Home theaters change just as much as technology does, which means that our approach towards designing a home theater can change every year. While just a decade ago the modern home theater was defined by large plasma screen TVs, these days home theaters look pretty different. Nowadays, most homeowners opt for flat-panel LCD displays for watching the internet or playing video games. Some other features may include surround-sound audio or even a pool table if you want to make your home theater a game room as well. Whatever you decide to do, there are a few things to consider before planning your home theater in your new home.
Location of your home theater depends on your particular needs. If you want it accessible to the kitchen so guests can get snacks or you can keep your eye on children, then an open floor plan that blends the kitchen and home theater spaces together could be ideal. Other homeowners opt for a more removed home theater experience and place it in the basement to help contain the sound and make it feel like an entirely separate entity from the rest of your house.
Taking Care of Noise
Keeping the room acoustically isolated is a great way of preventing movie-watching from impacting everyone else in the home. This may include using framing techniques that separate one side of a wall from the other, limiting the vibration, as well as acoustic tiles or sound-deadening drywall options.
