I'm going to be needing a lot of help from this forum over the next few months. I've been reading about and seeing all the awesome theaters on this thread lately and was inspired to give a theater room a go myself.
I have permission from the misses to make a theater room in our spare bedroom that will give me an escape when she's sleeping all day (she's a night-shift nurse). Here's the floorplan of the bedroom area, it's small but I think I can make it work, looking for advice on here for the best layouts to maximize use of this space.
I'm thinking that little nook could be a good spot for all of the equipment; I just don't know what wall I'm going to project onto yet. Any ideas?
I have a couch that's 7' 6" x 3' 6" and a love seat that is 5' 6" x 3' 6" that are very nice. I want to have at least one in this room, possibly both if they fit. I'f not I'd get a separate 1 seater chair.
I'm thinking of using the Epson 2030 projector since it's such a small room, not sure if I'll mount it on the back wall, ceiling about midway or on a coffee table in the room. (ideas?)
I still haven't found any speakers, I currently have a 5.1 Sony receiver and am going to try to find a 5.1 speaker system under $300-400, any ideas?
The room will be starting from scratch and absolutely bear. I'd like to paint it darker (it's white now) and add some acoustic paneling in the room. Maybe throw up a few accent lights for some art I've done which will be on display there and red curtains.
Off the bat I'm trying to see, do you think it's possible in this small of a space and do you think the epson 2030 is the best for this size room 1080p, 3D for under $900?
Would love any and all feedback, I'm a 100% noob.
