Home Theater Seating: 7 Shopping Mistakes to Avoid

If one thing sucks the fun out of buying home theater seating, it’s buyer’s remorse. The best way to avoid any unpleasant surprises is to know where most people make mistakes and how to avoid them.

We have organized 7 of the most common issues that people overlook to help avoid buyer’s remorse and prevent costly errors.

Home Theater Seating: 7 Shopping Mistakes to Avoid

Here is where people go wrong when buying home theater seating


#1 – Disregarding Sightlines

Shoppers often get excited about the styles and features of their home theater furniture but forget about functionality. Sightlines are the direct visual angles a viewer has to the screen. The screen placement and the distance the furniture is from the screen are essential elements of good sightlines.

The viewer’s height is also a factor, as is their preference for home theater seating positions. For example, some people like to recline in a home theater seat, whereas others prefer to cuddle up on a chaise-style lounger.

With multiple rows and options for home theater seats, sightlines can be an oversight when placing your order. But you don’t have to renovate your room to improve sightlines to your screen.

This is a Riser Setup Diagram | Home Theater Seating.

After properly adjusting your screen height and the optimum furniture distance, increase sightlines with two convenient options— Home Theater Riser Platforms or Tiered Home Theater Seating by Seatcraft.

Both are available on

These options help raise the row to see past the headrest and the person in the row ahead, giving the best view to the screen. Layering complimentary home theater seating styles also helps maintain sightlines while catering to various heights and viewing preferences.

#2 – Overcrowding Home Theater Seating

Space planning is one of the most problematic elements of purchasing home theater furniture. People often can’t judge the dimensions of their room, never mind the size of the home theater seating they intend to use.

The result is overcrowding of the furniture in the theater room with little space to recline or safely move around.

Shoppers should first calculate the width and length of their home theater. Then, using the dimensions provided by Seatcraft, determine the footprint of the home theater seat, both upright and in the reclined position. Next, consider the number of home theater seats needed, plus the desired seating configuration. Finally, leave space at the sides and between rows for everyone to comfortably move around the room regardless of the seating’s position.

Remember, curved rows take up more space than straight ones, although curved rows are better for sightlines.

We recommend leaving a minimum of 3 feet between each row-end and the wall and a minimum of 4 feet between reclining home theater seating. For more help designing your home theater room, use Audio Advice Home Theater Designer to enter dimensions and plot optimum spacing.

#3 – Buying Low-Quality Home Theater Seating

Buying Low-Quality Home Theater Seating

Budget constraints could lead shoppers to purchase low-quality or cheap home theater seating. It’s certainly tempting to save money wherever possible.

The truth is, buyer’s remorse is far more likely when poor quality seating breaks and the shopper has to replace the furniture much sooner than planned. A frugal mentality can also diminish the overall experience in your home theater.

The buyer can miss out on new technology, convenience, and optimized features that enhance their home theater seating. Poor quality can also lead to more waste in landfills!

It turns substandard quality ends up costing buyers more in the long run, leaving them to wish they had purchased better quality home theater seating in the first place.

#4 – Inadequate Power Requirements

Don't miss the best home theater experience because of inadequate power requirements.

A fully equipped home theater has many electrical requirements. It includes a big screen, possibly a projector, surround sound stereo equipment, and home theater seating with all the bells and whistles.

Nothing kills the mood faster than having a breaker blow or your new Soundshaker seats not working due to inadequate electrical wiring.

Verifying the outlets have enough electrical juice to deliver all the power requirements is frequently bypassed until installation. Of course, by then, there’s no option but to wait for an electrician to create a dedicated circuit for your theater room by then.

Seatcraft home theater seating offers daisy chain electrical ability to optimize the row’s power and help eliminate excess cords.

For the best home theater experience, it is wise to consult with audiovisual and home theater seating experts to discuss the proper electrical requirements. Then have the electrician in before your furniture and equipment arrive.

For audiovisual expertise, contact Audio Advice. For home theater seating expertise, contact Seatcraft Customer Service.

