Three of the Top Trends We’d Love to Bring to Your Utah Home

A home theater is a home theater, right? They’re the same in every home. Wrong! Every home theater experience from AVWORX has been expertly designed after careful assessment of the homeowners’ needs. That means we speak to clients like you about your entertainment needs and wants before offering any cookie-cutter solutions.

While your home theater design is unique to your Salt Lake City, UT home, that doesn’t mean you couldn’t use a little bit of design inspiration to get the creative juices flowing! In this blog, we’ll cover three home theater trends for you to consider in your future home theater installation or upgrade.

Hybrid-Purpose Rooms

Instead of dedicating one area of the home to movie watching in the dark, many homeowners are opting for rooms that serve multiple functions. These rooms are known as media rooms or game rooms, and while they are a fantastic place to watch movies and TV, they’re also a fun place for video games and cozy furniture for the entire family. Media rooms are more social spaces than the traditional home theater and are a great place for families to spend time together.


Soundbars have not always been known for superior sound quality, but over the years, these speakers have come a long way. Higher-end models of soundbars now offer affordable solutions that provide good sound quality in smaller spaces, are easy to use, and require minimal installation effort. For example, soundbars from Bluesound support high-resolution audio, connect wirelessly to smart devices for music streaming, and can also function as an extension of a whole-home audio system.

Voice Control

Home theaters can be designed to function using your voice. Imagine saying, “Alexa, start Movie Night” to begin a sequence of lowering motorized shades to block out ambient light, dimming the lights, turning on the projector, lowering the projection screen, and queueing up your Netflix watchlist. It’s all possible with voice-enabled smart devices installed by AVWORX.
