Things to Consider When Purchasing Theater Seating for Your Home

Your living room is the hub of your family’s social gatherings. Watching movies, television, playing video games, and streaming are all daily activities within the home. Your TV room is your hangout. So why not make it memorable with custom home theater seating?

When planning the ideal home theater experience, seating is often overlooked.

Home theater seating isn’t just for screening rooms anymore. Home theater seating has made it into every space in the home, including living rooms, dens, basements, man caves, rec rooms, family rooms, and more.

You may have considered home theater seating in the past, or perhaps you have seen it on television or in an advertisement. Maybe you have questions and want to learn more.

Before getting started, you need to ask yourself a few questions:

  • What size is your room?
  • How much space do you have?
  • Where will you mount your TV?
  • Is it wall-mounted, on a stand, or in a home entertainment center cabinet?
  • What size is your TV?
  • How many seats do you need?

Why Would You Need Movie Theater Seating at Home?

Sitting in a movie theater chair takes us back to our childhood, making us feel the magic of watching movies as we share them with family and loved ones. Owning your own home theater can create a luxurious experience that can enhance your enjoyment of movies, games, and sports and ultimately enrich your precious family time. Home theaters create a home atmosphere and viewing experience unlike any other due to their customization options and ease of access for you and your family.

Nothing can recreate that movie theater experience like high-quality home theater seating. Movie theater seats aren’t just regular chairs: they are designed to give us the comfort and support we need for extended viewing. Built-in accessories like headrests, armrests, power recline, stainless steel cup holders, and LED lighting really add to that movie theater experience, so you can more easily lose yourself watching the movies, shows, and videos you love.

Owning movie theater seats might not seem necessary at first glance, but just like shopping for your dream TV or surround sound system, it is something you need to experience to appreciate.

Nothing brings back that sensation of early childhood movie magic as much as dimming the lights, turning up the volume, and relaxing in a high-back, luxurious home theater chair with LED ground lighting and cupholder armrests.

Home theater seats recreate the ambiance and the feel of an actual movie theater experience. But with home theater seating, you can have customizable add-ons like detachable food trays, power reclining seats, and the touch and feel of cool leather.

What Are the Options Available for Home Theater Seating?

The technology used to create the ultimate home theater setup has come a long way in recent years. Home theater seating has the same functions and support as movie theater chairs, but in a better, more extensive, and more customizable way. Their comfort and customization options have improved by leaps and bounds over recent years and paved the way for home theaters to become a must in any home that can house one.

When it comes to home theater seating accessories, you have lots of options. You can customize your home theater chairs to include power recline, adjustable headrests, stainless steel cup holders, LED lighting, variable armrest configurations, optional tray tables, tablet holders, and more.

The movie theater seats here at Greater Southern Home Recreation are built with high-quality, sturdy components to ensure that they will last for years and give you the reassurance of knowing you are purchasing a quality product.

Material choices

Your choice of material depends on how you will use your home theater seats, who will use them, and how often. For example, fabric chairs have a softer feel, while leather can be more durable and hold up better if you have young children or pets.

You will want to choose a fabric and color that compliments the aesthetic of your room. With several grades and colors of fabric and leather to choose from, our experts can help customize your home theater chair to best suit the needs of your room and your budget.


Movie theater seating allows you to recline while watching your favorite movies and programs. Some models even feature a push-button power recline so you can relax peacefully and effortlessly. Recliners will enable you to change position, which can relieve tension in your back from prolonged sitting.

A quality home theater chair is built with excellent lumbar and neck support, which allows you to relax in maximum comfort, even in full recline.

Our space-saving design allows seats to be placed mere inches away from a wall. This wall-hugger style is convenient when space is a concern. Ideally, you need 20’ x 13’ for your home movie theater. Choose your recliner size and style to match the aesthetics of your room.

Armrest options might include right-sided, left-sided, double armrests, or even armless chairs. Armless recliners can make excellent movie theater love seats which is great for couples or movie date night.

When shopping for a movie theater recliner, there are a few things to consider, such as:

  • Does it have a manual or power recline?
  • Does it have adjustable headrests?
  • Do I need a two or three-seat configuration?
  • What are the options for armrests?


Your movie theater seat wouldn’t be complete without some fun accessories to help improve the form and function of your home theater chair. Options include swivel table arms, tablet holders, LED cup holders, ground lighting, and push-button console controls.

Choosing the right accessories can turn your home theater chair into more than just a movie theater seat. Now you can watch, play, work, and enjoy the convenience of all the amenities you are used to in one relaxing space.

Where to Place Your Home Theater Seats

Deciding where to place your home theater seating is essential when planning your home theater setup and choosing which movie chair seat to purchase.

You should consider the size of your viewing space and take accurate measurements before making a purchase.

You will want to determine your optimum viewing distance by measuring your screen size and then multiplying the result by two. Your optimum viewing distance will tell you where your home theater seating should start. This process may take some trial and error on your part, but going through this process is an essential step to create your optimal home viewing experience.

If you have multiple rows of movie theater seats, you will also want to consider the viewing angle for each seat. The human eye comfortably views objects within 40 degrees vertically, so you will want to make sure to allow for that when planning your home theater layout.

It’s no fun if you can’t see over someone in a movie theater, and you wouldn’t want that to happen at home either.

In a dedicated viewing room, your home theater seating should be the focal point of the entire room. Sometimes, you may only have limited space to work with, depending on the location of your viewing experience.

Whether your home theater is set up in a dedicated viewing room or a limited space, it is good to consider all the elements that will occupy that space and carefully plan things beforehand.
