Home Theater Lighting and Design

Home theater lighting is an important topic to consider when building your new theater. Though you'll primarily be watching your movies with the lights out, you still want to have good lighting coverage to set just the right mood.

The right atmosphere can really enhance your enjoyment of a movie. Uncontrolled ambient light can wash out colors on front projector systems. Insufficient ambient light can make viewing a movie in total darkness result in eyestrain. Properly placed accent lights can help draw the eye to certain features of your new home theater.

You can take advantage of new control systems to control your lighting system from your chair. When its movie time, hit a single button to have the system kill the lights over the audience while dimming the wall sconces. This is sure to impress your friends.

There are several ways to light your home theater. Here are several articles detailing different ideas and approaches you could apply to your own theater design.
