Basement Home Cinema

The Best Place in the House for the Sweet Spot

Basements are fantastic spaces for home cinemas. Especially dedicated home cinemas using a video projection system with substantial surround sound. The low ambient light enables projection systems to perform at their very best and the sub-terranean enclosure is perfect for managing acoustics. No windows and wall features means that speakers and acoustic treatment can be installed at the optimum positions.

Couture Digital offer a full service for your basement home cinema. From designing and installing the room acoustic treatment, to the audio, video, lighting and control systems. We can also make your basement home cinema really look and feel like a theatre with: tiered cinema seats, a starlight ceiling, and a front stage with electric screen curtains.

As the recommended Home Cinema and Technology specialist for many leading basement conversion companies, Couture Digital can work closely with our partners to deliver a complete turnkey solution; from design, waterproofing, construction, to fitout and installation.

Professional Design, Installation, Programming

Couture Digital offers a comprehensive service of system design, supply, installation and programming. We can take a bare, empty space and return it as a completed cinema or we can work with other contractors to turn your ideas into reality. The system design is our sole responsiblity although we work closely with architects, interior and lighting designers to ensure the scheme is holistically successful. System installation and programming is then completed efficiently by our engineers with close liason with other project contractors if existent.

How much our design, installation and programming service will cost will depend on the sophistication of the system and the complexity of the installation. Our charges are calculated on how much time the project should take and this is agreed at the beginning of the commission as a fixed cost to assist your budgeting purposes.

Wiring & Infrastructure

All Couture Digital commissions include a future proof wiring infrastructure. Our designs incorporate the best practices for getting high bandwidth audio, video, and control signals distributed around your property now and in the future. Couture Digital can design the wiring & infrastructure, supply the cables, fixtures and system electronics such as distribution amplifiers, and install or instruct the pulling of cable. The cost of wiring & infrastructure depends on the size of the system, the property it is going into, and the complexity of the installation whether that be a retrofit / renovation / new build project.

Room Acoustic Treatment

For any sound system, room acoustics is one of the biggest factors affecting sonic performance. Calculated acoustic treatment is necessary to:
i.) ensure the best sonic performance achievable from the sound system
ii.) prevent external sound entering into the cinema room
iii.) prevent sound escaping the cinema room

Couture Digital can design the acoustic treatment scheme, supply the specialist acoustic materials, and build or instruct the construction of the scheme. How much acoustic treatment is needed for a cinema is dependant on the size and dimensions of the space, the interior furnishings, the sound system, the building materials, and the performance / sound proofing required.

We offer over 30 styles of electric reclinable cinema loungers all available in a wide choice of finishes, configurations, accessories and customisation. From single cinema loungers to curved rows of seating in staggered heights, Couture Digital can advise on the most optimal layout, and offer the widest selection of cinema seating.
