Hint: You Have To Get Control of the Light

To get the most out of a home theater or media room, you need to get a lot of details right. It’s not just about the speakers. It’s not just about the AV receiver and amplifiers. It's not just about the seating and the décor. It's not all about the projector and the size of the screen. Yes, all those things are essential and important, but other details are sometimes overlooked, and failure to address them can lead to a subpar experience no matter how much you spend on the aforementioned areas.
What are we talking about? It’s taking control of the light. Just as a light shining in the wrong area, a screen with a reflection, or a dim picture would ruin a movie experience in a commercial theater, it can also happen in yours. Moreover, you don't always have the luxury of designing a room specifically for a home theater, so you will need to contend with windows and lighting as the room may have other uses.
The good news is that with the right attention to detail, in the choice of lighting, screens, projectors, colors, and materials, you can optimize your Plano home theater installation, even if the room isn’t optimal. Read on to see how the right choices can help you master the light in your home theater.

Here in Dallas, we can be chilly in the winter and quite hot in the summer. On a cold but brilliantly sunny winter day, you might just want the sun to shine through all day. In the height of the Texas summer in August, you might want to keep those shades down and keep the load off on the air conditioning system – at least until sunset. If the day varies, you might want to adjust accordingly – on an overcast day, open it up to get as much natural light as you can, or just enjoy the rain if that's what's on tap for the weather.
It used to be that to get automated window treatments that you could open and close at a touch of a button, you’d have to invest in a very customized solution. Even then, you might have been limited in style choices for your home. Fortunately, those days are in the past. Today’s motorized smart shading solutions offer a wide array of styles to fit almost any décor.
Lutron is a company we partner with for lighting control systems, and they are well known for their solutions in that space. What some people don’t associate Lutron with is shading. As a company, Lutron is devoted to the management of light, both natural and artificial, in both residential and commercial settings. The company has significantly expanded its shading offerings in the past several years and has a variety of solutions that are an excellent fit for most homes.
If you thought motorized shades might be a great addition to your Dallas home - but didn’t think they would fit your style – it’s time to take a closer look at Lutron shade solutions.
