A separate room for your home theater

If you have your own room in your house, you have the optimal conditions. Make your home cinema as authentic as possible, since you don't have to take other pieces of furniture into consideration. Dark basement rooms, converted garages or even attics are ideal.

Since not everyone has a separate room that can be turned into a home cinema, the home cinema is usually located directly in the living room. Especially in the living room you should not only pay attention to the technical equipment, but also to a homely or cozy atmosphere. In addition to the large TV, there is also the possibility of a roll-up screen with home cinema projector, which can be retracted after the film. Regarding the seating furniture, you should choose multimedia furniture or home cinema chairs, because normal seating furniture is usually too low for a home cinema.

Home cinema in bedroom

If you only have a small apartment and there is little space in the living room for a HiFi home cinema or your TV is in the bedroom anyway, you can of course place your home cinema complete system in the bedroom. However, the bedroom should rather be a room where you come to rest. Therefore, technical devices are actually rather out of place. But if there is no other possibility and you can't do without a HiFi home cinema, the bedroom is an alternative. Depending on the space, you can arrange your home cinema system so that you have a perfect view of the TV or screen from your bed, or you can set up a home cinema corner with a sofa in the bedroom.

Home cinema system in the basement

Basement rooms are particularly suitable for home cinemas, as they can be darkened well or have few windows and are therefore already dark. Thus, you create a cozy cinema atmosphere. In addition, you have free rein in the basement for the placement of the home cinema set and the corresponding cabling, whereby the technology today also provides a home cinema system wirelessly. You can easily attach brackets to the wall or ceiling.

Home cinema in the attic

Another option is a home cinema in the attic. Attics are also usually rather dark and can be quickly converted into a home cinema. However, depending on the slope, you need to pay attention to how you place your TV and seating furniture so that you create a comfortable viewing angle. Therefore, it is important to carefully measure the room with a slope beforehand.

Projector for your home cinema

Rooms with sloping ceilings can be used in many ways. If a flat-screen TV is not big enough for you, home cinema projectors, also called home cinema beamers, are the best choice. This is because a movie screening by means of a projector comes even closer to a real visit to the cinema. The advantage of a projector is that the image size on the wall or on the screen can be freely adjusted.

You should project the beamer on a shelf opposite the screen, all other components such as speakers or soundbar can be placed on a multimedia or TV rack.

The right screen for your home cinema system

Basically, the smaller the resolution of the projector, the smaller the screen for home cinema should be selected so that the individual pixels are not visible. Ultimately, however, it also depends on the room size and your personal preferences. Amateurs tend to use a large screen, which can lead to the so-called tennis ball effect. This means that with a large screen, you have to move your head back and forth to be able to see the entire screen.

Atmosphere through lighting in your home cinema

You have a wide choice of lighting for your home cinema. Basically, however, you should avoid bright light in your home cinema.

Another way to add light to your home cinema is with beautiful floor lamps. You can either design them uniformly or create alternating color-coordinated lighting moods - this is not only enriching in the home cinema.

Dimming the home cinema

Nothing is more disturbing while watching TV than light reflections on bright ceilings, walls or light coming in through a gap in the blind. Therefore, if your room should not be in the dark basement, it is recommended to darken the area around the TV or screen. This can be easily done with black velvet curtains, blackout blinds or special wall paints. Because in a dark room, the atmosphere is immediately much cozier and reminiscent of a real cinema.

Control center for your home cinema system

The heart of your home theater system is the AV receiver. It is the so-called control center of a home cinema. But only a correctly configured device can unfold its full potential. Its job is to receive image and sound signals and then play them back on the TV and home cinema speakers.

Alternatively, there are Blu-Ray home cinema systems that offer a Blu-Ray player as a set with further connection options for your TV or console.

Wiring your home cinema system

For the best picture quality, you should connect your TV or projector directly to your AV receiver using an HDMI cable. Game consoles should also be connected in this way to get the best possible quality out of your system. The receiver then decodes the signal and passes it on to the boxes or your TV or projector.

More tips for your home cinema

Optimal distance to the screen

The optimal seating distance depends primarily on the spatial conditions and your personal preferences. Generally, the rule of thumb is 2-3 times the distance between the seating position and the display. With high-resolution 4K TVs, you can sit closer to the display. A closer sitting position is often necessary especially for using game consoles.

Sensible positioning of the speakers/subwoofers

When it comes to speakers, you have the choice between different speaker systems in a 5.1 system, for example, you should first take care of the center speaker. This should be placed as close as possible to the TV screen. Ideally, it should be at the same height as your ears. It is mainly responsible for the sound output of conversations in feature films. Positioning the center speaker above the TV, for example, is not advisable, as this makes the sound source seem unnatural when people are talking in the movie. Next, you should place your front speakers to the left and right of the screen or monitor and align them appropriately. It's just important that the speakers are about the same distance from the center of the screen and from where you're sitting. The rear speakers should also be placed at the same distance, about 60 cm above your listening position. Speaker stands or special wall mounts are best suited here. In a 7.1 system, two additional speakers are added above the rear speakers.

Install screen as wall system

A screen that is recessed into the ceiling is not only modern, but also space-saving. So it's the perfect combination of a big picture and invisible installation.

Insulate walls

Basically, when planning your home cinema, you should make sure that your multiroom is not located directly next to the bedroom, so that other family members could be disturbed. It is better to place the home cinema in the basement, garage or attic, so that the volume does not disturb anyone. Otherwise, it is advantageous to insulate the walls of your home cinema, so that you can walls of your home theater, because you will get better acoustics at the same time. This works best with special sound-absorbing foam, for example.
