Home Theater Lighting

Specific elements need to be taken into consideration in order to properly light your home theater. First, avoid harsh lighting that would cause a glare on the screen. Be sure the lighting you choose has dimming capabilities, such as recessed lighting, that will allow you to choose the brightness and create a certain ambiance. Home theater lighting is essential in providing comfort and avoiding eyestrain that can occur from viewing a movie in total darkness.

Here is a list of essential home theater lighting:
1. Ceiling: recessed lighting
2. Wall: decorative sconces
3. Aisles: rope lights or accent lights
4. Storage: under cabinet lighting
