4 Tips To Give Your Home Theater A Clean Look
Are you planning to install a home theater and want it to look really slick with a clean look? If so, it will help to follow these tips so that the look of your home theater is equally impressive as the sound and picture.
Mount The TV To The Wall
While your 4K television is going to come with a stand, know you do not have to use it. That's because having a stand requires some sort of base to mount it on, which is just going to take up space in your home theater. Consider mounting the TV to the wall so that it is at the perfect height and that you can easily change the viewing angle. You don't want to skimp out on the mount either, since having full motion movement will allow you to fine tune the viewing angle much better than a cheap mount that gives you a limited range of movement.
Hide The Wires
Now that the TV is mounted to the wall, what do you do with all those wires going to the television? Consider hiding them in the wall so that you cannot see them. This can be done by putting a plastic tube in the wall for you to feed all your wires through, which allow you to easily swap cables or add new components later on. If you have easy access to the opposite side of the wall where your TV is mounted, consider adding recessed shelving so that you do not need a separate component cabinet. You can then easily run wires behind the wall and to your television set.
Hide The Speakers
Another trick you can use to improve the look of your home theater is to hide the speakers. Place them in the wall so that the speakers are not sticking into the room, then cover them with a thin fabric cover that matches the color of the room. This will provide a clean look where you can't see all of the speakers needed for a 5.1 surround sound setup.
Simplify The Remotes
Tired of having a dozen remotes laying around for all our components? Consider simplifying your setup with a universal remote control. This will condense everything down to a single remote so that you do not have to go hunting around for each one when it is lost or have plenty of remotes out on a table cluttering the space.
Keep these tips in mind as you plan your home theater.
