When you setup your own home cinema you are going to want to make sure that you have the right feel whenever you walk into the room and a good way to do this is to adorn the room with various home cinema furniture which can add to the experience and improve the aesthetics of the room.
So what are the different types of home cinema furniture that you can buy and how far should you go to personalize your system?
Well, there are several different categories of home cinema furniture which I will go through one by one below so that you can see which one fits in best with your style and go out and make your home cinema become a reality.
Different Types Of Home Cinema Furniture
Home Cinema Seating
We have covered this more specifically in another article but in essence you want to make sure your home cinema seating matches in with the rest of the aesthetics of the room. There are many different types of seating and considerations when you are looking to buy them and so please check in with the specific article for the fine details. Needless to say, you have to sit somewhere and it’s much better on proper seating rather than just an old sofa you’ve slung in the room.
Quite often overlooked are the possibilities of using bean bags in your room. Now most people may think this will detract from the room but when you think about it a home cinema system is really a toy and a plaything and not something that you actually need in your home and so who better to use it than your kids or friends kids that come over. They will love to play games consoles and other devices on it just as much as watching movies and so you can make the environment nice for the kids as well with the use of some good looking bean bags. I personally like to use black leather and you can get some really nice ones that are not too expensive if you shop around.
Pictures and Posters
There are essentially two different ways you can setup your home cinema system. You can either design it in a specific style such as Art Deco or other periods or you can make it more of a commercial cinema and the best way to do the latter is to adorn the walls and entrance corridor with movies pictures and posters from some of your favourite films over the years. I personally feel this gives a really nice touch to make the cinema your own as it shows the different types of films that you personally like. It also gets everyone in the right mood as they walk into the room which is the best way to begin a great movie experience
I love all different kinds of movie memorabilia and it just looks so good if you can get hold of some actual artifacts from movies throughout the years. They become such talking points and really draw everyone into the world of the movies. It doesn’t actually matter how small a role the item played in the movie, if you can get the original one then it will really make your home cinema system shine. You will be surprised how easy you can pick this kind of home cinema furniture up and it also won’t break the bank.
Popcorn Machines and Fridges
These two items are almost requirements in my opinion if you are setting up a dedicated room for your home cinema. Everyone loves popcorn when watching a movie so why not recreate this at home with your own machine. They are not too expensive to buy initially and then the popcorn really costs nothing.
A fridge is also a cool thing (excuse the pun) to have installed to keep your soft drinks or beers cold during the film. A word of warning here though. Some fridges and popcorn machines to that matter can be very noisy during operation and even when in standby so check this out before you invest in one. Remember that even a small amount of noise will be noticeable on those very delicate quiet scenes where absolute silence is required to experience the atmosphere. The last thing you want is to hear a buzzing in the background which will put you off the whole thing.
Cupboards and Storage
Finally, don’t forget to allow for adequate storage space, usually at the rear of the cinema. It’s this type of home cinema furniture that can be overlooked but you are always going to need somewhere to store all your DVDs even if you have your own hard drive system it’s still really nice to have the boxes for visitors to browse though while waiting for the movie to begin. It ignites discussion and you may pick up a movie you haven’t seen in years which will inspire you all over again.
