Hide your projector. Another way to have the technology of our dreams without compromising on style is by using a motorized projector lift. It’s even possible to activate the lift from an app on your smartphone. A projector can be concealed in the ceiling or in a tabletop. Then whenever you want to watch a film your living room or kitchen can be transformed into your own private cinema.
Keep the screen hidden too. It’s not only the projector that can be concealed but the screen itself. With a motorized projector lift some ceiling-integrated speakers and a drop-down projector screen the transition from living room to home cinema can be as smooth as it is impressive. The space freed up while the screen isn’t in use can be used to display artwork or any other more aesthetically pleasing pieces.
Integrate your lighting. Home automation can help replicate that real cinema experience by adding those special touches such as lights that automatically dim when the film begins or LED step lighting that comes on when the film is paused for a bathroom break. Lights and film have always gone hand in hand — a smart host like a smart director should use lighting to create the perfect atmosphere for a film.
Cutouts in the rear of a media console do more than allow cords through. The openings also permit much-needed ventilation. Electronics get hot when in use and you'll want air to flow around them and vent outside the cabinet. This reduces the risk of fire and can lengthen the life of the components.
Built-ins give a house a sense of solidity and permanence. They lend variety and character to an interior reduce clutter and make the walls appear thicker — which makes the house feel much more substantial.
So often TVs are installed far too high as people tend to place them where they look best from a standing position forgetting that they will actually be viewed while sitting down. Placing your TV at a proper low angle helps take your eyes off it the rest of the time especially if you tuck it under some shelves painted in a fun hue. Dark floors or a dark rug will help it visually sink away into the ground where it won’t be noticed until it’s TV time.
