How Do You Feel About Distractions?


Determine If A Home Theater or Media Room Is Best for Your Home

Are you a Netflix binger or a classic film connoisseur? Then you’ve likely thought of upgrading your home’s AV to support an engaging TV and movie-watching experience.

Do you prefer a dark room with limited lighting and movieplex seating? Or do you like to lounge while the kids play a video game or board game nearby? Your answer to these questions can help you narrow down which type of space would better suit you and your family. Your tolerance for distractions is the true measuring stick of which entertainment design is best.

Keep reading below to learn how we, as the leading home theater company in Brentwood, TN, strive to consistently bring the latest high-performance audio/video components to our clients’ homes, whether it be a media room or home cinema space.

Home Theater

Symspire is a company that’s brought home theaters to Tennessee homes for nearly a decade, creating immersive audio/video spaces that not only perform well but look great, too. Personal cinemas reflect the traditional moviegoing experience: luxury seating designed for comfort and performance; ultra-high-definition displays that place you smack dab in the middle of a scene; and audio with booming bass and crystal-clear dialogue. To aid the immersive experience, motorized blackout shades and dimmable lighting ensure no glare on the screen.

If someone were to talk in a home theater, your first reaction would be, “Shh!” Scrolling on a cellphone would be distracting, too. Distractions aren’t welcome in a home theater because they interfere with the luxurious, immersive entertainment experience.

Media Room

Media rooms are multipurpose entertainment areas designed for the entire family to enjoy at any given time of day. Billiards, board games, TV shows, movies, video games, music listening, lounging, reading—it’s all fair game in a media room! Seating is more casual yet still comfortable for long binge-watching sessions; audio and video quality is still high-performance, but ambient noise isn’t a concern; lighting and shading still assist in reducing glare and changing the mood of the room.

If your partner or kids were to pull out their smartphone to respond to a text during a movie, you likely wouldn’t bat an eye. A boisterous video game mission happening on the other side of the room would be a welcome addition to your TV watching experience. The immersive AV experience isn’t the main goal for media room designs.

Of course, the perfect entertainment space for your Brentwood-area home can also blend features of media rooms and home theaters, but be sure to reflect upon your desire for distractions before making a final decision. At Symspire, we specialize in crafting the perfect fun and innovative technology solutions for our clients. Chat with us below or connect with us using our online form. We can’t wait to work with you!
