Home Cinema

Get the picture: why should you consider opting for a home cinema?

Back to our Blog

The sensation of utterly immersing yourself in the cinema experience – dimmed lights, booming sound, plush seating and all – is certainly riveting. However, you might not have realised that you don’t necessarily have to drop by a commercial cinema to enjoy all of this.

Our team at Versed Automation have the expertise to fit out a cinema space in your London home – but why should you invest in a home cinema in the first place? Here are several compelling reasons.

You don’t have to use it just for films

The word “cinema” might seem practically synonymous with “film” – but part of the appeal of having your very own cinema is that you can use it to watch whatever you want, without feeling beholden to what schedulers in chain cinemas feel would attract a mainstream audience.

Popular TV series like Game of Thrones and Stranger Things as well as sports fixtures can all look great on the big screen – and imagine just how exhilarating it can be for gaming…

You’ve largely got free rein over where your cinema is installed

While it’s important that you choose a practical setting for your home cinema, the good news is that this cinema can work well in a surprisingly large variety of places.

Naturally, that cinema should be dark, at least when you need it to be. Hence, ground floor extensions, which tend to be relatively dark in the centre, and basements make good candidates for your cinema’s location. Even a loft-based cinema is viable, though be careful about the screen size.

In our modern, pandemic-struck times, it feels safe

No-one can be certain when exactly the COVID-19 pandemic will come to an end and social-distancing rules will be rendered redundant. This is a big reason why, despite all of the anti-COVID rules in commercial cinemas, you could still feel reticent about visiting one for the time being.

Therefore, a home cinema doesn’t have to be merely a gimmick – it can constitute a long-term investment allowing you to enjoy the big-screen experience without even having to wear a mask.

Your home cinema can be integrated tightly with a smart home

While we can install a home cinema in your London property, we could – with your approval – go even further by connecting that cinema to a home automation system entrenched throughout your residence. We can fit all of the smart home devices necessary and open up a wealth of possibilities.

For example, we can link the cinema with a smart doorbell so that, if someone rings the latter, content you are watching on the screen is automatically paused and you are notified about the visitor, enabling you to answer the door without leaving that person hopelessly waiting.

Please get in touch with us to discuss the home automation solutions we can supply and fit – and learn how those devices can serve as the building blocks of a comprehensive smart home.
