Questions to Ask When Designing a Home Theatre
If you love nothing more than sitting back and enjoying a good movie or TV show, a home theatre is definitely something to consider. At Flexi, we have many years of experience in designing home theatres across Perth. We’ve put together some of the top questions to ask when designing a home theatre, to make the process as easy as possible. Let’s get started!
What Part of the House will You Use?
If you’re looking to construct a custom home theatre within your existing home space, here are some common ways to create space:
- Section off part of the living area
- Utilise a loft space
- Turn a spare bedroom or study area into your home theatre
If possible, it’s best to try and provide some space between your home theatre and the main living or working areas in your home, to offer more privacy.
What Size Screen will You be Using?
It’s important to consider your AV equipment needs (including the size and amount of equipment needed) during the design phase, as this will help in the construction of cabinetry and other features. It will also help you to consider your seating needs, the placement of your speakers, and other important factors.
Would You Like to Add More Practical Touches?
While a big screen and cosy seating might be enough for you, there are also plenty of other features you can add to your home theatre. For example, you could create more storage options in the room by adding bookcases (perfect for storing games and video game equipment). If you’re looking to use the room to entertain, a bar or even space for a pool table could be the way to go. It certainly pays to consider the practical touches that can create long-term versatility.
What Lighting Will Work Best?
Lighting can really help to create the right mood in your new theatre room. This can be a mixture of overhead task lighting, strip lighting or other soft illumination to add warmth to the room. While you obviously don’t want anything too bright or harsh, it’s important to consider the options available. Your Flexi designer can help to point you in the right direction.
What Décor Do You Require?
Last but not least, does your home theatre need to match the décor of the rest of your home? For example, do you want more of a classic style, or will this room allow you to incorporate some more modern features? Again, your Flexi designer can help you consider the best ways to incorporate your home theatre design into your existing home space.
