How To Build Your Ideal Home Theater


You have probably heard the expression: “you can’t have it all.” However, when it comes to enjoying a movie that simply isn’t true: you can have a fully cinematic experience without having to leave your home. You can also have a high performing system that fits in with your home decor. Adding a home theater to your Miami, FL abode allows you to personalize your movie experience in a space that matches your style. To ensure a balance between design and performance, follow these three tips. Continue reading to learn more.

Prepare the Room

One of the most overlooked considerations when designing a home theater is the space. If you are building a new home or have several options, bring a professional integrator into the process of selecting the room. The space can then be optimized for use as a theater by managing the lights and acoustics through the appropriate flooring, furniture and paint colors. Your integrator will combine facets of your style with what will work best technically. For instance, you may like to use lighter colors in your decorating. They can help find a projector that would work for this sort of environment.

If you already have a space in mind, never fear; your integrator can use smart technology to offset any potential issues. For instance, if your space has a lot of ambient light, they can use blackout motorized shades or a special screen.

Utilize Hidden Technology

Selecting the right equipment is so important to the quality of your audio and visual experience. However, you may not want your gear to define your space. A great way to merge the gap between style and performance are hidden technologies. When it comes to audio, your integrator can utilize hidden speakers that are installed in your walls, ceiling, or both--for truly immersive sound. These speakers will be virtually invisible to the eye but have a powerful sonic impact. Your integrator will create a plan that places speakers in such a way as to make certain all members of the audience are in the sweet spot.

Home Lighting Design Equals Style and Warmth


When designing your home, you select each piece of furniture and art with immense care. After you’ve taken the time to design style scheme that fits your lifestyle and preferences, develop a lighting plan that will set your home off to its best advantage. This step is often forgotten by homeowners, but it can make all the difference. The lighting scheme can affect how colors look and work together, create a mood for the room, and draw attention to your favorite features. Automated lighting, like from Lutron, can help create this environment. Working with a professional Lutron dealer and installer will ensure that these effects are not overlooked in your Florida home. Read on to learn more about the design possibilities. 

Highlight Your Home

If you think that light patterns don’t affect the way things appear, then talk to a photographer. Illumination has the power to highlight the areas of your home that you want noticed. For instance, if you have a new piece of artwork for your collection, you can design a lighting pattern that will draw the eye right to it. The addition of dimmers also helps to create your ideal mood at any given time. Create a low light setting to create a romantic feel for your next party, and thereby establish a perfect space for intimate conversation. Also, integrating motorized shades with your lights provides you the ultimate control over your home’s brightness.

The secret is to work with the angles and natural light cycles the room undergoes. A professional installation includes an assessment phase. We will examine the area, develop a plan and complete the installation to your home. All you have to do is enjoy the results.

Color Temperature

An important factor in selecting your lightbulbs is the type of light they emit. Different types of light bulbs can project warmer toned light or cooler light. The warm and cool distinction is based on the color scale: warm light is on the hot end, like reds, oranges, and yellows, while cool is related to the blue side. The temperature of the light can impact the ways your wall colors or your fabric choices appear. In addition, many people have strong preferences in terms of how light affects their eyes and brain. One person finds blue light offensive, while another finds it energizing.
