Our spare room wasn't used so we turned it into a cinema room – people are stunned when I say where the sofa's from | The Sun

THEY had a spare room that was never used.

So instead of leaving the space bare, Ben Gillan decided to turn it into an incredible home cinema room.





He took to TikTok to share the room transformation, which took it from a bare, uncarpeted and cold room into a cosy one perfect for watching the latest blockbuster.

Along with grey carpet, they painted the walls black and put in crushed velvet black curtains to ensure that the room was as dark as possible for movie time.

Ben also shared a room tour on TikTok as he explained where each part of the room had come from.

"Our couch is from Ikea," he said.

To ensure that film viewers were nourished while watching the movie, there's also a snack bar behind a curtain – complete with a slushy machine and a popcorn machine.

"The snack bar is behind the curtain, along with the X-box and the sync bar and all the cables which we ran around the room back to here," he said.

"We do have a slushy machine and a popcorn machine.

"And we do have these little tables that we keep all our drinks and snacks on while we’re watching the movie We got those from B&M."
