The Cinema Experience in Your Home

A Custom Home Theater Furnishes Superior Audio and Stunning Video Beyond Compare. 

Film is a powerful medium, one where we have built temples in which to experience this art form. The stories on screen are created with the cinema setting firmly in mind. The esteemed critic Roger Ebert echoed this sentiment, saying: “In the previous century the movie theater was often, in smaller towns and cities, the only grand architectural statement, save perhaps for a church or courthouse. They unashamedly provided a proscenium for our dreams.”

As we view more movies from home, there is no reason to lose the sense of drama and revelry. In fact, a custom home theater in your Los Angeles, CA home can create a far more evocative affair. 

One of the advantages of living in a smart home is having streaming sources and curated content available at the touch of a button.  The right design and technology enhance your movie-watching moments with immersive sound and stunning video quality.

BETTER WELLBEING THROUGH CIRCADIAN LIGHTING

KETRA’S NATURAL LIGHTING SYSTEMS BRING BALANCE TO CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS AND BETTER OVERALL HEALTH

Natural light has a profound influence on the world around us, dictating the natural cycles and seasons. It is as much a life force as the blood that flows through our veins, with the power to invigorate and inspire us. Human biology is tied to the sun’s intensity and vibrancy transitions as the tides are to the moon. The sun influences the wax and wane of circadian rhythms, directing our sleep-wake patterns and, therefore, our daily energy and emotional state.

All too often, the illumination in our homes is seen merely in a utilitarian manner, functionality over comfort. Research has shown that our well-being, focus, and general outlook is greatly influenced by the type of light we experience. Ketra, purchased by Lutron in 2018, is a lighting company explicitly created to bring balance by integrating natural and tunable lighting.

Whether by necessity or a lifestyle choice, it is clear that the trend towards working from home is growing exponentially.  This change was well underway before the events of 2020, but the accelerated manner in which the majority of work changed has made remote work normal.

According to Entrepreneur Magazine, many founders are already committing to having an average of 70 percent of staff work remotely for the next five to ten years.  Studies have also shown that the productivity of workers has maintained or slightly increased. No matter how they got there, many employees are rethinking the attraction of high-density living for work. Many have already made a move to accommodate the current health precautions and manage a life-work balance actively.
