The Hot Home Theater Design Trends for 2018

We love home theaters.  There’s nothing like settling in to watch a great movie on a large screen with incredible sound to match. But today’s home theaters are no longer rooms that are built to resemble commercial movie theaters.  Today’s homeowners are doing more than watching movies in their home theaters – they’re binge-watching Netflix shows, multiple NFL games on Sundays, and playing music videos as background in a media/game room. 

Home theater design is evolving to meet multiple entertainment purposes.
