Designing the Perfect Home Theater for Football Season
This Year, Cheer on Your Georgia Team in Style
Sports fans rejoice! Football season is almost here and you’re in for a memorable season. But the one thing that would make it even more perfect is watching the game in the comfort of your very own Georgia home theater. As the season draws near, it’s time to start planning how you’re going to catch every second of the game. In this blog, we’ll take you through some of the smartest solutions for upgrading your system with smart AV. Read on for more.
Choose an Aesthetic
Ok, so you know you want a man cave, but you don’t know how you want it to look. Well, that’s perfectly fine, but you’re going to want to get an idea before your designer breaks ground. Whether you want a warm and cozy den, or the ultimate sports bar feel, you just have to keep in mind that the materials and textures you use will ultimately affect the way your AV gear looks and sounds.
For instance, you can integrate rocky textured walls for a nice, modernist throwback facade, but that may disperse your audio more than you would prefer. On the other hand, you can choose a sleek, metallic sheen for the walls, but the flat, reflective surfaces could bounce sound and light right back at you.
No design is insurmountable, but it’s always best to get in on the ground floor when choosing a look and feel for your room, so you don’t have problems down the road.
How Will You Use It?
As you define how you want your man cave to look, you also have to consider how you will use it. Will you want a single, giant projector-and-screen combo so you can easily transition to movie nights whenever a game isn’t on? Or are you the ultimate football fanatic who wants multiple displays playing every game? Important considerations indeed.
Take this, for example: you want to watch the Atlanta game on the main monitor, stream the Seattle game on a different set and knock your buddies around in Madden while you do it. You already know that comfortable theater seating will offer the most versatility and best quality experience, but how do you negotiate the two competing interests: fixed seating and multiple displays?
One solution may be rotating seats, or putting the chairs on a platform that turns to face the appropriate direction. You won’t have to move yourself from the area of your room perfectly calibrated to your Dolby Atmos surround sound, but you’ll have a full 360-degree view of the space.
Remember, there are a lot of factors that go into designing the perfect home theater, and not all of them have to do with the way it looks. Contact us today if you have questions about integrating the ideal man cave into your spaces.
