The mecca of home entertainment – the Home Theater. This is the place where you should truly feel immersed in the experience of your favorite movie, TV show, or video game. Home Theaters come in all shapes, sizes, and budgets. Should you be looking for a modest space to bring in the elements of a Home Theater or a reference-quality space, let The SOHO Shop lead the way with smart technology.
A Home Theater is a closed off space, with tiered seating, a large projection screen and HD projector, and multi-channel speakers and subwoofers, all working harmoniously together to bring you an amazing cinematic experience. The technology doesn’t stop there however. A well-built Home Theater also includes technology inside and on the walls. Often times it is important to include sound-proofing technology inside the walls to make sure your viewing experience does not affect those outside of the Home Theater. Acoustic paneling inside the room, typically on the walls and ceilings, is used to improve the sound quality of the room.
Security & Surveillance
Your family and your home are your prized possessions. Keep them both safe with a security system and video surveillance designed by The SOHO Shop. Our scalable solutions allow you to choose the level of security that makes you feel comfortable in your home, and while you are away.
The amazing smart technology we use for security systems does not stop at a simple keypad and central monitoring service – why not have your home alert you by text, email when the kids get home. Even control the times of day that your cleaning person or nanny are allowed to enter your home. How many times have you left your home and forgotten to arm your security system? Simply pull out your smartphone and press the “Away” button: your home security is instantly armed, the lights, music, and television’s all turned off, garage doors are closed, and doors locked!
Knowing what is going on inside and out of your home is very important. Utilize our wide selection of digital and analog surveillance cameras, strategically placed to provide you the peace of mind you need to keep you informed. When you leave your home, stay connected by using your smartphone or computer and an Internet connection to check up on your home.
Central Vac System
We've all experienced it at least once in our lives. Hauling a vacuum cleaner up and down stairs. Trying to navigate under and between furniture. Examining a room after putting the vacuum cleaner away and having an odd sense that the room seems dustier than when you began. Worst of all, finding ourselves back at the stores every few years to purchase yet another vacuum cleaner because the old one fell apart. Installing a central vacuum system is the answer to all these complaints.

Closet and Shelving
There are endless possibilities with closet and storage organization systems. Our creative Solution Designers will work with you to build a customized design that reveals a closet or spaces optimal potential. Organization systems can be used for walk-in and reach-in custom closets, wardrobes, children playrooms, craft areas, pantries, media rooms, and storage rooms.
Walk-in closets are larger spaces, but often times that means the space can come with more challenges to maximize efficiency and storage ease. Solution Designers will work to take full advantage of your closet, no matter the layout. Reach-in closets are commonly found in older homes, or guest rooms. A single rod can make it hard to keep your space organized. Our systems build multiple levels of storage that is easy to access. Wardrobes create a closet that was not there before. Instead of a armoire you would have to buy at a furniture store, we build a custom look that will bring style, order, and functionality to your room.
Children bedrooms and playrooms are unique spaces that require a different design component in mind. How they can grow with the space. Our flexible and easily adjustable systems provide for the stage your children are in now, and what is to come. We design with your family in mind. We want your house to remain your home.
Craft areas provide a special get away space or room that allow your creativity to unfold. Don't spend your time searching and sorting through your items. Our organization systems can take even the smallest space into a place for you to make your own work of art.
Pantries and storage rooms often get forgotten. These spaces are needed for a home to function, but are often very small in size. By using our organization systems to organize your food and storage items, you can get the most potential out of even the smallest spaces.
Media rooms can be difficult to house your technology needs, but yet still remain pleasant to the decor. Elite storage systems allow your media room to not only house amazing technology, but also keeps it organized and stylish.
We believe all homes have hidden potential. Invite our creative Solution Designers for a complementary design consultation. You will be glad you did. You will never look at your home the same.
