10 Things to Avoid When Building Your Home Theater

Movie nights are the best nights. With advances in technology, you can enjoy a cinematic experience in the comfort of your own home theater.

Here are ten common mistakes to avoid when building your home theater.

Don’t forget to do your research. Read customer reviews and Consumer Reports. Compare home theater products before you buy.

Don’t pick the wrong room. Not all rooms are built equally when it comes to housing your home theater. Pick a room without windows that’s square or rectangular.

Don’t mount your screen too high. Keep your television lower than eight feet when mounting it. This will ensure that no one strains their neck while watching!

Don’t place furniture too far away. Furniture should be 8-10 feet away from your screen for the ideal viewing experience.

Don’t skimp on speakers. Sound quality is as important as what you’re watching. Make sure to choose the speakers that best fit the size of your home theater.

Don’t hide the speakers. Make sure your speakers aren’t hidden by pieces of furniture. While it may be temping to cover them up for cleaner visual appeal, the sound will suffer.

Don’t forget a power conditioner.  A power conditioner will prevent potential interference caused by overloading your electrical system.

Don’t cut corners on connection. Prioritize audio and video installation to make sure you are using the right wiring and settings.

Don’t make things too complicated. Make sure you choose a system that everyone in your family can operate. Don’t let it get too confusing!

Don’t forget the snacks. Popcorn, candy, soda—it’s not a true movie night without them!
