5 Details for Your Home Theater


Many homes are beginning to incorporate spaces that are perfect for kicking back and being entertained. Whether you call it a media room, entertainment room, or home theater - it's becoming very popular in modern homes. At John Elliott Interiors, we can help you create this room from top to bottom, and design a new space in your home that is loved by your entire family. Here are a few things to think about when creating a media room.

The Room

When choosing the perfect room for your home theater, it's important to realize that acoustics and light play a huge role. While you may have to choose a room with windows, it's ideal to find one without. Windows let in light which can reflect on your screen, and the hard surface causes the sound to bounce awkwardly through the room. If you can choose a room in your home (or build a room in your home) that is more rectangular shaped versus square, that can help with the sound waves.

The Walls

You don't have to install special walls in your space to help the acoustics, but there are a few things you can do to help improve them. If you have concrete walls, we highly recommend installing studs and drywall. Sound bounces off of concrete and will alter the sound in your space. You can help improve the sounds by having decorative drapes hung on the walls as well. When choosing a color for your space, you'll want to go as dark as possible, and stick to neutral tones instead of bright, bold colors, as those can affect the way colors appear on the screen.

The Floor

Carpeting is a great option for your media room. Not just because it's comfortable to lay on (especially if you'll have kids in the space a lot), but it can help with the acoustics. Our team at John Elliott Interiors can help you choose the best flooring for your space, and then work our way from the floor up to create your space.

The Screen & Sound

We have over fifteen key partners who can help assist in the creation and function of your space. This includes the audio-visual of your space. This room deserves the best, as you'll be enjoying many evenings here watching movies, TV shows, and more. Let our team, and our partners, assist you in choosing the best sounds systems, televisions, movie and streaming devices on the market for your home theater at the Lake of the Ozarks.

The Furniture

Finally, you'll want to make sure that your seating is comfortable enough that you can enjoy several hours at a time in this space. You'll also want to include places to set snacks and drinks - and maybe even designate a spot for a popcorn machine. At John Elliott Interiors, we won't miss a single detail in your space and can assist you in finding the PERFECT furniture for your home theater.

Be Entertained

Having a media room in your home is not just about creating a space, but about creating memories. From watching movies with your friends to your kids and grandkids -  this space will be a place that you can make memories with your loved ones and enjoy a good film in the process. At John Elliott Interiors, there is no job too small, or too complicated. We have partners who can help us create YOUR space from the floor up - and every detail will be included.
