Nothing ruins a home theater experience like a little light. Yes, it’s nice to let the sun shine in — just not when a movie is playing. If you have problems shielding your theater room from the elements, consider getting a blackout curtain like Ellery Homestyles’ Absolute Zero Home Theater Curtains.
Absolute Zero features the company’s patented Thermaback technology, which promises to block 100 percent of unwanted light. It also looks nice hanging on the wall, like a real movie theater! Those plush velvet curtains can create the perfect at-home viewing experience in almost any room.
These curtains also promise to reduce up to 40 percent of unwanted noise. That means you can also shield yourself from a little of the noise coming from upstairs or outside.
According to Ellery, Absolute Zero is absolutely something that a do-it-yourselfer can install. The company sells extra-wide 50-inch panels as well as extended lengths, including 63, 84 and 95 inches.
