Step 1: Set Your Budget

Before you begin any smart home project, it’s essential to figure out what your budget is and just how extensive the build will be. With a home theater, it all depends on what you want in it, how it will look, and the size of the designated space. It is also important whether you’ll be building a whole new room or upgrading an existing space.

Once you’ve determined the area’s sizing and what its theme and design will be, you can plan and manage your budget. We can work with you to find the right choices that best fit your needs and desires. You might want a larger screen or prefer comfy seating over standing loudspeakers. Which elements you choose to elevate or compromise on will decide your finalized budget and our team can then get to work on making it all a reality for you.

Step 2: Choose the Right Equipment

Do you want a 4K screen or projector? In-ceiling and in-wall audio equipment, or standing loudspeakers? Or what about a traditional cinematic setup, or a theme based off your favorite film franchise?

And these questions don’t even begin to cover which audio video brands and products would be the ideal choices for your theater. As experts in this industry, we can recommend which solutions are the right picks for your theater size and setup. We also know which brands and companies to trust and which are reliable and durable for the years to come.

With our committed team on your side, you won’t have to second-guess your equipment and product choices for your cinema design.

Step 3: Building the Foundation

Installing the foundation of your theater, most likely when it’s a new build, can be a huge undertaking – but not with our professional integrators on the job. This step requires the installing of necessary wiring and cabling and putting in carpeting that won’t disturb acoustics.

Internal wiring and construction and any high-end sound-proofing and paneling in the walls to prevent audio from leaking over from one room to the next are all done at this stage. With the basics laid out, you’ll have a cinematic space that’s ready for the next-to-last step.

Step 4: Interior Design and Acoustic Treatments

With the wiring infrastructure in place, your theater is ready for audio video equipment and installations, and other interior design factors such as seating, screen and speaker placement, and acoustic paneling.

These panels and treatments can help absorb sound and balance out its distribution in your theater space, eliminating echoing or audio distortion. After every AV product is installed, you’ll be left with a home cinema that delivers a top-quality performance at all times.

Step 5: Test it Out

But to see if your home theater performs as it should, the last but critical step in the process is for your builders to test out your system – from the AV components to the dimming of the lights.

You’ll be able to sit in the theater and test how comfortable it is, how the media appears, and how you feel about it as a whole. We’ll make sure to meet your every need and guarantee that the theater you dreamed of is now yours.
