Shut those blinds, pull those drapes and mute the group chat, it's time to lean into an unapologetic lazy weekend in—because let's be real, it's essential to rest up, recharge and binge the latest and greatest every now and then. 

Whether you've been Zooming up a storm in your 9-5 daily hustle or smashing your step count, booking yourself in for an epic at-home cinema session is never a bad idea.

Here, we've teamed up with the O.G. masters of supreme comfort, La-Z-Boy, to round up everything you need for the ultimate, cosy night in. So clear your calendar, prep the popcorn and let the binge fest begin. 

Get Comfortable

Let's be real, a reclining seat in your very own private cinema is serious life goals. Whether you're settling in to watch the culinary adventures of Cooking With Paris, JLo do her thing in Hustlers or button smash the PS5, you're going to want to get comfortable. Embrace Gold Class luxury every time with La-Z-Boy's First Class collection. Featuring power reclining for easy positioning, a USB charger—for scrolling and second screening, of course—and a powered headrest for optimal positioning, it's essential to any at-home cinema. 

Cue the Snacks

Arguably one of the best parts of the cinema experience, a decent snack bar is worth the effort. Treat yourself and go gourmet on your snack selection, whether its boujee popcorn or creative home baking. If you feel yourself longing for a little something extra, why not order your favourite in? If available, be sure to order direct so your coin supports local and goes go directly to the venue. 

Raise A Glass 

Speaking of ordering in, bring the bar to you with a boozy delivery. Not sure where to start? Whether you're looking to crack open a craft peer or savour a carefully selected drop of vino, we've done the hard yards for you. Scope out the best alcohol delivery services in Brisbane, Melborune, Sydney and Perth. Cheers!

Make The Most Of Your Screen

For the complete cinematic experience, why not hook yourself up with a projector. Don't have the wall space? No worries. Recline your La-Z-Boy all the way back and use the ceiling as your makeshift canvas. Or if you want to go all out, score yourself a 4k projector, the the crème de la crème when it comes to a boujee movie night in—not to mention it'll ensure your house is the only house to watch a flick with your friends. 

What To Watch  

If you've just finished re-watching Friends for the seventh time this year and you're starting to think you're the seventh member of their group, we have you covered. Netflix has just surprised us with the first few episodes of the final season of Grace & Frankie. Nine Perfect Strangers, which promises to give us Big Little Lies with extra spooky, is dropping on Amazon this month, boasting an all-star cast. Oh, and the second season of Mindy Kaling's Never Have I Ever has just landed—and dare we say, it's better than the first.
