What’s In Your Home Theater?
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. Of course, you can still build the completely enclosed, windowless theater in your walkout basement room complete with movie-themed décor and comfortable theater seating. But the theater can be in any room you want to make it, and today’s technology allows more flexibility than ever in designing the perfect home theater or media room. Take a look at five current trends in home theater design to make any room into a state-of-the-art entertainment oasis in Portland.
