Furnishing the Space

Any bare, unfurnished room is essentially just an echo chamber.

But changing that is simple: Just add furniture.

From the big, plush, customized theater seating installed in your home theater to the carpeting that runs along the floor, your room won’t reflect sound, but rather absorb it, so your audio sounds great.

Of course, sometimes that’s not enough.

Home theaters are often placed in unused rooms, like basements or dens.

That means you may have to deal with a bit of unusual architecture or other features that may reflect more sound.

In those cases, adding acoustic treatments to the walls will help.

Acoustic treatments are upholstered panels that hang on walls to help absorb more sound than just furniture will do alone.

But after adding these features strategically, your room will sound better.


Avoiding Sound Bleed

When sound “bleeds,” it filters into other rooms and disturbs the rest of the family.

But your movies and other content are often meant to be watched loudly.

If your walls are too thin, you may want to consider soundproofing your space.

Soundproofing helps keep audio within a space.

There are a lot of techniques involved with soundproofing, from lining the walls with absorbent material to minimizing rattling at joints throughout the space.

But the most effective way of soundproofing your space is through decoupling.

When a room is “decoupled,” your integrator essentially builds a slightly smaller room within the room.

The inner walls cannot touch the outer walls at any point to minimize vibrations that can be heard in the neighboring rooms.

That way, you can listen as loud as you want without disturbing anyone else.
