5 Affordable Home Theater Finds

Drop by HMR Trading Haus to get your family movie marathon-ready


We’ve all seen those home movie theaters complete with cinema seats. And while we all want to have one of our own, the hefty prices on these things often challenge our limited budget. But there's no need to give up on the dream. You can still have the home theater that you've always wanted. The key is to use budget-friendly furniture that provide just as much comfort. You’ll want to lounge in them for as long as possible (Hello, TV marathons!) after all.

Here are a five furniture suggestions for a comfy home theater setup:

Choose a sofa that’s both spacious and comfy—you’ll need an inviting focal point for your home theater.

Put your feet up and enjoy! That's when ottomans come in handy.

Additional lounge seating is perfect for extra guests. 

Invest in a solid piece of furniture that can house your home entertainment setup. Remember to consider the peripherals, like your speakers, amplifiers, and cabling.

RL Tip: A good piece is one that has ventilation to avoid overheating.

Don’t forget about storage! Open shelves allow you to organize and browse through your DVD collection with ease.
