A large TV alone does not create a home cinema feeling on your own four walls. If you have a room available exclusively for your cinema pleasure, then of course set it up accordingly. With existing basement or attic rooms, you can plan the conversion down to the smallest detail. Loudspeaker systems and suitable spots can then be built into the walls and existing windows can be closed permanently or variably.
If you prefer to set up a cozy cinema atmosphere in the living area then the following tips are right for you.
Lighting and light
The right lighting is particularly important for home cinema. It can be atmospheric and should neither dazzle nor distract.
Wall lights are ideal for setting accents. Ideally, you should be able to switch ceiling lights independently so that you can use them in everyday life.
Sitting and lying down
No one likes to sit in hard chairs for the duration of a movie. Even with a modern living room with only occasional TV viewing, be sure to choose the comfiest seating you can find.
Generous sofas with enough space to stretch out and a good neck or headrest are therefore important for the home cinema experience.
A living area lends itself here if the space is available. You can assemble many models individually from individual building blocks and thus adapt them perfectly to the room as well as to your wishes and needs.
In addition, sofas today have many tricks up their sleeves. These include comfort features such as extendable footrests and headrests that you might only expect from armchairs. The backrest can also be adjustable. Otherwise, you can extend the sofa backrests that are too low for a short time with firm, high sofa cushions for the movie evening.
Setting up cabinets and clearing away
When the home theater shares space with the living room, you certainly want it to blend in well with the decor. Luckily, these days you can find a wide range of TV and media cabinets to suit just about any style.
Of course, the materials here include glass and stainless steel, if they can be modern and minimalist. But wood is also in demand in all its variants and looks from Scandinavian-simple to classic ornate.
On the one hand, a TV base cabinet is a perfect place to set up. And on the other hand, you hide the sometimes numerous additional boxes, the cable clutter, and other accessories here.
Some of these models can also be rolled up. This is particularly practical when the layout of your living room does not allow for a permanent, perfect place for the television.
