Modern Home Theater Style
The sleek modern home theater style can be a smart addition for your house. To create a modern home theater style, you’ll typically focus on furniture and accessories with the look of the 1950s and 60s. This typically includes sleek shapes and clean lines. It tends to be a minimalist, uncluttered look that focuses on practical functionality, although it can have an industrial or “space age” look that can complement a home theater room. To incorporate modern technology with a retro look, you’ll want to choose low furniture in neutral colors, highlighted with glass and chrome. A large LCD or plasma TV can easily be incorporated into such a look. People who are interested in modern home theaters usually are interested in having rooms in their homes that contain devices such as television, computers, stereo systems, and speakers.
While authentic pieces from mid-century can be re-purposed to hold 21st century electronics, you’ll want to make sure that television stands or cabinets are large enough and contains spaces for the many cords required by most electronics to pass through. Since most furniture from this era was not designed for modern purposes, you may find that new furniture that is made to look like it is from the 50s and 60s is less expensive and more practical. The modern style is still very popular, and many designs have been adapted to fit in a modern home theater.
