Building a custom home theater is a great way to create a designated space for watching movies, sports, and other media in a comfortable environment that’s equipped with the best audio-visual gear. But beyond just the cushy chairs or the big movie screen, there are several important benefits to adding a theater to your home.

In this post, we explore the advantages of designing a custom home theater with help from our experts at AVDG and how it can transform your living space.

1) create an immersive viewing experience.

When properly designed and built, a custom home theater creates a viewing and listening experience like no other. It allows you to be fully immersed in your favorite movies, music, shows, and sporting events in a way that’s simply not possible with a traditional living-room TV setup. 

Expansive HD video displays or projectors deliver crystal-clear video, vibrant colors, and details that are so vivid, you feel like you’re part of the action. Premium speakers, discreetly installed into the walls and ceiling, deliver an unparalleled surround-sound experience. Combine that with proper room acoustics and plush seating in a design that matches your desired aesthetic, and you have an extraordinary, cinema-quality environment in the comfort of your own home.

The experience created by these high-end audio-visual systems cannot be understated. A conventional TV or store-bought stereo system simply does not compare. At AVDG, we build custom home theaters with premium audio and video solutions that bring movies and music to life in ways you may never have experienced before. 

2) customize the space to your liking.

When you partner with AVDG, your home theater is fully customized to fit your unique vision, space, and desired aesthetic. This is an important advantage, because it means you maintain control over the project.

When building a home theater, you should never be stuck with a cookie-cutter design. This will leave you with a space that is not as comfortable, inviting, or attractive as you might hope. Additionally, the style of the room could end up being drastically different from the rest of your home. 

Designing a truly custom home cinema allows you to create a space that is truly yours – one that you are proud of and enjoy showing to friends and guests. 

3) rethink family movie night.

Your home theater is likely to become your favorite spot for getting together and spending time with family. Whether it’s an intimate date night with your partner or a movie night with the whole family, your home theater will be a destination for relaxation and entertainment.

This is a valuable benefit at a time when families are increasingly splintered by their busy schedules and their personal devices. Creating a designated space for movies makes it easier and more inviting to get together as a family. Unlike the living room or a conventional family room, a home theater is a space with purpose: it invites you to spend quality time with loved ones, doing something everyone enjoys: watching a movie, cheering on your favorite sports teams, or even just watching TV together.

If you’ve been looking for a way to bring your family together, a custom home theater is an excellent choice. 

4) “go to the movies” without leaving home.

Movie lovers know there’s something special about watching a film at the local movie theater. But let’s face it – it’s not always a great experience. 

So many variables affect whether your movie-going experience will be enjoyable: how crowded the theater is, how noisy it is, whether you have to sit next to strangers, or even just the attitude of the person behind the ticket window. Plus, at a time when we’re still dealing with a global pandemic, you may not always feel up to congregating in a large public space with other people. 

Building a custom home theater brings the movie-going experience to you. And when you partner with AVDG, you don’t have to worry about compromising on the audio-video experience by not going to a traditional theater. Our AV solutions deliver a cinema-quality experience that may even surpass the technology used by your local cinema!

5) increase your home’s value. 

The most valuable benefits of building a home theater are related to your enjoyment of the space. But if you’re interested in monetary value too, then you’ll appreciate knowing that home theaters can also increase the value of your home.

A well installed home theater can increase your home’s value by as much as 72% of the cost of the system, according to some figures. Typically, the increase in value is greater when you’re installing the theater in a previously unused space, such as an unfinished basement or an attic. In these scenarios, the theater adds more functional space to the home, while also adding an attractive perk for buyers.
