Create your perfect home entertainment room

Staying in is the new going out.  Many of us have ditched the cinema for the small screen, whether we like it or not.  But trying to turn nights and weekends spent indoors, into an experience is difficult to do.  So, perhaps creating your own home entertainment room is the answer?  But how do you make the perfect space for cinematic nights and entertaining evenings in?  Here’s a few ‘must have’ items to consider.

 

Sound and vision

So, the first thing you’re likely to think about is installing a big screen.  But do you go for a high-end TV screen, or a projector? This will be down to personal choice and budget of course, as well as your technical know-how.  If you’re going for that big-screen experience you may prefer a projector, although you’ll need to make sure your room is big enough and suitably dark.

Don’t forget that sound is a big part of the experience too!  Think about sound bars and home cinema speaker sets for ultimate screenings.

Along with your cinematic set up, you’ll need to think about wiring and power points.  Consider how you route cables and tuck them out of sight.  Work out whether you have sockets in the right locations.  If you’re thinking of wiring a new socket, make sure you budget for an electrician to carry this work out for you.

 

Are you sitting comfortably?

Your seating is going to be another big consideration for your home entertainment room.  You’ll possibly be thinking of large comfy seating to make screenings a thing of luxury, be it overly large armchairs or sofas.  However, another thing to think about is having tiered seating.  Especially if you’re planning to have lots of family or friends enjoying the space too.  Tiered seating doesn’t have to mean classic cinema seats though, as you can build a platform behind your armchairs or sofa to place another ‘row’ of comfy seating.

 

The right ambience

To create the right ambience, you’ll need to consider the colour scheme and lighting you use in the room.  White walls will make the room seem bright, but that might not be the best for your cinematic experience.  Dark walls and ceilings may make more sense.  Adding dimmable ceiling and wall lights will mean you can control when you want it light enough to see and dark enough for screenings, as well as create that theatrical ambience.

 

Extra entertainment

Finally, you might want to think about adding some extra entertainment into your room, in addition to your big screen.  If it’s a family room, this may be a games or pool table, or if you’re going for a more adult space perhaps a cocktail bar or some retro arcade machines.
