What Makes a Home Theater Design Exceptional?

Create a Home Entertainment Masterpiece in Any Room

Your home should be a place to relax, a retreat from the outside world. At Domes Audio Video, we create such a space, an environment that takes your cares away while bringing family and friends together. While many achieve this through home automation, one indoor oasis stands out from the rest—a home theater. 

These home entertainment masterpieces are found in nearly every type of room and come in various aesthetics, from laid back and relaxing to elegant and old-world charm. Their commonality is state-of-the-art technology that delivers stunning images and impressive surround sound, on par with the commercial cinemas in Virginia Beach, VA. 

Let’s explore what goes into a home theater design and how rooms throughout Chesapeake and the Coastal Virginia area transform into ultimate home theaters.

Designing a Home Theater

Many factors go into the design of a home theater, from color and fabrics to acoustic paneling, lighting, seating, décor, and the all-important images and sound. These selections combine to create that unique, one-of-a-kind cinema designed with your tastes and lifestyle in mind.

One of the first considerations is your vision and how you want to use this space. Do you see rows of tiered, plush seating and a wall-sized screen? These dedicated home theaters are designed for the ultimate movie-watching experience that’s so real you transcend reality for a moment. 

Then, there are entertainment spaces known as media rooms. These are areas designed for socializing, from hosting parties to game nights with the family and gathering with friends for the big sporting events. Hushed tones give way to exuberant cheers, and tiered seating is replaced by sectionals, chaise lounges, separate seating areas, and even bars. 

While you still enjoy incredible images and sound, the technology to make it happen is often hidden, creating a space accommodating every activity. Then, when it’s time to watch a movie, the big game, or a series, you tap a button, and the equipment appears. 

Engineering a Home Theater

In addition to selecting and installing the audio-video equipment best suited for the room, our expert team considers sightlines, ensuring the optimum view from every seat. Speaker placement and calibration are critical when delivering Dolby Atmos, today’s standard home theater audio. This system requires in-ceiling and surrounding speakers to provide an immersive 3D audio experience.

Lifelike images emerge from 4K native laser projectors, ultra-short-throw projectors tucked in media cabinets, or one of the latest OLED TVs. Dedicated home theaters benefit from the bigger-than-life movie screen that engulfs the viewer, taking them to another place in time.
