5 Creative Home Theater Design Concepts


There’s no need to go to the town cinema when your own home theater will do the trick – and with much more luxury and immersion! Picking a top-notch 4K TV screen or projector and installing controlled lighting makes your theater fit specifically for you.  But what gives it the certain element of style that draws everyone in and has them set to watch a movie, just as if they were in a commercial cinema?  Deciding upon a theme for your theater is key to completing the feel and aesthetic you want for you and your guests.

We’ve listed out below five home theater designs that will bring life and character to your Buckhead, GA theater.

Nature’s Style
You might consider yourself an “outdoorsy” person, or find yourself enjoying more time spent outside engaging with the wilderness.   Either way, spending time watching movies may be what you want, but it leaves you longing for nature.  Bring the feel of the outdoors into your home by incorporating it into your theater’s style.  Install a “starry night” ceiling by hanging twinkling lights above you and your guests that gives the feel that you are outside stargazing.  With faux trees, grass carpeting, and speakers disguised as rocks, you can truly make your theater feel like nature has invaded the premises for good.

Top 5 Home Theater Trends for 2017


Georgia’s Top Home Theater Store Gives a Sneak Peak of What’s to Come

If there’s one thing that’s constant in this world, it’s change. 2017 is going to see a lot of great advances in home theater technologies—are you planning on taking advantage of them? Before you head over to your local Alpharetta-Milton home theater store, take a look at our predictions for next year's biggest home theater trends.

1. 4K Displays

Still stuck using a regular HD display for your theater system? By the end of 2017, you’ll be hard pressed to find a television for sale that isn’t 4K Ultra HD. These upgraded displays boast four times the number of pixels, and now that they’ve entered mainstream adoption, they’re really quite affordable. Whether you want a regular television or a traditional projector and screen, if you’re planning on investing in a home theater, 4K is a must-have.

2. Full Automation

The cinema experience isn’t complete without the feeling of just sitting down and having the theater come to life in front of you. That’s possible with smart home automation. With automation, all of the elements in the theater room are connected into one easily manageable system. You never have to go through the manual effort of turning on the projector, lowering the screen, turning off the lights, closing the window shades, and so forth. Instead, just sit down, press the “Movie” button, and the rest happens automatically.
