Building a home theater can be a wise option for entertaining family, friends and special guests. While devices such as DVD players may be important parts of the overall plan, home theater design specifications should include much more than equipment alone. The first consideration in home theater design is the actual room. In any case, the size of the room will determine the flexibility and the limitations of your home theater design. Naturally, the bigger the room the more you can do with it. The home theater room design should also identify where each component of the home theater system would be placed. Usually, almost all of the equipment will be placed against the main wall. Try to arrange the seating so that people can stand up go to the rest room, for instance, without being much of an obstruction to the screen. Furniture placement is also very important to your home theater room design. Where you place your entertainment stand, cabinets, and seats will affect the viewing experience in your home theater. Comfort is important in choosing furniture but so is the right size and shape. The pieces should fit the room and the overall home theater room design accordingly.
