So much goes into planning and implementing the perfect home cinema room. First, you need a room that is the right size, with the right conditions—from proper lighting to reliable sound insulation. Second, you need the right screen to justify having a media room in the first place—whether that’s a large theater-style projection screen or a big-screen TV with the crispest resolution possible. Third, you need a booming sound system that can truly fill the space with loud, immersive, and high-clarity sound. By the time you get through all these steps, it’s easy to want to turn on the TV, fire up the sound system, throw on your favorite movie, and enjoy the spoils of an extensive process. However, there’s one more piece to the puzzle, and it’s an important one: the custom theater seats.
Why Custom Theater Seats Matter
At Starpower, we work closely with homeowners to help them design top-tier home cinema rooms. From screen size to décor, all the way to seating configuration and line-of-sight considerations, we can help you work through every piece of the home media room equation. While many customers think of us as an electronics retailer—and we can certainly help you pick out the right screens, projectors, and sound systems for your home theater—we also work with a premium leather furniture manufacturer to craft beautiful custom theater seats.
“Why can’t I just put my favorite sofa or armchairs in my media room?” you may ask. Here are a few reasons why home theater seats are so important to the cinema atmosphere you are trying to cultivate with your home theater room.
1. They enhance your comfort: The first and most prominent reason to purchase actual home theater seats for your home theater is comfort. We customize seating options specifically with theater rooms in mind. With us, you can get reclining theater seats with adjustable headrest and adjustable footrest features. We can even help you plan out the layout of your home theater space so that every viewer enjoys perfect sightlines with no need for odd seating positions or other sacrifices in comfort. We think that comfort makes films, TV shows, big sporting events, and other video content more enjoyable in every way, and we are here to provide that comfort.
2. They make your media room look the part: Even the most state-of-the-art media room will look like a living room with a standard sofa or armchair. Our theater chairs help cultivate the cinema atmosphere by really looking the part. They are stylish leather seats—available in a variety of colors and leather grades—that resemble what you would see in an upscale movie theater. When you have your friends over, they will feel as if they’ve stepped into a timeless Hollywood movie house. That aesthetic and vibe are crucial will only make your home theater feel that much more special.
3. They bring you into the action of what’s on-screen: One of the coolest things we can do at Starpower is build very realistic motion-response simulation technology into our home theater seats. Even most movie theaters only have this technology installed on a few seats, and you have to pay extra for them. Imagine having that technology right there in your home, where you can take advantage of it all the time. Use it to experience your favorite films in new ways. The tremors and vibrations are especially terrific for action blockbusters or horror/slasher flicks, where they help accentuate every gunshot, explosion, or jump-inducing music cue.
4. They let you enjoy food and drink in front of the screen: Let’s be honest, there’s just something satisfying about enjoying a meal in front of a big screen. There’s a reason more, and more movie theaters are cropping up where food service is part of the experience. Even if you’re not one to eat in front of the TV often, you’d probably enjoy a good spot to stow your water glass, soda can, or beer bottle during the film or football game. All Starpower chairs come with your choice of add-on accessories—including cupholders and tray tables. Trust us: you’ll be tempted to take every meal at home in front of the big screen. It makes every night feel like a night out on the town.
5. They eliminate the “lost remote control” conundrum: We’ve all been there before, wanting to watch something on TV but unable to find the remote control. Did it slip behind the cushions of the couch, or did someone in your family take it into a different room and forget to bring it back? With Starpower’s custom theater seats, you don’t have to worry about that type of problem anymore. Another optional accessory we offer is the pop-up control screen. Ostensibly, what we do is build your remote control directly into the theater seat itself. That way, you don’t have to deal with the “lost remote” problem, but still know that the controls for your system are just inches away.
In addition to reclining functions, adjustable headrests, cupholders, tray tables, and pop-up control screens, Starpower also offers a few other optional accessories that our customers have loved. For instance, some buyers want their chairs to have swivel functions, so they can spin around and have conversations with friends or family after the film or game ends. Tablet holders, reading lights, storage units, and powered grommets (for plugging in and charging your devices) are some of the other features we offer.
