The Necessity of Home Theater Seating
For most owners of home theater systems, the height of excellence is usually measured with getting the best video player in the market. (These days, Blu-ray is the current highest standard of video quality.) Spaceships blasting their enemies to smithereens never looked better on a 27-inch screen (or bigger).
Those who are also finicky with audio quality would want nothing less than the latest high-definition sound system to go into their home theater. There is nothing like hearing those car crashes, explosions, and machine gun fire better than in real life.
However, there are still those who forget a very important component that makes for a perfect home theater – home theater seating. They might have the best audio visual players in the market, but they still use their overworked sofa while watching their favorite movie.
For the real home theater aficionado, home theater seating is half of the essentials of perfect home theater viewing enjoyment. (The other half is the tandem of the best video and audio systems.) Without either one, there is no home theater to speak of.
The main point is that audience comfort is just as important as the quality of the sounds and images on screen. Your choice of the chairs must blend in with the size of your screen and the depth of your sound system.
Convenience and other factors
There are other factors to consider for your home theater seating. Your choice of chairs should be easy to get in and out of and have the perfect body support (dense cushions). These also include those fat arm rests and convenient foot rests.
They should also be durable enough and easy to clean (if you have children in the family). Some chairs do not have arm rests for cuddling couples or for people who want big spaces. You can also merge chair design (looks, color, etc) with the total area scheme if your theater system is in your living room.
Price-wise, there are selections under $600 and pricier setups that have seats with cup holders, recliners, and with footrests that have built-in spaces for wireless speakers. The right home theater seating is as good an investment as your audio and video systems.
