Once we first noticed this home, one of many greatest promoting elements that drew my husband in was the house film room, which sits proper subsequent to the lounge.

In our final residence, we added a projector and remote controlled screen. We cherished watching films and TV on the large display. Then, after adopting our youngsters who’ve low imaginative and prescient, we felt it was a good greater precedence because the bigger screens are the simplest for them to see.

We use our theater room each single day. It is without doubt one of the rooms in our residence we spend essentially the most time in. We love household film nights and, in fact, watching TV after our kiddos go to mattress.

When it got here to adorning this room, I searched endlessly for residence theater inspiration, however a lot that was on the market felt very sterile and I needed a comfortable, snug room.

We designed this room to be sensible, kid-friendly, and pet-friendly as nicely.

U-Formed Sectional

We had a difficult time discovering the correct couch for this area. I preferred the thought of 1 massive U-shaped couch as an alternative of a settee and two chairs or love seats. I purchased and returned two totally different sofas earlier than touchdown on this one that’s really excellent for the area.

After returning two several types of material sofas, I made a decision leather-based was essentially the most sensible alternative for our household with has two younger kids and two aged canine (in different phrases, frequent messes).

I almost bought this sectional from Pottery Barn, however the price ticket gave me pause and the type wasn’t fairly proper. A U-shaped leather-based sectional is an enormous funding, as they’re fairly often over $10,000.

Then, I noticed this U-shaped sectional and I knew it might be excellent, and the worth was far more inexpensive. It’s nonetheless an enormous funding, however I felt nice about it after comparability purchasing.

The type of it’s the excellent combination of what my husband and I each like. We selected the camel coloured leather-based and the brass coloured legs.

The large professional about this couch is that it got here fairly shortly (inside a couple of months). Quite a lot of sofas I used to be taking a look at had greater than a six-month timeline, which is tough to do when you don’t have any couch like we did.

We’ve used it greater than a month now and I can see that it’s going to age properly, as our different leather-based sofas have previously. There’s loads of area and it’s massive sufficient for 2 households to sit down on comfortably.

And a random function it comes with is a cellphone charger, which I exploit much more than I believed I’d.

Right here’s a hyperlink to our sectional (pictured above). It’s arduous to inform, however now we have the brass legs. Right here’s a hyperlink to our round white coffee table (it’s very kid-friendly).

My husband insisted on preserving carpet on this room (it got here with this carpet) as a result of he says it’s higher for the sound of our theater expertise.

Ideas For Planning a Dwelling Theatre Room

The one objects we splurged on for this area have been the projector and the couch. The projector immediately impacts the standard of your films and TV, so I like to recommend getting the nicest one your can price range for.

  • Select a darkish wall shade. It provides to the theater expertise.
  • Hold a hidden stash of film sweet. I all the time maintain these gummy bears, Reese’s Pieces and I “gather” Haribo always. It’s a revolving assortment, but when I ever see one we haven’t tried I purchase it (my private favorites are the watermelon and the happy cola).
  • Hold it informal. I really like the simplicity of this room. It’s simple to scrub, there’s nothing fussy about it and I don’t fear about little issues like a spill.
