How You Can Recreate The Movie-Theatre Experience In Your Home
Who doesn't love watching a good movie from a theatre? You don't necessarily have to be a movie buff to enjoy and appreciate an enjoyable theatre experience. However, since the outbreak of COVID-19, many people are wary of going out for a movie, even though the theatres across the country have started operating. So, if you ever had the idea of setting up a home theater system before, now is the right time to make it happen.
Not sure where to start? Creating a movie theatre experience at your home isn't always a costly affair. Do some light research and arm yourself with the knowledge about the basic requirements of setting up a home movie theatre before talking to our professionals. Once we have a clear understanding of your requirements, we will guide you through the necessary equipment and installations to elevate your family movie nights.
Here are some of the basic things you need, to create an impressive home theatre to get you started.
Your Screen Size
When most people think of a theatre, they think of a big screen. But when you are setting up a home theatre, how big should your screen be?
For instance, the minimum distance requirement for an 85 inch 4K screen and the seating is less than 10 feet. So if you have a hall area in your home which measures more than 10 feet, you can easily set up some comfy seating for a big-screen movie screening. For smaller spaces, you can adjust the screen size and seating distance accordingly.
Make the sound count
It is said that the music and sound effects provide 50 percent of a movie experience. If that's true, a sound system is something that you cannot compromise when setting up a home theatre.
Even so, there is no need for you to spend unnecessarily on your audio system. Our experts can make the best recommendations for your home theatre based on your overall budget. Ideally, you need a total of 5 to 6 speakers for a compelling surround sound system. You need 2 to 3 speakers in front of you and 2 to 3 speakers to your sides and behind you. As the audio signal splits into multiple channels, the different sounds and music will come out of different speakers, creating an immersive experience. Most of the prominent sounds and conversations will be played from the front speakers. Paired with the right subwoofers, you can easily create the best movie effort with our hand-picked speakers.
Set The Mood With Lights
One of the best parts of the theatre experience is the ambiance. The comfortable dim lights that fall away from the screen ensure that there is no interference with the cinematic experience you are looking forward to.
When setting up your home theatre, you can also invest in some controllable lighting, which helps you navigate your room without interfering with the movie experience. If there are windows in your theatre room, make sure that they are entirely shut off with shades and curtains to prevent natural light from streaming in during your movie time.
Apart from investing in quality speakers for the best sound experience, it is also essential to soundproof your home theatre. Soundproofing doesn't have to be an expensive affair. You can easily use your existing furniture to create the right effect. Additionally, put down some carpets and rugs on the floor, seal air gaps, and introduce some budget-friendly soundproof curtains for the windows.
Soundproofing will help keep unnecessary noises from inside or outside your home. You can enjoy a good movie even in the morning without being disturbed by your neighbor's lawnmower or any other external noise.
