The Perfect Seating for Home Theaters and Media Rooms

Home theater seating has come a long way in the past few decades. You can enhance your home media experience with everything from commercial-style theater seating, plush reclining seats, or multimedia sectionals and sofas. Some even come loaded with built-in accessories like powered recline, powered headrests, lighted cup holders, and armrest storage, all designed for comfort and convenience. We’ve highlighted some important points to consider when thinking about buying theater seating for a media room or home theater.

Media Room or Home Theater?

If you’re wondering which one is right for your lifestyle, it’s important to keep in mind that a home theater is a room dedicated exclusively to movie and TV viewing. A media room is more of a family room with a visual and/or audio media focus. A big-screen TV is often the centerpiece, usually accompanied by a nice sound system as well. You and your guests will spend much of your time in front of the screen, so it’s important to choose the proper theater seating for your room’s size and layout. You’ll also want these items to be as comfortable as possible. That’s a given.

Media Room
If space you’ve chosen doubles as a living room, or if it might include areas for board or video games, billiards, a pinball machine, and maybe a small bar, then you’ll obviously want to go this route. Your decor can be more tied-in with the rest of your house since this room won’t necessarily need to adhere to a traditional theater-style. You might want to outfit the space with light-blocking curtains or blinds and muted wall paint to help enhance the movie-watching experience when it happens.

Multimedia sectionals are perfect for media rooms since they more closely resemble furniture found in most family rooms, and their modular design can be altered to fit your lifestyle. The Seatcraft Heavenly modular sofa features a host of possible configurations, allowing you to move all pieces to either side for any space or occasion.

A host of recliners, theater seats, and media lounge sofas are perfect for media rooms because of the many options and styles. It makes matching your decor a snap as well. For instance, the Cavallo Media Lounge Sofas bridge the gap between extended media viewing and living room relaxation. These comfy chaise lounges, ottomans, and loveseats provide you with plenty of choices to complete your ideal media room experience.

Home Theater
A home theater that strives to recreate a true theater experience usually requires a bit more specialized focus on design, furnishings, and the ability to have complete lighting control. This is especially true if your home theater is in a separate area, like a bonus room, spare bedroom, or fully finished basement. Theater seating — whether commercial-style seats, recliners in one row or tiered in multiple rows — usually remain fixed in one place. However, there are plenty of options to fit just about any space you have.

Besides recliners — this is true for both home theaters and media rooms — you may choose to include media lounge sofas, loveseats, or sectionals. Adding items such as acoustical panels, columns and wall accents, stages and curtains, or fiber-optic star panels all act to round out the home theater experience. All of these accessories should work in just about any size room.

Comfort Is Key
The common necessity that all home theaters and media rooms share is comfort. In addition to cozy recliners, you might want to include plush furnishings, throw pillows, blankets, and soft lighting. If you have windows, be sure to cover them with light-blocking blinds or curtains.

Theater seat recliners in recent years have come a long way — they’re a breed apart from the easy chairs of your dad and granddad’s era. The Seatcraft Apex, for example, has a powered headrest, lumbar support, and recline. Standard features include SoundShakers, USB charging stations, LED armrest accents, storage, and more.

Whether you choose to create a home theater or media room, has all you need to create your own place for movie and TV watching with family and friends. Selecting just the right combination of seating and accessories can be an exciting experience all its own. With so many options available, it’s easy to put your unique mark on your entertainment space!

How to Clean and Maintain Your Home Theater

You’ve put in blood, sweat, tears, and hours to create the perfect home theater including your favorite Seatcraft chairs so now it’s time to take note on how to keep up appearances. Cleaning and maintaining your home theater can make all the difference when it comes to your movie viewing experience.

Running Audio Cables

Managing your audio cables improves sound as well as tidies up the space. Try to keep your cable runs as short as possible. Metal connectors are a more beneficial option over bare-wire ends. To avoid clutter, consider purchasing a sleeve to bundle cables together for a cleaner look. Another tactic is to run the wires behind baseboards to obscure them almost completely. Need more cable clutter fixes?

Speaker Cleaning
If your speakers are in a wood cabinet, know what type of wood you are working with to choose the proper cleaner. Knowing the finish will help you pick a solution that isn’t too harsh and might damage the wood. Do not use glass, bathroom, or kitchen cleaners. Oils are ideal for real wood while varnishes are used for vinyl or plywood.

