Home theatres are becoming an increasingly popular addition to homes these days. With home theatre systems becoming affordable, they are a wonderful option to consider for your home. When you are watching your favourite movie with your friends and family, you want a comfortable experience without any disturbance.

Have you given any thought to covering the windows appropriately for that perfect movie watching experience? Moreover, do you have any idea which window treatment would work the best for your home theatre?

There are three important aspects to consider as below:

The Light

When you are in the movie theatre, glare is never a problem. So how can you achieve a similar effect in your home theatre? Blockout window coverings can remove glare completely and block as much as 99% of the light.

Exposure to light can even damage your expensive home theatre equipment. That’s why you must consider installing window treatments that block light while giving your room the feel of a real theatre.

Blockout blinds prevent most of the light from entering through the windows and can even offer much needed insulation from the heat.

The Noise

Whether you are watching your favourite movie or a big game, you want to keep out all external sound. But the problem is that windows reflect sound, which can cause audio distortion. You must consider installing window treatments that can help bring down or cancel external noise.

Soft treatments help control the vibration while improving the sound quality. Heavy weight treatments help with the acoustics as they absorb the external sounds. The density of the blockout window treatment can also help bring down the noise levels.

The Style

Your home theatre need not just be a simple room. You can take the décor and the environment several notches up with the right kind of window treatment.

When you want to add a touch of style and class to your home theatre, motorised window treatments are the way to go. Visualise yourself in your home theatre. You press a button and the curtains go up giving you a feel of the old-Hollywood.

Even if you do not have windows, motorised curtains can help create the right atmosphere in your home theatre.

In Conclusion

Curtains add a touch of elegance and drama to your home theatre. When you want to remove the light, glare and even sound, choose thick, lined curtains.

Your home theatre is the room boasting some of the latest and hi-tech equipment. Keeping with the hi-tech theme, automated curtains can really enhance the look and feel of your home theatre. Motorised curtains allow you to control the window covers of an entire room at just the click of a single button, or even from your smartphone.
