Creating a Home Theater – Window Treatment – Santa Clarita CA
Creating a Home Theater by Kathy Morris – Designer
The most important aspect when Creating a Home Theater is the placement of the flat screen television. However the second on the list has to be properly covering the windows with appropriate hard or soft treatments that offer flexibility in light control. Sunlight reflecting through windows causes glare and affects the color image on televisions.
The options of shutters, blackout shades and lined draperies are all excellent choices for blocking out sunlight and providing a warm interior space for a rich picture on the television.
Since we are talking about lighting, make sure to address any room lighting with your existing lamps and overhead accessories. Too much close lighting will wash out the picture.
Finally, the placement of couches, chairs, furniture and accessories that allow a viewing angle for all in a comfortable setting.
A dedicated home theater room is a luxury that not a lot of people can afford. Some of the more upscale new construction homes are including dedicated home theater rooms in their design. If you are fortunate enough to be among those who are building a home with a dedicated room – be sure to get professional advice.
One last thing to consider adding to your budget is motorization. Wouldn’t it be nice to select one button on your remote control and dim the lights, operate your home theatre and close the window coverings?
