How to Create your Own Private Cinema Room at Home

Tuesday, June 19, 2018


A cinema or media room sounds pretty luxurious, but you don't need to own a mansion to be able to get on board with this idea. A spare bedroom or an unused reception room could easily be put to use to create a space you really love. If you want to try and create your own private cinema room then there are a couple of things that you can do to make this happen.

Seating
Believe it or not, finding the right angle for your seat is all about maths. If you were to draw two lines from the position of the seat to the edge of the screen then this would be your viewing angle. Ideally, this angle should be around 35 degrees, but it can be up to 40 degrees. If you have it any more than this then this can make you feel as though you are far too close to the screen. This is the last thing that you need when you are trying to create the most optimum viewing experience. If you have an angle that is too small then this means that the rest of the room will be in your peripheral vision and this is the last thing that you need.

Source the Finest Equipment
The housing plan that you have should provide you with more than enough room to have all of the equipment that you need. Basic equipment includes a projector or a screen, a DVD player, a gaming console and more. It’s a good idea for you to have all of your equipment installed in some kind of cupboard or even in a storage area. If you have a higher-end cinema then you may want to consider where you are going to have your projector. Of course, it’s important to know that some projectors will give off way more heat when compared to others and you may even need to have something to cool the room down as well. An air conditioning unit is a great way for you to do this, but if you can’t afford one then don’t worry, a fan is an affordable alternative.

Sound
Surround sound really is the key to success with any cinema room. You may even want to have a smart home cinema system installed as this can help you to connect all of your speakers and your wires flawlessly. A lot of cinema rooms have sound that is 5:1 but if you want to step things up then you may want to have 7:1. A subwoofer is also great if you want to really bring out that great sound. You can install these with ease and it is super easy for you to stay on top of the whole thing in terms of maintenance. When planning out your sound, take note of which speakers deliver which part of the sound and then place them accordingly. For example, you don’t want the voices coming from behind you, but sound effects may sound pretty good when they are coming from behind.

Decor
When decorating your cinema room, try and opt for dark colours, as this will help to contrast the television or the projector screen far more efficiently. How about adding some cool retro features like a popcorn machine, or upgrading the lighting by adding spotlights in the floor just like a real cinema? have fun with it!
