Tips for Building a Home Theater Room

      If you love the experience of going to the movie theater but hate leaving the comfort of your home—and paying the consistently rising ticket and snack prices—consider creating your very own movie theater in your house. Home movie theaters are becoming increasingly common, as the cost of televisions and other electronics has declined significantly. Today, building a home theater is more affordable than ever. To get started, consider these tips for building a home theater room.
Invest in comfortable seating
     Aside from the television, the seating is the most important aspect of your home theater. If your seating isn’t comfortable, spending hours watching movies on it will be hard. As such, it’s important to invest in a comfortable sofa or recliner.
Soundproof your theater
     Irritating noises coming from outside your theater room can spoil your movie-watching experience. To reduce such disturbances, make sure to soundproof your in-home theater. Ways to soundproof include equipping your room with acoustic sound-deadening drywall, carpeting, sound panels, and drapes.
Eliminate all sources of glare
      Glare on your television can be distracting. Minimizing glare is essential to controlling the ambient light in your theater. Examples of how to do so include purchasing thick curtains that can effectively block out light or setting up your theater in a windowless room in your house, such as the basement.

Amp up your sound system

     Sound quality plays a large role in creating an immersive movie-watching experience. To recreate theater-quality sound in your home theater, you’ll need a little more than your TV’s built-in sound system. As such, you should consider investing in a quality sound system. Because these systems can get pretty pricey, you could also opt for a sound bar instead.
Adjust your television’s picture settings

     A crisp, clear picture is essential for any home movie theater. To ensure your television’s picture quality is as good as possible, make sure to adjust your TV’s picture settings. Even the most high-tech TV can appear to have poor picture quality if its color, brightness, and contrast settings aren’t optimized to complement the unique lighting in a given environment.
