I am finally tackling the small, but annoying, problem of the light from my projector bouncing off the screen onto the ceiling (since the top of the screen is mere inches from the ceiling due to size). The ceiling is painted matte black, so the light reflection isn't terrible, but I just feel like there should be a simple and economical way to fix the problem.
I was thinking something simple like a thick black curtain that I could tack (aesthetically pleasing) along the ceiling and even have excess hang down a foot or two on the side walls. Obviously a simple curtain probably wouldn't be the best idea, as it might look tacky and the area I want to cover is 14'x8', so not sure if there is a solution people have used before or know would work?
My other, more expensive and time consuming idea was to use black acoustic panels.....but that would be a hefty price.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
