A home theater makes an exciting addition to your living space. You can completely enjoy great audio video quality, seating, and comfort in your private entertainment room. You’ll discover that one of the most important elements of constructing a home theater is décor. The entire feel of the theater comes from the harmonious blending of decorative elements and accessories – ceiling and wall coverings, drapes, lights and accents. We can help you create a well-planned home theater, with balanced décor, that will quickly become your favorite family hangout.
How to Decorate your Home Theater
You can design and decorate your home theater within your budget. Just follow these simple and easy guidelines:
Ceiling and Wall Coverings
Like any other room, the home theater room’s ceilings and walls are very important for the overall theater experience. A drop ceiling is great for acoustics, sound proofing and creating a hidden space for wiring.
Walls do not just provide a solid sound reflecting surface but also add to the décor. Dry and plaster walls are usually torn down or covered with acoustic panels. This step minimizes the sound loss. You can also get the walls covered with thin carpets.
Big or small, every window in the room should be covered and properly shaded. Thick, lined curtains in darker hues are perfect for the cinema hall at home.
A home theater with wooden or concrete floors does not reflect sound and does not create the desired sound effect. The best choice for home theater flooring is carpet. For an authentic cinema feeling in your home theater, try a themed carpet.
The lights play an important role in the home theater. Proper arrangement and positioning of lights is crucial creating ambience in your room. Try to avoid bright white lights- they make your entertainment room feel like a work space and distract from video screens. Recessed lights look very neat and professional. Remote -operated light dimmers enable users to turn the lights on and off as required without leaving their seats.
While altering the entire room is not always an option, you can simply redo its interiors to suit your requirements. Rugs on the floor and thick shades against the windows are great ways to minimize sound and light loss. Dark walls and ceilings with wall sconces or recessed lighting fit perfectly with the theater ambience.
