Jumpstart Your Day: 5 Inspiring Home Cinemas

Prepare the movies, some comfy pillows and be inspired to create your own movie hub


We're sure that one of the things that you love doing every summer is enjoying a movie marathon with family and friends. To make this successful, all you need are: a couple of good flicks, some comfy pillows and chairs, a TV, some refreshments and of course, the snacks.

If you have an extra room at home, you can easily transform it into a home cinema. Check out these five cool and comfy spaces that may just inspire you.

Have you seen photos of outdoor cinemas with everyone relaxing on mats with the movie projected on screen? You can create a similar look indoors by installing tiny lights which you can keep on while the movie is showing. Instead of having chairs—as seen here, you may opt to have pillows on the floor as well as thick sheets.

A Real Cinematic Experience

If you love to have the same movie house feel at home, you may have the room painted in black complete with a black sofa and a huge screen. Complete the vibe by hanging posters of your favorite movies as wall accents.

Homey Vibe

Relish the cozy, homey feel by keeping everything simple and casual! Have an area rug, a simple couch and shelves with your favorite DVDs to complete the look.

Open and Airy

If you prefer to have an open space while watching your favorite movie, you may opt to paint your movie room in light hues. This gives the space an airy vibe. Choose neutral-colored furniture and accessories as well. To serve as accents, you may display some of your collectibles reminiscent of films like your favorite action figures and other memorabilia.


Do you enjoy watching the opera? How about movies from the West End and Broadway like Wicked and Rent? Create the perfect space reminiscent of the things you love by crafting a space that's similar to an actual theatre. Cover the TV with dramatic drapes, choose elegant chairs, and opt to add some side tables for effect. You may also add wall-mounted lamps.
