BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Welcome Roxanne!

We couldn't be more excited to welcome the newest addition to the Palliser Rooms Team - WELCOME ROXANNE!

Roxanne gained valuable experience working with the wonderful ladies at First Avenue Furnishings in Saskatoon - with First Avenue Furnishings closing their doors in January, Roxanne is bringing her wealth of knowledge and excellent customer service skills to the team at Palliser Rooms. We are thrilled to have Roxanne on our team. Many of Roxanne's favourite custom styles that were available at First Avenue Furnishings can be found at Palliser Rooms, and Roxanne is more than happy to help her previous clients in this new position.

If you haven't had the chance to meet Roxanne at First Avenue Furnishings - here is a little bit about her:

I have been in the retail industry for years. Anyone that knows me, knows I am very passionate about working, shopping & supporting locally owned businesses. My goal is personally helping people to find exactly what they are hunting for. People may recognize me most recently as the previous Manager at First Avenue Furnishings. This is where I learned the ropes within the home décor/Furniture industry & where my heart & soul has been for the past 4 years. With the unfortunate closing of First Avenue Furnishings, I was given this amazing opportunity to continue working at Palliser Rooms / EQ3 – within an industry I found a true passion for. I am very excited to join the AMAZING team here at Palliser Rooms - another locally and independently owned Saskatoon business.

Build The Ultimate Home Theatre

 

The perfect home theatre combines high-tech audio and video capabilities with the sumptuous comfort of relaxation. With the right set-up, watching movies at home in a comfy recliner is even more fun and enjoyable than going out. Here are four steps to help you plan the home theatre of your dreams.

 

Our Home Theatre Seating is also part of our Palliser Motion Event - From Feb 7 - Feb 26, 2018 SAVE an additional 10% on Home Theatre Seating!

 

1) Get Inspired

Whether you’ve got a dedicated home theatre, are building one, or are transforming a multifunctional space, your options are limited only by your imagination. Get inspired by browsing magazines and websites to find the furniture styles that most appeal to you. Are you looking for a dramatic movie theatre look, or a sleek, contemporary space, or a comfy retreat that matches the rest of your home?

 

2) Define your Space

Once you’ve got an idea of your style direction you can start planning the room. Create a basic drawing of its layout and its dimension on paper, our experienced sales consultants can help you design the perfect layout. Note the location of doors, windows, and electrical outlets. These measurements will be invaluable as you locate your TV/screen and seating.

As you design your space, you’ll want to focus on both seating and the technical setup (audio/video) so they work in tandem.

 

3) Choose your Seating

Today’s home entertainment seating is as stylish as it is comfortable. Recliner models range from casual to contemporary and are designed to fit every home décor aesthetic. In addition to impressive styling and extreme comfort, you’ll also find a variety of innovative features.

Look for comfort features such as Multi Comfort power operation of both seat recline and headrest. Ask about memory buttons that help you return to your favourite positions, and USB chargers to keep your devices ready for use. We have a selection of models that feature power headrests to provide complete head support in a full recline position.

Other options you’ll want to explore include: in-arm storage, LED cup holders with removable liners, ground lighting, and wireless bass shaker features. Some sofa models even have accessories available such as a fasten-on table, glass holder, tablet holder, and LED Flex Light.

4) Maximize the Viewing Experience

The technical aspects of your home theatre will drive many of your decisions. If you’re not an A/V aficionado, hiring an expert or consulting a sales associate at your local retailer can save both time and money.

As you create your dream entertainment space, you’ll be choosing from an array of high-definition technology choices for both audio and video. Whether you choose a flat panel TV or a projection system, you can use the size of your viewing screen to determine your optimum viewing distance for seating placement.

For 1080 HD TVs and projectors:

Multiply the width of your screen by 1.5 and then divide by 12 to get the closest distance (in feet) you’d want to sit to it, and multiply it by 2.5 for the farthest away you want to be. For example, for a 60-inch-wide TV, you’d want to sit between 7.5 feet and 12.5 feet away. This formula works in reverse as well if you’ll be purchasing your TV after you have the room configured.

For 4K Ultra HD TVs and projectors:

To see 4K’s finer picture detail and depth, you can position your seating closer to the screen. For these video systems, multiply the width of your screen by 1 and then divide by 12 to get the closest distance (in feet) you’d want to sit to it, and multiply it by 1.5 for the farthest away you want to be. For example, for a 60-inch-wide 4K Ultra HD TV, you’d want to sit between 5 feet and 7.5 feet away.

Keep in mind, the best media viewing height is where the centre of the screen is at the viewer’s seated eye level.

 

Sit Back and Enjoy

Now that you’ve designed a home theatre that fits your home and lifestyle, there’s only one question left to ask: What movie should we watch tonight?
