Comparing a media room to a dedicated home theater room is going to come down to the difference in the use of the space. A home theater is a dedicated room for just that; a theater. A home theater room is designed and built from wall to wall and only has one purpose, which is to provide a movie theater experience all in the comfort of your home. A media room provides multimedia experiences such as watching TV, playing on game consoles, and other types of media. Homeowners choosing between a media room and a dedicated home theater room should consider the size of space that will be available in the home and long-term investment. Both are desired and can increase the value of the home, when installed properly.
Features of a dedicated home theater room will include a large projector screen, cinema style seating, sound proofing and full surround sound. It is best the dedicated theater room doesn’t have windows and is dark in setting. When coming up with the layout, the room should be designed around the seating area.
Another feature that will bring the theater room together will be the low lighting setting. Having low lighting in a dark room will give you the effect of a true cinema experience. Home theater features including sound proofing the dedicated room, home theater seating, surround sound, and LED lights taking your home theater to the next level.
You will find this type of room in an extra bedroom or basement. It may even be an addition to your home. If a homeowner is building an addition to accommodate their wants and needs for the theater room, then the company installing the home theater can have more freedom to make the most out of this theater room which benefits the homeowner long term.
A media room will be a different setting compared to a dedicated home theater room. You may see furniture such as over sized chairs, couches, gaming chairs and some decorations. This type of room would not be soundproof, but can include a surround sound system. Media rooms have other uses other than entertainment. Architecturally designed media rooms will hide projection screens so you are getting the most benefit in your space.
Media rooms are great for gatherings. If you find yourself hosting Thanksgiving or Christmas each year, make the most of it with a space dedicated for home entertainment. There are many activities that can be enjoyed in a media room. This can include watching movies on the projector, streaming movies, video games, music and more. Smart home automation technology can make it easy to integrate multiple components for even more enjoyment.
