WANT TO TALK? E-MAIL ME AT EDITOR@HOUSEBEAUTIFUL.COM. Joanna Saltz: Suddenly, and for good reason, everyone is paying attention to the mood your home can put you in. What do you think?

(Or maybe they’re sick of watching them while hunched over an iPad.) A home theater needs only three things: good acoustics, proper wiring, and comfortable seats—which means you probably already have the perfect spot. The key to mapping it all out? Rustam Mehta of GRT Architects recommends “getting the projector as early as possible to mock it up. This takes the guesswork out of the right seating-to-wall arrangement and how high you want the projector on the wall.”Fast-forward to learn how the pros create a truly dazzling film-enhancing experience.—Hadley Mendelsohn Think Vertically While tiered rows require the extra step of building platforms, they offer the best…
