How to Add a Home Theater to Your Custom Home

Although a movie night at home sounds like a fun idea, doing it on the patio along with grilling up some hot dogs and hamburgers is almost impossible in the heat. That’s why a home theater in your custom home could be the way to go. 

The summer movie season is one of the most exciting parts of the year. But if you’re deep in the process of designing, building, or moving into a custom home, then you might not have time to go to the movies. Although a movie night at home sounds like a fun idea, doing it on the patio along with grilling up some hot dogs and hamburgers is almost impossible in the heat. That’s why a home theater in your custom home could be the way to go. 

What You’ll Need 

Creating and furnishing a home theater is one of the many ways you can use the spare room in your home. Then again, this all depends on the size of that room, and the location. A room underneath the stairs going up isn’t ideal, because you won’t be able to fit everyone into it, let alone all of the extra equipment and snacks that you will need to take the experience to the next level. A smart projector is one of the key pieces, and you can’t go without having the best sound system you can afford. 

A soundbar can make a magnificent difference, but it depends on how much you want to mimic the true theater experience and what your budget is like. Don’t forget the screen that you should pair with your projector. A stretch of the empty wall will work in the short term, but you shouldn’t have to look at that every time. 

Arranging the Home Theater 

One trick to make your home theater more impressive is to have the walls and ceilings painted. For best results, decide to incorporate this room into the design your custom home early on in the process. That way, you won’t have to spend extra money once the main part of the process is over. The right floor plan and dimmer switches will help you make the most of the experience. 

Adding the Technology 

Find somewhere in the room to place the projector and set up the sound system. You will want to make this as natural as possible so the people you gather for your next movie night won’t complain about sore necks once the lights come up. Search the internet for how-to videos if you don’t know where to start, or ask your friends and neighbors for advice.
