Luxurious Home Cinema AdditionsJune 18, 2013
Over the past twenty years, home cinemas have become a popular option for luxury homeowners. No longer is this amenity rare with upscale residences. Homeowners are looking for a large screening room they can use specifically for movies, sports and any other type of viewing they prefer. The expectation of adding a cinema to a home is to rival the experience of actually going to the movies. The expectations have driven designers and installers towards some creative ways to provide the movie-viewing experience desired by the rich.
Some homeowners are designing their home to include a cinema from the beginning, while others are adding one to the basement or an extra room they don’t use. The Glitz and Glamour of the in-home theater is a huge part of the homes converting space into a cinema. Many of these luxury homeowners don’t want just a room with a few chairs and a big screen TV. They want the entire movie-going experience at home with the most comfortable chairs, best sound system and more.
Some of the features found in luxury home theaters across the globe include:
• Reclining luxury massage loungers
• Lavish decorative items, such as mahogany embellishments and gold leaf enhancements
• Marble staircases
• A full bar with beer on tap
• Computerized wine cellar
• Screens as large as 13 to 20 feet
• Touchscreen remotes and iPad control
• 7.1-channel JBL Synthesis sound system
• Platinum subwoofers
• Three-chip digital projector with anamorphic lens
The companies designing and building these lavish theaters spend thousands of hours to create the perfect in-home experience for the homeowners. Theaters range from seating for 12 to seating for 45 with huge screens, bathrooms with flat screen TVs, massive wine cellars and more. Some of the most luxurious theaters feature reclining chairs with blanket storage in the arm and granite snack trays.
