3 Brands and Products to Add to Your Home Media Rooms: Part 1

Though we love everything about home theaters – from installing them for others to enjoying them in our residences – there is something about the way home media rooms bring families together. In fact, we’ve seen many San Antonio, Boerne and Hill Country, TX, homeowners eschew the more traditional theater concept recently in favor of a multifaceted family space, complete with gaming systems, wine bars, communal seating or anything else the homeowner might conjure up during the concept phase.

At Sterling Home Technologies, we know that specifications mean everything when designing rooms, and many more variables go into a home media room setup. For example, you might be dealing with a more-open concept space and have to account for noise with acoustic treatments.
