Choosing which room you want to dedicate for your Dream Theatre can be a decision that involves multiple factors;
Location: If you plan on regular usage of the home theatre for movies and loud music, it would be a good idea to plan it in a part of your house away from rooms where you need peace and quiet (say, your bedrooms or office/working area). Although good insulation and acoustics can all but negate most sounds emanating from the theatre, we still recommend not having common walls between your home theatre and any other room.If you’re in the pre-construction stage you could devote a small standalone room in a different floor just for the home theatre, but if you have just one floor don’t worry; we can help select the most appropriate room in the space available
Shape and Size: The best option for a Home theatre is to have a rectangular room, but if the layout of your room is slightly different (or there are pillars in between or walls jutting out), we can plan the design according to the specs of your room. A space as little as 14 (length) * 8 (width) feet can be sufficient to install a good Home theatre, but if you’re going for one anyways, we’d recommend about 20 * 12/14 for a wholesome experience. Lesser the windows in your room, the lower the sound distortion
Recommended viewing and seating distances: With a 120 inch display, you need make sure you’re optimally seated to ensure you head isn’t bobbing sideways (or worse up and down) to catch all the action on the big screen. The optimal viewing angle is estimated at between 30-40 degrees, so all seats/couches in your home theatre need to be contained in these angles. The distance at which the visual experience works best is estimated at 1.5-2 times the diagonal screen width (which is to say that if you have a 96 inch (8 feet) screen, you’re recliners or chairs need to be about 12-14 feet away from the screen)
