Having a home cinema installed into your home is a stylish way to add flourish and flair to your home. There are several facets to any installation including sound, lighting and comfortable seating. We’re here to provide you with a guide to bring the best out of your home cinema experience for maximum luxury.
The first thing you’re going to want to do to achieve that high-quality cinematic experience is to install your home cinema in a wide and spacious room that serves the majesty of your Hollywood-inspired venture. A dedicated room increases the opulence of the home and allows you to completely relax and enjoy the finer aspects of the entertainment without any outside distractions. No film experience is complete without the privacy and intimacy a dedicated room will provide.
Having your very own home cinema room is an easy way to keep up with the trend and can resemble an exclusive private member’s club. Perhaps your friends have installed cinemas in their homes and you are impressed by the grandeur and want to replicate this in your own home, going above and beyond to display the magnificence of your own home cinema. It could also prove to be an exciting and entertaining project for you to work on to occupy your time. Installing a home cinema is meticulous work with a huge and generous reward at the end that will make a lasting luxurious impact on your home.
And for those of you who want to make your home cinema experience a truly high-end luxury, why not look into creating an outdoor cinema, perhaps in a conservatory or in a sheltered part of the garden. It could have a retro aesthetic, calling to mind drive-in cinemas or it could be a fairytale-like experience, ideal for any summer evening.
To infuse your home with the proper cinematic ambience, a screen-projector combo is one of the best ways to ensure the highest quality of visual experience available. Installing a 4k or 8k projector will play movies at a quality unlike any you’ve seen before and allow you to experience movies and your online subscription services with a new kind of high-definition splendour most people could only dream of.
For the most rounded experience, you’re going to want to have a screen that can keep up with the sheer power of your projector. We are responsible for installing the first-ever IMAX screen in a home cinema, guaranteeing that you will always be able to get the best money can buy. Optimal viewing conditions are essential for your satisfaction, with your every want and need being catered to. We even have the capability to stream new major feature film releases straight to your home cinema, an opportunity not afforded to many and not one you will want to miss out on.
This kind of high definition viewing puts your home cinema heads and shoulders above the rest, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the film with a state of the art viewing system that enhances both your experience and your property. To maximise your home cinema’s sophistication and style, hide your projector away in a discreet place to maintain the sheer glamour and luxury of the room.
Having a stunning, high-definition picture quality isn’t enough on its own though. Pair it with the optimal sound rig to bring your home cinema that much closer to a state of perfection.
To ensure your sound quality is as sublime as possible, it’s important to ensure your cinema room is insulated against outside sounds so that you are really recreating a private paradise for your viewing pleasure. Insulation helps to keep the audio in the room contained, enhancing the professional quality of the sound and keeping the experience authentic and luxurious.
Another way to ensure the consistency of your sound quality is to cover your walls with decor. Decorations made of soft fabrics absorb sound better, richly woven tapestry or brightly coloured artful wall-hangings add to the ambience and aesthetic of your home cinema. The sky is the limit when it comes to personalising and accessorizing your space and you can be as grandiose and liberal as you want. The home cinema is a reflection of you and your desires so don’t hold back in adding your own brand of luxury.
As with the projector, place your audio speakers in discreet locations to maintain your home cinema’s professional aesthetic. Some speakers can even be installed overhead for the ultimate surround sound, allowing you to fully and completely lose yourself in the decadence of your cinema and the atmosphere of your movie.
The lighting setup is another important aspect to making the whole home cinema experience sing. On a purely aesthetic level, dim lighting enhances the ambience of your film, naturally drawing your eye to the screen and eliminating possible distractions caused by bright lights. Windowless rooms are best for supporting the dark glamour you’re striving for in this experience, allowing for full and complete immersion.
The lights we offer are available with mood settings to complement any atmosphere you wish to invoke. This can help to add another dimension of style and sophistication to the ambience of your home cinema, allowing you to further personalise it and create your own unique experience that makes the cinema the best it can be for you.
What cinema is complete without a plush, relaxing seating arrangement that would put the seats in regular cinemas to shame? You can invest in armchairs or sofas made of high-quality leather, soft, woven upholstery or whatever other material suits your personal brand of luxury. It can also help to supplement the aesthetic of your home cinema, making it look as professional and authentic as possible.
For a more classic cinema-style experience, populate your space with rows of the iconic cinema seats made of smooth glossy leather with accented stitching, high backs and reclinable controls. These controls help to make the seats more versatile for your personal preferences regarding comfort, allowing you to find the best position for you and not get distracted from the film by constant fidgeting.
You can even use your seats to imbue your cinema with a more vibrant brand of personality and uniqueness. Perhaps you want to modernise the cinemas of old and create a retro or vintage-inspired setting, giving your cinema character and helping it to stand out from your friends’ installations. It will make your cinema a more attractive and alluring setpiece, adding some visual glamour, with the perfect seats for you balancing right on the line between the luxury of your personal comfort and the sophistication of enhancing your home.
Last but not least, no cinema experience should come without access to a range of high-quality snacks and drinks for you to enjoy while watching your movie. A bespoke and unique range of treats will do much to elevate your experience, putting finishing touches on the sense of style and glamour you are trying to achieve.
Retro popcorn machines are always a classic and better yet, provide you with access to the quintessential movie-going snack, just at a more deluxe quality than the popcorn bought at normal cinemas. Alternatively, those of you with a sweeter tooth could have a retro style candyfloss machine installed for an extra bit of fun and glamour. Go a step further and recreate the style of an iconic vintage candy shop with shelves stuffed full of aesthetically pretty striped paper bags and glass jars full of multi-coloured sweets, all arranged artfully to make the snack experience of your home cinema that much more opulent.
On the drinks side of things, you can’t go wrong with a bar installation near the entrance so you can select your beverage of choice before sitting down. In your bar, everything’s top shelf, with only the finest alcohols on offer. A dark, varnished wood would be the best bet to make your home cinema as stylish and luxurious as possible. For those of you looking for different drinks options, you can set up a sleek, shiny coffee machine or a silver sheen fridge that can store all your favourite cold beverages.
Don’t forget to lay out your snack installations to keep the room open and fresh, drawing the eye and acting as the perfect frame to the main body of your home cinema, highlighting the luxury and grandeur of the experience.
A home cinema is a valuable and glamorous investment designed to fit your every need and fulfil every one of your desires. Style and luxury will help it stand out and become a unique and personal experience. Authenticity and quality is the name of the game and the home cinema delivers on all fronts as well as giving you and your home the sophistication you deserve.
