Home cinema decor tips
#1 Invest in multi control
You should consider integrating a smart remote control to be able to control everything from one device. THEN you don’t have to fiddle with the projector first, then switch on the sound, control the lighting, etc. It will be much easier if you have a control for everything. It also makes the experience of cinema more tangible.
#2 Put a lot of powder on a home theater projector
Need we say that you should invest in a projector and screen specifically designed for home cinema? There is nothing to save on here, but of course it all depends on what budget you have.
#3 Choose a good room
Choose a room for your home theater where you have minimal light and sound interference. For example, if you have a room without windows, it is perfect.
#4 Keep it Soundproof
Soundproof the room with soundproofing material. The door is especially important as it otherwise lets in a lot of disturbing noise.

Use a high-quality sound system to get a cinema-like audio experience. You should feel it in your stomach when the bombs exploded! One tip is Sonos, which has really good products for home cinema!

Place the projector, screen and sound system at the perfect distance from each other for the best possible experience. Read the manuals carefully to achieve this in the best way.
#7 Furnish with details
Don’t forget the decor! Here you have the chance to create the right feeling and atmosphere. Invest in a popcorn cart, movie posters on the walls. Why not run a red carpet on the floor, if you like it?
