It’s safe to say that we all love going to the movie theatre. That feeling of watching the latest releases on the big screen is unmatched. Watching a movie is a way to spend a relaxed afternoon with friends or a fun family outing.

So, why not bring the movie theatre experience to your own home? Take the experience of seeing the latest flick and combine it with the enjoyment of home comforts. In this article, we’ll be discussing how to create your very own movie paradise at home.

Selecting your room

Making a home theatre doesn’t have to be complicated. When drawing up the initial plan, consider how many people will be using the space at any one time. This can help you decide whether you should repurpose an existing room, or add an extension onto your property to allow for more space.

You also need to consider the layout of the room, taking into account the size of your theatre screen, viewing angles, seat comfort, and speaker placement. Ensure the positioning of the screen isn’t too high and the seats aren’t too close to it.

Ensure to conceal away any speakers and cabling so viewers can enjoy the screen viewing without the distraction of surrounding equipment. By creating an aesthetically pleasing room, you’ll enhance the overall experience of your home theatre.

This fun addition to your home means you can play around with styles, colors, and finishes. It’s the perfect opportunity to get creative. Perhaps you could hang movie posters, install popcorn stations, and experiment with different interior designs.

Sound and acoustics

You’ll need to think about the whereabouts of your home theatre as this will concern the other rooms in the house. You don’t want to be disrupting other family members if they’re not in the theatre room with you. Therefore, you’ll need to consider soundproofing.

The room’s surfaces will need to absorb the sound. You can do this by using lightweight acoustic boards or carpet tiles. An additional layer of insulation can help, too, and the room should be thickly carpeted.

One of the key decisions you’ll have to make is whether to choose a TV or projector as your screen choice. To create the same experience as a movie theatre, a projector is the best way to go. You can place speakers behind a drop-down screen to create an immersive sound experience, and the light levels can feel more controlled with a projected screen.

Getting secure with cabling

Streaming movies or programs will require you to have internet access in your home theatre room. There are several power products that can help you link up your home theatre to your existing power system.

You’ll likely require ethernet cabling to provide a wired connection to the internet. You should choose Cat6 for this as it offers a larger bandwidth and is best for 4k viewing.
