Cutting Edge Design Home TheaterA quality home theater experience is like no other…

The lights come down as the movie starts… and immediately you are transported to the environment of the first scene and through the immersive sights and sounds of your impressive home theater you are there… feeling every emotion, the joys and sorrows of a great movie and for an hour or two you have escaped the bounds of the world without ever leaving your own home. This is the power of true home theater.

Whether it's a projector system or large flat panel TV, we are in the business of designing and installing a true movie theater experience in your home.

For the better part of two decades Cutting Edge Design has been designing and installing impressive home theater systems in the Pacific Northwest. With nearly 20 years of experience serving hundreds of happy home theater clients, we consider ourselves home theater experts.

"So how much can I expect to pay for a home theater?"

At this point you're most likely asking yourself... "So How Much?", Read on... You may or may not have seen the pictures of home theaters in magazines where the budget for the theater is most likely in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and built for some Hollywood millionaire. We can do that! But more than likely your vision for “movies at home” is a little more modest. We definitely do that too!

We understand you have a budget and we also understand the value you expect for your money. As a frame of reference, in most cases the home theaters we install significantly eclipse the movie experience you would have at the local Cineplex, regardless of the budget and scope of your home theater project. We pride ourselves on offering you an immersive home theater experience that measures up to your expectations with exceptional products that are by far your best bang for the buck.

Cutting Edge Design is in the business of designing and installing a true home theater experience in your home. Whether it’s nothing more than an excellent projector, film screen, A/V receiver and quality speakers for around $8,000 installed, or a fully appointed high performance custom home theater complete with a control system, home theater seating, room décor, and room acoustics costing between $40,000 and $60,000 dollars. Obviously, we can also create an extreme home theater in your "castle" that costs as much as you are willing to spend. Our ultimate goal is to support your unique environment with a “cinema in your home” experience within your budget! We only consider our job complete when we give you a great reason to stay home on the weekend and every night is another movie night.


One of the first questions we are asked by a prospective client is how much will my home theater cost. A question that is a lot more involved than you might think. A long time ago we realized that there is ultimately no way to answer this question without asking some questions first. Knowing the right questions to ask is a big part of our success.

The word "home theater" means different things to different people. You've heard the term home theater in a box, which is literally a surround sound receiver with five to seven speakers and a subwoofer in a box costing around $500. Most of the big box retail stores sell these as “home theaters”. We are more than capable of selling you one of those HTIBs (home theater in a box) with better performance specs and a better listening experience for a little more money, but ultimately we’re not in the business of selling these boxes. As we've stated before, we are in the business of designing and installing a true movie theater experience in your home, better known as a home cinema or home theater.

Home theater design and installation is one of the few examples where “all” of our industry experience and skill sets are brought to bear on a single project. Hiring an experienced contractor who can take on the whole home theater project is critical. As licensed and bonded low voltage and general contractors, Cutting Edge Design offers this unique ability to design, manage, and complete a full home theater project from start to finish. You deal with one contractor, one budget, and one schedule.

A well appointed home theater project requires consideration of many different technical elements. Although you might be used to a home theater that came in a box... we want to refine your home theater experience… Below is a comprehensive list of links to home theater products and brands we recommend installing in "any" home theater project:

A great experience!

Cutting Edge Design provides you with a great product at a great value. They were very quick to respond to my quote and got the work done fast. They've done lots of stuff for me in the past, but recently they installed new equipment for my WiFi. The overall experience was fantastic. I continue to use them and recommend their services because their prices are fair and the work is usually perfect.
