Growth depends on desire. You cannot grow without desiring it and then acting on that desire.
Looking for a home theater but not sure where to start? We can help! Our expert staff will work with you side by side through the design and installation process ensuring your home theater becomes everything you expected. We understand that there are many options to choose from when building a home theater. We are here to help you through the process down to the very last detail. From the type of projector and screen, the quality and placement of speakers, to the home theater seats, each part plays an important role in making the most of your home theater experience.
A home theater is one of the best enhancements you can make to your home and lifestyle. A custom home theater gives you a place to relax and wind down, gather together as a family, and entertain your friends and family on special occasions such as sporting events or movie nights.
Lifestyle Theater Room or Dedicated Home Theater?
The first step in this process is deciding where in your home your theater will be located. Believe it or not almost any room in your home can be transformed into a home theater. A few examples are living rooms, basements, bonus rooms, or even a spare bedroom. The type of home theater depends on the space and how you see yourself using it. A dedicated home theater is a room specifically for entertainment: Movies, TV Shows, Sporting Events, and even playing Video Games. A lifestyle home theater generally resides in a multi-purpose area and is used for more than just entertaining. Lifestyle home theaters can take on many different shapes and sizes and can often reside in living rooms, open basements, and even outside on your patio.
Screen Size – What’s The Best Size For Your Room?
Often one of the most misunderstood aspects of a home theater is the size of the screen. A common mistake is getting hung up or set on one particular size of screen whether it is a TV or Projection Screen. To some, a 65” TV may feel quite large in the store, but when placed in a 20’ x 20’ room with 10’ ceilings, that same 65” TV now feels a little small. Inversely, sticking a 100” projection screen in a 10’ x 10’ spare bedroom may be a bit too large to comfortably watch or enjoy. The best way to determine your home theater screen size is to take into account the height of the wall where the screen will be located, the distance you will be viewing it from, and any structural barriers that may present themselves. We even recommend cutting a piece of cardboard or putting painters tape on the wall to mark out your screen location. After you have it marked, sit back in your chair and as yourself whether what you are seeing is comfortable or not. If it works, that’s great! If not, re-adjust your dimensions and consider moving the screen higher or lower. Once you’ve made some adjustments, check again until you have an idea of a size and location that is comfortable for you. Our trained staff can help you answer all these questions to ensure your screen is the perfect size for your room. We recommend taking advantage of our free in-home consultation to better serve your needs.
Choosing The Right Equipment
For most people, this is the most enjoyable yet challenging part of the process. Picking out the perfect projector or TV and speakers is what will make your home theater come to life. Video technology has evolved so quickly that you can have an incredible picture for a fraction of what a high definition set used to cost. Speakers, however, have held steady in their cost to performance ratio. Speaker technologies are constantly advancing and improving, making your surround sound home theater experience better than you ever thought possible. At Infinite Home Theater, helping you make the very best choices for your home theater and budget is our specialty. Our experience and expertise in this area will take what was once an overwhelming process and make it the easiest decision you’ve ever made.
Home Theater Finishing Touches
As we said before, each piece plays an important role in creating your home theater experience. From the screen and speakers, to the lighting, chairs, and popcorn, each piece draws you in to the total home theater experience. Spending a few extra dollars on a great universal remote, lighting control, popcorn machine, or theater seating can add the “wow factor” to your home theater. We’ve got lots of suggestions to make a home theater just what you’ve always wanted.
Other things to consider are the electrical system and layout in the room, HVAC so your room is comfortable, ventilation for your equipment, and integrating gaming systems. Once it’s all done we’ll make sure to spend the time with you to make sure that you get the most out of your home theater experience and know how to control it with confidence. You can rest assured that we are always on-call should you have a home theater emergency or forget how parts of the system work. One of our experienced technicians will be available to assist you over the phone or schedule a service call if necessary.
