High-Tech Hideaways | How Luxury Theatres Raise The Value Of A Home

March 3, 2022 Share

An unusual, high-end feature like a luxury home theatre might not be to everyone’s taste, but it is a trend that’s increasing in popularity. 

For years, home designers and architects have been incorporating luxurious private screening rooms or a indoor theatre into large mansions.

The trend is growing so fast that real estate agents find buyers expecting the luxury amenity in all new builds.

With the prolific entertainment options available On Demand and with Netflix and Amazon, the rest of us can now enjoy the privilege of watching new theatrical releases.

We consume more content than ever before. Still, for the rich and famous with private screening rooms in their homes, the experience is better than goin the neamenitieseshood movie houses.

The home theatres are the main components in a luxury sale right now. People love that escapism, and it’s been one of the main features for years, but they have certainly gotten bigger and better, and the money that people are spending on them is outrageous. 

People want to make their theatres more informal and make them super loungey.

The key to creating a home theatre that will increase your home value is being very design-conscious. But always remember that realtors like to point out how a home theatre is unpredictable and almost always down to the individual quality of the space. 


In other words, you need a bit more than just a large room that has a screen and some seats in it – you will need to invest in good lighting, as well as the extras that add that luxurious touch, whether it’s high-quality upholstery textiles or maybe even a fireplace.

A home theater is just a room if you don’t invest in a worthy sound system. The feeling of an immersive sound experience, better than movie-theater quality sound, just can’t be beaten. 

You’ll be so much more pleased with the final result if you invest in the tech that provides stunning sound and arresting visual images. 

Suppose you still aren’t convinced whether a home cinema is worth the investment, despite the unlimited hours of high-quality entertainment and complete control of the experience.

In that case, the fact that a dedicated cinema room with complete integrated media, lighting and climate control technology will substantially increase your home value may do the trick. 

The room could be built simply from a converted garage, shed, spare bedroom, and a dedicated transformed area. A media room allows dual-purpose use of this space, rather than one function, ‘cinema room’.

If you are considering moving home at some point, then the luxury of a cinema room will be sure to entice buyers.
