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.
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!

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?
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.
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?
