These past few years, we have all been introduced and influenced by the unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows through either Hulu or Netflix. Many of us are now gathering the family together to watch our favorite episodes or newly released movies on a regular basis. So, why not dedicate some new space and time to turn your garage into the best theater on the block? Here are a few ideas and tips to help get you started:
1. Get in touch with a contractor- In order to make sure the job is done right the first time, consult with a contractor to make sure your garage has the right capabilities to handle the possible construction and wiring that your transformation may entail. A contractor can also give you some tips for saving money when buying products or for how to most effectively use what you buy.
2. Prep your garage- Possibly your biggest task is going to be cleaning out and prepping your garage for the makeover. Once you have your garage cleaned out , you will need to make sure that the floors are and covered with an epoxy coating or with some carpet to keep the floor protected and free from future damage. After the floors are done be sure to paint the walls, add some sound absorption sheets, and add any extra lighting to add and “theater feel” to your garage.
3. Create stadium seating- to have the perfect “theater-like” effect, follow these simple steps from ehow.com to build your own stadium seating for your garage transformation.
4. The theater transformation- once you have the garage prepped, it’s time to add the proper equipment. Find the projectors, screens, sound system, and sofas to add to your new theater from either your nearest electronics or furniture store. You can also find everything online on a site like hometheatergear.com.
5. Add the final details- For the final touches, place some pictures on the walls, buy some popcorn, and grab a few movies to enjoy your new theater with your family for many years to come!
