There’s never been a better time to invest in a cinema room. Over the past year as the pandemic restricted our movements, millions of us have learned to love spending time at home watching the very best movies, TV, and sport. If this sounds like you, you may be wondering how to create your perfect cinema room. You might also assume that this task will be difficult and costly, however, it’s actually a lot more straightforward than you imagine. Read on to find out how to set up your dream cinema room within your home.
Cinema rooms and their rising popularity
Let’s face it, over the past 12 months, home entertainment has spared so many of us from boredom. As lockdown progressed and isolation set in, it has helped to keep us sane. Many people have even invested in cinema rooms so that they can enjoy their favourite films and shows in the highest possible quality within their own homes. Their popularity is continuing to rise, with people realising that setting up a cinema room is a relatively simple task.
What you need to set up a cinema room
If you’re wondering how to create your perfect cinema room, keep reading. By adapting your space appropriately and investing in the right audio-visual equipment, you can easily develop a cinema room that you love. You can create an authentic cinema experience for your whole family to enjoy. Whether it’s watching the latest blockbuster movie, catching up on your favourite drama show, or settling down to watch the tournament we’ve all been waiting for – Euro 2020, you can look forward to unbeatable entertainment in your home cinema room.
Cinema rooms can be as multifunctional as you want them to be. As well as watching films, TV, and sport, they can also be used to play video games, listen to music, or even follow workout videos. They can be very versatile spaces.
Choose the right room for your home cinema
When it comes to choosing the right room for your cinema, there are a few factors to consider. One of the biggest is space. Generally, the bigger the room the better since a large room with higher ceilings can offer a more immersive experience. You also need to think about the acoustics of the room. As well as ensuring that the speakers you use are powerful enough to produce enough sound to fill the space, but you need to make sure the room is the correct shape to deal with the sound waves effectively.
Invest in blackout blinds to block light
You need to make your cinema room as dark as you can if you want to enjoy the full movie theatre experience. You’ll be able to better immerse yourself in what you’re watching. Fortunately, this is quite easy when you invest in quality blackout blinds. They’re ideal for cinema rooms since they can create total darkness when closed, achieving the perfect viewing conditions. Many people opt for motorised blackout blinds since they can be operated easily at the quick touch of a button. Blackout blinds can also help your cinema room to retain the sound, giving you better control of the acoustics.
At Barton Blinds, we supply blackout blinds in Doncaster and the surrounding areas, with styles and designs to suit a range of needs and budgets. We also offer a full measuring and installation service for blackout blinds. This ensures that your blinds will be fitted to the highest possible standards by experienced installers. They will fit your windows perfectly, blocking out natural light and creating a dark and immersive setting for your cinema room.
Choose a projector or TV
Many people assume that a projector is the only option for a cinema room, however, in reality, TVs are increasingly becoming the preferred choice. Both come with various benefits, so be sure to consider both types of equipment carefully before you make a decision.
Projectors for cinema rooms
There’s something very appealing about choosing a projector for a home cinema room. Not only do they provide a really authentic cinema experience, making you feel as if you really at the movies, but they’re also very affordable too. Of course, they do come with limitations. For example, the image on a projector screen may appear somewhat faded if the room hasn’t been made dark enough. The quality of the image on the screen can be affected, impacting your viewing enjoyment. Therefore, if you decide to invest in a projector for your cinema room, it makes sense to have blackout blinds installed too. Choose Barton Blinds for top-quality cinema blackout blinds in Doncaster.
Big screen TVs
As TVs have become more and more affordable, they’ve gradually overtaken projectors as first-choice for home cinemas. Prices on ultra-HD 4K TVs have fallen considerably over time, making them accessible to more people with various budgets. What’s more, their performance tends to be far better than many projectors too. They offer a better higher quality image, making the viewing experience more enjoyable. The downside to TVs is that their screens are usually smaller than projector screens. Even though they can reach 100 inches, they are still incapable of reproducing the image size created by a top-end projector in most cases.
