Wooo!! You have enough ideas for carpet setting in your theater!

But, I hope you might be interesting in the tip I am giving you here. Did you plan to have some area rugs with carpet? Maybe in the dressing room or waiting room that will give new look to your theater rooms.

Here is some collection of rugs, you can find more on the internet or might be on this website "rugs gallery": http://www.alyshaan.com





Cheers!

I had my carpet installed today and I LOVE IT. I was a little nervous with my decision, but after seeing it installed, I'm so happy with it.

Looking towards the stage.

Towards the back with the closet on the left, rack, fridge cubby (with hiding children), and computer desk/movie storage.

I went contemporary chocolate brown shag. It's super soft and comfortable, has a nice subtle sheen that plays with the light, but is still dark enough not to cause reflections. It's especially inviting walking into the room in bare feet to lounge, listen to music, watch a flick.
One of the best choices I made! (And hasn't been hard to clean).

Jamis and quicksilver02,

I really like your carpet, we are about to pull the trigger on carpet this weekend after I get a final coat of paint up. I found the Shaw version of it (#00501 "Solitude"), and it looks like a deep gray. But when I called the local dealer to find a sample, they said it is Jet black and would show our dog's yellow fur like crazy. So I have a few questions for you.
  • Is your carpet jet black?
  • How much do you use that room/how often does it noticeably need to be vacummed?
  • Is there another company that provides this carpet pattern we should look at?
  • Is this soft enough for kids?
  • How well did the dark carpet go over with the wife when she first saw it?

Thanks,
Robb

Lake Boden (Black- more like deep charcoal) by Stanton
& Shaw Nocturnal.
Some photos edited to actually make it visible. Very difficult to take photos- flash washes out the color. Lighting affects the colors.

as a professional master carpet installer, these jobs look really, really good!  As a word of advise to some of the layouts that caught my attention, try to make sure the installer lines up the pattern on the risers as best he can.  Especially if there is block or square designs. Also, if there are seams involved, please make sure they are all "seam sealed."  This will prevent a lot of headache in the future if the seams start to unravel.  The ends where the carpeting wraps around an outside corner step.....to prevent fraying, make sure the installer also seam seals those edges as well before final installation.

 

any questions, dont hesitate to ask.

this installation is a good representation of what i was talking about with lining up the riser with the flat work.  Great job installer.  Who ever this is, please let their installer know he did a superb job on the installation.

I notice the carpets here are not plain, flat black....which is far from making the room a man cave or black hole. Will the non-black pattern reveal itself when the projection screen is showing a bright scene?

The projector lights up quite a bit of the room. I never noticed anything distracting or standing out. I wouldn't change a thing.

I think the black hole notion is overblown.

Here are some photos of my carpet. I just looked through my thread and realized I never posted the carpet model. The 2nd picture is more representative of the color. The first picture has more detail but the yellowish tint is not accurate.

This one is pretty accurate for the color of the carpet.

Are those Paradigm Studo 100's? How do the centers and mains sound behind that wall? Do you fell like they are performing the same way as if they were within the room not behind what looks like what might be a false wall to hide the speakers? I ask becuase i have the same line of speakers as you do if they are the 100's.
