A personal movie palace only steps away
As much fun as it is to go to the cinema, there are a number of headaches that have become a part of the moviegoing process. As reserved seats become more popular, the best seats in the auditorium are often claimed weeks ahead of time. If you want to buy your increasingly expensive tickets ahead of time, be ready to pay convenience fees. Once you’re there, you get to deal with concessions lines and people interrupting your viewing experience by checking their text messages.
There’s a better way to enjoy movies with your friends and family, and a dedicated home theater installation from Barrett’s Technology Solutions makes cinema-grade audio and video available to you at any time. Homeowners in Hinsdale, Naperville, and the greater Chicago area trust us to create custom home theaters that reflect their personal style, are easy to operate, and deliver optimal A/V performance, giving them unprecedented control of their entertainment environment.
The most exciting aspect of home theater design is imagining a space that embodies your personality and aesthetic in a way a cineplex never can, and we’ll help you achieve your vision while offering the technical know-how that ensures the design is tightly tied to function.
Do you prefer a large flat-screen TV or a projector? Would you rather spotlight high-performance loudspeakers or conceal your audio equipment inside the walls and ceiling? We’ll guide you through your options to find the A/V components that work best for your specific needs.
Surround sound plays an integral role in enveloping you in the world of a movie. We examine the dimensions of your space and the proposed seating configuration to decide on the best placement of your speakers, so every seat experiences optimized audio.
We also take the necessary steps to isolate the sound in your home theater to keep outside noise out and prevent you from disturbing anyone else in your household with late-night viewings.
Linking your dedicated home theater to your smart home control system gives you easy access to the integrated technology in the room, from your media sources to smart lighting, motorized shades, and climate control. You can set a specific “scene” that, with the touch of one button on your smartphone or tablet, activates your projector and sound system, drops a screen, dims the lights, and brings the room to your ideal viewing temperature.
A media server allows you to put your digital music and video libraries in one place for streamlined browsing, and you quickly switch between your server, Blu-Ray player, and streaming service from your smart home control app.
Personalized Theater Seating
You don’t have to stick to traditional cinema seating configurations for your home theater. We have plenty of selections if you want rows of plush leather or microfiber recliners, but you can also customize your seating arrangements for your viewing habits.
If you have kids that squirm around when they don’t have enough space, you can put a larger couch at the front of the theater that gives them room to move. Planning on using your dedicated home theater for more relaxed viewings? Incorporate a chair-and-table arrangement that makes it easier to entertain your group before and after the movie.
We work with Chicago design and build professionals to establish the layout of your home theater and create an installation plan that considers all parties involved for a smooth process. No one is stepping on each other’s toes, and we pride ourselves on a collaborative spirit that gives you the best possible results.
