This is a great example of how you can create a really cool home theater room without the expense of a lot of the fancy installs that you see in the mansions on here. In my personal opinion, the best home theater has stadium-style seating (meaning couches or chairs placed on risers) so that you can best see the TV. The other thing that I think is important a large screen, sound system, and ability to dim the lights. All of these things are pretty easy to find these days. Secondly, I think that people should have fun with the home decor ideas that they use in these rooms. A home theater is a space designed purely for fun, so feel free to experiment with color, pattern, and artwork to make it something special.
I am really impressed by this diy home theater room because it still blends well with the tone of the rest of the home but has that "fun factor" that I think is so important to these particular designs. First of all, the bright indigo wall paint colors was a genius move to help it to blend in with the nautical decor in the rest of the beach home. It is dark enough that it does not take away from the theatre vibe, but still in keeping with the rest of the decor. Same goes for the shiplap-esque paneling on the walls. I think it was important to incorporate the stadium seating and dark carpets though in order to make the room stand out from your average home design ideas that you might find in any other living or family room.
I came on here looking for home theater room inspiration to transform our bonus room, and boy did this gallery here deliver! Out of all of dozens and dozens of photos of theater room decor like I looked at, this one definitely stood out to me the most because of how unique it is. They definitely picked a story to tell with this beauty and the beast/old school Hollywood theater theme, and I think that it just makes the space so much more fun to look at. It definitely takes awhile to pick out all of the unique details in this home theater because they are some are so subtle. Check out the night sky that they created on the ceiling with LED "star" lights, the curtain that frames the projection TV, and the gorgeous inset fabric panels in the ornate navy blue panelling on the walls.
A home theater room is definitely a luxury that not everybody can afford but, if you can, I say to go for it with the decor and fully commit to the theme. You can have so much fun with home theater room ideas because it is a room purely dedicated to fun. That means that there are not pretentious style rules to follow, or guidelines on what type of color palette to use. Sure, most people tend to use darker colors, leather couches, and built in risers so that you can see the screen, but other than that it is certainly a free for all. This home has probably my favorite design on here because it is very elegant and classy. You can tell that it blends in effortlessly with their rest of their home interior design and does not take away from their overall style.
I get that not everybody is going to have a home theater room in their house, but I still want to post these photos because I can't believe that we moved into a place that actually has one! I don't know when this particular room was finished, but I still think that it as a lot of the trendier home theater ideas 2020 already installed like the color-changing LED light accents, mobile curtains, and stadium seating. If you don't have the space or the budget to fully commit to a space like this, I think that there are things you can do in an average living room or bonus room that could sort of replicate this. First of all, the LED lighting effects would be a super simple thing to upgrade any home theater design or even just a regular living area if you want it to be able to convert to a cool place to watch movies.
My home theater room is by far my favorite room in the house because I have customized it to everything that I love. Rather than opting for the usual home theater decor, I decided to make this a theatre/music room so that I could store my guitars and other memorabilia. At this point, the room is basically my man cave so I treat it as such. This is where I go to get away from the kids (and wife shh haha) or to just spend time with my buddies if they come over. Of course we watch movies and tv shows in here as a family as well, but this was the one place in the house that I got to pick out all of the room decor ideas all on my own without any input from others (aka my wife and our designer).
