A great way to save money is to stay home and watch movies instead of
paying a small fortune to see them on the big screen. If you like the big
screen look, you can recreate it in your own home with a do-it-yourself projector screen.
You have to be smart financially before you embark on this project. Big
screen projectors, like LCD projectors, need a screen to project to . You will spend probably $3,000 to $5,000 on a projector. How quickly will
that pay for itself in movie tickets? Only you can answer that question. So
before you get caught up in the thrill of shopping for expensive
electronics, think through the purchase. You know the cost of the LCD
projector. Screen costs come secondary. Although there are many kinds of
screens out there, and they range in price from several thousand down to
the hundreds, there is one great diy projector screen project.
If you are handy, you might consider buying a second hand motorized
projector screen and installing it yourself. That could save you hundreds
of dollars, both off the cost of buying new as well as the cost of
professional installation. You could also buy or build a tripod projector
screen. The main drawback with this type of projector screen is that you
have to set it up and take it down and store it somewhere.
No, for the best screen at the best price, you should buy a can of screen
paint. The top quality paints costs around $300 for a can and you only need
one can. You paint one wall of your den with the special screen paint and
you have a built-in projector screen. No set up, no tear down. The paint is
simply white when it is not serving its purpose as a movie surface so no
one will know that it has a dual purpose. Your spouse will be thrilled that
there is not a bulky screen left standing in the den or family room.
You can get two kinds of screen paint, a bright white or a pearly gray. You
should decide which one based on the projector you bought. The white is
going to give punch to the bright colors and the gray is going to give you
those lovely deep blacks. Some projectors do both well, but on the lower
end of the market, it is really a trade off. So for an afternoon’s work,
you will have a great, permanent projector screen and plenty of time to
make some popcorn!
