Would like to get some recommendations on screen size for my home theater. The wife and I are finally ready to start building out our dedicated home theater room. The room dimensions are 20' deep by 14'10" wide. The wall where the screen will be is 14'10" wide by 8' tall. My ceiling angles down from 10ft in the back where the projector will be mounted to 8 ft in the front. We are going to paint the room a deep purple as the wife wants to do a mediterranean type of theme with love sacks and pillows on the floor. I know I know....sounds fruity but for me to be able to put in the components I want, she gets to decorate the room
I am looking at getting the Epson 8350 as my project since I really dont care about 3D and everything i read indicates that it is the best bang for the buck and Amazon has it for $1099. My question is how big of a screen should i get for this setup. I want 16:9 and am thinking about a 120" screen. Since this will be a dedicated theater room with a deep purple color, do I need to look at a grey screen with this projector? We have little kids so sometimes I would assume my wife would want some low light on in the background.
THanks for the help
