5 Deadly Sins That Make Home Theater Designers Cringe

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.

3 Ways to Do Surround Sound for Your Home Media Room

It’s Never Been Easier to Add Immersive Audio to Your Media Space

3 Ways to Do Surround Sound for Your Home Media Room

With the vast and ever-growing array of content available to watch in your home, a media room or home theater is a must for making the most of all that entertainment. If you have neither of them, you might be asking: what’s the difference between a home theater and a media room?

As the answer to the eternal home theater versus media room question, we’ll say it doesn’t matter what you call it. The truth is that today’s audio and video entertainment technology options blur the line between the theater and media room. We’ve covered this topic at some length in these blogs, but the main difference might be that a home media room is for varied media including movies, and the home theater is for movies and other varied media. See what we mean? It’s all about what you want and how you enjoy your entertainment. 

Audio technology has helped blur that line too. Some years ago, to get good surround sound required a stack of bulky electronics and a bunch of speakers. Today, sleek soundbars deliver excellent sound quality and surround effects for smaller (and not-so-small) media rooms. But if you want to go further, separate speakers and electronics deliver a sublime aural experience for movies and other content. In this blog, we'll cover three basic options for immersive surround sound in your Kennesaw, GA, media room.

4 Considerations for Seating in Home Theater Designs

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.

3 Screen Options for Your Dream Home Media Room

A media room is a space where you can enjoy a variety of entertainment. It can be a home theater, but we like to think of media rooms as multipurpose spaces, less formal than the dedicated theater with rows of plush seats. It is also a space likely to be used day and night, as opposed to a darkened home theater that you might not escape to by day. It may be your living or family room too.

So, what kind of screen can you use in your media room? The answer is almost anything goes, as you can go crazy with home theater-scale screens that can be hidden with clever technology. But most people want a large screen in a media room that isn’t crazy, hidden, or otherwise. With that in mind, we’d like to present 3 of today’s best options for home media rooms, ones that are versatile for all types of entertainment from sports to movies.