#5 – Price Shopping Over Brand Awareness

Everyone wants the best deal possible when they are making a large purchase. Unfortunately, some companies only focus on making the sale. While they offer a great price, their pushy sales tactics and lack of product knowledge leave a lot to be desired.

The mistake is getting lured in by the ‘deal’ and sacrificing product warranty or shipping options to get it. So they walk away with your money, and you are on your own after that point.

Developing a trusting relationship with Seatcraft means not only are you supported through every stage of your purchase, you will also get the most value for your money— including the best price.

#6 – Lack of Research With Pros in the Know

Getting bad advice from the wrong people is one of the worst mistakes shoppers make, no matter what they purchase. Unfortunately, with the internet full of opinions and guidance, you can quickly get swayed in the wrong direction.

When it comes to home theater seating, you want to learn all the dos and don’ts with true experts. But, unfortunately, shoppers can have some nasty surprises waiting for them without proper research from reliable sources.

Seatcraft educates its customers through live customer service professionals, sales consultants, instructional YouTube videos and delivers exactly on its promises. Seatcraft never oversells what you don’t need or want. They continue to support you through every question, purchase, installation, and maintenance for years to come. Plus, with over 40 years of experience, Seatcraft is the expert in the field of home theater seats.

#7 – Poorly Planned Home Theater Budget

When shopping for home theater seating, the last common mistake is not making a well-thought-out budget and sticking to it.

Home theaters have many components that require special attention and an adequate dollar figure budgeted for each. So, if one element has overspending or a lack of planning, other areas will suffer. Rebalancing the budget means there is less money to spend elsewhere. The overall result is a less than pleasing home theater that doesn’t satisfy the dream.

By doing the proper research with ‘pros in the know’, you can budget accordingly. Space planning, electrical requirements, audiovisual equipment, and home theater seating will have a proper plan to set in motion.

The proper budget also leaves room for spending wisely on quality and value over flashy sales and cheap seats. Protect your budget by purchasing your home theater seats with Seatcraft as a long-term investment.

The end result is a home theater that looks, sounds, and feels as fabulous as you hoped.

Home Theater Seating: What to Know When Shopping


Shopping for your home theater seating raises a lot of questions. It’s an important purchase, and there are several factors to consider. We will run through the frequently asked questions that pop up before making a confident Seatcraft home theater seating purchase.

To make it easier, we have grouped the FAQs into categories.

When You First Start Shopping For Home Theater Seating…

Home Theater Seating

The most exciting part of buying theater seating for your home theater is picturing the latest designs and technology in your space, ready for the best home entertainment experience. Once you begin shopping, you will find many Seatcraft chairs, loveseats, sofas, and sectionals to consider for your home.

Here are common questions people have when they start shopping at

What type of home theater seating will suit my home?

There are several Seatcraft home theater seating styles to choose from, and to understand which style suits you best, read Home Theater Furniture – A Buyer’s Guide to Six Styles.

Can I order a home theater sofa or loveseat configurations?

Yes, most of our chairs can be configured into loveseat and sofa configurations. Please note that with armless chairs and certain loveseat configurations that the location of the recline switch will now be located between the seats.

Please note that in most cases the USB port will no longer be available due to the location of the switch. USB charging ports are only included in control panels that are located in armrests, not between seats.

Do you offer your home theater seats as single recliners?

Yes. Our most popular home theater seating styles are available as single recliners. They require a $99 shipping fee per seat and do not qualify for free shipping.

How much space do I need for back row home theater seating?

For standard products, you will need a minimum 28″ opening for your doorway, hallway, or stairway. Backrow theater seating will need a maximum doorway opening of 36″ for most larger products.

You will also have to lift and tilt the home theater seating through your doorway, stairway, or hallway. If your doorway leads into a tight hallway, measure your hallway has over 36″ of width.

How do I shop for theater seating accessories?

After taking note of all the latest accessories on the website, make a checklist of your must-haves. As you look at each home theater seating brand, compare the included accessories to your list as well as the available upgrades. Check off your list by choosing the seat style and selecting any upgraded accessories for your order. Not seeing what you want? Go to the next question.

Can the lighting on the cupholders and LED base lights be controlled separately?

