Garage Theater: Creating the Ultimate Cinematic Experience at Home Garage Theater: Creating the Ultimate Cinematic Experience at Home

Convert your garage space to a garage theater. To start with, make a layout design for the theater and then go ahead with these basic steps.

Renovate the Garage

Four things need to be sorted out before the garage can be used as a theater.

  1. There should be adequate circulation of fresh air to keep you comfortable for a long time in your garage while you watch your favorite movie. This can be done by air conditioners or heaters with proper ventilation.
  2. Prepare concrete flooring of the garage then put good carpet on it.
  3. Secure the doors of the garage and seal off any light from hitting the LCD or projector screen. Insulate any bare interior walls for acoustic benefit.
  4. Renovate the garage space.
