My mini home theater room


I had a loft where I did most of my movie watching, of course when the wife was downstairs watching her reality shows I would constantly hear "turn it down". I finally decided to wall off the loft and make it my own movie room. The room itself is 12 by 15, small for a home theater area, but I tried to make it as best I could and also didn't want to make it permanent in case we ever decide to sell. I also left the carpet since we plan on doing the whole upstairs with something nicer later.

What I was starting with:






Rear speaker stands:









Final rear mockup before I transfer design to plexiglass

Wow, very impressive! I like the dark red and black look you got going on there. Is that plexi-glass or actual glass on the surround sound speakers stands? The surround speakers just seem to be a little too high for someone who would be sitting in the couch there watching a movie, normally they are just a little bit higher than the back of the couch. But looks great! I like how you concealed the front speakers behind the what look to be custom speaker grilles.

Nice work, it looks great! Realistically though, you're watching tv downstairs while your wife watches the reality shows in HER new theater room upstairs . j/k.