The lighting for the cupholders and base lighting is connected to the same power supply. Turning the switch on and off will turn both the cupholder lighting and the base lighting on and off at the same time.

Do you take custom orders from home theater seating or media lounge sofas?

We offer an expanded list of colors and options with our “Your Choice by Seatcraft” program. Customization does not include custom sizes of individual chairs. Due to the custom nature of these products they require an extensive lead time to build and ship them.

If you want your furniture quickly please consider ordering one of the many products we have available to ship in 24 hours.

How far should my seats and media lounge furniture be from my screen?

People often choose the biggest screen that they can fit into their homes, but if your room is smaller then you might want to go with a smaller screen size. A general guideline is to sit between 1.5 to 2.5 times the diagonal screen measurement away from your screen, with about a 30-degree viewing angle from your seated position.

For example, if you have a 40″ TV, you should be sitting somewhere between 5 and 8.3 feet from the screen. Just keep in mind that viewing distance recommendations are a general guide and it’s largely a matter of personal preference.

Will home theater seats work in small spaces?

Absolutely! Seatcraft developed Spacesaver home theater seating to provide all the luxurious perks while taking up less valuable space. These seats also fit easier through narrow doorways.

What are Spacesaver home theater seats?

Spacesaver means the theater seats are created with slightly thinner inside armrests to create a smaller footprint for the overall row size that is configured. You can now fit more seats in a smaller space, and the seats you have will make the space feel bigger.

I want more than one row of seats. Should I order a riser for the back row to ensure they can see over the front row?

Depending on room size and the height your television is mounted, you may need additional height for clear sightlines to your screen. Again, customer service can help determine if Riser Platforms or BACKROW Theater Seating are the right choices for your theater room.

Our risers come in either 7″ or 14″ in height. We offer these risers in multiple carpet colors. We also have tiered seating with the risers built onto the base of the seats.

What is the difference between curved and straight rows?

Straight rows are exactly that; seats arranged in a straight line. These seats consume less space than a curved row, but users on the ends of wider straight rows may suffer a bit of screen visibility. Curved rows are arranged in an arc or “c” shape. While users on the ends will have a better view, these rows take up more space than a straight row.

What is the difference between motion and non-motion furniture?

Motion furniture consists of any chair, sofa, or loveseat that has a recline function. Non-Motion furniture has no recline functionality whatsoever.

Can I get out of my seat while it’s in the recline position?

We do not recommend getting out of the chair while it’s reclined. Please make sure the seat is in a closed and upright position before getting out of the chair. This will avoid damage to the chair.

Constructing Home Theater Seating

Constructing Home Theater Seating

Advancements in design and technology help Seatcraft stand out when people are comparison shopping. But, the proof is in the pudding, so they say. The following questions help answer shopper’s burning questions about construction elements and upholstery options.

Do the home theater seats connect to each other?

Each theater seat is free-standing and can support itself without the need to connect to another chair. They simply slide next to each other to form a row. Each seat includes rubber foot pads that can be attached to the bottom of each seat to help them stay stationary on almost any type of flooring. These rubber feet also help protect your flooring.

What type of springs do you use in your furniture?

Seatcraft furniture has pocketed-coil springs consisting of several metal coils or springs, each individually wrapped in a fabric “pocket” or sleeve. These springs distribute weight across the seat surface for lasting comfort and durability.

How strong is the frame in Seatcraft home theater seats?

Seatcraft uses kiln-dried hardwood for sturdy, long-lasting use in all our seats. In addition, this technique prevents cracks or weakness due to varying humidity and climates.

What is the difference between HR Foam & Memory Foam?

HR, or High-Resilence, Foam is a polyurethane foam with much higher responsiveness than memory foam with a slower response and provides more support than memory foam. Memory Foam provides pressure relief as it contours to the body, using your own body heat and pressure to conform to your shape.

I hear the term “leather match” used in the industry. What is a leather match, and does Seatcraft use it?

