The Value of a Home Theater is Immeasurable

Monday, April 05, 2010

Posted by Jennifer Davis

While it is difficult to assign a specific, formulaic resale value to a home theater addition, the true benefit is in the experience: the comfort and convenience a theater provides. Plus, having an impressive theater adds the “wow” factor needed to attract buyers in certain real estate markets so that they can imagine living and entertaining in the space. “A home theater certainly adds value,” says Valerie Marques of Scottsdale-based VM Concept Interior Design Studio“and that value depends on the quality of the components they choose, and having a great design.”*

As Runco clients will attest, the value of a home theater might just be summarized best in the memories, movie moments, and the lifestyle that it creates for current and future owners. To see if a home theater is right for your home (and you may be surprised by the possibilities), contact a Runco dealer.

*As quoted in the March 2010 edition of Alaska Airlines Magazine in an article by Jenny Quill entitled “Enhancing Your Home: The best design combines create comforts and greater resale value.”

ColourPalette: Runco Cool

Monday, March 29, 2010

Introducing Runco Cool™, a new color in the Runco ColourPalette Signature Collection.
We selected this cool green-blue after seeing the Pantone organization reveal their 2010 Color of the Yearwhich is a similarly icy turquoise.  We loved how the color is reminiscent of tranquil tropical beaches, crystal blue skies, and frosty holiday decorations, and the fact that so many cultures over the centuries have celebrated the color as a harbinger of good luck or protection. It is the breathtaking shade of the aquarium water at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. Of course it’s similarity to the gift box from one of our favoriteretailers, was no coincidence either.  Keeping with the jewelry theme, we found that the color looked particularly nice with the platinum-toned trim on the VX, Q, and SC projector platforms and believe it will be a stunning color combination in your home.  Like a gift box for your theater.

When we were assembling colors for the recently launched ColourPalette, we took cues from the world of design and from nature, from the science of color and light, and our own preferences.  We’ll be featuring each color in the ColourPalette Signature Collection.  Follow our feed or bookmark this page to hear about additional colors we have selected for the palette and the color-matching service we offer to allow you to match your projector, LCD, or plasma display precisely to your room décor.
