Have you ever thought about creating a home theatre in your own house? Get started right away with our help!
In the current situation, when we’re recommended to stay home, it’s very easy to get bored quickly. We can give our house a total makeover, declutter our wardrobe, try out a new recipe, work on our gardening skills, … But eventually, we’ll run out of things to do. Doing absolutely nothing, especially since we’re under a lot of pressure to be productive, is completely valid. Snuggling up on the sofa with a comfy blanket and our loved ones sounds even better when you have an amazing home theatre in your space!
A home theatre is a perfect opportunity to distract your mind from the world right now. It’s very easy to put together and it’ll allow you to escape your reality through many others! And what exactly is a home theatre, you might ask? Just like the expression implies, it’s a theatre experience in the comfort of your own house. Depending on the effort you put into it and the equipment you have available, it’s totally possible to create the perfect space. And we’ll help you with that!
It gets as simple as the following: in order to create a home theatre, you only need a place to watch the movies. It usually is a TV, and preferably should be, but it could also be a laptop (even though you can also connect it to the TV). If you want a big home theatre setting, maybe try getting a projector – it’ll be a totally different experience!
After that, it’s time to choose the location. You could place your home theatre in a new and empty room, if you have it available, and start decorating it from scratch. Or you could slightly adapt your living room to best fit your needs!
Once you have that settled, it’s time to start decorating! Obviously, you want to take into consideration the dimensions of the space you have available and, of course, if you’re doing it in your already existing living room, you need to think about the colours and decor already there.
The seating is very important! You could play around and get some smaller armchairs to put in the whole room, but that’s not mandatory. However, a big sofa is a must in your home theatre setting. It should fit all your family and loved ones who have been staying home with you (and later, your guests) and allow you to sit or lay down comfortably.

Whoever is in charge of snacks, must make sure there is plenty to go around! Whether you like your popcorn sweet or salty, or you’re more the chocolate kind, you’ll want plenty to eat, especially when the movie really gets good! For that, you’ll also need somewhere to place them, such as a centre or side table, which will be the next addition to your home theatre.

Finally, the lighting also plays an important part when creating your home theatre. When you’re in an actual theatre, everything is dark. However, since you’re home, you can play with the light as you wish. Our recommendation is that you place your home theatre in a room with a big window, so you can enjoy as much natural lighting as possible. To recreate a theatre lighting experience, wall lamps are the best!
