Custom Home Theater Seating Is Essential for a True Cinematic Experience

They all seem amazing, and you already know which brands you like best. From our hundreds of past projects, we can tell you that when installed correctly, these systems look and sound just as you imagine!

Designing Your Theater Layout

When designing your next home theater, it is important to consider the limitations and opportunities inherent to your new place. Whereas smaller rooms are often better suited for TV screens, larger spaces may benefit from a projector and retractable screen. 

The seating layout is just as important. After all, depending on the location and size of the projector screen, a minimum distance to the front row seats must be kept. 

To achieve immersive surround sound, the positioning of speakers, subwoofers, and amplifiers also depends on the room and seating configurations. What do we mean by that? Take speakers as an example. Based on the position of your seating rows, a professional installer will layout and calibrate your speakers for an optimal acoustic performance. 

The Best Seat in the House 

Home theater seating comes in many shapes and sizes from the traditional leather recliners to plush lounge chairs. In your initial consultation we’ll find out what your viewing preferences are to help you find the seating option that makes the most sense.

Since these seats are designed for home theater use, they take special care to use fabrics that won’t affect your acoustic performance. Models come in various colors and fabrics so they also fit the style you have in mind for your theater. 

Many of the top brands for in-home theater seating include features such as built-in control panels that seamlessly integrate with leading automation platforms. As Platinum Savant integrators and brand ambassadors, that means we can program everything to be operated from the comfort of your armrest!
