If you’ve always wanted to create the perfect movie night setup for your living room but are not quite sure how to start, you’re not alone.
Recreating that movie theater experience in your home can be a challenge. It takes more than just a few comfy pillows, blankets, and snacks.
The good news is you don’t have to break the bank to achieve the ultimate living room for movie night. Here’s how to do it.
Start With a Living Room Cleanout
If you have the budget and you want to do things right you’ll want to start with a living room cleanout.
That means replacing your old furniture with comfy movie-style seating, adding acoustic panels to the walls, and perhaps even some new soft carpeting to deaden the sound and prevent it from carrying to other rooms in the home.
A great way to clear the clutter is by renting a Residential Friendly Dumpster.
That way you can load it up with all of the old stuff and get ready for your new movie-friendly living room without ever having to leave your driveway.
For a truly authentic movie experience, you need to recreate the darkness of the movie theater. Adding blackout curtains to stop any outside lighting from getting inside is a great way to do that.
You will need some lighting in your new movie space, at least for the intermission between movies. It’s best to choose soft dim lighting that you can turn on when needed without spoiling the overall experience.
A movie without a great sound system to go along with your big-screen projector system just wouldn’t be the same. Sound bars are relatively inexpensive these days and widely available. It’s a must for your new family entertainment center.
Don’t forget to sign up for your favorite streaming service such as Disney Plus. You may even want to have two or three subscriptions if it fits in the budget.
There are plenty of options in today’s streaming landscape. Enjoy and don’t forget the popcorn!
