Consider These Things When Choosing Your Home Theater Seating


The Right Seating for Your Home Theater Isn’t Only About Comfort

There are many vital components of a home theater system: the screen, the sound system, the lighting. But one essential element that you might not have thought about is cinema seating. An uncomfortable home theater seat can ruin your home theater experience. Read our blog to learn three things to consider when working with a home theater designer to select the cinema seating for your Leawood, KS home.




When evaluating which seating to install in your home theater, the first thing you need to consider is how many seats you will need and how they will fit into your space. How big is your family? Do you often have friends over? Are you planning on having multiple rows of seating? How tall are the people using your home theater (chair back height can block surround sound or cause neck pains)? If you have a small room and plan to have a large group of people, consider narrower recliners. Add a riser to elevate the second row, allowing for more people to fit in, and ensure that there is a six-foot depth so that the chairs don’t collide when reclined. For example, the Octane Seating Riser Series offers a built-in riser that adds eight inches in height, allowing everyone to enjoy your luxury home theater.


You want a home theater or media room chair that is beautiful but also comfortable. Comfort is very personal, so try out your seating before you invest in it. Some chairs feature low-density foam and lose support after an extended period, even if they are comfortable in the short-term. You want a chair that is the perfect balance of soft and firm. Salamander Design offers seating designed for comfort over long stretches of use, providing strategic head, lumbar, leg, and foot support. If you cannot try out the chairs in person, read as many online reviews as you can.


Power recliners allow you to smoothly recline to your ideal position without having to adjust your chair manually. Other popular features include USB ports to charge your smart device of choice, wine glass holders, arm storage compartments, tray tables, and more. You shouldn’t sacrifice function for style; get the best of both worlds with seating from Cinematech, a gold standard for luxury home theater seating.
