Are Home Theaters Worth It?
What are the advantages of a home theater? Some things that come to mind include not spending money on gas to go to a cinema theater, being able to exchange overpriced snacks with those from Costco, watching a movie in luxury without having to leave home, and being able to feel so comfortable in the theater that I could fall asleep there! From this list alone, are home theaters worth it? Absolutely.
Below you’ll find the top three reasons (more thought out) why a home theater is worth it.
One of the best reasons a home theater is “worth it” is that you are in complete control! You decide how much money and time you’d like to spend on your theater. You get to command the design. You are the one who decides the fate of your home theater. How great is that?
The less time and money you put into it, the less “luxury” it will be, but you’re the one calling the shots. On the other side of things, the more time and money spent on your home theater, the more automated, luxury, and in detail (of your envisioned design) your theater will be. It’s all up to personal preference.
Most people opt to have an entire room set apart from the rest of the house to be used as a theater room. These rooms usually include the basement, an office, the garage, a spare guest room, or even a separate cottage outside of the home on property. Today, it’s slowly becoming popular for people to make the most of their space.
Being able to use a single room as a multi-functional room frees up space and is perfect for the typical minimalist. Take a master bedroom for example. Want to watch a movie in bed with perfect surround sound and a built-in snack bar? Press “theater mode” on your control panel or smart device and watch it transform from a high lit bedroom to moody cinema in 5 seconds.
By utilizing automation, there are a million creative ways to change any room into a theater room with the touch of a button. Watch the flat screen or projector lower from the ceiling while the lights dim and the shades close. It’s the best option for those who don’t have an extra room lying around.
Home Value Increase
Of course there are several other ways to add value to your home, but that doesn’t exclude home theaters as being one. Installing a home theater automatically increases your home value. According to DIY Smart home Solutions, the value of your home can be raised from 5% to 35% by installing home automations. Home theaters alone have been making home owners want to remodel their extra rooms into stunning theaters as an investment for a future sale.
Hopefully our top three reasons have explained the bulk of why installing a home theater system is well worth the time and expenses. Let We Are More know of all your home theater needs, including design assist, automated products, and installation.
