Everyone has a spot where they watch TV or movies, but not everyone has a home theatre. The first time I saw a home theatre set up, complete with home theatre seating, lighting, and a big screen TV, was in a hotel we were staying at. One movie in that room and I was hooked, and my goal became recreate that exact room in my own home. Thankfully, it’s not that hard to do.
The most important choice you’ll make is finding the best big screen TV for you, but a close second is choosing the ideal home theatre seating. Home theatre seating is important because you want to be able to kick back and be comfortable when you’re enjoying your movies and TV shows, and having the perfect home theatre set up can let you do just that.
Choose how many seats you need
Maybe you want to set up your home theatre with cozy seating for two, or you’ve got a big family and want to be sure everyone has a spot. Your first step to choosing your home theatre seating is to decide on 1 seat, 2 seats, 3 seats, or 4 seats, or whether or not you’ll set up a combination of seats to create a comfortable home theatre.
Choose the style of home theatre seating you’d like
Home theatre seating comes in a few types of styles. Maybe you love the look and feel of deep black leather and you’d like to sink into a chair with extra cushion: the Octane Diesel XS950 could be what you’re looking for. The chairs are made of luxurious brown leather and are part of the Diesel collection so you can add other pieces to your home theatre.
What I love about the Octane Diesel chairs is that they have power recline, so when you have your popcorn and you’re ready to watch, all you have to do is touch a button and you’re extra comfortable.
If you love deep black and want even more seating, take a look at the Octane Storm XL850. These contemporary chairs have manual recline and lumbar support so everyone watching with you is comfortable.
Don’t forget about the extras
A chair is just a chair, but home theatre seating offers you so much more. Some models like the Octane Turbo XL700 offer you blue LED lighted cup holders, ambient base lighting so you can see where your chair is in the dark, and an accessory dock where you can plug in optional swivel tray tables, dual USB chargers, wine glass and iPad holders, and even a flex reading light.
Once you’ve got your home theatre seating installed and you’re all set up with your big screen TV, all you have to do is make the popcorn and you’re ready to watch movies with friends and family. The best part of having a home theatre? You don’t have to leave the house to enjoy it.