When cleaning, use a soft cloth or cotton t-shirt instead of a paper towel that will leave behind white particles. If you’re cleaning away dust, a dry cloth will suffice. But if you are using an oil or varnish, have a wet cloth as well as a dry cloth. Use the cloth with solution first and then dry the area with the second, clean cloth.

A/V Cleaning
Dust, dirt, and pet hair can do long lasting damage to your A/V equipment so it’s important to keep up on maintenance. Make sure everything is ‘off’ before you begin cleaning. Only use spray cleaners meant for electronics. Switches should be cleaned with soft brushes as opposed to feather dusters. Do not use cleaners with harsh alcohols as they can damage your A/V equipment.

Projector Cleaning

If you have a television in your home theater, there are a few tips to keep the screen clean. Sprays can be harsh and leave behind streaks so stick to light dusting.

Most likely, you have a projector in your theater. It’s a good idea to clean your projector every time you change the light bulb or clean the air filter. Before cleaning, make sure the projector is unplugged and has cooled off completely. Before replacing the bulb or air filter, clean the vents of dust and pet hair. Much like with A/V cleaning, use a soft or microfiber cloth to clean the lens on the projector. A wet eyeglass wipe is another viable option for the lens. If you have used cleaning products, be sure to allow the projector to dry for at least 30 minutes.

Don’t forget about the screen! If the picture still isn’t clear after you have cleaned out your projector, you may have an issue with the screen. Check with the manufacturer for specific cleaning instructions, but it’s typically safe to use a dry cloth or warm water to wipe down the screen.

Seat Cleaning

Cleaning your favorite Seatcraft chair is not difficult, but it’s vital for longevity in your home theater. If you’ve chosen leather chairs, be sure to avoid placing them in direct sunlight, which can fade and damage the material. Use a moist cloth to wipe down the seats regularly for dirt and dust. Do not use harsh chemicals, which can cause the leather to fade.

Don’t let all of your efforts go to waste. Cleaning and maintaining your theater can make all the difference in your movie experience. Follow these tips we have assembled and you will be sure to enjoy your Seatcraft chairs and home theater for years to come.

Moving in Together? How to Get Rid of His Favored Old Chair

You know what they say, his treasure is her mess! Moving in together is a big step in any relationship, but it can also be tricky. Is his favorite, old chair clashing with your fuzzy throw pillows? Don’t panic. Just scroll down for some easy tips and suggestions on how to build a home as unique as your relationship!

Step 1: Set Some Ground Rules
If you’ve reached the stage in your relationship where you feel ready to move in with your significant other then you should be able to tell them that their TV chair makes it seem like bear with a bad hair day has taken up residence in your living room, right? Absolutely! Just make sure that you are respectful about it. The worst thing you can do is to throw out the words “it’s ugly” because your partner could take that as a personal insult. Instead, use “I” statements. Rephrasing your thoughts into something like, “I don’t like it because I think it doesn’t work with the rest of the room” will drive your same point home while making it less confrontational.

Keep in mind that your significant other might have different interests than you, and those interests will manifest themselves in your home life. If your partner would rather watch TV while you’d prefer to snuggle up with a good book, discuss ways in which you can both be happy. That might mean adding a reading light to your couch or dividing the space up so you can multitask separately. Whatever the solution might be, discussing your differences before they create conflict is a great way to making your transitions into one home go smoothly!

Step 2: Compromise!
Living with someone takes a little bit of patience and a whole lot of compromise, especially when deciding what stays and what goes. Here are some strategies that can help you navigate your way through it!

First of all, decide on a number of items that each one of you are allowed to bring to the mix. This will help both you and your partner narrow everything down to the must-haves you can’t live without. Is your significant other set on displaying the ugly bookcase he bought with his first paycheck? Take a deep breath and let it be. You can take comfort in the fact that your prized collection of succulents will brighten it up!

Next, tackle all the duplicates. If both of you have nice couches but there’s only room for one in the living room choose the one that best fits the space. In this case, bigger is definitely better! Don’t try and cram two people in furniture that was intended for one.

In situations where you simply can’t decide whose furniture would be a better fit, sell both sets! Host a garage sale with everything you can’t agree on and whatever else you might not be taking with you to your new home. Use the money you receive to buy something more adaptable to the space (and that you both love). It can even be something that brings you closer together, like a cuddle couch tailored to couples such as yourselves. You can also choose to save the money from your combined garage sale to go on vacation! Moving in together can be stressful, and a small vacation is the perfect way to reconnect and remind yourselves of why you’ve chosen to take this step in your relationship.

