When you begin building your dream home you should think about how you want to incorporate a home theater in your design. AÂ home theater system is a combination of electronic components designed to recreate the experience of watching a movie in a theater. Â Before you begin selecting a home theater system, youâ€™ll need to decide what room you want to designate as the home theater and how far you want to go. Turning a family room or flexible space into a media/TV room is a lot different than creating a fully functional home theater.Â
â€¨Once youâ€™ve decided “how much” home entertainment you want, you can begin to select the necessary components to create your home theater. Whether you are planning on spending $500 or $50,000 you should spend time understanding what each component does, so you can purchase the right equipment to fulfill your audio and visual needs.Â Learn how to design a home theater in the latest issue of Home Ideas.
