Who doesn’t want their very own movie theater in their home? Bringing this classic experience into the comfort of your media room is totally feasible with today’s technology. The only question is how big you’ll go…

Looking for the perfect “Wow” factor? Try incorporating a bar into the design! This is a guaranteed way to get oooh’s and ahhhh’s from all of your guests. When it comes to the details of the bar, consider the purpose you want your media room to serve. Watching a lot of sports? Add some sports memorabilia like jerseys and autographed baseball bats. A traditional style bar with barstools and open shelves to showcase your liquor selections would fit well with this theme. If your style is more contemporary, adding an elevated sleek lined bar at the back might be a better choice.

Another defining element to consider in the design of your media room is seating. If you really want that movie theater experience, seating arrangements play a big part. You can always go with a basic couch setup, or get a little more creative and go with stadium seating. The more plush and comfy, the better! If you have little ones who will be enjoying this space, toss in some giant bean bags just for them! Also, when shopping for seating, make sure you take into account if they will need access to electricity. A lot of movie theater style seats have electrical mechanisms for reclining, so you will want to make sure your arrangment considers that. 

To even further explore the luxury your media room is capable of, don’t forget the added convenience that comes with home automation. Your movie night can be programmed all the way down to the popping of the popcorn. With a touch of a button, dim your lights, lower the screen, recline your chairs, and start your movie night experience. The possibilities are limitless when dreaming up your own design.