The term “leather match” refers to the coordination of leather pieces used on the different components of a seat to the upholstery used on the non-visible details. Not only does Seatcraft harmonize all leather and upholstery for a seamless look, but we also save the finest, high-quality leather pieces for the seat’s visible parts, including the front, back, sides, and headrest. As a result, every component of the leather upholstery matches in quality, texture, and color.

What is Bella Fabric?

Bella fabric is an exceptionally smooth, silky material that is easy to maintain and projects a warm, inviting aura. Instantly soft to the touch, it’s available in several solid color options that will match any theater decor. In addition, this fabric will caress your frame, transporting you to a state of relaxation in moments.

What is Grade 7000 Leather?

Seatcraft’s Leather 7000 is the very finest leather available for your home theater seating. This exclusive, luxury upholstery is a top-grain leather painstakingly hand-picked from the top 30% of all hides and chosen for its consistent premium look and texture.

What is the difference between companies’ leather 6000, 9000, 8000, etc.?

Each company standardizes its leather upholstery differently. For example, one company’s leather 5000 may be of better quality than another’s 8000 top grain leather. The most important detail to watch for is whether the leather is “top grain” and whether the company stands behind its leather quality.

How is leather upholstery graded?

Leather upholstery falls into four category grades. First, Full Grain Leather is impractical for furniture use as it is inflexible, rough, and not treated. Top Grain Leather is the best you can find for furniture and has a light protective coating that increases the lifespan of the leather. Next, Split Grain or Bonded Leather is a leather hybrid that combines the benefits of polyurethane with the texture and looks of leather. Finally, Synthetic Leather has proven to be a better option than bonded leather with the advent of synthetic materials.

What is leather gel?

Leather Gel is leather infused with fibrous materials resulting in significantly better wear and hydrolysis ratings than other artificial leathers. In addition, with its current construction and backing, this material is breathable but also easy to clean.

Will the color I select match the picture on your website?

The majority of our products, including Seatcraft, Cavallo, and SoundRight are photographed in a professional studio setting and then vetted by our product team prior to posting on our sites. We are very confident in the accuracy of the photos versus the physical product.

While the majority of our customers do not request a physical material swatch sample, you may order a free material swatch sample from the product page to view the color and feel of the material for yourself before ordering your home theater seating.

With phones and computer screens having different color and resolution settings, it’s nearly impossible to ensure color and image consistency online. Order some free swatch samples and see them in person to feel confident in your decision.

Do you offer material and leather samples?

Yes, Seatcraft offers free upholstery samples shipped to you FREE of charge. Click here to order.

What About Delivering My New Home Theater Seats…

Delivering Your New Home Theater Seats

Home theater seating is no small delivery, and customers are eager to get their furniture delivered in one piece as quickly as possible. There are a few factors to consider, though, so here are some typical questions around delivery, including timelines and damaged items.

How much is Shipping? Do you offer Free Shipping?

We offer free shipping on home theater sectionals, multimedia sofas, multimedia loveseats, media lounge sofas, home theater seat accessories, and orders of 2 or more on home theater seats.

Free shipping is excluded on single recliners, all theater decor, and single home theater seats. Shipping on other products may vary.

Where do you ship? ships anywhere in the contiguous United States. We also ship to Hawaii, Alaska, or internationally for a fee.

For international orders, we always recommend shipping to a shipping terminal within the United States, and then the customer can coordinate the ocean freight.

What are my shipping and delivery options?

We offer curbside delivery and white glove delivery for all our furniture products.

How does Curbside Delivery work?

Curbside delivery orders take about 10 business days to be shipped from our warehouse to your local distribution center. Once the distribution center receives your order, they will call you within 2-3 business days to coordinate a day and time for delivery to your home.

Our customer service team can only refer to the tracking number on your shipping confirmation email if the order has shipped within the last 10 business days, as they can’t expedite the process any faster. Because curbside delivery requires an 18-wheeler to deliver to your home, your order will be delivered to the end of the curb. You’re responsible for moving your order into your home, assembly, and removal of any packaging material.

The delivery agent is not allowed to bring your order into your home or to climb any steps. Rural and heavily-urban addresses please take note of the closest curb to your home that is accessible by a semi-truck with a trailer. Garages are considered in-home delivery and are not included in curbside delivery.

