Adding A Home Theater to Your Custom Home

Home theaters are popular features for custom homes in Vancouver WA. Many home owners desire a dedicated space where they can watch movies.

It is recommended that your home theater be between 20’ x 13’ and 20’ x 15’. Of course, you can use part of a basement or a bedroom. It all depends on your floor plan.

Ideally, you’d like to place your home theater out of the way. You don’t want people cutting through your theater to get to the other side of your house.

After you’ve determined where your home theater is going, you’ll need to make sure it is lit well and is soundproofed. You’ll probably want recesses lighting on a dimmer and R30 insulation for the floors, ceiling, and walls.

Next, you’ll need to know what type of video and audio equipment you’re going to use. Do you want a television or a video projector? Typically, home theaters use 7.1 surround sound.

Make sure your builder, Tuscany Homes, knows what type of video and sound equipment you’re going to use so they can wire the room. You’ll want the room wired after its been framed but before the drywall is hung.
