The world of home entertainment is changing rapidly, and consumers have a wide range of options. HOME THEATER DESIGN will guide readers through all the aspects of creating a beautiful and comfortable home that elegantly takes advantage of media-related emerging technologies and furnishings.
Starting with a “whole interior” approach to home entertaining, HOME THEATER DESIGN guides readers step by step through an examination of current technology, space planning, acoustics, functionality, lifestyle, and overall aesthetics with the goal of planning and designing an entertainment system that’s suits each individual personality or family.
HOME THEATER DESIGN goes miles beyond just the technicalities of home theater design, taking the reader through a variety of design considerations, all factoring in style, functionality, new technology, acoustic planning, soundproofing, lighting, and environmental and health considerations. From small urban apartments to spacious, multipurpose living areas to full-blown dedicated theater spaces, all types of spaces are addressed.
