Home theater carpet can help with the acoustics of your space.

Home theaters are becoming a marquee feature of many homes—the added entertainment value they provide appeals to many homeowners, and they may even add to the resale value of a home. If you're planning to upgrade an existing home theater or install a new one in your home, you'll likely want to explore the plentiful options for home theater carpet ideas.

The size and scale of your home theater will likely help you decide on some important design considerations. For example, many homeowners with a smaller space dedicated to a home theater or media room will prefer to keep it simple and feature more of a "family room" style layout. They may choose to use an array of couches and chairs for seating, and traditional plush carpeting on the floors, where it provides both comfort and a sound-dampening effect (this is especially important if the media room is located on an upper floor of the home). Smaller home theaters don't feature carpeting at all in some instances, or homeowners may opt for large area rugs as opposed to wall-to-wall carpeting.

Conversely, homeowners whose plan is to emulate a movie-house experience in their home theater tend to go all-out when it comes to their designs. Stadium-style seating is not at all uncommon, with guests' chairs featuring an array of conveniences and accessories, from cup holders and trays to vibration or movement features that are triggered when the action onscreen gets particularly intense. Enormous projection screens or TVs and elaborate lighting and sound systems are often paired with the cinema-style decor, and it's not uncommon to find popcorn machines or even full concession stands in these meticulously themed spaces.

The same rules tend to apply when it comes to carpeting in cinema-themed home theaters—carpets are often specifically chosen to reflect a movie-house feel. There are both online and brick-and-mortar home theater specialty stores that offer this type of carpeting in a range of styles and pricing tiers. If you're planning a home theater design that will feature carpeting that would be right at home a the local megaplex, you'll want to ensure that it will also do double duty for you as a sound-dampening tool. Carpets that are a bit more plush tend to do this job better than their thinner cousins, so keep an eye out for samples with a bit more heft—they may spare you complaints from other rooms in the house when the subwoofer kicks in during a climactic action scene.
