Creating A Garage Home Theater
Garages are often used for storing things other than cars, like firewood, old appliances, or power tools. If you’re going to set up a garage home theater, make sure that all of those items and knick-knacks you may have lying around there are taken care of first. Here are several ways to create a garage home theater. Before building your ideal garage home theater, you’ll need to remove all items from the garage first. If your garage is like most people’s, a yard sale may be in order. Remove storage space and clear anything else that may be on the walls, leaving them bare. Make sure to vacuum and remove all dust, stains, and grime from the space before building over it. Also, attempt removing strong odours from pets or lack of air ventilation by using an ozone generator, which neutralises all smells. You may want to put plywood boards up to hide ugly or thin garage walls, as well as preparing for surround sound if desired. Painting the wood a dark black or blue will give authenticity to your cinema, but any colour will do.
It depends on how traditional you’d like the design to be. Creating different floor levels with wooden boards will provide you with taller and shorter levels to build your seats on, if desired. Purchase and hang a large LCD screen or projection screen of your size and model choice, and place it in the centre of the front wall to allow better viewing access. Purchase matching lounge chairs (dark red is a popular choice if you’re going the traditional route) and screw them into the different levelled wooden boards if you’ve installed them.
