Customer project 130 - Infinity star ceiling in an attic conversion
In this project Bespoke Home Cinemas of Leeds turned a fairly bland attic games room into a much more stylish facility, combining the games area with an impressive home cinema area with undoubted Wow factor. An Infinity star ceiling and LED tape lighting creates just the mood for special movie nights.
The starting point. While nobody's going to turn down having this much space at the top of the house, it's a pretty blank canvas
terms of decor.
FIrst step in the process of creating the star ceiling is to fit the edge trim which will delineate the boundary of the Infinity star panels and provide a mounting surface for the RGB LED tape which will wash colour down the sloped ceiling.
Infinity panels are normally fitted using an optional magnetic mounting system which requires lengths of steel track to be fitted to the ceiling. In this instance, however, the alternative method of simply screwing the panels to wooden battens has been chosen. In this photo you can seethe wooden battens and also the dangling "carrier tails" which will bring light from the MaxiLEDRGBW light source to each of the Infinity panels. Also visible in this photo is the projector housing and the loudspeakers which will go behind the screen.
Now, that's a more interesting look! There are 1,200 stars in this display (12 Infinity panels) and the LED tape works very well.
In this photo you can see why the star ceiling system is called Infinity. There's a real sense of depth to the ceiling, achieved partly through our use of fibres in four different diameters and partly via the intensely black fabric which is used to face the panels.
Do look at the other home cinema projects in the Bespoke Home Cinemas gallery. Sadly, there are too many without stars, but they do very nice work!
