Integrate your lighting. Home automation can help replicate that real cinema experience by adding those special touches such as lights that automatically dim when the film begins or LED step lighting that comes on when the film is paused for a bathroom break. Lights and film have always gone hand in hand — a smart host like a smart director should use lighting to create the perfect atmosphere for a film.

Brick with wood. Exposed brick with surrounding millwork looks timeless and can be a great way to update an older brick fireplace. The untouched brick adds a more textural contrast to a freshly painted mantel and surround. Forgo white or off-white; paint your fireplace surround a bold color and watch your room transform from good to great.

Dark floors or a dark rug will help it visually sink away into the ground where it won’t be noticed until it’s TV time.

Link multiple screens. If you have multiple TV screens then it’s likely you’ll want to have access to the same channels content and films on each screen. Traditionally this required multiple (and messy) set-top boxes and complicated subscriptions but now centralized TV distribution offers a more elegant solution. It allows you to store all of your television sources and subscriptions in a separate A/V rack. The content can then be sent directly to any screen in your home in high definition.
