What is a riser?

A home theater riser is a small platform that is meant to give additional height to a seat. This will help who is ever sitting in these back seats get a better view of what is playing on screen. Risers are typically made of wood and are very sturdy. They are typically high enough that a single step is needed to get up on top of them. You can get them installed in your home theater by getting in contact with a home theater company. Some chairs, like ones from Valencia Theater Seating, can be customized to have built in risers. It all depends on your needs. Now that you know what risers are, lets understand why some home theaters need them!
