Ultimate Home Theatre Design Tips:
Home theatres have very quickly become a must-have room for families building their dream home.
Whether you have a family full of sports fans, or you just want somewhere to binge-watch the latest Netflix series, a theatre room is a great addition to any home. Deciding what you want from a theatre room before choosing your house design will ensure that your vision is brought to life perfectly.
When working out exactly what you want your home theatre to look like, there are a few things to consider:
Start by deciding what size theatre room, and then you can work out what fittings you want. When it comes to a home theatre, bigger is better, especially for families; but if your block size can’t accommodate it, then a smaller theatre can still be a cozy and inviting space.
Open plan or enclosed?
Do you want your theatre to be open plan or enclosed? There are a few factors that may affect this decision, apart from personal preference. Look at your floor plan carefully, how close will the theatre be to bedrooms? Are there other TVs in close proximity? Will the sound carry? Talk to your new home consultant about your options.
Choice of doors
It might seem like a minor detail, but what door you pick is actually quite important. From a standard door to french or sliding doors, there are a few options. If your theatre is on the smaller side then a standard door might get in the way and make furniture placement difficult, consider upgrading to sliding doors to help conserve floor space.
Are you going to place the TV on an entertainment unit or do you want to wall-mount it? If you would like to mount a TV to the wall or a projector to the ceiling, make sure you bring this up during the design/pre-start process, as getting the prep work done upfront can save you money later on.
When it comes to home design tips for designing the perfect theatre room, the choice of window treatments can make or break the whole space. Do you want the space to be darker? Blockout blinds are a great option for ensuring total darkness, or if you are wanting to give the room a luxurious feel and amazing acoustics then thick curtains are also an option.
Before settling on all the finer details of your new theatre room, do your research. Visit display homes with theatre rooms and take note of what you like and what you dislike, bring these ideas along to your pre-start meeting and it will make the whole process a lot easier.
A theatre room is a fantastic addition to any home and will bring your family years and years of entertainment and enjoyment.