How does White Glove Delivery work?

For customers who want more than curbside delivery, and for customers that want unboxing and assembly of their products, they can upgrade to white glove delivery at the time of their purchase. We likely cannot upgrade from curbside delivery to white glove delivery once your order has shipped. You may request this upgrade after your order has shipped, but please be aware that you are responsible for any shipment reroute fees, which can be a minimum of $100 or can be much higher depending on the freight carrier.

Just like curbside delivery, it will take about 10 business days for your order to be received by your local distribution center. Then the white glove delivery agent will receive it within 2 business days. Once the white glove delivery agent has possession of your order, they will call you within 2-3 business days to coordinate a date and time for delivery to your home.

Upon delivery to your home, the white glove delivery agent will bring your order into the room of your choice (and a maximum of either up or down one flight of stairs), unbox and assemble your items, and dispose of all the excess packaging.

Do you offer scheduled delivery?

Our curbside delivery or white glove delivery agents will reach out to you to schedule a day and time for delivery to your home.

Delivery appointments are typically scheduled in a 4-hour window on normal business hours Monday–Friday 8am to 5pm. Weekend deliveries are not available. Delivery drivers will not show up without calling ahead to set an appointment.

How heavy are the seats? Can I lift them myself? 

Each theater seat weighs anywhere from 100 lbs to 200 lbs. Sofas, loveseats, and sectionals can be anywhere from 200 lbs to 400 lbs. It’s highly recommended that you have at least 1-2 other people to help you move your new home theater seating into your home. With most seats, 2 capable adults should be sufficient to take them into your home. With sofas and loveseats, it may require 3-4 capable adults to transport the products into your home.

If you are unable to move the products yourself or with a friend, white glove delivery is highly recommended. Please request this service prior to placing your order.

Do you have items in stock for immediate delivery?

You bet!  Any product labeled ‘Ships in 24 Hours’ is in-stock in our warehouse and ready to ship at any time. Order by 2 PM Sunday through Thursday, and we will ship your home theater seating within 24 hours. Orders placed on Friday or Saturday will be processed the following business day. Orders placed the day before a national holiday will be processed the next business day. Specific loveseat configurations take 48 hours to prepare and ship. If you order accessories with your home theater seats, they will ship as soon as they become available.

You can find all of them here. Any item that is marked as “shipping within 24 hours” will be shipped within 1 business day.

When will my order ship?

In-stock items typically ship within 1 business day. Orders placed on the weekend will be processed on the closest following business day. For custom orders, backorders, or orders that require additional lead time, please refer to the estimated ship date in your order confirmation email. Once your order has shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number that you can use to track your order online.

Will I be notified my delivery is on its way?

When your items reach your local terminal, the delivery company will call to schedule delivery. White Glove deliveries go to a local agent, who then schedules the date and time to deliver your items.

I would like to add white glove delivery, but my order has already shipped. Is it possible to change the shipping on my order?

We cannot upgrade your order from curbside delivery to white glove delivery once your order has already shipped.

You may request the upgrade to white glove delivery but please be aware that any shipment rerouting fees, which is a minimum of $100 but can be much higher depending on the freight carrier, will be the full responsibility of the customer. Any change in delivery method or carrier will also create longer lead times and delivery delays for the customer.

My tracking information has an estimated delivery date. Is this the date the order would arrive at my home?

The estimated delivery date on your tracking information is the estimated date your order would arrive at the freight carrier’s local distribution center, not at your home.

It takes about 10 business days for the order to be received by the local distribution center. Within 2-3 business days, you will receive a call from the freight delivery agent to schedule a specific delivery date to your home. White glove delivery typically takes 1-2 business days more.

What do I do if my furniture is damaged during delivery?

Please take pictures of any damage as your items get delivered. Pictures are required for any replacement items or replacement products.

Have the delivery driver mark on the freight bill which items were damaged or missing. Any damages or shortages must be noted on the freight bill. We cannot accept reports of freight damages or freight shortages after 48 hours of receipt.
