Extraordinary Feature of the Day | Home Theaters & Media Rooms

Extraordinary Feature of the Day | Home Theaters & Media Rooms

Media Rooms and Home Theaters are rooms that are similar in purpose but not necessarily in design. A home theater is built to recreate a true cinematic experience. Screening equipment, ambient lighting, acoustics and strategic seating are all components of a well planned and thought out home theater. The desire to recreate an authentic movie viewing experience is in the designation and details of the room.

A media room may have many or some of the components of a home theater, but generally the room is designed for a more multi-purpose use. Details may still include surround sound and designated seating but instead of viewing screens, an oversize television is used.  Also, the use of tables and chairs may be incorporated instead of actual theater seating.

Whether it is a Home Theater or Media Room, these spaces are ideal for watching block buster movies, your favorite childhood memories or the big game that only happens once a year. Here are some of our favorites!


This home theater ticks all the boxes. From raised seating to acoustic panels, this home theater is set up for the perfect movie night!

The kitchen really is the castle itself. This is where we spend our happiest moments and where we find the joy of being a family.  ~Mario Batali
