Having a special room for enjoying your favorite movies, television, and entertainment is a dream for many homeowners. However, building the perfect home theater requires dedication, resources, and knowledge of how to enhance your home viewing experience. Here are a few things you should focus on to build your home theater the right way.



Natural light may be a good idea for your living room, but it can distract from your viewing experience in a home theater. Like a movie theater, you should aim for slightly dark (but not too dark) ambient lighting that draws your attention to the screen. Consider investing in multiple smaller lights to line your walls or ceiling. If you’ve chosen to place your home theater in a room with windows, you may also want to get some high-quality curtains.


One of the most crucial parts of a home theater system is getting the best video components. You can start with a 4K TV, a Blu-ray player, and a streaming device if your TV is not a smart television. If you enjoy playing games on a big screen, you may also want to add a current-gen game system to your home theater as well. If you’d prefer the complete movie theater experience, you can also buy an HD projector and a projector screen.


Perfect sound for your home theater is not something that comes naturally from your TV. You’ll have to invest in getting the best sound products such as speakers, soundbars, or a surround sound system. One oft-neglected aspect of home theater sound is acoustic treatment. For the clearest home theater sound, you’ll need sound proofing foam to eliminate excess echoes and reverberations for the most immersive audio experience. This might mean installing acoustic foam panels on all of your walls, and calculating room modes to understand where to place your foam panels.

The Foam Factory has a great collection of acoustic foam products for all your home theater needs. Buy acoustic foam panels for adding sound absorption to your walls and get some isolation wedges to eliminate auxiliary vibrations from your loudspeakers.
