The 3 Essentials of a Dedicated Home Theater

Here are the Basics Needed for Your Cinema

The 3 Essentials of a Dedicated Home Theater

Whether you’re just starting out in West University Place or moving to another area of Texas, your own custom home theater installation is a great way to ensure you have a beautiful space to enjoy movies. Figuring out what you want in the space, though, can be nerve-wracking.

What exactly makes up a theater anyway – or rather, what is a must for one?

We’re here to help you with your design and installation process. The design and layout are as important as the products you choose, and not just to ensure your new theater is pleasing to the eye. The right design will optimize the room to visual and sound quality, too. In this blog, we’ll go through the top three necessary features for your home theater system.

You can achieve the ultimate viewing experience every time with these features that make your home cinema the only place you need for your next movie night. Keep on reading below.




Custom Seating Design

One of the major components of a dedicated theater that many homeowners don’t think of initially is the seating.

The comfort of your seat is crucial. Think about how your seats at a commercial theater feel, and how you undoubtedly remember the times when they were awful to sit in!

How luxurious you choose your seats to be is up to you, but the best part is you have lots of options.  Even if you want a custom seating arrangement instead of the traditional route, you can have your seats match the theater’s theme.

There are a variety of patterns, styles, and fabrics to pick for your seats.  We recommend a fabric or material that is non-sound absorbing so that it won’t throw off the room’s natural acoustics.  Leather is a great option.

Installing the seats correctly is key too.  In order to stop sound-muffling, placing the seats in a “sweet triangle” is ideal.  This means the seats form a triangle outward from in between the most left and right speakers in the room. This keeps the headrests from obstructing others’ views and optimizes the space’s acoustics.


4K Screen or Projector Combo

You can pick from a flat-screen TV or a combination of a pull-down screen and in-ceiling projector, but regardless of which you prefer, choosing a 4K Ultra HD resolution system is a must. You could even opt for a motorized screen with a video wall!

The 4K makes every moment in the theater feel like an immersive and never-before-seen experience.  You’ll never want to see movies at the local theater again.

If you’re wondering which type of screen to choose, don’t let your interior design be a deciding factor.  With hidden technology, neither will be a hindrance to your room’s theme, whether you want it to look traditional or unique.

Projectors can lower from the ceiling with a push of a button, and so can your screens.  A flat-screen TV can even double as a mirror or have a panel with gorgeous artwork on it covering the front.

You get to decide how often you want your theatrical equipment visible and when.  The control is all in your hands.


High-Performance Speakers

The other half of making a home theater environment envelop you is its speakers. Their quality needs to match the rest of your theater’s products, so when you listen to a film or show, you are brought right into that world with high-performance audio. Triad offers fantastic options for high-end speakers that are ideal for a home theater space. 

Besides choosing speakers that produce unparalleled, high-end audio, installing them the correct way is just as important. Strategically placing the speakers around your theater will create a surround sound setup that provides high audio quality for every listener in the room.

Depending on the look you’re going for, there are a few different types of speakers we recommend as well. In-wall and in-ceiling ones are just like their screen counterparts—perfect for a sleek and classy display that will lower when needed and hide completely. Cabinet or bookshelf speakers are smaller and can fit in and on top of furniture. 

For the highest of sound quality, standing loudspeakers are the way to go.  They add to a very conventional theater look, and they deliver incomparable audio.
