What Are Some Ways to Enhance Your Home Theater Design?

Creating a Movie-Watching Experience That Is Uniquely Yours

What Are Some Ways to Enhance Your Home Theater Design?

Your home theater is only going to be as good as the equipment in it. Which is why a big focus of your installation will be on finding the right speakers, screens, and projectors. But a lot more than that goes into crafting a comprehensive home theater design. Check out some features you should consider when upgrading the entertainment in your Winnetka, Illinois home.

Enhance Your Style With Hidden Technology

When you’re purchasing equipment, focus not just on its performance but also how it will fit into your overall design. Most AV manufacturers offer ‘hidden technology’ options that provide a discreet approach to your home theater. This way you can show off your style without losing any of the quality.

When it comes to your speakers, you can go with KEF in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Get all the benefits of a Dolby Atmos surround sound setup while keeping your equipment hidden. Your screen is also easy to conceal. If you don't want it to be seen when your theater is not in use, invest in a retractable screen that disappears into the ceiling at the press of a button.

Enhance Your Content With Kaleidescape

You’re going to need easy access to high-quality content in your theater. We recommend going with a Kaleidescape media server that lets you upload your Blu-ray collection and download movies from its online library, which offers the largest selection of 4K Ultra HD titles.

Kaleidescape also makes it easy for you to find what you want. Browse your collection by title, actors, genres or even Rotten Tomato ratings. When you choose a movie, your Kaleidescape library surrounds it with similar titles, so it's easy to jump into a full-day marathon.

Enhance Your Comfort With Pallister

With a home theater design that will make you want to watch movies for hours, you want to ensure you're comfortable. We partner with Pallister to offer a variety of home theater seating options for your family. All models come in multiple colors so you can find one that fits your style.

While each recliner comes with LED cupholders and power recline capabilities, the company also offers additional accessories to fit your family’s needs. You can add a tablet holder, removable trays and even a wireless bass shaker that lets you feel the sound in the room.

Enhance the Scene With Smart Control

That tablet holder will come in handy if you incorporate your theater into your smart home automation. From a tablet, you can control all the technology in the room to create the perfect movie-watching experience. When it's time to start the movie you can dim the lights, close the shades, turn down the thermostat and hit play all from the same central location.
