There’s no better way to spend quality time with family and friends than by sharing some popcorn and enjoying a movie. Without a doubt, the best movie nights aren’t the ones at the cinema, they’re the ones at home.
If you’re lucky enough to have the space and budget, to design an indoor cinema, there’s no need to think twice about it. In this blog, we’ll be sharing our top tips on how to design the ultimate home cinema room. Keep reading to find out what they are…
Set Your Budget
Before you go all out and start purchasing everything that your heart desires, it’s important to create a budget. Plan out how much you expect things to cost and how much you are actually willing to part with.
Consider the Use
When designing an indoor cinema, it’s incredibly important to consider how you will use it. Think about how many people usually come and watch movies. Do you need to accommodate more or less people? Once you have a brief idea you can start planning.
Choose the Best Seating
Above anything else, you want your indoor cinema to be as comfy as possible. Take a careful look at the couch size guide and determine which model is the best for your needs. You could also decide to install cinema seats or even a mix of the two.
Sound Proof the Space
The cinema room is a great way to keep kids entertained, especially during events like sleepovers or birthdays. However, the noise from an indoor cinema can often be too much to handle. If you want to keep noise to a minimum, we recommend you soundproof the space.
Make Room for Snacks
More often than not, cinema rooms are placed in the basement of a home and far away from the kitchen. That’s why you should make plenty of room for snacks within the cinema itself. Consider installing a mini fridge, cabinets, and even a popcorn machine.
Add Surround Sound
If you’re going through all the effort of creating your own cinema, you may as well invest in a fantastic surround sound system. Thankfully, there is a range of models to suit every kind of budget.
Install Mood Lighting
Lighting is another factor that will seriously bump up the experience. You can purchase lights that automatically change with the colours shown on the screen.
Pick a Perfect Distance
Nobody wants to be sat too close to the screen so make sure to measure out the distance as accurately as possible. For example, a 100-inch screen should sit around 119 inches away from the first row of seats.
At the end of the day, it’s important that you create a cinema room that meets your needs. Think about how many people you typically have over. Make sure to keep a ton of snacks nearby and comfy blankets to keep you snug. Make the most of your cinema by hosting a weekly movie night with friends, and, most importantly, have fun.
