Alright, now that I'm back from work I can start explaining the plan a bit more...

We are on a budget and already own some of the equipment we are planning to use for that build, feel free to chime in and suggest other equipments or ideas. We might use them now and change our plans or eventually use them when we switch equipments.

The goal: Have a functional basement that will integrate the following:

-Neat storage for kids toys (out of sight)
-Play area for kids
-Media room area
-Connection to storage server and connection to video, audio and pictures
-Connection to gaming PC to play games (I hate consoles)
-Home automation phase 1: lights and A/V control
-1 remote for everything
-All the equipment neatly out of sight (A/V rack)
-Must have room to put my computer desk
-Want to have the A/V rack in a back room (we don't want to see any equipment except TV and speakers)

Flooring:
-12mm laminate flooring
What do you guys think about the idea of using laminate?

Ceiling:
Suspended ceiling
What type of ceiling tiles you guys think I should buy?

Equipment:
Samsung 40 inch LED TV
8X1 HDMI switch
Server rack
Old Dell PC for mounting drives and DLNA server
Samsung BD-F5100 bluray player
TP-Link 24 port gigabit switch
Logitech Harmony 900
Logitech k810 backlit bluetooth keyboard
Razer orochi bluetooth mouse
Yamaha RX-V365 AV receiver
Monoprice 5.1 Channel Home Theater kit
Monoprice bluetooth audio interface
Insteon light dimmers (3)
Insteon 8 scene wall plate
Insteon motion detector
Insteon IR blaster
