For the movie buff, having a home theater room is a must. Although it might seem like a splurge, watching the newest blockbuster with surround sound and theater seating from the comfort of your own home will really enhance your movie-watching experience. If you're serious about creating your own media or movie room, take the time to research the best seating, audiovisual equipment and even wall paint colors. Follow these tips to put your home theater ideas into action.

What type of home theater decor should I add?

Start by deciding on an overall theme to use for your home theater design. Do you want to have a general cinematic feel? Then pick wall decor that is representative of filmmaking, like an oversized film reel and clapperboard. If you have a favorite genre of films, find a couple of posters from your top movies and highlight them in simple frames. Hang some deep-colored velvet curtains on one or more walls for the luxurious look that’s synonymous with home theaters, and add some uplights pointed at the walls for subtle yet stunning lighting. No true home movie theater can be without popcorn, but adding your own concession stand is an easy way to ensure it's always nearby. On a small scale, you can add a table or bar cabinet with a mini fridge, candy drawer and microwave. If you’re opting for a larger investment, go with a full-fledged built-in home bar, complete with your favorite drinks and barware. To mimic a true concession stand, use glass-panel cabinets, a freestanding popcorn maker and soda fountain machine. Check out other home theater pictures to see what fun and functional decor others are including.

What kind of seating should I use in a home theater design?

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 your home theater design 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 a deep sectional and ottomans instead. If you don’t want your typical sofas and armchairs, take a look at seating that is designed specifically for home theaters. It often includes features such as snack and cup holders and reclining ability, so you will feel like you stepped into your local cinema. Also, consider catering to those who like to eat and watch at the same time, by adding unique home theater ideas like bar counters with stools.

What equipment do I need in my media room?

Once again, budget dictates your technology, as well as personal preference. Most home theaters will take the projector and screen route, which can lead to a more dramatic movie experience; however, the picture can be slightly blurry if the equipment quality is not top-notch. 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 audio, surround sound is the way to go. The best home theater ideas include speakers installed throughout the space, but be sure to put in soundproof wall panels so you don't disturb family members or neighbors. Last but not least, remember to invest in a good remote control — there’s nothing worse than having to get out of your seat to adjust the volume mid-movie!
