With lockdowns being implemented and lifted across the globe over the last year, home theatres and home viewing of movies and shows have become the ‘new normal’. All streaming companies have seen a major increase in people creating new accounts as well as increased revenue.
We are all part of this growth. Gumtree can help you invest in your own home theatre system without breaking the bank. But what do you need to consider before you do?
- Not just for movies: A home theatre is not just for movies – it can double into a game room or multi-media room. Just include the TV, Internet and streaming services to turn it into the favourite room in your home.
- Neighbours: With apartments and complexes, it may be beneficial to consider soundproofing to ensure your neighbours are not adversely affected by your new home theatre system.
- Set your budget: As mentioned before, home theatre systems do not have to break the bank. The simple systems need a large screen television with a few speakers around the room. The higher end systems may consist of a screen or projector. For added comfort, you can add recliners, snacks and mood lights for that perfect movie experience.
Having a home theatre system is most fun when shared with family and friends. With the pandemic and its associated lockdowns, it is not easy to socialise, but organising movie nights can bring that fun element back into your life! Call a small group over for that big game or the new movie everyone has been waiting for. Take advantage of the immersive sound and crystal clear images to turn your home into the next best thing after the cinema.
Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to shop! Head to gumtree.co.za or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android) and don’t forget to use your location settings to find home theatres close to home.
