Does a home theatre increase home value?

In recent years, there has been a shift which has seen home cinemas become more sought after than ever, as more people opt to stay at home rather than go out. There has never been a better time to install a home theatre to increase house value! 
Although a home cinema can increase the value of your home, there are some key points to consider. Here are our top home cinema tips.

Consider the location of your home 

Where your home is located can determine the expectations of buyers looking in that area. If you live in an area where home cinemas are a common household feature, you are more likely to make a good return on your investment. Home cinemas are no longer reserved exclusively for the highest end of the market as they now appeal to a wide range of demographics. 

Be design-conscious 

Estate agents may suggest that home cinemas can be an unpredictable investment, but this is often down to the quality and practicality of their design.  

A home cinema can mean different things to different people. For some, a home theatre room is a family entertainment space, while others may be looking for a more professional set-up for hosting conference calls.  

A cinema room decorated with loud colours and cartoon characters could put off buyers, whereas a well thought-out, neutral design with a high quality finish creates an attractive, inviting space. 

Think about the costs involved 

If you are planning to install a lower-end home cinema, you are less likely to get a good return on your investment. If you want a home theatre to be a selling point, you need to ensure it doesn’t look like an afterthought. A lower-end finish could plant seeds in a buyer’s mind as to what else in the home may not be up to standard.   

A high-end home theatre, on the other hand, can be that wow factor that shows off your home and its potential. Our specialist staff can work with you and your budget to create a high-quality bespoke home cinema that will appeal to buyers. 

Maximising the value of a home theatre 

A clean, sleek design and the latest tech are great ways to get the most out of your home cinema. Creating a space which has up-to-date features that are flexible and practical will help maximise the value of your home cinema. 

Keep in mind your final buyer may want to make changes, so avoid any irreversible renovations.
