My wife and I recently moved into a house and are looking to renovate our basement to accommodate a home theatre. I'm looking for feedback on how to layout out the room keeping in mind that we would like to upgrade to a front projector with a 92"-100" screen size set up.
Here's the current layout (sorry for the mess):
-This layout accomodates the fireplace
-Can accommodate 2 sofas
-Off center seating - e.g. the main sofa facing the TV is off center due to the pillar
-Distance is short and may not be an idea distance for a front projection set up?
Now, what are your opinions if I changed the layout as follows (i.e. going lengthwise)
-Able to sit farther back and therefore accommodate a front projector and bigger screen (92"-100")
-Able to sit center to the screen
-corner gas fireplace is facing the back of the sofa and looks out of place. The fireplace currently vents out the back of the house...I can't move the fireplace as I can't vent out the side of the house due to code violations
-don't think I can fit a second sofa
What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance.
