We love going to the movies. But as TVs and projectors become more affordable, and new technologies offer crystal-clear pictures and stunning surround sound, you really can enjoy that same amazing cinematic experience from the comfort of home. Whether you’re looking to subtly incorporate a home theater into your living room or you’re ready for the ultimate setup complete with stadium seating, we’ll show you how to create a home theater that even the toughest critics will rave about!
Take 1: A Moderate Setup
While movie nights may not be a daily or even weekly event at your home, you still consider yourselves fans of the cinema. In this case, we have just the setup for you. To ensure that everyone in the room has a clear view of the TV, try angling a couple of chaises
at the front of your room and place a sofa in the back. This setup gives everyone a perfect view and a comfy place to stretch out during those long movie marathons.

Also, no moviegoing experience is complete without snacks! So to avoid a snack disaster, choose furniture that features easy-to-clean fabrics, like this microfiber sofa
or even the leather-look coffee table. For folks sitting on the chaises, flip-top storage ottomans
are the perfect place to set down food and drinks. And when they’re not being used for snacks, they can serve as footrests or even extra seating.
Instead of a traditional TV console, consider taking things up a notch with a fireplace console
. This will give you the storage you need for your electronics while adding some ambience and warmth to the room (you’ll especially appreciate its on-demand heat if your home theater is located in your basement).
