Bedroom 80” screen paint job (england)

Hello people im derek from birmingham england.ive got a question to ask as i cant get an answer im england. Ive recently swapped bedrooms in my house and refurbished the bedroom. I used to use a projector onto a cheap screen,it was crap And floppy and probably cheapo,photo attached.in my new room projection onto the Newley liner papered and painted white walls ,the picture now better than projecting onto my old screen.pics attached. Can i paint this area to further enhance the picture of my screen please ?without using a canvas screen. Im a basic user not an expert. I use it for videos and gaming. I basically need a tin of paint and instructions. Any advise would be great ,and hoping to get it done to see tyson fury kick the crap out of wilder .

You should treat the room to remove reflected light. That will improve your image more than anything.

That would be one solution.....but that leaves the Ceiling unattended, and the Ceiling is the absolute worst offender...and exacerbated by the fact that your PJ is so bright. Well...maybe kind sorta, being a Elephas.


And going full out "Black" is not necessary. Any Dark, non-sheeny Color will suffice.


Steve's point is that since you need to improve your image quality, drastically reducing the Image's own reflections from bouncing off ALL the surfaces will have a terrific impact. 6' wide Curtains at each side of the Screen wall would / could only help, but those wall are much further away from the Screen that is the Ceiling. Hanging Dark curtains would certainly be better than naught...but again...that Ceiling!



If that Flat is yours and you can paint, painting the Ceiling a Mid-Tone Grey would help get you 80% better results. If not the entire Ceiling...then out about 4' would still deliver a walloping improvement. Why...it would even be...dare I say it...smashingly Brilliant!


The screen wall itself is not a factor....so if you did likewise...paint the side walls out 4', that would round things out.

The ceiling may be the worst offender, but that image is way too high. If it was dropped down to eye level viewing, the ceiling would pose less of a problem, although he might still want to treat it.

If this is in the bedroom, the normal screen height rules might not apply.

OK then...that shade of Grey, while certainly better than White, is more suitable as a Wall color



For the best look...go as dark a Flat Grey (use a good Pot of Acrylic Paint (*like Dulux Light & Space*...but PPG is a good Paint also...)as you can manage, and paint the Side walls about 1/2 as dark.


Avoid using a true Flat Latex.....gotta be Acrylic so that the Paint won't look "dusty". But you do want it to be a "Flat"....or a Matte is OK.


Do that bit of redecorating and you will see an incredible difference in image quality.
