Blinding Inspiration: Create a movie theatre at home with white blackout roller blinds
As the evenings draw in and the weather gets colder, there’s no better time than now to cosy up with a blanket and hot chocolate in front of a festive film. Whilst most homeowners choose to play films on their television screens, many often overlook the impact blinds can have as a projector screen.
Here, we will help you choose the right type of blinds which will act as the screen to project your favourite films onto, creating the perfect movie theatre in the comfort of your own home.
Type of Material
Due to their thick lining and innovative design, blackout blinds completely eliminate any unwanted light, so you can create the perfect ambience for your movie theatre. As such, blackout blinds are typically the most popular type of blind to act as a projector screen, because they block out all light from your home when required. Not only will this darken the room, but it will also eliminate any glare through the material which might distort the image on the screen.
The insulating capability of blackout blinds means that less heat will escape through the windows in the room, helping to create a warm and cosy environment for you and your family to enjoy the film.
Here at Kingston Blinds Direct, our collection of made-to-measure blackout blinds are fitted neatly inside the window to ensure a flawless fit. With our range there are many customisation options available, from flame retardant and waterproof fabrics to a wide range of colours and patterns.
Type of Blind
Rather than choosing slatted vertical blinds which can distort the picture on the screen, the smooth soft cloth surface of roller blinds makes them ideally suited to act as a projector screen for a home theatre. Roller blinds are simple to clean and make for easy viewing, so you can be sure there won’t be any marks which may interfere with the image on the screen. When they’re not in use, the blinds can be retracted to the top of the window and gather neatly out of the way.
As with our blackout blinds, all of our roller blinds are made to measure, ensuring the perfect fit to your windows so you needn’t worry about any light or glare when trying to watch the film. Made from extremely high quality fabrics and available in a comprehensive range of styles, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect roller blind for your home theatre when coming to us.
Colour of Blind
Whilst most blinds are available in a wide variety of textures and patterns, for your blinds to double up as a projector screen you will need a blank canvas. Fortunately, the minimalist look has remained a popular interior design trend for many years, so creams and whites will deliver on style, as well as providing a practical projector screen for your home theatre.
When it comes to the design, the plainer the better – as such, the Harewood Plain White and Dove Cream styles from our roller blinds collection promise to inject a clean, minimalist look into your home, whilst providing the perfect canvas to project your films onto.
