If you and your kids love watching the latest flicks, you’ll know how costly a visit to the cinema can be. Tickets, popcorn, drinks and snacks can set you back an easy $100-$200 for a night out with the family. While it’s a fun experience, it’s also an experience you can have at home for free (well, almost).
Building a new home gives every movie buff a choice of the ultimate perk – a theatre room. Many floor plans designed by New Edge Homes include a theatre room either upstairs or downstairs for complete privacy. Here’s why this room in your new home will be a family favourite and a winner for you as a homeowner.
As mentioned, a trip to the cinema can be a costly encounter especially if you have a family with young kids who love to snack on everything at the candy bar. Not to mention that everything at the candy bar is priced doubly in comparison to the grocery store! By saving those costs and investing in something like the latest TV technology and an epic sound system, you could have that cinematic experience at home, at any time.
Streaming Services Made Worthwhile
If you’re already paying for subscriptions such as Netflix, Stan, Disney+ and so on, the odds are that you’ve got entertainment sources at your fingertips that are not being taken advantage of. Streaming services have the latest blockbuster hits and binge-worthy shows, so having a space dedicated to enjoying them in unlimited comfort makes paying for those services worthwhile. Whether it’s an award-winning drama, an action-packed thriller, or an animation for the kids, you can kick your feet up without having to pay extra for a theatre seat.
Ultimate At-Home Comfort
Speaking of kicking your feet up, where can you find a cinema that you can attend in your pyjamas and fluffy socks?! At home, not only can you dress the way you want, but you can also decorate the room to relax in extreme comfort. A plush rug on the floor, extra blankets, pillows, beanbags and throws will make your space the cosiest environment that you’ll want to sit in for hours on end.
Personalised Movie Décor
Aside from dressing your cinema room with the cosy elements, you can also make the space fun and on-theme with movie décor. Think framed posters on the walls, a candy cart on wheels, cushions with your favourite Hollywood stars or movie quotes, and adjustable lighting. Take the traditional cinema vibe and turn it into something that reflects your personality. Having quirky details will really make the space special and inviting.
Versatile Entertainment Space
Of course with all of these elements in mind, you’ll have epic movie nights to enjoy. But that’s not the only advantage of a theatre room! The space is versatile to make it the entertainment hub of your home. If you’re fitting it with a surround sound system, it’ll also be a room where you can enjoy sporting events and tournaments in cinematic style (your friends will love an invitation!). Or if you’re a gamer, connect your consoles and elevate your gaming experience to a whole new level.
