Here's the short and sweet... I plan to turn this basement room into a home theater, but it comes with some interesting challenges.
is the fact that the breaker panel is going to live right behind my screen. I have a couple of ideas to work around this. The easiest would be to install a motorized screen, but I'd prefer not to, as there's almost always a bit of waving even with tensioned screens. I'll likely build a Spandex screen, and use a centered 20" articulating mount. That way I can move the screen 20" away from the wall, and tilt it to the right to duck behind and flip a breaker if need be.
is the lopsidedness of the room. There's the soffit along the top left, a framed-in pole on the left, and then a ledge on the right. I'm not quite sure how to handle this without some significant reconstruction, which I'd like to avoid.
The room is 14x21, and everything about it is almost perfect for a home theater room. Ya know, except for those few things that aren't.
Here's my mock-up proof-of-concept that I think looks pretty decent, assuming I can get some custom curtains made that fall along those lines perfectly.
Any suggestions? I'm all ears!
