Home Theater Possibilities

Home Theater Possibilities

Having a home theater might be something that you dream about but aren't sure how to make it happen.  Well here at D.J.'s Painting and Remodeling, we want to make it possible for you.  Whether you have a specific image in mind or on a tight budget, there are many ways to create an entertainment room.

Pick the Right Spot
Pick a spot that has a lot of space and preferably closed off from light and sound.  Your living room can be your home theater if you're feeling limited.  Basements make great entertainment areas as the closed off sound and light make for an "at the movies" feel.  

The more seating you have, the more guests you can invite!  Pick seating that's extra comfy.  You can go with chairs that look like actual movie theater seats and put them in rows, or a nice long couch works just as well. 

Center of Attention
Your television or projector should be put in a spot with a perfect view.  Above a fire place works for any living room to make it cozy.  For closed off areas, pick a rather long wall so you can then fit more seats in rows.  Also pick an area that surround sound can accommodate.

Why not create your own concession stand?  For limited space, add in shelving to house candy and popcorn.  Draping curtains also really make it look like you're putting on a show.  These can easily be attached with rods above the television/projector.  Get fun and creative to make you feel like you just saved yourself a ticket to the movies!

Bringing the theater to your home is more achievable than it seems.  At D.J.'s Painting and Remodeling, we want to bring that possibility to you.  Give us a call for advice!

Keeping It Traditional
The easiest approach is a traditional living room if you want to have an atmosphere of simplicity.  But that does not mean it's a bland option!  This should appease to your comfort level.  Neutral patterns are a good fit for this kind of living room.  Whether you like blue hues, fierce reds, natural greens or beige, choose colors that you want to come home and sink into your couch with.  If you decide with beige, you have more options with decor and furniture.


The Modern Age

Nursery Necessities

Nursery Necessities
Creating a nursery can be one of the most exciting moments in a parent's life.  Especially if she is expecting her first.  While you probably already know the basic items of need such as a crib and a diaper station, D.J.'s Painting and Remodeling Inc believes details create the perfect space for your little one.

Can't have a nursery without a crib!  With the space you've chosen for your nursery, plan out where you want the crib, diaper changing station, and rocking chair. Take measurements to see how much space you have to work with.  For decorating, decide on the color that you want to work with. Darker patterns can bring in a bold modern look, while lighter can create a sophisticated look. Don't feel constricted based on gender, unless you are going the pink/blue route.  D.J.'s Painting and Remodeling suggest keeping it neutral if you plan on having more than one child.

A baby requires lots of essentials.  Plan for more than enough storage.  Keep the most used items, such as diapers and bottles, conveniently located.  Proper shelving will help you stay organized and can be great for adding decor, but we suggest not placing any shelving above the crib for prevention of falling items.  If you are limited on space, investing in furniture with built in storage will be to your benefit.

While you want to have enough light to see their adorable face, a soft amount of light will do for a nursery.  Chandeliers or ceiling lamps are a great idea to create a serene room, which is what a baby needs to get lots of sleep.  Get creative with night lights by using a plug in, a wall lamp or a projector.

D.J.s Painting and Remodeling Inc. believes that a happy surrounding means a happy baby, and happy new parents.  Enjoy creating a space for the newest addition to your family.
