, I don't mean to hijack your thread but I figured I could post my situation as I'm also looking for paint ideas. Perhaps we can figure this out together.
My dedicated home theater room measures 13'W x 16'D with a 9' ceiling. The room started with a builder's spec 5.1 setup, segmented with an open-cavity wall and french doors. I've since added a recessed equipment rack cubby, a half-height door to access the adjacent attic space, dedicated power and low voltage to support a wall-mounted TV, ceiling mounted projector and 5.2.4 Atmos speaker setup.
The front stage are Definitive Technology UIW RLS II
in vertical orientation. Rear surrounds are UIW RSS II
, height channels are DI 6.5R
and subwoofers are dual SWS PB2000
, placed in opposite corners of the room. Projector will be a Sony VPL-VW295ES
thrown to a Screen Innovations 110" Zero Edge Pro
using their Slate 1.2 AT micro-perf vinyl.
All the messy work is underway or mostly behind me. Drywall crew is here now to patch the holes from low voltage work and the drill-and-fill pressurized cellulose insulation to deaden the wall cavities.
Current-state pics of the theater room follow. Walls are in SW 6106 Kilim Beige, trim is SW 7005 Pure White and carpet is 44oz Mohawk Shoreline 738.
I'll add a pull-out 17 RU equipment rack and trim bezel to finish the components like this:
Now I need to select new paint colors and am looking for suggestions. I'm partial to this look, using SW 6257 Gibraltar in a matte finish.
Should the ceiling and screen wall go darker or should I use one color around the room?
I prefer to keep the baseboard, doors and trim sections white (semi-gloss), all of which are low and away from the projector throw. At minimum, the ceiling could go with a complimentary darker shade, like these two:
