Home Theater? Don't Forget The Blockout Curtains!

7th Mar 2016

Home theaters aren't just for the rich and famous anymore! Thanks to affordable technology and our blockout curtains, many families are able to enjoy a movie theater experience without ever leaving the comfort of their own home. If you're thinking about building a home theater, our blockout curtains online are a great option for blocking out any and all outside light so that you can enjoy your movie like you're in a real theater.

Today we're going to take a look at a few other tips to making your home theater the envy of the neighborhood.

  • Before starting any work, do a dry run with your setup to make sure you know where your plan calls for seating, speakers, and screens. This will help you troubleshoot any larger issues with your room before they arise. Spend a few minutes looking around your theater room and plan out where everything will go so that you're able to better anticipate roadblocks.
  • Don't forget to think about the little things, too. For example, if your home theater is going to be in a basement and you'll be hanging a projector, make sure you're aware of whether or not you have ceiling-mounted heat vents and where they're placed. If you have a ceiling heat vent in between your screen and your projector, you'll get a reflection on your screen similar to a blacktop on a hot day.
  • Don't cut corners! We know it's easy to do, especially later in the project, but you'll likely end up kicking yourself later for not adding that extra outlet. When you finally settle in to watch your first movie in your new home theater, you'll want to be able to enjoy it - not focus on that exposed wire you didn't hide!
