Entertainment: In Your Face
Immerse yourself in the lap of luxury
Home theaters are so popular that they are almost becoming a standard in new home construction. However, the definition of home theater has dramatically changed since they first started appearing on homeowners’ wish lists. Now, when clients come to us asking for a custom home theater installation, we must first ask the question; “Do you want a custom-built, committed home theater, or a multi-use home theater installation?”
Dedicated Home Theater
Your own private cinema
This is what most people envision when thinking of a home theater. Theaters have historically been delegated to the basement to maximize acoustic and lighting benefits. Thanks to innovative products created within our industry, this has changed. A dedicated home theater can be established anywhere in the home. With proper sound absorbing materials installed within or to the walls, ceilings, and floors, acoustic difficulties are no longer problematic. With easy-to-use lighting control systems and automatic remote controlled blackout shades, improper lighting also ceases to be problematic.
The major consideration when choosing dedicated space for your custom home theater installation would be, what room in your house makes the most sense to you? Guardian Systems will completely cater to your needs and choices. We use in-wall speakers and subwoofers, to help keep your theater clean and modern. We do not believe in “box theaters.” We have the ability and willingness to work around any obstacles your home has in order to obtain your desired results.
Multi-Use Home Theater
Versatility for your home’s needs
Those of you who do not have the extra space or are simply not willing to give up the space for a dedicated home theater installation now have very viable options. In a well-designed and well-executed multi-use home theater, a visitor would have no idea they were sitting and talking in the middle of the family’s home theater. Cutting edge creative products have made it possible to completely disguise all signs of a home theater installation by discreetly integrating it into your home’s décor. Now that is total home theater customization!
Speakers can be inconspicuously built right into the walls with either paint or wallpaper applied right over them. A family favorite painting can be converted onto a special canvas that will remotely roll down discreetly hiding a large plasma, surrounded by a frame of your choice. Blackout shades are custom made to your specifications to not only offer you aesthetically pleasing window treatments, but to also serve as part of your theater’s optimal lighting design.
Ease of Use
Simplicity in form, powerful in function
Guardian Systems believes that simplicity is key to frequency of use and procuring the greatest enjoyment level possible. In other words, if you feel your home theater is too complicated, you won’t use it! It is because of our commitment to creating an easy-to-use system that our custom home theaters feature personalized, custom control systems for simplified operation. The touch of one button can dim the lights, open the curtains to reveal the screen, set the optimal volume level, and display crystal clear video. It really is as simple as that.
Guardian Systems was chosen as a Parade of Homes Winner for our Home Theater System showcased at the Marymont Springs Parade of Homes in 2008, as well as Best Home Theater and Best Home Electronics in the 2011 Annandale Parade of Homes!
The Parade of Homes is an annual event sponsored by the Capital Region Builders & Remodelers Association.
