Wall Paint???

Hey guys. Just putting the finishing touches on my media room. Question is would you paint the cutout area black or leave it the way it is? Thanks for the help and lending me your help. Click image for larger version

Personally I like the look of a dark background behind my screen. Black, dark brown, really any dark color will help with making it seem like your screen is "floating" when the lights are down - to me that helps with the immersion factor.

My choice is SW Well-Bred Brown. It survived the WAF, and I picked it up last weekend during their 40% off sale.

I used the Sherwin Williams emerald in a matte finish and went with Latte for the color. Click image for larger version

At this point I would just leave it and see if the reflections from the screen bother you. Easy enough to do later.

If I were starting from scratch I would have painted it black (soffit above as well).

I would cover everything within 5' of the screen with Black Velvet. Or at the very least the entire screen recess area. It will look way better then paint when complete but is more work.

That's the exact color I've used for our family office. Very nice for overall room atmosphere. It looks like you did the whole room that color? It's a good plan to test it out and see how you like it. If you want the alcove area darker it's simple enough to paint that area by itself. Looks good!

My screen has a ceiling the sticks out like that over my screen and was thinking of painting it flat black. Will any flat black paint work ok or is there a certain brand that i should be looking at?

My room is more of a family room than a dedicated media room (except I'm there alone the most). I covered mine with black carpet. I got lucky and picked up an entire roll (6' wide) for $99 at HD. I think it helps a bit for lighting. I never notice the back wall (but I do have a ton a crap on the shelves). I also helps quite a bit for sound (and I never have the lights this bright).
