Home Theater – Final Reveal

Home Theater – Final Reveal

Here they are, the final images of the home theater.

along with all the details.

All work was completed by us – nothing was hired out.  Like every room, there are still little projects that could be done, but the majority are finished.  Here’s a quick look back at where we started.

And here it is now . . .

New trim and wall paint, DIY Lighted Poster Frames and vinyl wall decals.

The stair landing gives you a glimpse of what’s to come.

Looking back at the staircase.  The bathroom still needs to be painted a coordinating color.  All the light switches and outlets were changed to black and dimmers added to the lights.

The ceiling fans were replaced with lower profile models in coordinating pewter and black.  The recessed lighting trim was painted to blend in.  Speaker and electrical wires were ran.  A seating platform was designed and built with LED lighting along the edges.

The blinds were replaced with blackout curtains.  The window where the screen is was covered with blackout fabric so that it looks like it just has a blind from the outside.

The platform includes outlets for the power recliners and a Buttkicker which shakes the platform with the movie sound effects.

The platform was finished with peel and stick vinyl that mimics wood.  The wire hanging down in the picture below controls the platform lights which can change colors and/or do different effects.

As mentioned above, the platform lights can change colors – Roll Tide!

A hole was cut in the wall so that the wiring could be ran.  Then a cabinet was built to house the electronics.  I built a cover out of pierced metal and trim boards.

The cover is easily removable as it just hangs on 2 screws.

The extra space at the back of the room has our exercise equipment.  I have plans to refinish the bar table on the right.  It can be pulled out from the dormer for eating while watching the big screen.

135″ screen with 3D high definition projector.  We have had the speakers for several years.

Finally, a parting message at the bottom of the stairs.

This room turned out awesome and I think it’s my favorite room that I’ve designed (The Kid’s room being a close second).  Again, you can see all the progress by clicking HERE.

  1. Excellent job on the room and wonderful work documenting the process. If you don’t mind, could you tell me which chairs you are using?

    • They are the Romano recliners by Abbyson Living ordered from Costco.
