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.

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.
As the premier home theater designer in Cumming and Metro Atlanta, we have a few ideas for enhancing your custom theater to take advantage of even more entertainment possibilities. Keep reading below!

The Cinema Experience Will Always Be Better at Home
The “HT” in GHT Group stands for home theater, and it’s been part of our company’s DNA for over 30 years. We have always been huge proponents that the cinema experience is better at home, and we have been proving it by building some of the finest custom home theaters in the Buckhead and Metro Atlanta areas for decades.
The many effects of the current pandemic have made the proposition for a custom home theater stronger than ever. Many commercial theaters have shut down or offer severely limited capacity. As a result, first-run movies are having a very short theater run or simultaneously appearing on streaming platforms at home. Beyond film, the plethora of options for high-quality video entertainment at home seems to expand daily. Given that, why not take the plunge and build your own custom home theater, one that supremely fits you and your family? Explore three compelling reasons below.

Enjoying the Cinema Experience at Home Is Easier Than Ever
The ongoing pandemic has turned many aspects of our lives upside down in the past few months. Families are working from home, schools are either remote or in a hybrid model, and a lot of entertainment is happening at home with large gatherings and public outings curtailed.
The pandemic won’t be with us forever, and lives will return to normal. But some trends that were happening long before this time have accelerated and will continue. One of those is the evolution of home entertainment. Recent closures of some cinemas due to pandemic effects have reduced the amount of new theatrical movies and content, with some going straight to video. Right now, a family or date night out at the movies is far more limited than it was less than a year ago.
Pandemic or otherwise, as home entertainment options continue to multiply, a home theater installation makes more sense than ever for your Smyrna, GA home. If you can't go out for a cinematic treat, why not bring it home with your own home theater? Here are three reasons to get you started.

Got Surround Sound? Get Your Money’s Worth with these Soundtracks
A few weeks ago, we wrote about how video games can help you exercise the latest features of your home theater setup. It's true, some of the best video games take full advantage of 4K, HDR, and the latest immersive sound formats. And we also noted that many movies don't take full advantage of everything your up-to-date theater or media room can do.
However, we didn’t mean to imply that you’ve wasted your money on your 4K HDR Sony projector, or that McIntosh-based Dolby Atmos multi-channel surround system. Indeed, we think that an incredible soundtrack does as much to draw you into a film as fantastic cinematography and special effects. So, we set out to find the best movies to bring a knowing smile to your face that says yes, that Dolby Atmos system was the best entertainment investment ever. And if you don’t have an immersive surround sound system yet, GHT Group is your local Atlanta home theater company you can trust for the job.
Now, on to the top three movies that will put your surround sound – and maybe your ears – through a torture test.

Explore New Artful Screen and Sound Options to Keep Your Room Sleek
A media room is a home space where you can enjoy your audio and video entertainment in high quality, both for casual TV show viewing and more immersive movie watching. Unlike a home theater, the space may pull double duty – as a living room, family room, game room, or some other multipurpose area in modern homes with more open designs.
When it comes to the technology that delivers the visual and audio experience, some people may not want the equipment to intrude. Bookshelf and tower speakers may overwhelm the room, or their placement doesn’t fit the aesthetics of the room. Aside from speakers, TVs often become the focal point of a space. When they’re not in use, design-minded people might chuff at looking at a large black rectangle mounted on the wall.
The leading makers of audio and video equipment also understand the importance of design. A whole range of products exists that marry exemplary audio and video performance with subdued design that blends well with the rest of the room. In this blog, we’ll cover two of those options for a media room design in your Atlanta, GA home that is as visually appealing as the rest of your home.