Or, if he’s a sports or gaming fanatic, splurge to find him the perfect chair or sectional for complete comfort! Looking for a chair and a chaise? Seatcraft offers an all-in-one option. Meet the Grenada. Complete with a chaiselounger footrest, lighted cupholders, and leather gel, he may not even look up as you explain you’re headed out on your 3rd shopping trip of the week.

Maybe he’s more into the bells and whistles? You can’t do any better than the Seatcraft Equinox. With adjustable power lumbar, headrest, and recline, it’s love at first seat. If he wants a fully immersive movie and gaming experience, add the SoundShaker and he will see it, hear it, and feel it. The most important thing when moving in with together is to keep an open mind. Yes, it might feel overwhelming to find someplace to store his abundance of Star Wars figurines but remember that he might be feeling just as overwhelmed by the amount of hair you shed in the shower. It’s a give and take process, so give a little and take your relationship to a whole new level. You can do it!

Why Build A Home Theater?

Building a home theater can be a daunting task. The time, money, and effort invested can be considerable, if you want to do it just right. Despite this, more and more people are now installing home theaters in their homes, for the simple reason that the return on the investment eventually far outweighs the initial cost. As movie theaters become less and less attractive, ticket prices skyrocket, and home audiovisual technology quickly catches up to what is available in your average theater, the home theater option becomes an excellent alternative. Some advantages to building a home theater are obvious, while others may take you by surprise. Listed below are ten excellent, persuasive reasons given by many as to why they built their own home theater:

COST: The prices of many consumer goods are skyrocketing far past the rate of inflation, and movie tickets are no exception. It is predicted that within five years, adult ticket prices will land at $20–and for movie buffs who like seeing a new movie a week on average, that’s going to translate to a huge hole in their wallets. If you have a family, costs are going to be even higher. Defenders of the theater experience often cite the large screen and superior sound systems that theaters provide: but just how close are home theaters now to matching this? Answer: with jumbo flat screens and 5.1 surround systems, very close.

CONTROL: This is your home theater, and with the ease of pushing a remote button, you can control the brightness, audio, subtitles, sound, contrast, or anything else to your own individual requirements. You can position just how close or far you sit, where to best place the 5.1 surround system, and much more.

NEVER MISS A FRAME: Have you ever had the urge to use the bathroom in the middle of a movie, but held it in for fear you would miss a key scene? Not at home–the pause and rewind buttons are now at your fingertips.

NOISE: The communal experience of watching a film with a large group of people used to be one of the upsides of the theater experience, but audiences these days are more inconsiderate than ever before. They talk and text on their cell phones, throw food around, and then shush the person next to them when they stop talking long enough to want to hear what’s going on. Who needs it?

INTIMACY: Getting intimate at the movies used to be another enjoyable facet of the theater experience, until everybody started to want to get in your business. Never have to worry about uncomfortable stares when you and your loved one just want to feel the romance.

DÉCOR: This one is an obvious advantage to a home theater–you are completely in charge of how your theater will look, right down to the carpeting, wall panels, paintings, speaker placement, accents and more. 4seating offers an array of these decor elements on our website, and can even help you custom-design the theater of your dreams.

YOU SAVE ON COST, PART II: The last time this author bought a single candy bar at a movie theater concession stand, he paid $4.50. Most movie theaters don’t allow you to bring food from home, because they make most of their money not from showing the film, but by gouging your pockets at the stand. Never have to feel guilty again about sneaking in food, just because you don’t want to pay $6 for a below-average hot dog. Bring your own snacks to your home theater–or even eat dinner on a tray table attached to your seat–snacks that are way cheaper, to boot.

PRIME SEATING: Attend the screening of a popular movie on opening weekend and chances are, you will be sitting in the nosebleed aisles, straining your neck just to see what’s going on. Wait until it’s out on DVD/Blu-Ray, and you can be front-and-center to the action every time, with a full theater setup at your disposal. Even better, with the groundbreaking online premiere of The Interview, other movies may soon find their way to online premieres, which means that with a simple hookup of your tablet or laptop to your screen, you can be there for the premiere right at home!

