Avoid these theatre room mistakes with the help of TV lifts

Who couldn’t want their very own theatre room?

Just imagine: your very own home theatre to enjoy your favourite shows, movies, and sports.

Make no mistake, when it comes to your home there are very few additions more exciting than setting up your very own theatre room.

There’s a catch, however: to get the most out of your theatre room, you have to do it right.

Unfortunately, getting a theatre room installed isn’t exactly something most of us do on a daily basis. As such, it’s common for people to end up making mistakes.

Here, we highlight three you might not have even considered, and how a TV can solve them!

Tv Lifts in the Theatre Room

Planning a theatre room – mistakes you should avoid!

There are a lot of considerations that go into planning a theatre room.

Some of them include:

  • TV versus projector
  • Whether you should shell out for 4K
  • Sofas and furniture
  • Speakers and sound quality

No doubt you’ve already put a lot of thought into these to ensure you don’t make any mistakes here

However, there are also several lesser-known mistakes that nonetheless manage to trip-up many a homeowner!

Mistake 1: putting your TV at the wrong height

Just think about what happens when you buy tickets for the front row. For the entire movie, you’ll be craning your neck upwards so you can see the movie.

Needless to say, this is one part of the cinema experience you won’t want to bring home with you!

In some cases, homeowners might decide to be lazy and simply place their televisions on their TV cabinet, which may be too low for a larger cinema room, forcing you to look down to enjoy your movie.

In others, homeowners might place the screen way too high, forcing you to crane your neck.

Either way, there might be several trips to your chiropractor in your near future!

We recommend putting a sticky note on your wall and holding your gaze on it both sitting and standing. Only when you find a spot that you’re comfortable with should you start putting together your plan.

Not only is this more comfortable, but it also means you’ll get a better view of the action!

Mistake 2: choosing the wrong screen size

Believe it or not, when it comes to your screen, bigger isn’t always better!

That’s because with a big screen, it can be hard to take everything in properly – especially if you’re working with a smaller room.

Instead, you’ll be forced to crane and tilt your neck to get the whole picture, leading to – you guessed it – a sore neck.

So when it comes to choosing a size, there’s no wrong or right answer; it’s all about picking a size that best suits the size of your room.

Mistake 3: not protecting your screen from light

Sunlight: your biggest enemy when it comes to building your very own home theatre room.

In addition to obscuring the screen however, light also has another, less well-known side effect.

Namely, it can damage your screen!

Many screens (LCD in particular) may suffer from degradation if exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight (and UV light in particular) can:

  • Damage the back panel
  • Cause heat damage
  • Create dead patches
  • Degrade your image quality

As such, you’ll want to take steps to avoid exposing your screen to direct sunlight.

Luckily, there’s an option out there that doesn’t involve unwrapping your TV every time you want to watch something…

Introducing: TV lifts from Ergomotion

If you’ve ever been in an Apple Store before, you’ll no doubt be familiar with their smooth, seamless facades. No visible cash registers or shelving – everything just slides out of the walls, making it feel more like you’re on the Starship Enterprise than an electronics store!

Now imagine being able to recreate that feeling in your very own home!

In essence, that’s what TV lifts allow you to do.

Think of TV lifts as a TV cabinet, except given the Apple Store treatment. While they may look like an ordinary cabinet, with the push of a button a hatch opens and your TV slides out.

Once your movie is over, you press another button and your TV will automatically retract, leaving you with a smooth, seamless surface.

TV lifts protect your screen

In addition to giving your home a high-end, sci-fi feel, a TV lift can also serve to protect your TV from accidental damage when it’s not in use.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
