The basic purpose to any piece of home theater furniture is to make the viewing experience more comfortable and pleasurable. Uncomfortable and compromising seats and cushions can ruin even the best movie, and poor storage space can cause equipment damage. Having a good set of home theater furniture will make the living or recreation room more inviting and fun for guests to use as well.

The first, and most important, piece of home theater furniture is the home entertainment center. This large storage and display unit is made to house all entertainment equipment, from the TV to the DVD player and speakers. A home entertainment center should also be able to store one's favorite DVDs and VHS tapes, game consoles, CDs, and remotes. Most centers have multiple shelves or a set of dresser drawers designed specifically for this purpose.

When buying home theater furniture, the second consideration is how to properly seat people. Recliners are perhaps the most comfortable of all home theater chairs, as they can allow a perfectly relaxed view of the TV set from any angle. Many leather and upholstered recliners come with built-in remote and magazine pockets, cup holders, and removable side tables. In addition to these specialized seats, you can also purchase sofas, ottomans, club chairs, and any other type of sitting furniture.

Expandable and Adjustable Home Theater Furniture Sets

Due to the fact that most people consistently add to their collections, it is important to purchase a home theater center that is capable of expanding. Some home theater entertainment centers can be bought in matching sets, meaning they can have extra shelves, drawers, TV stands, and display cases added at any time. Some of these utilize a central bridge piece that is designed to connect and stabilize all of the pieces; others require nails and screws to make the addition complete.
