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

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

1. Places

The cinema is inconceivable without comfortable seats forWatching movies. Therefore, the most important factors for sofas, armchairs and other things will be softness and convenience, rather than aesthetic qualities. To install the seats is better L-shaped, although the placement in the form of the letter "P" is also suitable. If you are one of those who like to sit on the floor, then you will be helped by a bunch of soft pillows, on which you can easily watch a multi-hour movie 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 movies without anything edible at handFor many it makes no sense. Therefore, you need somewhere to place a popcorn, chips, nuts and everything that is usually chewed, washed down with sweet soda or something else. So the mobile coffee table (preferably two-level, to fit everything and not run constantly to the refrigerator) will be extremely necessary. It is not recommended to use glossy or reflective surfaces, so that they do not glare and do not interfere with the viewing of the film.

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. To create high-quality, surround sound, you have to work hard, but nothing super complicated in this. First of all, you need to create an acoustic balance. If you hear a clear 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 put a cover of natural wool on it. 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. Having identified parallel surfaces, place on one of them a sound-absorbing or scattering panel. It will not allow repeated reflections, which will create a quality sound and finally remove even the most insignificant echo.,,,, Joshua McHugh,,,
