Watch a movie, listen to your favorite playlist, play pool or cards, or enjoy cocktails with friends. You can do it all in your multipurpose home theater. While in the past, a private home cinema was usually designed as a “one-trick pony” (i.e., a place for movie watching only), today’s new concepts in home theater installation are transforming how homeowners experience home entertainment.
Add more variety to your life with a multipurpose theater in your Cashiers, NC, home. A multi-use space is a versatile place where you can enjoy a wide range of activities. Keep reading for more details!
Even though we’re creating a multipurpose space, it doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice the home theater experience. Quite the contrary! Your multi-use room can have everything a high-end home theater has: a big screen TV or projector system, surround sound, luxury theater seats or sofas, and theater lighting and decor. When it’s movie time, press one button on your smart home tablet, and all the technologies adjust – making movie magic happen in an instant!
Whether you want to watch the latest movie, binge-watch your favorite TV shows, or play a game, 4K UHD TVs with OLED technology deliver vibrant life-like images that put you in the center of it all. Add to that themed home theater décor, and you’ll feel like you stepped into a luxury theater – but it’s right in your home.
It doesn’t matter what you’re watching on the big screen – if the sound is subpar, the experience will certainly fall flat. A robust and properly installed surround-sound system is essential not only for watching movies but for immersing yourself in your favorite songs. One tap on your smartphone or tablet, and you can fill the room with the media you love.
They don’t call it a “3D sound experience” for nothing! A standard surround-sound setup includes a center speaker, two front speakers, and two side speakers, as well as a subwoofer. But you don’t have to stop there. Some systems have a lot more than that! For instance, the 11.1.2 setup means the system has 11 speakers, one subwoofer, and two overhead speakers that effectively immerse you in the music, sound effects, and dialogue.
Here’s where the term “home theater” transforms into a multi-use space. If you’d rather do something else rather than watch a movie, then raise the shades, turn up the smart lighting, and play music in the background while spending time with family or friends. When considering a home theater installation, why not plan for more space behind your theater seats? Add a billiard table, foosball table, or a virtual golf simulator. A wet bar will make the space even more enjoyable!
Something else to keep in mind is this: all the technologies in your home theater can be hidden when not in use! In-wall speakers can either blend in with your wall (with matching grille colors) or be concealed within the wall itself. TVs can raise into the ceiling, transform into mirrors or works of art, or conceal themselves within cabinets.
