Critical considerations for your dream home theater installation
Published November 7, 2022

Watching movies on the big screen in a theater is one of the best pastimes of many people, but the trend has changed in the last few years. When the pandemic hit the world, the footfall in the theaters got a significant hit. However, the taste for watching movies on the big screen stayed. As a result, an increasing number of individuals invested in ways to watch a film on a big screen at home. 

 

Today, many people hang a screen on the wall or plug in a projector and choose to call that the home theater. But you need more than this if you want a great space that feels like a real movie theater. This is where home theater installation comes in. 

 

DIY is not the best route for a private cinema at home as it demands comfortable seating, amazing sound and video, and highly accessible technology. But many smart home automation companies help homeowners with end-to-end home theater installation services. A home theater installation company like ETC in West Palm Beach has been building the private cinema of dreams for homeowners in the region. 

 

In this blog, we will discuss the key things that an aware homeowner and a trusted, smart home automation company consider at the time of home theater installation. 

 

Top-notch seating & lighting  

A home theater installation company can handle the audio-video installation and cinema seating, lighting, and shading requirements for your home theater. You must consider seating and lighting at the time of investing in home theater installation. When you partner with a smart home automation company, it will enquire about the kind of vibe, look, and feel you seek. Whether you’re seeking a classic or modern design, the team of professionals will provide you with the right kind of high-end seating and lighting you might miss otherwise. 

 

Soundproofing & acoustic treatments

When you invest in high-quality surround sound speakers, acoustic treatments are essential to ensure your audio sounds are fully optimized. In the absence of acoustic panels on the ceiling and walls, there are high chances you will hear echo and slapping noises causing distortion, making your home theater viewing experience distracting and unpleasant. With a smart home automation company by your side, you don’t need to worry, as they will install absorptive fiberglass or foam treatments that blend well into your existing décor and don’t impact the aesthetic value of your place. 

 

Acoustic panels are designed to make your room’s audio sound better. A professional team also considers soundproofing the walls and door to ensure that your home theater sound is balanced and private.  

 

In-wall surround sound  

Surround sound systems generally include seven speakers and a subwoofer for low bass notes. This means a lot of speakers, which can impact the look of your room and may also congest it, when installed in an incorrect manner. But a smart home theater installation partner can wire and install speakers within the ceilings and walls. They ensure that the wire blend into your décor while ensuring high-fidelity sound delivery.  

 

Automated controls  

Home theaters usually have electronic systems: a projector, lights, speakers, media sources, and motorized shades, among others. Thus, it becomes a hassle sometimes to fiddle with various nobs and remotes when you use the theater. As a result, it can be problematic and impact your relaxing vibe. 

 

But, when you choose a smart home automation company, the team will consolidate all your tech into a unified smart system. You will be able to easily control and monitor everything from one place. It is totally up to you whether you want to operate the home theater using an app on your phone, tablet or directly a touchscreen on the wall—that easy.
