How to Build a Home Theatre

In our previous blog post, we looked at 3 important reasons to hire a professional for your home theatre installation. The right expert can actually save you significant time and headache, helping you build a home theatre that suits your space and meets basic safety requirements. What is actually involved in the process of setting up a home theatre? How should you prepare for your work with a home installation expert?

Here are some helpful tips to get you started.

Step 1: Define your goals

  1. How often will you use your home theatre?
  2. How many people do you intend to use it?
  3. What kind of lighting and audio visual components do you see in your perfect home theatre?

All of these questions are part of the important first step of defining your goals for your home theatre. A home theatre expert will guide you through key questions for the space so that you have a clear idea of the end goal.

Step 2: Assess your budget

How much are you willing to spend on the overall project and which components are must‐haves versus nice‐to‐haves?

A good home theatre installation expert will help you set a realistic budget and provide a clear breakdown of expected costs up front for equipment, time and materials.

Step 3: Plan lighting, sound, and audio visual set‐up

How do you want your home theatre to look and function? This step in the process is actually a lot of fun, as you and your home theatre installation exert review all of the details that will make your home theatre a truly unique, state‐of‐the‐art space.

You can install automated lighting and sound systems, custom cabinetry to store your favourite old movies, and more. This stage can also involve developing tailored solutions for a room with an unusual or awkward layout, as seen in this video clip below:

Step 4: Install the customized home theatre

This is the implementation phase of your project as your home theatre expert manages the installation of all components of your home theatre, including mounting the TV or screen projection system, adding in appropriate low voltage wiring for data and sound, high voltage wiring (for lighting) and custom cabinetry for a sleek, organized home entertainment unit.

During this stage, the home theatre installation professional will coordinate a specialized team of electricians, carpenters, and other techs to install your system. 

Step 5: Review the upkeep process

Now that your home theatre has been expertly installed, you’ve got a brand new entertainment space to enjoy with friends and family. Before the project is complete, your home theatre installation expert will review all the details for operation and upkeep.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
