Home Theaters: What To Know Before You Start Your Design

Having a home theater is a dream for many homeowners. We at Strand Security will be happy to help you make that dream come true. Home theaters come in all shapes, sies and fit within many budgets.

It’s important to note and answer the following questions.

  1. Are starting from scratch or do you already have a sound system installation?
  2. Is this a new build (home) or would your home theater be installed in an existing home?
  3. What is your budget for the complete project?
  4. What features in a home theater are MOST important to you (audio, visual, spae, comfort)
  5. How soon do you want this project to be completed?
  6. Do you have examples of what you like and do not like?

How to Find a Reputable Home Theater Installer

Once you know what you want and can afford, it’s time to start asking around for referrals.

If you have friends with home theaters, a nice surround sound system, or if you know of a business with an awesome system, ask them who did the work! Chances are you are going to be most happy and comfortable with a direct referral!

Next, search for and read online reviews.

We highly recommend you use Google to your advantage and read a much as you can about the (local) businesses you want to hire for your home theaters installation. Not all companies are created equal…

The Initial Home Theater Consult: Ask Questions

Once you’ve chosen one or two installers to work with, you will want to set up an initial consult to find out more about them! Ask questions like:

  • How long do you expect this project to take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What brands do you recommend?
  • How many people will work on this project?
  • How may home theater installations have you done?
  • Can I see pictures of finished home theater installs you’ve completed?
  • What am I missing – in other words – what else can I add to make this home theater great?

How To Get the Most for Your Ideal Home Theater Price

Are You In The Market for a Home Theater?

Are you contemplating adding a home theater to your existing home, or are you building a home and want to have a home theater?

The first thing to do when looking for ideas is to do some in-person and online research.

We recommend sites like Pinterest and Houzz to get some ideas.

Before you can do your research though, about what is available, you need to know two things.

The first thing you need to do is set a budget.

Decide Where You Want To Install Your Home Theater

If you are contemplating adding a home theater to an existing home, you might need to get a contractor in to help you decide what is possible, especially if you are repurposing a previously unused space like a garage or unfinished attic.

However, if you are building a home, it is much easier to work with the current builder to get a room marked for home theater use – and add all the wiring during the building process!

This will save you money, for sure.

We at Strand Security help homeowners and builders with this often!

Feel free to reach out to us today!

What Do You Want to Do In Your Home Theater?

Of course, it is important to know what functionality your home theater has to have!

?Are you looking to entertain with music, maybe watch rock concerts and movies? You need the best audio system to enhance your viewing pleasure.

?Do you want to record your own music?

?Will you want to prepare and serve food and beverages in the home theater?

?How many people do you want to invite into your home theater? Will it be a small theater room or does it need to be large enough for a big crowd?

♟Do you need tables for board games, a jukebox, or room for darts?

What Equipment Do You Already Own to Put into a Home Theater?

You might already have an audio system, like our popular Sonos speakers.

If you have furniture that can be repurposed, that’s a great start.

Do you have a large TV that you want to relocate to the home theater? That will shave off some money of your overall ideal home theater price!

You will need to take a look at seating possibilities, table space, wall space and more.

What can I Expect To Pay; What is an Average Home Theater Price?

There is really no ‘average’ price!

You could get a room set up for as little as $500 if you have some of the components and equipment already.

Some people spend $10,000 or even $30,000 for a home theater. They might have a large, expensive home (read: mansion) and spending that much would make no sense for a cheaper home. While adding a home theater adds resale value to a home, you should by no means over-spend!

We can’t look in your wallet, so it is important for you to decide what you want to spend.

What do you think a fair home theater price is for your home?

How To Get the Most Bang for Your Buck and The Best Home Theater Price

  1. Make decisions about your future home theater before talking to a professional
  2. Ask for Professional help! Don’t go it alone, but hire someone who knows what they are doing!
  3. Home theaters are a great selling point if you ever need to sell your home. They made a solid investment.
  4. Consider adding a home theater to a new home you are building. It’s much cheaper doing this during construction.
