Why Interior Design is Important in a Home Cinema

Why Interior Design is Important in a Home Cinema

Interior design brings together all the elements of a home cinema and adds to the feel and theme of the room. Some of the award winning rooms we have created have been the result of design challenges, or when we’ve been given free rein to unleash our creativity. We always like to encourage our clients to get involved on the design side by discussing their likes and dislikes, or providing images of spaces they’d like to recreate. We then come up with a story board of different materials, fixtures and pieces that we feel will bring the room together and fit the client’s brief.

You might call it a home cinema, you might call it a media room – it’s certainly a unique space, combining two projection systems on the one screen – and a successful one. But the project, part of a larger home renovation, was not without its challenges. “The primary goal was the cinema,” the owner tells Sound+Image. “I wanted a great cinema experience from the projector and the screen, and obviously on the audio side of things as well. But a secondary benefit was what I call an ‘art wall’ – something I thought would really enhance the space, if it was technically possible.”

Picture those allegedly 4D rides you’ve been on in amusement parks, where the seats throw you around like a mechanical bull. Now forget them entirely, because they are nothing like the incredible, immersive D-Box motion chairs you can have installed in your home cinema, according to local expert installer David Moseley. “As soon as you talk about ‘motion’, people go…

Wavetrain Cinemas joined with David Leisk Electronics to effect this transformation from humble basement to state-of-the-art cinema. How many homes have an unused room?
