theatre. Controlling the light, casting a big enough image,
and reducing ambient sound, are just some of the features

If you’re designing a new home theatre or refurbishing an
old one, then there are a few things you should be thinking
seriously about. Here, we give you the top four
design tips that help to create the perfect
home theatre room.

neutral paint colour or a dark grey.

Design your home theatre to resemble a cinema
Traditional commercial theatres have
sloped floors with tiered seating. Seated tiering in your
home theatre is quite simple, and all you need are joists of
2x8 boards set edge-to-edge. Try using half-inch interior
