This allows you to position seating, speakers,repparttar 110022 display and equipment inrepparttar 110023 best possible positions. Budget, however, will be your next consideration.

Lighting is also important. Too much light and you will be dealing with glare off of a screen or a washed out projection. Hang thick, heavy curtains of black or a drab color over any windows, and install a folding door over any doorways. Make sure any lighting in your home theater design is controllable so it can be turned off and on when needed.
