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.

Guy was extremely helpful and made sure I got the right desk to suit me, not just recommending the most expensive one. The desk I got was at a solid price, and was exactly what I was after. Highly recommend Ergomotion.

I purchased an electric sit-stand desk from ErgoMotion over a month ago, and hands down can say this has been the best purchase I've made for my home office and I regret not getting one sooner. Build quality and usability is fantastic, was easy to assemble, all the cable mess is hidden in the tray. Also, important to note that Guy and the team has been fantastic to deal with.

Can’t recommend Ergomotion enough. Guy was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Answered all my questions promptly. I bought the Edesk with the rubberwood top and it’s amazing. Highest quality and a solid build. You can’t beat Linak tech for standing desks. Also delivery was super simple and quick.

Absolutely love my desk. I had been looking for MONTHS for a standing desk. Indecision was killing me, and my back, as I needed one desperately to change up my day when working from home. I was worried about the size, quality and durability, as well as warranty. All sites I found were either the wrong sizes for me, lack of warranty information, and not enough good (or not enough) reviews to be spending quite a bit of money on. I have trust issues. Thankfully I found Ergomotion - who has so many great reviews for many reasons. The owner, Guy, is very responsive and helpful. Replied to one of my questions instantly regarding colour options for the desk. I was also very happy to know that the desk is picked up/delivered assembled. Guy was very patient with my delay in picking up my desk, and was super helpful to change my order to be delivered, with a quick turn around, to accommodate me. The delivery drivers were great too! It was an easy and great experience and I'm glad I spent the money I did for a great product and supporting a local and small business.

One of the best services I’ve ever had! Contacted Guy and he walked me through all the options and features of their desks, and just in a few days he delivered the assembled desk to my house by himself. Very professional and efficient! Thanks heaps Guy! Tim

Bought a couple of Ergomotion's edesk standing desks (LINAK DF2) and they have been great; Very sturdy and moves up/down quietly. Guy was excellent to deal with as he is extremely knowledgeable about the product, very customer focussed, and provides great after sales support.
