Imagine lying down in a comfy sofa all alone watching the biggest hit of the season for the hundredth time, or viewing a classic romantic movie hand in hand with your partner, or enjoying rib-tickling cartoons with your kids. Is all this possible? Yes, all this can be easily made possible by building a convenient, low cost home theatre in your basement. So, clean up the clutter of boxes and junk and convert this drab space into a lively entertainment area. Lets get started. Research and buy a good television, a DVD player and a sound system consisting of at least four speakers to give you the surround sound effect of a cinema hall. Fix the speakers strategically so as to get the maximum possible amazing acoustics. If needed, place panels or try framing a wall to avoid absorption and deadening of sound. Then, you can gather a few of your favourite CDs and DVDs in preparation to sit back and enjoy.
Its important to have comfortable seating in the entertainment area. Many people spend 6 hours per day or more watching television, might as well be comfortable. You can choose from rugs and cushions to sofas and bean bags. Almost invariably, mixing-and-matching is a good option. Create spaces imaginatively and creatively. Throw in an inexpensive carpet or rug, and place a few cushions onto it to make it a great area to lie down and relax. Keep in mind, bean bags are good for children but youre going to want to have a sofa or some easy chairs for your guests. Just make sure that viewing is easy from all positions.
Some Other Options
Movies do not go without popcorn and drinks. If you are lucky to have enough space in your basement, get a small refrigerator and a microwave installed there so that you are not compelled to run up and about all the time to arrange for eatables. Instead, have everything ready on hand and just lie back to relax and enjoy. If the area needs painting, try and paint the area yourself, or add fabric or wallpaper to add to the brightness and luxury.
Building a basement home theatre can lead to hours and hoprs of enjoyment. Work innovatively and you can create a great space to enjoy yourself within a small budget. Lie down on the couch, relax with a drink in hand and switch on to your favourite movie. Enjoy the entertainment, the family time, and the value you have created.
