Now Scott, you did say spouse yet the picture is of a very attractive young lady. Am I too assume only men are the theater owners and the spouse is a woman ?
O.k., just trying to stir up the honey-to-do pot , sorry, but I believe you started it .
In my case, my spouse was on board 100%, we watch movies together most of the time, so it was no battle when I decided to go from a make shift recreational room to a full on
dedicated theater. I had two thumbs way up and had full control of the design, color scheme, carpet furniture and so on. We were doing a whole home renovation anyway, I believe
giving me the reins on the theater kept me busy enough to stay out of the decision making process for the rest of the home. In all honesty, we worked together on everything, most
of the items we mutually agreed on anyway, so that made it easy.
Now, to answer the question, I do consider the spouse acceptance factor and I'm lucky to have one 100% on board. As the saying goes guys, "happy wife happy life."
