Sound Design

The first secret to an immersive audio experience in your private screening room that makes you feel like you’re in a commercial movie theater is to avoid relying on the speakers from your TV screen or a soundbar. Investing in high-quality speakers designed to help you get lost in a film gives you the cinematic sound you crave.

When it comes to home theater sound systems, best practice is to install two front speakers, two back speakers, one center speaker, in-wall speakers, and a subwoofer. Speaker placement is critical to having high-quality sound no matter where you’re seated in your screening room.


Proper Technology

Of course, the technology you use can make or break the atmosphere in your private screening room. There are many displays on the market for you to choose from, including OLED TVs, LCD TVs, Ultra HD TVs, and even video projectors and screens.

Finding out which option is best for you ultimately comes down to personal preference mixed with what will work best in your screening room. Maybe you have the notion that the biggest screen possible will help you enjoy your favorite films, but that’s not always the case. Surprisingly, room size and furniture position play a role in which viewing size is right for you.



It’s easy to get lost in the innovative technology that exists today for home theaters, but don’t forget about the power of the right seating! Your seating options and arrangements play a crucial part in your enjoyment of a screening experience. The key to finding the perfect seating is finding options that are the right size for your space, accommodate the specific needs of family and friends that will be enjoying your private screening room, and won’t disrupt acoustics.

You want durable furniture that’s built with comfort and style.
