Minneapolis Home Theater Design & Installation
One of the latest trends in high-end home remodeling and design is a professionally designed and installed home theater. Many of the Minneapolis clients we do this for at Titus Contracting need these to be built from the ground up, while others have the ability to have an existing entertainment area or basement into a one-of-a-kind theater room.
We get asked how prices are determined for projects like these. You might have a budget in mind, but a custom home theater design and installation can range in price, and there are several factors that determine a final figure:
Home Theater Seating
Home theaters are about close entertainment and comfort, and how everything works regarding placement, comfort and type of seating. High back chairs can obscure the screen’s view, but it’s important to calculate the size and number of seats as these will have an effect on any estimate given.
Home Theater Screens
Serious thought will need to be given to the size and placement of the screen. It should be big enough to be easily seen, but not too big or else the audience risks having to strain their neck to see what’s going on.
Picture and Sound Source
The most common source these days for high-end home theaters is Blu-Ray players, as they are able to play both DVDs and Blu-Ray discs. Some theaters are set up to include HD cable or satellite so sports and other television shows can be enjoyed in the theater.
Home Theater Speakers
Sound can be approached a number of different ways in Minneapolis home theaters. Typical designs include a surround system, where three speakers are placed in the front and two in the back. The size, style and placement of the speakers will impact your budget and will need to be just right in order to give you the theater of your dreams.
