHT Group, you can take advantage of our three decades in home theaters (it’s the HT in our name) to make sure your theater doesn’t fall into these traps! Stay with us below.
Seating Is Job One
What’s the first thing you should think about when building a home theater? Is it the screen? The speakers? The lighting? While many details go into designing a home theater, savvy home theater designers know what drives the rest – seating.
While the type of seating is very important, the number of seats will really dictate many other things, such as screen size and placement, speaker placement, acoustic treatments, and more. Let’s explore how home theater designers think about seating and how that can impact the next home cinema in your Kennesaw, GA home.
It’s Not All About the Equipment
How do you design the ultimate home theater? Well, to start, it should be the ultimate home theater for you and your lifestyle. Whether your theater is evocative of the movie palaces of yesteryear or a sleek and modern multimedia space, it should fit your lifestyle.
While your home theater will benefit from the best equipment, the truth is that the best gear alone may not make for the engaging media experience. That’s why it pays to work with a professional home theater designer like GHT Group. We have been building home theaters in Metro Atlanta since before home theaters were a thing! Along the way, we've learned a thing or two about how to construct home theaters (and media rooms) the right way.

Make a Home Theater Your All-Singing, All-Dancing Entertainment Space
The term "home theater" probably evokes a certain image. Perhaps it's a dark room with comfortable lounge seating, a gigantic screen, and a powerful sound system. Maybe you already have such a theater, but you’re thinking, “aren’t there some other ways to take advantage of this space?”
You're right; there are. Home theaters aren't just for movies anymore. Don't get us wrong – today's movies will take full advantage of the visual and aural power of a home theater. But movies aren't the only content. Gaming in a home theater can be an amazing experience, and in some cases they will exploit even more of your screen and sound system than movies. And there's more.
