Home theater seating layout: 5 key design and placement tips

The first task that should be done in any home theater design is choosing the number and type of seats. That’s probably surprising to most enthusiasts as they think that equipment is the first thing that should be selected! In fact seating choices end up dictating a lot of other things including room dimensions, acoustic treatment and subwoofer / speaker type and placement.

There are two ways to go about designing seating: from the “outside in” or from the “inside out”.

 

1. Seating Placement Approach

Inside Out

For rooms where there is flexibility in dimensions, such as a

Make your home a happier place: A design psychology coach provides tips

Rebecca West, a design psychology coach, interior designer and founder of Seriously Happy Homes, joined staff writer Jura Koncius for our Home Front online chat. Here is an edited excerpt.

Q: What should you do if what makes you happy does not make your partner happy, such as clutter and organization?

A: I see this a lot, and I find the key is to have a conversation not about the clutter, but about your combined goals. If the cluttery ones can express what the clutter brings to their life (happy memories, or maybe they need to see stuff to know that it exists) and if the tidy ones can express how the clutter is a hardship (maybe it creates a lot of stress or embarrassment), then you can start to understand what each person needs and try to find a way to solve for both. Maybe the clutter goes into

Designer Decorating Tips for Common Design Mistakes — One Kings Lane

This bright, cheery room does lighting right: Twin lamps and sconces help soften overhead lighting.

This bright, cheery room does lighting right: Twin lamps and sconces help soften overhead lighting.

THE PITFALL: Unflattering, overhead-only lighting.

THE FIX: “A balanced lighting plan will eliminate shadows and cast an even glow throughout the room. Overhead lights are fine when there’s also light coming from other heights, like a pair of sconces or lamps. I also use dimmers on all lighting to control the mood.”—Jen Going of Jen Going Interiors

This gorgeous gray sofa provides the perfect anchor for epic wall art.

THE PITFALL: Centering art on the wall rather than orienting it around the furniture.

THE FIX: “Art should relate to what’s in the space more than the space itself. One way to do this is to hang the art near the back of the sofa. And personally, I prefer the art be off center than on.”—Philip Gorrivan of Philip Gorrivan Design

Nobody wants to feel like they’re entertaining in a train carriage or watching TV in a hallway.
