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.
