A home theater is a “nice-to-have” amenity as opposed to a kitchen and bathroom that are considered must-have interior space. Many homeowners choose to have one for their home as a cost-effective alternative to going out to watch at a nearby cinema. But does putting together a dedicated home theater help your home increase in value? Oberg Roofing & Remodeling, Inc., one of the top remodeling and roofing companies in the area, explains further.
The Cost of Putting Up a Home Theater
The total price tag of a home theater depends on various factors. One of the most notable is the space itself. An existing room that is converted into a home theater is seen as a more economical choice over refinishing a basement or renovating an unused space. Also, the size, quality and installation of the speakers, flat-screen television and other furnishings can drive up the cost.
The Impact of a Home Theater on a Property’s Overall Value
To answer the question posed at the beginning of this article, putting together a home theater could increase your home’s overall value. However, that will depend on the appraiser’s assessment of the entire space. It is usually subjective; some may give a certain value to the finished space but not the equipment installed inside.
If you are planning to remodel an existing space and turn it into a home theater, don’t expect that it will affect your home’s resale value like a roof replacement does. More often than not, a prospective buyer would prefer the space to be used for something else, like a bedroom or home office. Only focus on this project if you are looking to enhance your personal or your family’s enjoyment and experience.