KIDS: Those of you with families know how hard it is at times to bring children to a movie. If they’re bored, they will want to get up, talk, and run around, bothering other audience members. With a home theater, your children will have the freedom to do as they please.

HOME THEATER SEATS ARE BEST: At the risk of tooting our own horn–but it’s very true, as anyone who has sat in one can attest–the kind of plush feel you get from a home theater seat is light years beyond even the best movie theater chairs. You can relax, recline, and utilize any number of convenient accessories (wine glass caddies, tablet holders) for an experience unlike any you will receive at an actual theater.

At, we have the largest selection of in-stock and ready-to-ship home theater seating and home theater furniture available! We offer theater seating and design solutions for both the casual and professional home theater enthusiast.  We also have a complete line of custom home theater decor available.

What to Know About Home Theater Recliners

When most homeowners start setting up a home theater or media room they tend to focus on electronics: big screen, projector system, surround sound, and lighting. Selecting the right home theater recliners is just as important as choosing superior audio and video components.No matter the size of your space and whether you want a single recliner or multiple rows, if you’re serious about your home theater or media room you’ll want to look for recliners that are durable and made with quality materials. After all, you’ll be using your home theater seating for hours at a time and many years to come. Most recliners also come loaded with features you may not be aware of.

Basic Recliner Types

Classic Recliner – This is the recliner your dad or grandad loved and may have spent many afternoons napping in. The key feature is a manual lever or button that reclines the back and positions the footrest up.

Rocker Recliner – Another manually adjustable recliner with a built-in rocker mechanism designed to rock back and forth in an arc. Most of these also have a swivel feature.

Glider Recliner – Similar to a rocker recliner, the seat glides back and forth on a straight path instead of an arc. Gliders are most popular in nurseries for new parents to rock babies to sleep.

Power Recliner – This is the most substantial of all recliners and features fully automatic reclining mechanisms instead of manual levers or buttons. Electronic controls give you precise positioning for back and footrest. Many of these also feature power adjustable headrests.

Theater Recliner Essential Features
Power recliners are the type of seating perfectly designed for home theaters, media rooms, and living rooms alike. Home theater single recliners offer the same wide array of features that seating rows, tiered seating recliners, and theater loveseats offer. Top grain leather, tray tables, in-arm storage, power recline, power lumbar, and headrest just to name a few. Whether you choose a traditional or contemporary style theater chair, you’re sure to find something that will look great in your family room, media room, or home theater.

A shining example of the perfect entry-level single recliner is the Seatcraft Monterey. It features most of the previously mentioned power options and is available in three top-grain leather colors. Additional features include a USB charging port, LED lighted cupholders, and ambient base lighting.

Soundshakers add an immersive sonic experience to home theater enjoyment. Integrated with your theater’s audio system, this bit of hi-tech wizardry transmits vibrations to your recliner in sync with the action on your screen. You’ll not only see and hear but feel each moment as your chair vibrates to each car chase or explosion.
The Seatcraft Kodiak includes this Soundshaker technology, along with adjustable power lumbar support.

The wall-hugger seating option allows the chair to sit just inches from the wall, even in full recline, furthering its efficient use of space. This is an important feature for single recliners in small living spaces or media rooms. It’s also perfect for multiple rows of theater seats to keep people in the front row from reclining into those behind them.

Materials and Durability
Durability starts with the frame. If you want your home theater seating to last through years of use, be sure your seats are made with the highest quality kiln-dried natural or engineered wood with blocked reinforced frame joint construction.

Upholstery is important, obviously, and should be durable and stylish. The Seatcraft leather recliners we feature are available in many different types. Leather 7000 is the very finest leather for home theater seating. This exclusive, luxury material is a type of top-grain leather that is painstakingly hand-picked for premium look and texture. Only the thickest, toughest, best looking, and most durable top-grain hides will do. The leather is then carefully buffed to remove any imperfections or variations in color and texture so that your home theater seat is tougher, more durable, and easier to maintain than any other material.

For those searching for the allure of leather, combined with the affordable value of other materials, bonded leather is an attractive alternative. It has the look and feels of genuine full-grain leather at a fraction of the cost. This is because bonded leather is made of a polyurethane-leather hybrid, which is more durable than fabric, while providing many of the same advantages in look, texture, and feel as full-grain leather. In addition, the material actually has more consistency than full-grain leather and is even easier to clean due to its non-porous material. Wipe with a damp cloth once a week, and it should look radiant for years to come.

