Three Tips for Designing a Home Theater in a Small Space

In an ideal world, you would have a large, open space to design the home-theater system of your dreams. However, for the average homeowner, space is always limited. If you only have a small room in your home to dedicate to your home theater, you can still design an awesome space. You will just need to apply a little creativity. Here are some tips to help you get started.

Mount Everything

In a small area, preserving as much space on the floor as you can is important. One way to do this is to use the walls in the room as much as you can. For instance, instead of installing floor mounted speakers, install wall-mounted speakers.

Keep this same train of thought when it comes to mounting your screen. Even in a small space, the more area you can keep open on the floor, the larger you can make the space look and the easier it will be for you and your family to navigate around the room with ease.

Plan Sound Accordingly

Although you want a big, powerful sound system, make sure you aren't overdoing things. When you get an overly powerful sound system for a small room, this doesn't always work out well. In fact, it can actually highlight the smallness of the room.

Doing so will create somewhat of a distortion in what you hear that will make it sound like you are watching a film in a closet rather than your home theater, making the room seem even smaller. To avoid this mistake, it's always best to have the space measured by a professional before selecting a system to ensure it is properly sized for the space.

Choose Alternative Seating

In a home theater, seating is one of the most important aspects of the room. If you're working with a small space, it might be a better idea for you to pass on the traditional, large, bulky theater chairs. Instead, you can go for something like a sectional.

The right sectional can provide just as much seating as individual chairs, but generally with a smaller space requirement. If you aren't a fan of sectionals, just remember that you can choose any type of seating you want; just ensure it's plush and comfortable.

It doesn't matter how small your space is: if you want a home-theater room, this is something you can do. Ensure you're working alongside a team of professionals, such as one from A Tech Security, for the best results.
