Hi all,


I need help with what seating arrangement to have. My wife and I just moved into our first house (new construction) and it had a media room already built, but not how I would have designed it, but it is what I have to work with.... I'm also going to be painting the walls and ceiling black, getting darker carpetting, and possibly removing the sconces.


I am having trouble deciding on whether to go for 1 row of 5, or 2 rows with odder placement to fit 7 seats in. Here are the two options I've come up with so far:



or



And here is a picture of both views of the room:






What do you guys think? Any other ideas? I just don't want people to be too close or far from the screen. The screen will likely be either a 120 diagonal 16:9, or a 138 2.35, but need advice on that too.


Thanks for any help!!

-Jason

Just my opinion, but I would go with one row of 5 and build a seating bar behind your row of 5. A lot of people on here have done that and I think it would fit your space. Not sure from your picture how much space that would leave you, but think it is a better option then splitting seats on the backrow.


If you look around the forum you will find several versions of this. The before and after thread might be a good place to see some. Good luck!

Thats a good idea too. I also had someone else suggest (if its possible) to move the double door to a single door that is further to the right as you look at the doors from within the room, then have 4 seats in front, 3 behind...

I don't see anything wrong with your first option, but that's just me. I would, however, suggest you look into a 2.35 screen (mine is actually 2.37) as it makes all the epic movies (mostly shot in that format) look just that more amazing. If you're watching a lot of hdtv, though, you may want to go 1.78... my 0.02
