Create a movie room that is worth staying at home for
You don’t have to be a movie buff to appreciate a good viewing environment. But you would have to appreciate comfort to design the ultimate movie room, which is the starting point for this movie room mood board.
The movie room essentials
The first time I even heard or saw a home theatre room was on Cribs. Celebrity after singer after rapper showed off the room in their homes where movie watching was done. Soft, cushiony chairs and sofas were strategically placed for the best view of the movie screen. It was opulent, indulgent – and totally achievable.
It’s not really about having the money or celebrity status. It’s about the set up of your living room, rec room or even patio. A big screen is a must, and so is comfy seating. You just have to set it up so that everyone in the room has a good view of the movie that’s playing.
Movie room mood board picks
For an outdoor movie theatre, you could do the mattress route, like in the @thatssotee post Kingsdown Squeeze. The “bed in a box” is a bed that’s easy to move around, making it perfect for the cottage or for a student’s lifestyle. But if you’re okay to commit to a backyard theatre, then an outdoor sectional (like the above Melville Collection or the Jonathan Day Bed) will promise everyone can see the flick, no problem. And the is just to comfy and the perfect spot to snuggle.
The Samsung 55″ 4K UHD Smart LED television is the perfect TV to watch movies on, indoors or out. It’s light enough to bring in and out of the house with, and it’s sizeable enough to not be awkward to move. Plus, the price is reasonable enough for a “second TV.”
But if you’re wanting a seat that’s theatre comfy – like those recliners you’ve been seeing at the cinemas – then you will love the recliner chosen. The Renning chair has a sleek look that you wouldn’t expect from a recliner.
And the Whirlpool microwave hood… because – popcorn! (It’s one of the 22 cook settings!)
