The increasing sophistication of consumer products has allowed regular people to build their own home cinemas. However, it’s not just a matter of buying the most advanced and expensive items. Below are some home cinema design considerations:

Pick a room that will allow you to easily control the lighting. It’s best to watch in a completely dark room as you can focus on the screen and the colors will appear more vivid.

At the very least, you should get a speaker system with a left and right channel, as well as a subwoofer for bass. You can also aspire for more with a 5.1 or 7.1 audio system.

Choose a screen size that is big enough to let you see the details given the distance of your seats. For some, a 40″ display is fine. Others will want 65″ or more. Refer to online resources for guidance.
