Home theater seating is a very popular topic for livening up your home or building a new home theater seating system. Currently, there are many products on the market that offer consumers private theaters or sidelines for use in creating new seating systems.
Many companies now manufacture glorified recliners called chair models that can be modified and placed on a stage, or even incorporated into a built-out area. These chair models often come with built in controls and/or features to make it more functional such as screens or displays.
These chair models are great to use as they come with the right height and length of the person sitting back against the throne style seat. When using this style of chair, it is important that you take into account the reach of your audience members because if those people do not have enough length of their chairs, they will fall off the stage or out of the venue.
Buy a piece of wood the same size as your riser
When buying the wood for your riser, make sure that it is certified meeting CSA Standards for lumber. These standards ensure that the wood is quality material and used in craftry projects.
By having this grade of wood, you will be able to create a raise on your floor to accommodate your riser. This will prevent your riser from being bowed or crushed, and give you more stability when building your theater seat. If you do not have this type of wood, there are still ways to build a theater seat.
Use an electrical wire or sturdy cloth as the support system instead of using a flooring material. Both of these have the same thickness but the former does not require a layer of water to be put on it to create enough moisture to establish growth.
Cut the corners off to make a square
When building a rectangle rosette, you must cut the top and bottom corners off of your cardboard box. These will create the side walls of your rosette.
You will also need to cut two holes at the same time for your cable line. This will allow you to place your television and/or sound system in your rosette.
Once both sides are cut, glue them together and let it dry. Then, drill two small holes in top of each panel and insert cable lines through these holes. You are finished!
These pieces will not be seen unless the rosette is closed, so do not worry about forgetting about these.
Cut a hole into the middle of the board
Once you have your middle boardceived, it is time to cut a hole in the ceiling. You want this hole to be large enough to fit your riser, and the distance between the floor and ceiling.
Take your time cutting the hole, and make sure you have enough space between each piece of wood to account for expansion and contractions of the room. A small mis-take can mean having to spend more money on later projects!
Once cut, glue or screw in the riser. This can be done very easily due to its small size. If doing a lot of work at a time, use some kind of fasten-aid system so you do not need strong hands to hold and operate.
Pull wires through the hole in the board
Once you have the bracket and riser pieces, it is time to build! First, you will need to create a space in your home that is adequately sized to hold the computer, TV, and seating.
You will need a minimum of two rooms to separate your computer, television, and seating. The bedroom or laundry room is ideal.
In the case of home theater seating, there may be fewer details to assemble. Thus, there may be more time spent on assembly. While it takes longer to build this piece, the finished product is much more beautiful than a normal chair or desk chair.
There are many ways to build this riser. You can use wood glue, power tools, or an old set of stairs for support.
Put steel brackets on the back of the riser
These allow you to add additional shelves or places for storage. Most home theater systems have some sort of shelf.
If not, you can make some with a bit of patience and a reciprocating saw.
There are many ways to build a riser. Some people use the flooring as the base, others use metal shelves or racks, and still others add a countertop or another surface to hold all of your materials.
The important part is having the ability to add more shelves or surfaces without having to buy new ones! This is possible with metalworking skills and with little effort you can add more seating.
Having enough space for your audience is another way to build a riser. By having enough space, people feel comfortable being on the floor or sitting in chairs.
Put wood pieces on the back of the riser
When building a Riser for Home Theater Seating, you must consider what you want to do with the Riser later.
If you are going to put a shelf on it, then you can finish the back with a shelf installation. If you want to add a bookshelf or more seating, then you must build the additional space first.
You can use these spaces for storage, or add another seating area if needed. This is very dependent on what your home needs!
The easiest way to build a Riser for Home Theater Seating is just to use two identical pieces of wood about two feet long, and put them side by side.
Put heavy objects on top of the riser to keep it sturdy
There are two main ways to put the riser together. In the first method, you place two pieces of wood or laminates together and then place the top piece on top of that.
The second way is to place a layer of foam between the two RCA units. This is more difficult to do and requires a professional. An interior designer would be very familiar with this method, as it is used for seating or entertainment center shelves.
When putting together a home theater seating rang e, pay attention to all the corner angles. A poor-looking riser can be put back into service quickly. Make sure it is supported at all four corners.
Cover with fabric or leather
If you are not building a riser for home theater seating, you can save money by using low quality leather or vinyl covering your seat. These materials do not conduct heat well, so if you are adding a heating pad or fire pit to your seating, make sure to take these into account.
Therefore, if you are buying new chair or sofa material, look for resilient materials such as canvas or leather. If buying a floor covering, look for soft and smooth material that does not hold extremely tight fibers together.
These ways can save you some money and time in the long run! Let us discuss some more ways to build a riser for home theater seating in the next article.
