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!

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.

I would highly recommend this electric desk to all ages, the the best decision I’ve made for my sons study table. The service was excellent, prompt in responses and on time schedule with the delivery time. The removalists were very careful bringing into our study room on the second level.
Very happy with the purchase!!

Amazing e-desk - sturdy, spacious and great quality wood. It fits well into the home office. Assembling it was mostly straightforward with the video! Thanks Guy

I'm only just reading all the Google Reviews now, just before writing this, after having purchased and built a desk; and this is basically going to be saying the same thing as all the others, the owner, Guy, is absolutely great and so are the desks. There's a reason why all the reviews are genuine 5 stars. I had been doing research on numerous sit/stand desks and the manufactures of the frames/motors that go into them. I wanted a good quality and reliable setup so I decided to something that utilised Linak (manufacturer) hardware and so I set out trying to find a sit/stand desk that used them. As I was after something specific, I contacted a number businesses before placing an order so that I understood exactly what it was I was purchasing. Unfortunately most of those other businesses seemed more interested in B2B, and a couple didn't even bother responding. I had even gone so far as to contact a business in Canada, who eagerly could supply everything, but unfortunately not for running on 240v. I almost gave up and was just about to head to Ikea. Then I came across Ergomotion. I shot through an email with some questions about their Edesk, and I got a clear informative response within hours. The owner, Guy, kindly followed up, answered further questions, and was also able to order extra parts from Linak on request. To ensure I had all the information I needed before placing an order, he even went so far as to warn me of a slight upcoming price increase. Guy knows his products, knows it in great detail and has a wealth of helpful knowledge.

Great customer service and desk is exactly as described. Setting it all up was straight forward too. The electric movement up and down is really smooth and quiet - couldn't be happier!

After a very unpleasant and disappointing customer service experience with another desk from one of the more "well-known" commercial standing desk companies, I came across Ergomotion and Guy after extensive research to find a replacement and I am glad turned out this way. Dealing with Guy was an absolute pleasure, he was able to answer all my questions and provide me with a range of customisation options including a solid rubberwood desk top which I decided on after seeing the desk in person. In the end, I ended up with a higher quality desk and look forward to continue using it for years to come. Thanks Guy!

We’ve had an Ergomotion High /Low Desk since 2015, well before standing at a work station was a “Thing” in Australia. It’s been fabulous! It’s reliable, speedy and quiet in its height adjustments. Guy, the business owner, is approachable for after sales service queries. To achieve more posture positions & comfort, we use a 10cm foot stool while standing! Many thanks Guy for the great service… Cheers Avril & Tony (Heidelberg West, formerly Moorabbin)

Before purchasing from Ergomotion, I wondered how a business can actually have a 5.0 star perfect rating on Google. After purchasing an electric standing desk and dealing with Guy, I know how. 1) HIGH QUALITY: The desks from here all use high quality LINAK motors and frames. The desk top that I received was commercial grade laminate from Laminex. 2) GENUINE SERVICE: When I initially wanted a more expensive variant, Guy explained to me the differences and suggested the more affordable variant. 3) CUSTOMISATION: Guy helped me customise the size of the size of my desktop - something no other business offered. 4) CONVENIENCE: For a nominal fee, Guy delivered the desk, FULLY ASSEMBLED. All I did was plug it in. Can't get this level of convenience with any other of the many businesses that offer standing desks. If I buy another standing desk, it will be from Ergomotion.

Amazing customer service and quality product and exceeded expectations. I would definitely recommend Ergomotion for their exception product offering and service.

Jake Port 12/03/22

Quality at a reasonable price which is made even better by Guy. You’re made to feel special and nothing is too hard which in this day and age, is honestly hard to come by. Do yourself a favour and support a local family business.
