Who says you need to leave your house to experience the magic of the movies? With a few simple upgrades, careful planning, and help from Sunset Builders, Inc., you can transform your basement into a luxurious home theater. Outfitting a room for home entertainment isn’t difficult or expensive. So, let’s look at how you can turn your current basement into a luxurious home theater.
Choose the Right TV or Projector/Screen Setup
This is probably the most obvious item on our list, but it’s also one of the most important. After all, what’s a home theater without something to watch? Whether you opt for a large television or projector/screen setup will largely depend on your budget and available space. If you decide on a projector, make sure it has enough lumens (the unit of measurement used to indicate brightness) to ensure an enjoyable viewing experience in your basement, which may not be as well-lit as other rooms in your house.
Invest in a Surround Sound System
Having a good set of speakers is also essential for any home theater because it helps bring all those action sequences and dialogue scenes to life! A surround sound system does just that by providing sound from several directions at once. When shopping around for speakers, keep an eye out for sets with multiple channels (5.1 is ideal) and enough wattage (100-300 watts per channel should do the trick).
Recline in Comfortable Seating
No matter how great your TV or surround sound system is, no one’s going to want to stay in your home theater if they don’t have comfortable places to sit! Reclining chairs with plenty of legroom are ideal, but any seating arrangement that gives everyone plenty of space will do just fine. Just make sure there are enough chairs so everyone can enjoy their own personal “cinema experience” without having to squeeze in too tight!
