Designing a home theater room can be such a enjoyable project because you can play around with cool and unconventional decor ideas that you may be hesitant to use throughout other main living areas in the house. This awesome black and slate grey space is a great example of how you can make home theater design contemporary and elegant while still incorporating those fun elements that are characteristic of a movie room, like riser seating, plush leather recliners and state of the art lighting. They key to preventing the room from looking too cliche is to avoid cheesy home theater decor and instead remember the interior design rules you use throughout the rest of your decorating.
I have been wanting to upgrade our home theater design for ages now, but just now committed to doing it with my recent bonus check. As you can see we have a great foundation to our home movie theater -- the couches are in place and the projection system and lighting is set up but I still feel like it looks a bit outdated. I would love to switch up the paint palette to something a bit more edgy and contemporary. I have played around with the idea of all black walls with some cobalt accents on the ceiling, couches and sconces because I think it would look nice against the grey carpet and modern couches. The thing that I want to transition the most is the home theater lighting from these very basic wall sconces to something real eye catching and contemporary with dimmable LED lights.
This is such a cool home theater design, and one I definitely want to try to recreate in our bonus room. Most theater room decor that I have seen is in primarily grey and black color palettes without many bright accent shades to bring fun and personality to the design. These rooms are supposed to be purely for entertainment and, as such, you should be able to play around with color and pattern in whimsical or edgy ways that you would be afraid to in other areas of the house. I love how they incorporated bright red home theater design ideas that bring out the shades in the movie posters hanging on the walls. Because the seating, ceiling, and trim is all in a simple black color, the "loud" carpet and bright red walls do not seem overwhelming.
This is such an incredible unique home theater design because it features a very unexpected all-white palette. Generally you see a home theater room painted in darker shades of grey, black and blue to provide that cave-like feeling while watching your favorite movie. This unique twist on that design is something I have never seen before, but it works surprisingly well. I especially like the awesome velour couches because they look so shiny and futuristic -- not to mention super comfortable. I would love to swap our current dark leather home theater seating with something like this because I think it would make our home look a little bit different than all the rest of the designs I have seen.
One of my favorite projects to take on is an awesome home theater design because you can be playful with different trends and color palettes. My clients are usually pretty open minded when it comes to incorporating unique home theater ideas because it is one of those rooms in the house that are never really used for formal occasions and essentially are made just for fun. The cool retro British-themed space is by far my most funky theater room in my portfolio and, I must say, the one I am most proud of. Between the bold carpet, paneled walls, and reclining stadium seating, this theater room has it all. I mean check out the awesome vintage movie posters that we hung between panels -- could it get any more on theme than that!
Movies are a very important part of my life, which is why I wanted to ensure I had my own media room in my home. A big screen on which to show films was essential, but my media room decor goes beyond just that obvious inclusion. There are two rows of seats, set out in a cinema style with drink holders in the armrests, but with noticeable differences, being comfortable reclining seats that are much larger than in most cinemas. There are also just eight of them, enough for family and friends. When looking for theater room ideas, movie memorabilia sprang to mind. I kept it simple and restricted it to just two monochrome prints of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.
