Planning Your Custom Home Theater
Home entertainment rooms have become more or less expected in a new home. Whether your media room is hidden into your dining room for pop-up movie nights, or a established and elaborate room, your entertainment space not only adds to your enjoyment, it greatly contributes to the resale value of your home.
As you’re deciding on the design of your custom home theater, you’ll want to keep in mind a few elements to maximize your family’s enjoyment of your home theater. The most important is location, location, location. Light and sound penetration will disturb your entertainment experience. So it is important to try to keep your entertainment room free of natural light and outside sound.
