For that perfect movie night experience, the most popular places these days are found in one’s basement. The fact of the matter is that so many of those planning a home theater room begin there because they are starting with a cave-like, yet cozy feeling to launch their project from.
Take a look at these tips if you are seeking to create your own personal home theater.
Home Theater vs. Media Room
Home theaters and media rooms do have their distinct differences. In the case of the media room, one seeks to obtain additional purposes other than just using it for movies and TV. The good news is that if this is your goal, you have the availability of putting dimmable lighting and blackout shades, among other things, to help you accomplish it!
But when it comes to just the home theater, ideally the room will have little or no window spaces and be a fairly large design. If it is equipped also with some sort of sound dampening design features, it will not in any way disrupt any other part of the household as the sounds and vibrations will be greatly contained.
Essentials Of The Home Theater
The full home theater experience will be enhanced by the inclusion of the following items:
Proper insulation of the interior and exterior walls and the ceiling.
Closet or cabinet to house the media equipment.
Additional sound barriers designed to prevent sound vibration movement(like resilient channels for instance).
Remote control system, DVD player and high quality large screen projector.
Surround sound system(comprised of speakers, subwoofer and receiver).
Basement Design Of Home Theater
A home theater is truly brought to life when there is a dedicated space specially designed to enjoy that spectacular movie experience we all love. You can and will get the best results if you can spare that specific area or extra room in your basement to house the project.
The other good news is that with today’s hidden technology, all the cords, speakers and wires can either be hidden entirely, or incorporated into the design of the room.
