Going to the movies is one of those activities that just doesn’t grow old. There’s just something special about sitting in pitch black, seeing the picture flash across the big screen in front of you, with surround sound transporting you into the scene. While this experience is often reserved for going out to the theater, if you have a spare room in your house, you can easily bring this experience of home theater with a few modifications.
If you’re considering transforming your extra room into a home theater here are five things you need, to get the best experience possible.
The major things to look out for while creating a home theater experience.
Make Audio the primary Focus
The main reason one enjoys going to the movies is the sound blasting from the speakers which ensures audio clarity and makes the movie experience thoroughly enjoyable.
At home, the most basic surround sound speaker system consists of 5.1 channels. The “5” stands for speakers in the front left, center, front right, rear right, and rear left positions, while the “.1” belongs to a subwoofer that helps flesh out the bass for explosions and other low-end effects. Speakers come in all shapes and sizes, from freestanding towers to bookshelf models to thin speakers that mount on or in the wall.
A few tips for a surround-sound atmosphere at home that will make an amateur home theatre into a professional one are –
Speakers should be at least 60cm away from walls, furniture and room corners.
Speakers perform best when levelled with your ears when seated in the listening position.
It is also helpful to make sure your walls are insulated to further block out noise. Soundproofing is not only helpful at keeping the noise out, but it also keeps the sound in too. This can minimize any disturbance to others in the house when the theater is in use.
Home theaters are best set up in rooms without any windows so the natural light doesn’t disrupt the viewing experience. If your room has windows, you can also take care of the natural light with blackout curtains. When it comes to installing lights in your home theater you want to keep it soft and you want to make sure there isn’t any glare on your projection screen. This makes recessed lighting a good choice.
Another option is to use LED strips around the perimeter of the room. This can help you and your guests see to get around the room while the movie is playing without distracting from the movie itself. Plus, they also provide enough light to see your snacks too.
Adequate lighting can create a strong impact on your home theater experience because it makes the tone and ambiance better. Proper lighting is more than just aesthetics, it’s one of the best ways to make home theaters fully functional.
Display that does the talking
When you envision a theater-like movie experience, you probably think first of a projection system and a very large screen. It has gradually become one of the more popular additions to a home theatre element. Choosing a high-quality screen for your home theater projector can make all the difference in image quality. Screens come in a variety of sizes, made of various materials, installed in a variety of ways, and each small decision you make about your projector screen will impact your viewing experience.
The other and the most common type of home theater displays are televisions that are now available in LED, OLED, and LCD screens. Of all the television types, OLED screens are the most expensive. On the other hand, LCD televisions are better suited for rooms that are well lit while OLEDs can be used in normal lighting or dark lighting conditions. Lastly, LEDs can be used in rooms that either has normal lighting or bright lighting.
Choose Comfortable Furniture
When you’re watching a movie on a home theater projection screen, the last thing you want is to be distracted by being uncomfortable. You want to carefully pick out the furniture for your home theater, making sure it is comfortable. Test each piece before you make a final decision to make sure it won’t make you or your guests uncomfortable. While this might seem insignificant in light of the other elements, it is strongly recommended that the right furniture you can also set the tone of your home theater space according to the lightning and overall theme of it.
Use Great Tech
No matter how beautifully designed your home theater is, your experience depends on the type of tech you use in the space. If you choose to use a high-end large screen TV, then you want to make sure that you wall-mount it and hide the wires. While many people do use TVs in their home theaters, why not opt for an alternative? Try Smart Projector Paint Contrast? This product has been designed to optimize the home cinema experience. It absorbs certain light which enables the user to achieve greater definition on darker images. It’s low on maintenance and high on visual quality.
You also want to make sure you have access to high-quality Blu-ray players or a system that links to one of the many streaming services. Once the picture is taken care of, consider the sound. Surround sound is a major part of the movie viewing experience.
Once you’ve assembled all the different home theater elements, you’ll probably want to invest in a universal remote to control them all. A well-selected, well-programmed remote can make life easier for every viewer in the house.
