How to make a living room from a cinema: 4 councils


Do you want to arrange a real cinema in your house,but can't you allocate a separate room for this? No problem! You can equip the living room in such a way that, while remaining itself, it allows you to arrange real film screenings. It is simply impossible to imagine the life of a modern person without cinema. It affects our consciousness and understanding of the world. Blockbusters with special effects give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the grandiose filming, and films with deep meaning make you think and sometimes rethink both individual views and your whole life. But for a comfortable viewing of films in your living room, you will have to work a little and re-equip this room in such a way as to create conditions in it similar to those in cinemas.

1. Places

A cinema hall is unthinkable without comfortable places forwatching movies. Therefore, the most important factors for sofas, armchairs and other things will be softness and comfort, rather than aesthetic qualities. It is better to install the seats in an L-shaped manner, although a placement in the shape of the letter "P" is also suitable. If you are the type of person who loves to sit on the floor, then a bunch of soft pillows will help you, on which you can easily watch a movie for many hours reclining. As for the material for furniture, there is an opinion that leather is best suited, but with the right acoustics, an ordinary soft sofa will do.

2. The right coffee table

Watching a movie without anything to eatfor many it loses all meaning. Therefore, you need to place popcorn, chips, nuts and everything that is usually chewed with sweet soda or something else somewhere. So a mobile coffee table (preferably two-level to fit everything and not constantly run to the refrigerator) will be extremely necessary. Glossy or reflective surfaces are not recommended to avoid glare and interfere with movie viewing.

3. Lighting

It is best to make an adjustable multi-levelLighting, so you can change its direction and brightness. For this purpose, spotlights that will create an even distribution of light are perfect. They should be located in different zones of the room. To darken the room, do not use draped curtains (they absorb sound), for this purpose Roman blinds or dense blinds are perfect.

4. Acoustics

This is the most important factor to consider.You will have to work hard to create a high-quality, surround sound, but there is nothing super complicated in this. First of all, you need to create an acoustic balance. If you hear a distinct sound or even an echo from a simple clap of your hands, then the room should be "muffled". The main thing is not to overdo it and not create the effect of an anechoic chamber, since the sound will cut the hearing. To minimize unwanted sound reflections from the floor, it is best to cover the floor with natural wool. A stretch ceiling in combination with sound-absorbing materials will also be an excellent option for a living room-cinema. Particular attention should be paid to the walls: they are the main reflector, and the acoustic balance at these points is most important for excellent sound. Once you have identified parallel surfaces, place a sound absorbing or diffusing panel on one of them. It will not allow repeated reflections, which will create a high-quality sound and finally remove even the smallest echo.,,,, Joshua McHugh,,,
