Tricked out with a sweet 65″ 4K TV or projector and some Dolby Atmos speakers, you may think your home theatre is pretty great, but in order to really immerse yourself in your entertainment you’ve got to be comfortable. One way you can lift your home theatre to the next level is to get some high quality theatre seating. You know, reclining seats, soft leather, and special cupholders and lighting so you can truly feel like it’s blockbuster movie night.
Review: Valencia Home Theatre Seating
I recently had a chance to try out and review Valencia Home Theatre Seating in my home for several weeks. Valencia is sponsoring this post, and I thank them for their support of the blog. Even so, they have not told me what to say or not to say in this review.
Valencia Theatre Seating: Get ready for arrival
Before the chair delivery arrives, it’s a good idea to prep your space. The boxes are big and heavy, and you’ll likely need some help to move them into the house and to your room.
Setting Up Valencia Home Theatre Seating
The first thing you’ll do is unbox the chairs by opening the box tops, then slowly rolling the box into an upside down position. With the open box top safely on the ground, you can lift the cardboard off the chair. Inside are the chair base and the back, in two parts.
The back attaches easily by slipping into clips on the base. Then you’ll connect a series of wires that control the lights and basic motorized movements. Follow the directions, which are shipped inside the chair’s armrest.
With all your wires hooked up properly, you can plug the chair in and you’re ready to go! Unboxing the chairs took the longest, setting them up took just minutes.
Depending on the configuration you choose, you may next need to clip the chairs together using the small metal brackets underneath. These will hold the chairs side-by-side.
Using & adjusting Valencia Home Theatre Seating
The controls for your seat are on one of the cup holders imbedded into the armrest. There’s Power, Lights, and several buttons for adjusting the various seating positions:
- recline level
- footrest up/down
- lumbar support
- headrest angles
Each of the power-assisted functions can be adjusted a bit at a time so if you only want a bit of back support, you can have it. If you prefer a puffy pillow for your head and neck, no problem. You can adjust your chair to be perfectly comfortable for you.
Separate controls for each chair in the row
Each chair is controlled separately, even if you have a row of seating, so everyone in the family can find their perfect level of comfort, no matter their size.
Comfort and feel – Valencia Home Theatre Seating
The chairs come in numerous styles and colours. The ones I’m testing out are black versions of the Tuscany model by Valencia Home Theatre Seating, which has a nice quilted panel.
These chairs are leather, and Valencia says they use only Top Grain Nappa 11000 leather. Valencia says this means that only the best quality leather is used for seating surfaces and armrests and that results in a more luxurious and more durable chair than the competition. It’s also easy to maintain.
Built with wood and steel, these home theatre chairs feel sturdy and durable, and the leather definitely doesn’t feel delicate or like it would rip.
The Tuscany chairs have armrests which double as storage compartments; just lift the top of the armrest and there’s about as much room as in a car or truck console. Stash stuff like remote controls, TV guides, and anything else you may want to keep at hand. Also in the armrest is a cup holder with soft LED lighting built in, and connected to that is a USB charging port in case you need extra power for your phone or tablet.
On the topic of lighting, there’s another fun feature of these chairs; there’s LED lights also built into the base of the chairs to create a soft glow. It’s not too bright; it’s the perfect level so your focus can stay on the movie. And if you prefer you can turn them off at movie time.
Chairs operate silently
Will these mororized chairs make noise? The Valencia Home Theatre seating Tuscany chairs operate silently. There’s a low vibration, but that’s about all you’ll hear. You definitely wont upset anyone if you make adjustments during your program.
Footprint in a room is minimized
These chairs also have an interesting feature that lets you place them relatively close to walls. The chairs don’t need a lot of space to recline, since they shift somewhat forward instead. That means you can put them near a wall, and not worry about crushing legs, or scratching the wallpaper.
Overall review Valencia Home Theatre seating
In all, I definitely enjoyed being able to try these chairs in my home. They’re truly comfortable, and fun and give a real high end theatre experience to my space.
I like the soft leather, and absolutely love the LED lights. I found the chairs easy to operate, and really like that they move totally silently.
In short, if you want comfy, durable and fun chairs for your home theatre or living area, I can recommend Valencia Home theatre seating. You can find many of the options at Best Buy or from Valencia Theatre Seating’s website, as well as from other retailers.
