Hiding Audiophile Acoustics In a Southern California Modern Home Theater
We’ve all seen AV rooms with gear jammed into racks with cables everywhere and acoustical treatments placed in ways that only a recording engineer could love. This is the makings of a divorce more than its the basis of great audio or home theater experience.

Many lessons can be learned from the HomeTheaterReview.com theater including how to keep a double rack cool with incoming cool air and exhaust fans.

Autumn Woods Theater
We received the following photos from Paul, who recently used HTmarket.com to equip Autumn Woods Apartments in Indiana with a theater of its own! This is really cool. As you can see, it has true stadium seating, floor lighting and sconces, and a ceiling-mounted projector. Take a look:
The seating shown is Contour Rocker Home Theater Seating. These classic row seats are wood with black laminate, and have woven fabric covering (the color of the seating shown is Navy).
The projector is an Epson Powerlite 8500UB Projector , mounted using an OmniMount Large Universal Ceiling Projector Mount. You can see the popcorn machine in this shot; it’s an Art Deco Popcorn Machine with matching pedestal.
The 16:9 Projector Screen is a Dalite Da-Snap model with Pro Trim and Cinema Vision material.
Home Theater Accessories
Home Theater Accessories
Whether you’re planning a new home theater or looking for a simple way to spice up an existing one, adding a home theater accessory is a simple addition that can have a big effect. Of course, the right screen, seating and home theater system are all critical components of a successful home theater. However, some well-chosen home theater accessories can transform a room from a place where movies are viewed to a genuine home theater with personality and style.
For example, home theater lighting is always a dramatic addition. While there are several styles of lamps and ceiling lights which are ideally suited to thematic home theater decor, you may wish to consider a type of lighting more suited to theaters in particular, such as LED rope lights or wall sconces. These will definitely get a reaction from guests, and will go a long way to making the room feel like a night out at the cinema.
Choosing a home theater carpet is another simple step you can take to completely transform the look and feel of a home theater. It’s easy to overlook when planning a home theater, but the right carpet can make a huge difference. HTmarket.com has a selection of made to order area and wall-to-wall carpets which were specifically designed for home theater use. Dedicated home theater carpet often features theatrical designs and colors, as well as a durability and pile that creates a world-class cinema feel at home.
Lastly, personal touches of theater decor should never be overlooked. Consider adding a movie poster frame or two, either inside the theater or just outside the entrance. These are a movie theater standard, and you can always change the posters inside to easily change up the home theater’s look! There are a range of other accessories available to decorate a home theater with, from marquee signs to drapes.
In the end, which home theater accessories you choose will depend on your theater’s style, layout and scope. However, regardless of what style you’re going for, when you accessorize your theater, it truly becomes something special to experience.
