Of course this is all personal opinion and who knows maybe I am just justifying the spend but bottom line is the room sounds amazing and also keeps all but major base scenes inside the room. Just food for thought.
Hoping that is the case
Doing pergo-type wood floors with a large rug over the middle area.

So the main square area with the screen is about 13x13, and the room is 25' long total. I made a wall on the other side of the seating area to balance it and have a spot for the right speaker (when seated). The screen will be 138", which is 120" wide and 68" tall. Equipment:
Video: Epson 5040UBe projector
Receiver: Onkyo TX-NR797 9.2-Ch. (I will be running 5.1.4)
Sub: SVS PB-1000 Subwoofer (Black Ash) - 10-inch Driver, 300-Watts RMS, Ported Cabinet
UHD Player: Panasonic DP-UB820 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player with HDR10+ and Dolby Vision Playback
Fire Stick 4K
Shield TV (2019)
HTPC (old one, will use when needed, maybe for MadVR if I upgrade it)
Speakers (in wall) -
Front L/R x 2: Polk Audio 265-RT
Front Center x 1: Polk Audio 265-RT
Side L/R x 2: Polk Audio 65-RT
Atmos x 4 Ceiling: Polk Audio RC80i
eventually I'll probably have an Xbox Series X and PS5 downstairs too but not right away. Until then I'll probably cart my Xbox One X and PS4 down there when needed.
