How To Create A Home Entertainment Room

A home entertainment room is an ideal place to recreate your own cinematic experience – as well as have a place to escape to after a long hard day. If you’re thinking about adding a home entertainment room to your house, keep reading for our expert tips and tricks for creating a room where you can relax and get the most out of your games, films and TV.

Choose the right space

The first step in creating a home entertainment room is choosing exactly where to put it. Places like spare bedrooms, basements, or secret dens are great spots, while rooms close to the kitchen or the garage can take away from your cinematic viewing experience. If you’re thinking of soundproofing the room, a place that’s at least 20 feet long and 12 feet wide will offer you the best sound quality.

Work within a budget

Deciding a budget (and then sticking to it!) means you’ll be able to separate the necessities from the luxuries of a home entertainment room, before gradually building it up when you can add more money into the pot. An easy way to save on the pennies is to use a projector instead of splashing out on a new TV screen; a projector doesn’t take up much room, can be put away after you’re done, and replicates the big screen experience you get at the cinema. If you want the soundtrack to rival the quality of the pictures – but don’t want to leave your wallet burning – NHS discount codes for HMV could help you save on sound systems when you decide to invest in some good speakers. 

Consider your furniture set-up

Mirroring a real cinema setup might be difficult due to the size of the room you’re planning to turn into a home entertainment spot, however, the way you set up your furniture can drastically change the viewing experience. It’s a good idea to play around with your furniture, ensuring everyone can view the screen easily when sitting down. For the ultimate cinematic experience, invest in seats with USB ports and cup holders.

Add the right tech

Depending on what you want to use your home entertainment room for, you’ll need different bits of tech. However, a key element of any home cinema setup is a well-rounded audio system. If you want to recreate the sounds you hear in a cinema for when you watch the best series on Netflix, we recommend investing in a subwoofer.

If you’re considering bringing cinematic experience into your home, use these brilliant tips and tricks to create the best home entertainment room, perfect for streaming films and TV, or playing video games. The best part? You won’t have to pay anything more than a couple of quid for your popcorn!
