11 Home Cinema Ideas for Your Holiday Rental Property

If you’re a holiday rental property owner, you may be considering ways to efficiently utilise extra space to attract a wider audience. A home cinema is a great way to do just that, as well as being an ideal use of a windowless space.

It’s a popular amenity and something that can be enjoyed particularly by families with children. In this post, we’re providing you with some real-life home cinema ideas and inspiration from some beautiful OVO Network properties.
