Creating a Home Theater for the Holidays
Building an Entertainment Mecca for Movie Night, Sporting Events, and Gamers
November has arrived, and with it, the thoughts of family gatherings, parties, shopping, and holiday music at every turn. For some, the holidays bring a feeling of joy and excitement. For others, a slight sense of dread. Whichever group you find yourself in, know that a home theater installation can help make this holiday season one of the best yet. So let's see how a personal home theater can transform your Bethesda, MD home.
Movies to View on the Big Screen
Whether you're layering the lights on a Christmas tree or lighting the menorah, there are movies we turn to every year that help us celebrate this special season. Some can't imagine letting November pass without viewing Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving or Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. When December rolls around, it may be time to tune into The Grinch, Elf, It’s a Wonderful Life, or Mistletoe & Menorahs.
Of course, let’s not forget the three big games on Thanksgiving! Now, imagine watching Thanksgiving Day football games and these movie classics on a big screen in your home theater. Some people even decide to surprise their children with a home theater as a Christmas gift—all decked out to optimize playing video games.
Whether watching movies or sports, binging on Netflix, or playing Minecraft or Fortnite, it’s an experience your friends and family are sure to remember.
The Entertainment Hub
One of our clients' first questions is if they can have it all—a home theater designed for movie night, game day, and gamers. The answer is a resounding yes! While response times, refresh rates, contrast, and high definition are critical for gamers, they're also solid considerations for optimizing sporting events and movies.
We’ll discuss the pros and cons of projectors and large screen TVs. Technology has advanced both options so that your cinematic experience will outshine the best movie theaters in town. 4K and 8K UHD projectors and OLED TVs deliver high-resolution content and life-like detail that make you feel like you're in the game or on the set.
Our expert technicians can also create a three-dimensional sound experience. The audio comes from in-wall and in-ceiling speakers that surround and envelop you in a dome of sound. The planes are flying over you, and the ocean waves surround you. Today's audio and video technology creates a truly immersive experience.
Ease of use is what sets apart a home theater that family and friends can truly enjoy. One Source’s certified technicians can integrate a home automation system and program scenes that enable one-touch control. For example, a “Movie Night” button will start the projector or TV, activate the surround sound, and dim the lights. A “Sports” button may display different sports channels and dim the lights slightly.
The Little Details
Sometimes it’s the little details that make a project. While audio and video are the leading ladies, lights, fabric, seating, and other design elements bring the space together. A few special touches include fiber optic star ceilings, a vintage popcorn maker, and tiered home theater seating or lush, overstuffed reclining loveseats.
A home theater is truly a gift your friends and family will appreciate for years to come. At One Source, we treat every client as our first, creating customized home entertainment solutions that add to their enjoyment and ease of living.
Our project managers can look at room and space options and make suggestions based on their years of experience. Then, we’ll start turning your home theater vision into a reality. For a complimentary consultation, contact One Source today.
