Essentials For Creating A Cinema Quality Home Theater

Collaborate With a Professional Design Company to Get a Jumpstart on Your Home Theater

Essentials For Creating A Cinema Quality Home Theater

With cinemas being closed during the recent pandemic, you might be craving a cinematic experience in the safety of your home so you can watch or re-watch your favorite movies and new releases without exposing yourself to the dangers of covid. If you have the space for it in your Ladue, MO home, the easiest solution is to have a professional design and build a home theater for you which can seat you and your family for a fun home entertainment experience. Having a home theater design company join the process early on in your new build or remodel will help in the following ways.

The main attraction is the screen and video equipment, which will be used for watching movies. When selecting a screen, the most important considerations include the size and type of the screen. There are multiple screen options, but the most common video setup involves using standard mounted screens with a projector system. By including a professional in the selection process, they can determine the best screens for your room capable of accommodating different room layouts and lighting. For example, in small multi-purpose environments a retractable screen can disappear when not in use. If there is ambient light pouring into the room, your home theater design professional can install motorized shades during the building phase—ensuring there’s enough room for mounting fascia.

Sound and Acoustics

A professional joining your project early will also help in setting up your room acoustics and speaker layout. For realistic sound, your home theater should incorporate Dolby Atmos surround sound with speakers in front, next to, to the rear and above the listeners. Your design professional works with your builder and architect to get wiring to all your speakers before construction starts. They’ll also work with relevant contractors to ensure there’s enough room to incorporate in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Finally, it’s time to consider acoustics. In some cases, sound proofing may be needed to keep sound from seeping in and out of the theater. In other cases, acoustic panels are added to fix muddled sound, especially when it comes to bass frequencies.


The setup should be simplistic, and the layout should not feel excessively cluttered with furniture or wiring, which is why you need to work with a professional who knows how to measure everything and create a design of what you want the final theater to look like. These professionals can also help in selecting theater seating according to your capacity limits, while ensuring they are comfortable and able to accommodate your family. The seating area should be at a suitable distance from the screen to avoid neck or eye strain. Professionals can also incorporate additional considerations about the layout including carpeting, and even introducing seating at a specific height which needs to incorporate well-lit stairs. 

Now that you have a basic grasp of the major components required for a home theater setup, you might find the overall process overwhelming, which is why we recommend working with a trusted home theater design company such as Elite Technology Solutions.
