Finishing Basement: Turning the Basement Into a Home Theater

Use a carpet similar to commercial cinemas. Most theaters use dark colored carpets to hide dirt, stains, and spoiled food caused by a large crowd. You can use a lighter tone as it is located indoors and not many people visit the area. Make sure that you clean them every month, however, to avoid health hazards.The seats depend on your preferences.

Some like to copy the singular cinema chairs, while others use a sofa or other seating furniture instead.

Use dim lights or sconces (wall lighting) so the entire room does not have to be pitch black.Set up a small table where you can place snacks, drinks, and remotes, especially when you have sofa sets. This can minimize the risk of spilling the food on your seats, keeping it clean for later use. Look for recliners with cup holders if you do not want a table on the center aisle.…
