Let’s face it, not everyone wants or has a dedicated room for a home theater. And the truth is, home theaters are no longer only an extravagance for the rich. Today, thanks to technology, many families are enjoying a true movie theater experience from the comfort of their family room. In fact, it is easy to create an immersive, yet tasteful home entertainment room for your family to match your lifestyle and your budget.
But, transforming your family room, is more than just slapping a flat screen TV on the wall and calling it a day. You need the right system, sound, picture, and control to make family movie time the best time. With the right planning, investing in a home theater system can be one of the best enhancements to your lifestyle. Just think, with a family room home theater you will be able to relax after a stressful day. With this in mind, we offer you some insight on how to build a home theater.
Turn Your Family Room Into A Place For Entertainment With Sound That Fills Every Dimension Of The Room…
Optimize Your Environment
One of the most important factors in your family room’s performance is actually the room itself. In terms of surfaces, materials like tile and hardwood are not ideal because they bounce sound around the room. That being said, if hard surfaces are unavoidable, you can always temper reflective materials with rugs, pillows and even acoustic treatments. Next you’ll want to examine that amount of natural light and artificial light in the room. That’s because natural light can be controlled with window treatments like motorized shades, and your lights can easily be dimmed with lighting control.
One-Room Entertainment Experience
Whether it’s to watch a movie, listen to music, or have friends over for the big game, the environment where you consume your entertainment should be relaxing, inviting, and free of technology chaos. With the Control4 SR-260 Remote and an EA Series Controller, get rid of all the remotes cluttering the coffee table and replace them with a universal remote solution that has the brains to control more than just your entertainment such as the shades, temperature, door locks, and more. A Control4 one-room entertainment solution is the perfect starting point for your smart home. Enjoy a simplified one-room entertainment experience that consolidates all AV equipment into one remote that the whole family can use with ease.

The Control4 SR-260 remote is so intuitive that the whole family from kids to grandparents will be able to operate it quickly and easily.
Get The Perfect Picture
The centerpiece of any well-designed home theater system is the video display. While the environment plays a key role in selecting the right type of display, technology today is far better than it has ever been. From OLED TVs to the latest UHD or 4K TVs, today you can treat yourself to the best of both worlds by adding drop down screen and projector. But, beware, not just any movie screen and projector will do! While OLED the latest in display tech is thinner, brighter and more energy efficient, there is nothing that compares to watching a movie with your family than watching it on a big screen! Just think, you can take the impressive visual quality of 4K technology to its limit with a two-piece projection system. With a projector by JVC and a projector screen by Screen Innovations.

50% Of The Cinema Experience
Audio accounts for 50 percent of the cinema experience. That’s why your sound system and room acoustics are every bit as important as your display or screen. There are two basic ways to add the height channels. One is to use two or four in-ceiling speakers. The second way is to use special Dolby Atmos enabled speakers that can be floor or stand mounted. From a placement perspective, these replace the left and right speakers and the left and right surround speakers. For the experience of moving audio that flows around you, Atlantic Technology Dolby Atmos enabled speakers are powerful and immersive. Beyond performance, their speakers integrate easily and attractively into your home to deliver consistently great movie sound and music reproduction.
