Ok so I am having a bit of a conundrum. I am in the process of buying a house that has a family room that is too small for what I really want to do for a home theater. I have only one option if I ever want to have a front projector or 75"+ TV with a decent speaker setup. And thats do away with the "formal dining room" and put it on the large wall there. There is the kicker. That wall is what you see when you first come into the house. I have attached a picture below showing the view as you just come in the main door. My question is, can I do something here without it looking out of place. Is it tacky to walk into a house right into the theater? My wife thinks it is and there would be no way to make it look decent. I was thinking about making a sitting area and having a retractable screen with a nice painting behind it. What do you guys think? Doable? Or should I just be happy with a 65" with a 2.1 system in the family room?
