18 Movie Room Ideas that Make Your House Your Castle
If you've always wondered what it would be like to have your very own movie room then these movie room ideas are just what you're looking for.
Who doesn’t love going out to the movies? Whether you love a good romance, a comedy or anything else, you probably love kicking back in those plush seats and enjoying something on the big screen. But what if you could have that great experience without having to leave your house at all? Wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to just head down to your own movie room and enjoy all of your favorite movies? That’s what these movie room ideas are all about. They can be in a spare room, basement or man cave.
What is a Movie Room?
So what exactly is a movie room? It’s exactly what you would think, a room to watch movies in. But before you go thinking ‘I do that in my living room’ here’s what else a movie room is. It usually has comfortable recliners or movie theater seating, like those plush chairs you see when you head to the movies normally. Some people prefer beds or something else to get comfortable in, but it’s entirely up to you.
A movie room will also have a large screen instead of a TV. This is to get the large picture that you always associate with a movie theater. You’ll be able to see things on the ‘big screen’ again. This means you need a large empty wall to put the screen on. You may even want to get a projector to put the movie on rather than trying to play it through a DVD player and then onto the wall (which can be complicated).
For some people, a movie room just isn’t complete without a popcorn machine or other snacks as well. It’s entirely up to you if your movie room will also have snacks or a beverage table or bar of some type. It’s also up to you just how many seats there are in the room and how large of a room you want to use. Some people use a small bedroom while others may have a room the size of a traditional movie theater.
The Cost of These Movie Room Ideas
There are plenty of costs associated with a movie room but there are plenty of ways to cut costs as well. If you buy standard recliners or daybeds to put in your movie room you’ll likely be able to keep the costs down. It will still cost you a few thousand dollars, but that’s much less than you could spend if you decide to go all out on the things you’re buying.
For someone who wants to go all out on their movie room, with higher quality seats, a state of the art projector and more, it can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Keep in mind, some people do some remodeling to make room for their movie room. If you’re going to remodel your house to add on this room or to improve the room you’re using, your costs can go up quite a bit.
A true home cinema could cost as much as a small house at upwards of $30,000-40,000. For something a little lower however, you could still be looking at around $15,000-$20,000, so think it through carefully. What do you want? Will any of these movie room ideas work for you?
