Home Cinema in Raleigh – Custom Cabinets
The beautiful part of having an in-home cinema is that you can enjoy the movies and games, of your choice, at your chosen time and with as much popcorn and refreshments as you please. After all, what’s a good movie without popcorn? When creating a home movie theater, here are a few items that will give you a complete theater experience.
Finding the right space in your home will result in a high quality home theater. The room should have the following features:
- A large rectangular-shaped room, no smaller than 10′ x 12′ (ideally, dimensions should be based on ceiling height – 1.6 times for width, 2.3 times for length)
- Minimum ceiling height of 7 feet
- Carpeted floors to prevent excess reverberation within the theater and absorb sound
- Isolated area (basements are ideal)
- No windows
- Multiple power outlets
- Internet access (for streaming)
Home Theater Features
Lighting: If you’ve ever gone out to the cinema, you’ll agree that the dimmed lights help you enjoy the movies better. A dark room shuts out the world for a more in-depth movie experience. The bonus is being able to view darkly lit scenes easily.
Sound Quality: Having quality sound is essential, as it could either make or mar your movie or gaming experience. You can opt for a surround sound system which makes you feel like you’re in the middle of the action.
Seating Arrangement: For this, you can either opt for chairs that recline or have sofas or seats against the wall. Bean bag chairs are also a great option. If your room is big enough, you might want to create stadium-style seating, so every seat has a great view.
TV/Projector: The screen’s size and positioning will depend on the room size and the number of seats in the room. Ideally, the TV should be High Definition (HD), and for projectors, a 4k is preferable. An 1080p is also an excellent and affordable option.
Storage: You’ll need a place to hide all the gamepads, DVDs, and other media items to avoid distractions. Custom built-in storage space can be added around the big screen.
