81 Kansas City Home Theater Design Photos

For the avid movie buff, a normal family room or living room just doesn't cut it; to really enjoy a good film, sometimes you just need your own home theater. Although it might seem like a splurge, watching the newest blockbuster with a projector, surround sound and theater seating can really enhance your movie-watching experience, especially if you have a popcorn machine or candy station to top it off. If you're really serious about creating your own media room, take time to research your seating, ideal TV equipment and home bar or wet bar options. More

What kind of seating should I put in my home theater?
The kind of seating you add to your space depends on your overall budget and the level of authenticity you desire. If you're looking for a true-to-life movie experience, stadium seating is a must. Add platforms and stairs to mimic tiers, and use leather lounge chairs as comfortable theater chair replicas. For a less expensive approach, use the same armchairs but avoid multiple levels, or opt for several sectionals and ottomans instead. To cater to those who like to eat and watch at the same time, install a bar counter with counter stools.

What equipment should I add to my media room?
Once again, budget dictates your technology, as well as personal preference. A projector and projector screen lead to a more dramatic movie experience, but the picture can be slightly blurry if the equipment quality is bad. A high-definition plasma or LCD TV might not be quite as large scale, but it always offers a crisp, clear image. If you do your research, you can even find oversized wall-mounted TVs that match the size of a projector screen — for a pretty penny, of course. When it comes to high-quality sound, surround sound is the way to go. Install speakers throughout the space, and be sure to put in soundproof wall panels so you don't disturb sleeping family members.

Should I add a wet bar or home bar to my home theater?
It's not a true movie theater without some popcorn, and adding your own concession stand is an easy way to ensure it's always nearby. On a small scale, you can add a wet bar with mini fridge, candy drawer and microwave, or you can opt for a larger investment with a full-fledged home bar, complete with your favorite alcoholic drinks and barware. If you want to go big, mimic a true concession stand with glass cabinets, popcorn maker and soda fountain machine.
