5 Steps to Constructing a Dedicated Home Theater
Innovative Lifestyles is your Naples, Florida guide to design and entertainment
An entertainment setup in your living room provides a nice area to watch your favorite shows, but what if you want to go the extra mile and build your own dedicated home theatre? Innovative Lifestyles has the experience, tools, and dedication needed to build your very own private cinema.
Whether you are remodelling an existing space or constructing a new home, you’re going to want to work with an integrator like us who can easily collaborate with interior designers, architects, electricians and more.
There are many elements to an automation project, and a large job like putting a theater in your home requires a specific process. But where do you even begin? Innovative Lifestyles can help you navigate the steps and give you an idea of what to expect when you hire our team. It’s simpler than you might think.
1) Develop a Vision and Plan for the Project – At Innovative Lifestyles, our job is to deliver exactly what you want—but an essential element to accomplishing that is putting down on paper the specifics that start out as ideas in your head. First, we meet with you and ask a series of questions. If you’re unsure of what you want, we can help you with that too. We have examples of previous work we’ve done in the areas of Naples, Ft. Meyers, Captiva Island, and Sanibel Island to give you ideas of what we can do. Once you are confident in your vision, our designers and engineers create the official plans for the project. We show you the plans in advance so you know exactly what you are getting and where.
2) Initiate Pre-construction – In this step, we make sure that your home has all of the essential requirements before beginning to install the automation system and hardware. Framing, electrical, mechanical and other structural elements should be accounted for. Depending on the situation, this could lead to further construction.
3) Begin Construction – Depending on how much work needs to be done, this part of the project could take weeks or months. You’ll be updated every step of the way. And if any issues arise needing further work or adjustments, we’ll let you know upfront so you won’t be blindsided by the final costs.
4) Put on the Finishing Touches – Besides seating, this could include any additional furnishings. We’ve met our goals, but maybe you want to add a feature you hadn’t previously thought about, like adding an entertainment server system by Kaleidescape. Our team goes over the system with you and every piece of the theater that we covered at the discovery meeting, combined with any additions we included along the way. When Innovative Lifestyles presents your dedicated home theater, we make sure you’re more than happy with the final product.
We hope this helps you as you begin to think about creating the home theater of your dreams. Please call us at (239) 591-4673 or fill out the contact form on our website if you’d like to get started or have any questions. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
