I really like that curved granite... Then I noticed the rack and projector room. I have to add another really... I really, really like how you enter the room and pass by the enclosed rack, yet any light from the rack is isolated from screen room. I am going to have to see if I can do something like that.

What are the dimensions of that room? I did not see a buckeyedoc built thread to ask in instead of junking up this one.

You do need a projector that can accommodate the throw distance, and the closet will need some ventilation up top to eliminate heat build up as heat rises. But a small drop of the ceiling in the entry vestibule,
could hide that, and dump hot air into the larger adjoining space. One could also build those shelves with painted metal perforated panel inserts, to allow for more equipment cooling. I see the backside of the rack
is open, but the catch is hiding wiring and maybe not wanting to see inside the av closet. (The wall behind the closet also could host a LOT of media, inexpensively, and that might be a further enhancement.)

@Silva741 I have sent a private message. I have a small space in my basement I want to construct a theater with an AT screen. Dimensions are around 14x15 and I can send exact measurements and pictures if this is something you can help with. There are no complications like risers etc.

Regarding the heat build up inside the AV closet, I think BuckeyeDoc has that under control (it's Nial's plan).

And I really like that idea of perforated metal panels!

The curved bar (and granite countertop) is indeed pretty cool, I didn't even touch it, it's exactly the same as it was on the previous version of the room.

Regarding the dimensions of the room, it's 224 x 312 (plus the AV rack and small hallway, that's another 42''). It's a very decently sized room, and it allows to have 4 inches of acoustic treatments on each side wall.

Long time again since I posted on this thread, I've designed several home theaters in the past few months but I'm always too lazy to go through all the images and organize them properly to post. In the coming days I'll do that for 2 or 3 rooms.

I'll start with mfahnestock's room, we just finished the color tests. It was a rather tricky room to design, but I'm quite happy with the end result. The goal was to have a multipurpose room that looks like a home theater, with one row of chairs and a wet bar on the back corner, plus enough space for a poker table behind the chairs.

We spent a significant amount of time trying different configurations on the bar cabinet, not only with the sink placement but also playing with how long the cabinet should be. I'll attach some animated gifts.

Final renders. One of the most peculiar features of the room is the front wall, the soffits aren't very wide, and to avoid extending the front soffit to make the typical false wall the screen is suspended in midair - 24 inches from the front wall - with the speakers and subwoofers behind it, but partially visible.

The sofa's color isn't ideal, of course, but no way around that. Easy to fix with a dark cover, though.

Animated gifs showing wall color tests.

My preference goes to one of the blues, but I think red also looks cool.

@Silva741 , they look awesome as usual. I like the 3rd red and the 3rd blue. To total blackout would be nice, but it is nice to have some color in the room.

Yeah, black would also look very cool. I think even one of the grays would be nice.

Something I forgot to mention is the ceiling, it will be painted (NightSkyMurals). That's why the soffits are so tall - 18 inches - because the ceiling needs special lighting.

Room looks amazing! FWIW my soffits are 9" down and I don't have any issues charging the mural that Jeff did in my room.

Hello! I'm interested in your services if they are still available as I'm just starting my basement built design.

Cheers!

Hi you guys. I just found this thread and I love the designs!

Let me just throw out my view on the soffit size. I know that when I painted pkinneb's ceiling, they were a little lower than I suggest, but it worked out. I would say try not to go any less than 9", if at all possible. If that's all the space you have, then that's all you have. I believe, and pkinneb can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe he is also using a blacklight floodlight that sits on the floor and is aimed up at the ceiling. Depending on the size of the room... a floodlight might not be needed, but if you want the center of the ceiling and the sides so look similar when you turn out the lights... then it might be needed. Usually, the outside edges of the theater, just above the lights in the soffit, will be supercharged and the center area will not be glowing quite as brightly. Usually within about 10 minutes... all of the stars will blend together and they will all be the same brightness, but if the first 10 minutes of different brightness would bother you, then I'd suggest a blacklight floodlight.

Actually, I'd say that most ceilings, even with 12" soffits to even 18" soffits, will show that difference in the brightness that's around the perimeter and in the center just because the perimeter is so close to the soffit lights that it just can't be helped. The more space you have from the soffit to the ceiling the better, but you work with what you have and then adapt from there. I love the look and convenience of blacklight LED strip lights around the ceiling. They look nice and charge most of the stars. If you think it is then needed, or you just want to boost the center area... then you can always add a blacklight floodlight to the mix.

I hope that helps and doesn't throw more wrenches into the mix.

Jeff

Two months late, but here's Audixium room. Just like the last few rooms I posted here, Audixium's is also quite different from the typical home theater. It isn't a dedicated room, and it only has one row plus a bar. The ceiling is also unusual, as is the projector box.
