1. What is the optimal amount of seating for your room?
First, and foremost, what are the measurements of the room?
You will need approximately 2 feet of width for aisle space and 7 feet of depth per row of theater seating.
If you want two rows, the back row will need to sit on a platform or tier approximately 6 inches tall.
What size screen is in your room?
A basic rule of thumb is to multiply your screen by 1.5 and that is approximately optimal viewing distance.
Obviously, with two or three rows of seating only one row can sit at optimum distance
How many people on average will be in the media room?
Typically, a family of 4 will want seating for 8 people. That's 4 seats for family members and 4 seats for guests.
2. What materials make the best seating covers?
Bonded leather has quickly become one of the most popular furniture covers on the market. Bonded leather is reconstituted leather scraps glued on a fabric backing.
Top grain leather is still the most popular seating choice. It is the most durable cover available, easy to clean, and still a great value for your dollar.
Fabric has one big advantage as a cover choice: Non-solid color designs. While not as durable, or cleanable as the other options, it is still the most affordable, design savvy choice.
3. What are the pros and cons to motorized recline seating?
Motorized seating has become the standard in the industry.
Motorized seating is just as durable as its manual counterpart, provides an infinite number of reclining positions versus 2 positions with a manual chair, and is only moderately more expensive.
4. What are the pros and cons to custom ordering seating?
The pros to custom seating vary in value with each customer.
Having a large color selection is absolutely vital to some media rooms, while black or brown is the soup-de-jour for most others.
Being able to get that perfect configuration with curved sets and sofas are necessary to meet the seating preferences of many of our clients, while many others are happy with 2 rows of straight configured 3PC sets.
Then, of course, there are the additions of USB ports, lighting, table trays, storage, etc. that some people consider "must haves," while others just want the seats to have cup holders.
The two cons of custom seating are price and availability.
5. What information should you know before beginning to shop for theater seating?
A few pieces of absolutely necessary information to know BEFORE you begin the theater seat shopping process:
The dimensions of the room; write them down and bring them with you.
Predetermine your approximate budget.
Determine how many people you would like to seat in the room, along with any special configurations you would like to have (i.e. curved seats, sofas, standalone chairs, etc.).
Determine what color(s) you would like to have for your seating.
If you can predetermine just these 4 things, we can present you with all of the seats that meet or most closely meet your criteria very quickly. Our goal is customer satisfaction, and knowing these things can help us to best serve you!
