Home Cinema Installation Hartlepool

Cinema Room Installation Durham

This incredible install in the North East started life as a simple one room solution and gradually evolved into a full-blown Savant smart home. The main feature of the project is undoubtedly this epic home cinema ‘stroke’ games room which was a completely blank canvas when we took the project on. Everything you see in this room has been managed in-house by our team, from the initial design through to joinery, flooring, decoration and more.

From a design perspective this room features our ever-popular upholstered wall panels in a textured velvet finish with authentic backlit movie posters. We have colour changing LED lighting around the perimeter of the room as well behind the projector screen which creates an awesome floating effect. We have two rows of reclining cinema seats finished in white leather with the second row sitting on a custom raised platform. To the rear of the room, we have some gorgeous bespoke cabinetry which makes up the bar area. This houses a mini drinks fridge with two additional cupboards which are finished in the same fabric as the padded walls. On the games side of the room, we replaced carpet with solid wood flooring to support the pool table as well as create a subtle separation between the two parts of the room.

Savant act as the brain of this system controlling and synchronising all the individual technologies. This can be managed using either the dedicated Savant smart remote or on any smart phone or tablet with the Savant app installed. We have dimmable Lutron lighting throughout with separate circuits for the main downlights, the pool table pendants, and a single angled spotlight for the darts board. The cinema features a 9.2 surround sound system powered by Artcoustic with a separate music zone and two additional ceiling speakers for the games area. This equates to three speakers behind the screen, six ceiling speakers and two subwoofers which are hidden beneath the raised seating platform. Whilst this is not a dedicated cinema room in the traditional sense, it still sounds absolutely amazing and packs plenty of punch. Sky and Apple TV are the two main video sources for this room with a widescreen option for movies and 16:9 for regular viewing, all controllable at the touch of a button.

Whilst we were first approached to tackle only the cinema room, we incorporated more and more into the Savant system as the project progressed resulting in a comprehensive smart home experience. This included TVs and video distribution throughout, full Lutron lighting, indoor and outdoor audio, gate entry and automated garage doors, a new home network and much more. This has been an amazing project to work on and the client is over the moon with the end result. We look forward to showing you the next one!
