It’s All About Comfort and Lifestyle
On these pages, we’ve discussed home theaters versus media rooms, the merits of flat panel displays versus projectors, and options for sound systems. It’s easy to get caught up in choosing the right audio and video equipment for your entertainment space. One area that may not get as much attention is seating.
The choice of seating in your space is as important as any other decision, perhaps even more so. Think about it. If you went to the local cineplex and found the seat uncomfortable for any reason – not enough legroom, padding, support, etc. – there's a good chance you remember that experience more than the movie itself. If you're sitting for hours watching a film or football in your home, comfort is paramount.
Another aspect to consider when selecting seating is how the room is laid out and how furniture will fit inside. Do you enjoy high-backed, reclining, or theater-style seating? Or do you prefer casual sofa-oriented seating? Or maybe a mix?