Fabric upholstery is available in a wide range of main colors and coordinating piping colors. The Cavallo line of recliners features a plethora of leather and fabric materials. Fabric is a perfect choice for those looking for a multi-purpose material, as it’s renowned for projecting an informal, laid-back feel that is both warm and inviting. It is not limited by this reputation, however, as it can be fashioned into a dazzling array of texture, color, and pattern choices that can combine to mimic other fabrics with ease. The tough, resilient texture of burlap and the soft, velvety touch of suede can be equally replicated using fabric, at an outstanding value.

Recliners have come a long way since the classic manually adjustable seats of years past. Today, home theater seating comes in many styles and materials, and with advanced features that previous generations could only dream of. is committed to providing the best options for your home theater. Whether it’s a single recliner, multiple tiered rows, or media lounge sofas, we have all the seating and accessories you’ll need to make your experience the best it can be.

Product Spotlight: Seatcraft Colosseum Sofa/Loveseat

This month we’re spotlighting the Seatcraft Colosseum sofa and loveseat. This is the Big & Tall sofa/loveseat version of our top-selling home theater seats, the Equinox and Pantheon. These epic-sized power recliners are taller and wider than average recliners, providing expansive comfort and greater weight capacity for any big or tall home theater enthusiast.

Besides the Colosseum’s size and durability, what makes them so special? Well, the Colosseum sofas and loveseats are reliable, infinitely comfortable, built to last, and come fully loaded with custom features that are programmable to your unique needs.

Both the sofa and loveseat include adjustable, setting-controlled ComfortView™ Power Headrest and ComfortView™ Power Lumbar motors, as well as custom Power Recline. When you first sit in the Colosseum, find your perfect recline. Next, set the headrest and lumbar position that suits you, and press the memory button. Your settings are saved! Next time you settle down in the Colosseum, just press the memory button and you’ll be taken back to those exact positions. Every time, reliably.

The value of powered lumbar seats is especially important because this feature works to support your body’s natural curvature, giving your back the support it needs during extended time in a seated or reclined position. An added bonus of the ComfortView headrests is the ability to keep your viewing angle perfectly centered on the screen even when your seat is fully reclined. No more craning your neck or adding throw pillows behind your head to get a good view of your screen.

Padded Storage Consoles in each Colosseum loveseat have a unique sealed, silent-open-close panel that opens to reveal two cup holders and plenty of storage for accessories. Additionally, armrests on both the sofa and loveseat have cup holders as well as Hidden In-Arm Storage, where the polished black removable Swivel Tray Tables are stowed. Pull them out and attach to the arm, and you’ve got a place to set your snacks, a book, or a laptop. Then you’re ready to work, play, read, or watch in absolute comfort. In addition to storing the tray table, the in-arm storage compartment can also hold your books, magazines, or remotes.

Need to charge your phone or other devices while you relax watching your favorite movie? You can do that with USB Charging ports that are standard on every Colosseum. Need to charge your cell phones and laptop at the same time? No problem. The sofa takes it a step further with a fold-down burlwood table containing two lighted cup holders, power connections, and Wireless Charging.

The Colosseum’s impressive list of features would be less impactful without finishing it off with high-quality upholstered material. The best choice for both comfort and durability is obvious: Leather!

For both the Colosseum loveseat and sofa, we’ve chosen to use Leather 7000. But, what exactly is that? Quite simply, it’s the very finest leather designed specifically for your home theater seat. This exclusive, luxury material is a type of top-grain leather that is painstakingly hand-picked and chosen for premium look and texture. Only the thickest, toughest, best looking, and most durable top-grain hides will do! The leather is then carefully buffed to remove any imperfections or variations in color and texture, so that your Colosseum seat looks as swank, consistent, and inviting as possible.

As you sink into Leather 7000’s plush, inviting texture, this material will provide that soft yet supportive consistency which only the finest-quality natural leather can provide. The beauty of this leather is that it conforms to your body’s shape, while also being tougher, more durable, and easier to maintain than any other material. In short, the Leather 7000 ensures that the Colosseum will provide you with years of lasting comfort and enjoyment.

We’re positive that the Seatcraft Colosseum’s advanced power features, electronic extras, supreme leather comfort, and support, will provide you with the most extraordinary home theater experience for years to come.
