Hello.


I just bought my first projector. It's an early Sharp LCD, but the price was right for a starting unit. I'm wondering what is the ideal screen size for an 11x13 room. I'm planning to mount the screen on the 11 foot side above our TV. I have some leftover blackout material from some old curtains, so I was going to make my own frame and possibly paint it later. I want to design the screen size for the best picture for my room. I don't want to get a headache trying to watch a screen that is too big. What are some of your thoughts?

Well depending on how old could make a difference. If we are talking 37 or 55, you don't want to go large. You'll get very bothered by pixels (likely). If you have the projector now, try firing it up onto a wall and see what is comfortable, not only for size, but brightness, image quality, etc....

Get some BO Cloth. 16 bucks gets you all you need. Good test. I have trimmed mine out and have been shooting on it for three months.
