Can you imagine having a home cinema in your cellar? Just think, no more waiting around in a queue, no more having to deal with noisy people causing unwanted interruptions, and no more adverts. Instead, it can be just you and your family spending nights snuggled up in front of a large screen TV, complete with comfy seats and as many snacks as you can eat. With a few tips and tricks, you’ll be able to create the dream cinema experience in your own home. Here’s how it’s done:
First of all, you need to make sure that your cellar is an adequate space for your home cinema. Make sure that it’s dry without any leaks. You’ll want to make sure that it’s well insulated as well as properly plastered. When sorting out the layout of the room, make certain that you take things like the cabling into consideration. It could also be useful to ensure that the room is soundproof.
One of the best things about converting the cellar into a home cinema is the lack of light, due to the lack of windows. A dark room is the ideal space for the perfect film experience. However, it’s worth making sure that you do have some form of lighting installed- perhaps a dimmer switch would work best.
In terms of furniture, you want things that look cosy and homely. Go for squashy sofas with lots of cushions, or if you want to replicate a real cinema, go for individual armchairs. Again, make sure they’re the sort where you can sink back and relax into them. If you expect to have a lot of people round to enjoy your home cinema, then why not buy a bunch of beanbags for a fun touch? You’ll also want to have some sort of table where you can put all your snacks and drinks, as well as a stand or shelf where you can keep all your DVDs.
Now all that’s left to do is to add your home cinema equipment. A surround system and a large HD TV will do nicely.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy- you’ve earned it!
