Enjoy Stylish and Durable Seating for Long-Term Comfort
When homeowners plan their media room or home theater, they tend to focus on the technology and forget about another just-as-important element to creating a successful entertainment space: seating.
Media rooms and home theaters are meant for hours-long activities, like watching movies and playing video games. If your seating isn’t designed for long-term comfort and support, you’ll miss out on the entertainment by trying to relieve a strained neck or back.

Ketra Lighting’s Human-Centric System Works With the Sun’s Natural Light to Enhance Your Lifestyle
Light has a profound effect on us; its natural cycles regulate our days and influences our well-being. We have evolved as a species to rise with the sun and sleep when it sets. The color and hues change over the course of a day signaling our bodies to generate hormones or melatonin.
Standard lighting design has often treated illumination as a utilitarian function, using harsh contrasts and cold colors. Ketra, purchased by Lutron in 2018, has long believed there should be more to it than that. In Ketra’s own words: “Our shared mission is to make light an integral part of the human experience. We’re rewriting the story of light and creating technology that works intuitively with us- to make the world a brighter, more beautiful place.”
Circadian based smart lighting control provides a different, more naturalistic approach. See how you and your Margate, NJ home can benefit.
