You do not need to designate a special room for your home theater installation. If your favorite room in the house is your family room, and that is where you want your television to be, then you can complete your TV installation in your family room. It need not be complicated; start with a flat television set to hang over your fireplace. Choosing this spot means you can enjoy a fire in the fireplace at the same time you are enjoying your movie.
The next step in your home theater installation is installing your speakers. Installation experts, like Houston Custom Installers, will be able to help you choose the best places for your speakers and install them so that all wires and cords are hidden. Your home theater installation professionals can also place your lighting on your control panel as well, so that with the touch of a button, you can start your movie and dim your lights.
If you are using your family room, you will need to be prepared for when you do not want to watch a movie or when not everyone in the room will want to watch a movie. Furnish it accordingly. Include in your TV installation plan comfortable chairs that can all swivel to watch television together, or can turn to face one another for an evening chat or a card game. Include a billiards table or a small dining table and chairs if there is room. In fact, a truly advanced home theater installation will allow you to open and close your drapes with your control panel as well.
