What Houzz contributors are saying:
Embrace your "upstairs" style. There is no need to throw your usual taste out the window just because you are decorating a basement. Even making a few stylish changes will elevate the look of the entire space.Style notes: A wall-mounted TV and a long, low cabinet give this space its sleek, modern look. Fresh white paint, wood-look floors and a fluffy rug, as seen here, may turn your own basement into your favorite room in the house.
No matter how small the space, pay attention to sound. When TVs started getting skinnier, manufacturers began skimping on the internal speakers. But movies are filled with a variety of sounds as well as special effects. Missing them means missing an important part of the movie itself. Five-channel home theater systems, available in a range of sizes and prices, deliver it all. For a small space like this, a good-quality home theater in a box (HTIB) is all you need. Two small front speakers, two equally small rear speakers, a center channel (that's the box below the screen) and a subwoofer for bass that can easily tuck into a cabinet or corner or sit under a basket will deliver the surround sound that movie lovers need.
