Posted 702 days ago by


Home theaters are the pinnacle of interiors for many, but once you’ve got the expendable cash to splurge on the media room of your dreams there are so many options. Ranging from classic to futuristic; minimal to outrageous– media rooms are what you make of them.

Start with the elements that are most important to you, and tailor the room depending on the amount of space you have, what the space will be primarily used for, and dial in the details as you progress.

As you will see in the photos below, not all theater rooms have to be a giant expense. There are plenty of budget-friendly ways to incorporate your favorite elements into a media room in your own home.

Below are 15 of our favorite unique home theater designs.

Futuristic Themed Theater

If Star Wars is a favorite past time, or Star Trek gets your heart racing– a futuristic inspired home media room might be the route to go. Go for some sleek panels, a galaxy sky painted on the walls or ceiling and a clean lined set of seats.

Traditional Movie Theater Styled Space

If a home theater is synonymous with traditional red velvet seating, curtain enclosed screens and colored lighting with gold trim and glowing sconces– you can still provide plenty of interest with architectural details.

Spacious Open Theater Room

Home theaters don’t always have to be a closed off, dedicated room. This laid back theater has a nice mixture of clean lines, rich materials and a beautiful incorporation of built-ins to keep things streamlined and not too overwhelming against the rest of the home.

Geometric Wall Media Room

Keep everything minimal and neutral, but play up the excitement and drama with pattern and paneling on the walls. Choose an accent color that’s a few shades darker to anchor the room and keep the moody theater feeling, and place it on the ceiling and baseboards.
