7 Custom Home Theater Options You Don’t Want To Overlook

7 Custom Home Theater Options You Don’t Want To Overlook

You know you want a custom home theater. Whether you are the biggest movie buff in Houston, TX, or you’re looking for a better way to catch every detail of a Texans game, a custom home theater can satisfy your every need for home entertainment. But while it seems easy to choose the size of your screen and how powerful you want your sound system to be, there are some things that tend to get overlooked by excited first-time consumers. The first step is to trust the pros at Relative Home Systems to guide you through every part of the process, and the second is to take a look at this list of commonly overlooked options that can take your theater to the next level:

1. Seating Distribution

Figuring out your seating arrangement is more than just placing a couple chairs around the room. In fact, in most homes, it’s probably one of the most important first steps you can take when designing your custom home theater. Where you sit will affect your optimal screen size, the best sound distribution and your overall enjoyment of the experience.

2. Seating Size

Here’s another one that you won’t want to take sitting down. Many initial custom home theater planners look for complete comfort in their seating without knowing that an oversized chair can ruin your surround sound quality. Choose a chair that is comfortable and supports your head and neck, but that doesn’t block the sound from getting to your ears.

3 Ways to Optimize the Surround Sound in Your Custom Home Theater

3 Ways to Optimize the Surround Sound in Your Custom Home Theater

From sound mixing to original soundtracks, moviemakers put as much effort into their audio as they do the images that go on your screen. Whether it’s the resounding boom of an explosion or the haunting whistling of the wind, immersive sound helps you escape the daily grind as you’re transported into your favorite movie. When designing a custom home theater, create a first-rate experience with audio rivaling that of a professional theater. Relative Home Systems can help you design a system primed to get the most out of your technology. 

Utilize Hi-End Speakers for Crisp Audio

Ultimately, the hi-fidelity sound in your custom home theater will only be as good as the quality of your speakers. Bowers & Wilkins’ CT700 and CT800 series bring authentic movie theater sound into your home. Incorporating the same technology that has made the English company the loudspeaker of choice for recording artists worldwide, the speakers offer every detail in crisp quality.

To incorporate the latest Dolby Atmos surround sound technology into your home, you can also go with Triad’s Bronze LR-H, combining a traditional speaker with an upward facing Dolby ® Atmos enabled speaker.  The loud speakers are crafted one at time to ensure top quality and are available in custom finishes and colors to better match your room’s décor.

3 Enhancements for Your Custom Home Theater

3 Enhancements for Your Custom Home Theater

The custom home theater in your Memorial, TX smart home should be a unique reflection of you and your style. After all, the whole point of a home theater is that you can imbue your personal style and sense of cinematic perfection into every aspect of the space. That being said, you’ve probably put a lot of thought into what you want out of your theater – even the things you may have previously overlooked – but now it’s time to think about some details. Read on to gain some ideas on how to enhance your theater experience seamlessly and elegantly.

Find the Right Screen

If you’ve chosen to go the traditional home theater route with a drop down 4K projector, you’ve made an excellent choice. However, a projector is only half of the equation. You’ll also have to consider what type of screen you’ll want.

As you already know, the screen size will be affected not just by the size of your room, but also by the position of the seating. You’ll also want to think about the particular screen material. Is there a lot of ambient light in your room? Then you may want to try a high-contrast dark grey or black screen, which gives you deep, rich blacks and reflects less light back at the viewer. Alternately, the industry-standard white screen will achieve the best brightness, but may pick up more light than simply what’s coming from the projector. While there’s no perfect choice for every custom home theater, there’s probably the right choice for yours!

How Can You Design the Perfect Home Theater for Your Next Project?

With the rise in quality home entertainment via Blu-Rays, media servers, streaming and cable, custom home theaters have become a popular request for many luxury homes. Whether it's a new construction or retrofit, for many builders and designers it can be difficult to find the balance between the technological requirements of a custom theater and the distinct style the clients want. This is why it's important to bring in a professional integrator for your next Austin, Texas project to better craft a space that meets all your clients' needs. Read on to find out how an expert integrator can help you build the perfect home theater.

Do a Thorough Initial Consultation

The first step is communicating with your clients to find out where the home theater will be installed. Once you have a space in mind, it's time to bring in a professional audio video integrator to gage the needs of the space. During this initial consultation it is important to take into account space limitations, light considerations, acoustics and preferred seating arrangements.

It is important that no electronic equipment be purchased before this stage, as the equipment needed could depend entirely on these details. Always build a home theater system to fit your space, not the other way around. After consultation, the integrator will work with you hand-in-hand throughout the installation process to ensure everything falls within your project's scope and budget.
