Avoid These 3 Home Theater Installation Mistakes

Your Home Entertainment Requires Better Quality Than DIY Has to Offer

Avoid These 3 Home Theater Installation Mistakes

Everyone loves a great DIY project, whether it’s planting a raised garden bed for the first time or painting an accent wall in the bedroom of your Grosse Pointe, MI, home. But some projects should remain in the hands of the professionals instead of going the do-it-yourself route. One such professional-only project is a home theater installation.

Scroll below to read our blog and discover three top home theater design and installation mistakes we’ve seen while out in the field completing AV projects. Keep reading!

1. The Seating Is Uncomfortable

There’s no enjoyment to be found in a day-long movie marathon if you and your guests aren’t comfortable the entire time. Shifting from side to side, having to lean back or forward to view the screen in its entirety, and uncomfortable fabrics are all reasons your home theater or media room’s seating needs a professional’s touch. Plush fabrics dampen sound reflection while also adding to the overall design aesthetic of your entertainment spaces. Choose from chaise loungers, sectional sofas, tiered seating, and even bean bag chairs to ensure every viewer - from the kids to the grandparents - can sit comfortably for any Netflix binge or marathon viewing session.

2. The Screen Is Too Big

Many homeowners believe it’s better to go big and bold, but unfortunately, that’s not always the case for a home theater. The size and shape of a room help determine the ideal screen size for an entertainment space. Our expert team can assess your room’s dimensions and your budget to determine the best-suited TV or projector and projection screen combination for your viewing pleasure!

3. The Sound Isn’t Immersive

There’s a science to home theater audio, and installing an insufficient number of speakers or installing them in the incorrect locations can ruin an entertainment space. Bassy low notes for action scenes and crystal-clear dialogue are imperative for any genre or media, whether a football game, movie, TV show or exercise video. Professional speaker placement ensures no seat in the room is uncomfortable to sit in due to too-loud or too-quiet audio. Add asurround sound setup featuring advanced sound capabilities, such as Dolby Atmos, and the viewer is instantly transported into the stands of their favorite sports team or the riveting car chase scene of the latest blockbuster film.
