Home Cinema Lighting Design

Creating the Right Lighting Design for Your Home Cinema

IQ Furniture have partnered with lighting design experts, Lighting by Plum, to provide a lighting design service for your home cinema and theatre rooms. The position of your lights, colour, softness, type of light fixture and control of the lighting is a vital element to making a home cinema comfortable and effective.

We will look at the interior design of your home cinema concept, the technology that we will be using and how you are going to use your space and create a beautiful lighting design that is attractive as well as effective for a cinema experience.

Creating the Right Atmosphere

A 'true' cinema feel can be achieved from your home cinema by properly considered the lighting. When a movie is being watched you do not want the lighting within your room to distract from that.

Our lighting designs for your home cinema will use levels and integration of different lights to enhance the movie watching experience with depth and drama.

If we are designing a multi-functional media room then the lighting really needs to be multi-functional as well. We can create this difficult balance with proper lighting controls, lighting schemes and appropriate selection of lighting fixtures from our range.

Proper Lighting Control

Ensuring that the lighting in your cinema has effective control is essential to a ‘true’ home cinema experience. You need to ensure that any lighting within the home cinema room has effective dimming capabilities. All light fixtures and fittings chosen for your home cinema must be compatible with the preferred dimming system chosen to avoid unattractive flickering and incompatibility. The lighting design experts from IQ have years of experience in lighting design and know what fixtures and control equipment are compatible. You can simply speak to us for advice or come into the showroom for a one to one meeting. Essentially you need to enable the lights within the cinema room to dim right down to dark for a true cinema experience. This is reliant on good quality fittings, specified for purpose, that have been tested thoroughly and chosen by an expert lighting designer.

Do You Want Colour Change Lights?

Colour changing lights are very possible to integrate into a home cinema lighting design but careful consideration by our lighting designers is required.

In order for colour changing lights to work effectively, and for all of the fittings to keep 'in time' with each other, the equipment position of the drivers, receivers and control units is vital to plan properly, therefore pre-planning with our lighting designer is important.

Colour changing lights might be useful in multi-functional media rooms that may also be used as disco or party rooms.

Balance of Practical and Decorative Lighting

Most home cinema rooms that we design are often multi use spaces that may be used as cinema rooms as well as entertaining rooms, party rooms, home bar spaces, gaming rooms and even family rooms.

The design of the room, technology and lighting all must be tailored to suit the specific purposes that the home cinema may be used for.

A useful approach to the lighting design is to design for a multi-use room which will need practical light as well as decorative, background or colour changing lights.

Our lighting designers will look at the balance between white, task lighting as well as background ambience lighting to create the cinema effect.

Reduce Light Reflection for Cinema Viewing

The lighting of your home cinema room must be designed in order to avoid any light reflection on screens or TV
