Create a Light Controlled Home Cinema Room with Plantation Shutters


If you have a home cinema or theatre room, you will know the right setting and ambience is key to creating the best viewing experience. Here are a few tips to help you gain the best possible picture quality:

Blackout the room

If you have a projector or a TV and are watching it in a white room, you’re not getting the most out of the whole movie experience. When you’re at your local cinema, you will notice the interior is dark, drawing your full attention to the screen and film. The less the room influences the picture you see, the better the experience is.

As projectors can’t project black, the higher the brightness, the greyer the blacks become. If you’re in a light-controlled room, you can have the brightness lower and still gain the same visual effect, improving the sharpness of the colours and overall image.

Blackout plantation shutters

Our Shutter & Shade plantation shutter range are room darkening shutters that offer an almost complete blackout, making them ideal for creating an amazing home cinema environment.

The great thing about installing our Shutter & Shade plantation shutters in your cinema room is that you can achieve near full blackout in the middle of the day. Other window dressings cannot achieve this. Plantation shutters also help to create a sound barrier from the outside, creating the perfect atmosphere.
