Creating a home media center means you’ll never have to put up with the annoying guy at the theater who talks through the whole movie (unless, of course, you’re married to him). Here are a few tips to get you started.

Think about acoustics

Choose a room with limited windows and doors to seal in the sound. Keep in mind that vaulted ceilings can be tough when it comes to adjusting your sound system.

Set up strategically

To find the optimum distance to sit from the screen, the general rule of thumb is to multiply the diagonal size of your TV in inches by two.

Popcorn, of course

Once you’re nestled into your home theater seats, you’re not going to want to walk all the way to the kitchen for more refreshments. Consider investing in an old-fashioned popcorn stand. A mini-fridge may come in handy, too.

Set the scene

Frame a few posters from your favorite flicks and hang them on the wall. Popcorn buckets and marquee lights can also add to the environment.
