Custom Home Theater for Man Cave

How to Turn a Room Into the Ultimate Man Cave

By | Home Theatre Systems, Man Caves, Surround Sound |

Have you always dreamed about putting a man cave into your house? It’s not as difficult as you might think. You can transform a spare bedroom, a portion of your basement, or any other empty room in your house into a man cave without a problem. You just need to fill it with all the things that make a man cave special.

Start by picking out the right seating

When you’re hanging out in your man cave, you want to be 100 percent relaxed. The best way to keep yourself and your guests comfortable is by picking out the right seating. You should find a big recliner for your man cave in addition to a sectional that will fit you and all your family and friends on movie nights and big games.

Add a custom home theater

Once you have your seating in place, it’ll be time to give yourself something to watch while you’re sitting down. Rather than simply purchasing a flat-screen TV for your new space, you should add a custom home theater to it. You can customize your home theater setup and pick out the right size screen for your specific space.

Fill your man cave with sound with a surround sound system

No custom home theater is complete without a surround sound system. So that’ll be the next thing you want to buy for your man cave. You can use it to immerse yourself in a movie on your big screen or to play music while you’re hanging out with friends. It’s best to work with a company that specializes in home surround sound setup when installing a surround sound system since they’ll know the best places to put speakers, subwoofers, and other audio equipment.

Finish things off with some nice decorative touches

After you’ve picked out great seating, installed your custom home theater, and set up your surround sound system, you’ll almost be ready to start enjoying your man cave. But before you do, sprinkle some decorative touches throughout it to complete the look. From a dartboard to a big beer sign to drapes you can use to darken your windows, there are so many small touches you can add to a man cave that will pay off in a big way.

Installing a Home Theater System

What to Know Before Having a Home Theater System Installed

So you are ready to bring your movie and television viewing experiences to the next level with a high tech home theater system… smart move! Movies these days have upped the ante when it comes to special effects and sound technology, and you will want to enjoy every minute.

Before you decide to install a theater system, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Think About the Room

Before you even start to set up a home theater center, you want to think about the room you will be putting it in. The proper room will do wonders to get the most out your system. Ideally, you will have a rectangular room with as few doors or windows as possible. This should also be a carpeted room as bare wood or tile work to reflect sound waves and muddy the sound. To really kick the room up a notch, put some thick curtains over the windows to provide that perfect amount of darkness.

Decide on the Television

When it comes to the television for your new theater, we suggest having OLED TVs installed. OLED TVs give you darker blacks and truer colors, making it an exceptional option for home owners who are looking for image quality above all else in their new home theater.

Decide on the Projector

Although TVs are the most common option for home theaters, video projectors deliver a really big screen viewing experience. Similar to TVs, you have the choice of 720p, 1080p and 4K options. There are many advances to 4K video projectors, such as increased resolution, HDR and wide color gamut. All of these advances have elevated the TV viewing experience.

Decide on the Sound

You will have to start with a point of entry for all of your speakers in the form of a receiver. This is an excellent way to centralize your home theater system, so be sure to get one that will have all necessary inputs. Most people go with a receiver.

You also have the option of a preamp/power amp combo device. This hub can provide more flexibility when it comes to switching out or upgrading your devices. It also does wonders for isolating interference that is often caused by having multiple components working at the same time. From there, all you need is your choice of loudspeakers and a good subwoofer.

At Shore Home Solutions, we take pride in our home theater design and installation services, and we would be thrilled to help you better your movie viewing experience. We want to personalize your experience, so we will talk with you to learn your expectations so we can design your own personal home theater at a fair cost. Contact us today to set up a consultation!

Why High End Home Theater Systems Will Impress You

Why High End Home Theater Systems Will Impress You

Installing a high end home theater system in your house is a big investment, but if you are serious about creating the absolute best home theater experience possible, you should consider going with a high end system that will provide you with sights and sounds that will blow you and your family away. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of going with a high end system.

Spectacular video

When you sit down to watch a movie or a big game in your home theater, you want the picture to be absolutely perfect. A high end home theater will deliver it to you by relying on a projector like one of the Sony SXRD series projectors (the VPLVW885ES or VPLVZ1000ES, for example). These projectors—and others like them—will turn any space in your home into a movie theater by projecting brilliant colors and amazing images onto your screen. You almost won’t be able to believe how great movies and games look when they are projected on your wall.

Incredible audio

While excellent video is obviously a key component of any home theater, you also will need great audio to get the full experience. There are many companies out there that create speakers specifically designed for high end home theaters. The Masterpiece Series from Martin Logan and the Silver Series from Monitor Audio are just a couple of examples of the kinds of speakers available to you. Rather than simply going with a standard surround sound system, you should think high end and have your speakers installed professionally to make the most of your home theater space.

Unparalleled connectivity

Once you have your projector up and your speakers strategically placed, it’s time to bring your high end home theater system together by offering you the connectivity you will need to control everything right from your fingertips. URC and Savant can provide you with touchscreens that will allow you to control your picture, audio, and so much more. All you will need to do is sit back and enjoy yourself once your high end home theater system is done, thanks to the easy-to-use touchscreens that are available.
