Having a home theater is a great investment that not everyone can afford. Today we want to show you amazing home movie theater rooms, so you can be inspired if you are considering setting one up, and not missing a single detail.
Having a home movie theater room allows you to watch movies in the company of family and friends, a good excuse to get together and have a meeting.
It can also be used to play video games, watch soccer games with friends etc.
Essential elements that you need to set up a home movie theater and some aspects that you must take into account to come up with the perfect result:
It is one of the essential elements for the room. You have to choose the right size according to the room size. There are several types of screen.
A white bed sheet:
It can serve as a screen but only as a quick-fix solution because small wrinkles can prevent good image quality.
It can also be used as a screen. It is less recommended because it is very difficult to have a wall like that at home.
Another of the most economic screens. Its base is fixed to the wall and unrolls when we want to see a movie.
Same as above, the only thing that changes is that the screen rolls down with the help of a remote control. More comfortable and practical.
Projector screen stand:
They are usually used to make presentations but they also work great as a movie screen. Another economic option.
Fixed projection screen:
It is solely and exclusively for watching movies. It is fixed to the wall.
Audio is a very important constituent for immersion in the storyline. A good home stereo system can make the difference. The 7.1 system is the best option for home cinema offering a quite realistic and professional experience. You can find at the following link other audio system options.
The projector plays a crucial role in the viewing of the movie. There is a wide variety of types and prices. We recommend the following ones:
Projector Full HD/4K: The best option to watch your movies. The resolution of a Full HD projector offers a high level of detail for home theaters. Full HD projectors are only surpassed by 4K resolution. If you want to enjoy a good home theater experience, choose a projector with at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.
HD Ready Projectors: A 720p projector or one with a little less native resolution but without falling into the VGA system. It is the second best option to watch movies in a very good image quality.
VGA / SVGA / XGA / WXGA Projectors: More economical and with more limited resolutions. Most of these projectors offer a 4:3 quality, which is domestic quality but not a movie theater one. Good option for a slightly lower budget.
3D Projector: Indicated especially for films that have been planned as 3D and 3D video games.

Location is the most important factor when designing a home theater. It is more likely to use a room without windows that can dazzle the screen, the basement is the most common choice in order not to loose floor space or exterior views.
Sometimes you can choose small skylights when the room is not dedicated exclusively to audiovisual use.Soundproofing the room is also very common to prevent bothering other people in the house.
If you choose to use the basement then you will need less soundproofing, since it only had to be executed in the ground floor slab. Even having a large room, having a home movie theater room is the dream of many home owners, and a more than interesting option to make the social area something unique.
