The past couple of weeks in Indiana have served as a brisk reminder of the colder months to come. While we don’t necessarily want to dwell on that fact, many people start thinking about what they are going to do with their extra time indoors. Home theater rooms have been increasingly popular choices for people. And since HBO announced a stand-alone streaming service, it may be just the inspiration people need to create their own personal cinema center. However, no home theater is complete without the “theatrical feel” achieved by painting the interior.
It’s amazing how simply selecting the right interior paint colors can mimic the feeling of stepping into a movie theater each time homeowners prepare to watch a movie. When selecting these colors, people naturally think about the “pitch black” sensory experience they have when they go to the movies and want to replicate it. However, it’s important that they steer clear of black paint. Sure, it may look great in the dark, but it can seem a little drab during the day.
It’s also important to remember that when the lights come on in the theaters, the walls chairs and carpeting is rarely ever actually black. Certain colors transform with lighting (some more than others) and lend themselves to multiple relaxing situations. Charcoal grey and navy blue are examples of two interior colors that can darken a room significantly, but also look great during the day.
I’ve discussed using accent walls in the past, with theater rooms being a great time to try them out. If the thought of an all blue room isn’t attractive, I suggest choosing a dark color and painting the wall the TV or projection screen is on. This will create a “framing” effect and draw the eye to the screen naturally. Plus, it makes the screen seem even bigger, enhancing the experience. And for those who need symmetry, try painting opposing walls to keep things balanced.
