Home Theatre Interior Design Checklist

Are you planning to turn your room into a private movie theatre? If so, you’ll want to make sure your interior design is up to snuff. After all, the right ambience can really enhance the movie-going experience. But what exactly should you look for when designing a home theatre? Creating the ultimate home theatre experience doesn’t have to be an expensive feat. Here’s a checklist our experienced interior designers have put together to help you design the perfect home theatre room:

Room Shape

Start by choosing a room where distractions such as clutter and noise are minimal. Also, make sure there are no visible light sources other than those intended for display in the theatre room. While there is no ideal size for a home theatre room, the general rule is that the more space you have, the better. A room should ideally be about 20 feet long and 15 feet wide, with high ceilings, for an optimal viewing experience. However, since most family rooms are about 3 square meters, they can work just as well.

Retrofit And Sound Check

This is where things get fun: choosing the right projector source or 4K Ultra HD TV and audio system for your home theatre room. There are many factors that can play a role in retooling. Sometimes simply changing the seating charts, the location of the projection screen, or even moving the doors can improve the experience. In some cases, even removing a wall can dramatically change the home theatre experience by allowing for more comfortable viewing.

When it comes to projector source and sound, there are many great options depending on your budget and preferences, but we recommend opting for a projector with HDR (High Dynamic Range) capabilities and sound for an immersive experience.


Good lighting is essential in any room, but it’s especially important in a home theatre. You’ll need dimmable lights to create the perfect amount of light for any situation, whether you’re watching movies during the day or at night. Bright ceiling lights are also a good option because they provide soft, diffused lighting without being too bright. There are many types of lighting fixtures on the market today for home interiors. Just be sure not to place any lights near the screen, as this will cause glare and ruin the viewing experience. Finally, think carefully about the height of your television or projection screen, as it can affect the viewing angle: if it’s too high, you may strain your neck, and if it’s too low, you may have to stretch to see the screen!


The sound level in a home theatre is a combination of low-frequency (bass) and high-frequency sounds. The most important aspect of soundproofing a home theatre is controlling the low frequencies. They penetrate thick walls, ceilings, floors, doors and windows. For example, if you are listening to loud music in your car and you stand outside with all the windows closed, you may not be able to hear the lyrics properly, but the bass vibrations will be present. To soundproof your room, invest in blinds, ceilings or blackout curtains. This can also be helpful if you need to reduce noise in a particular area of your home.

The Furniture

When it comes to furniture, choose comfortable, roomy seats with plenty of legroom, while leaving enough room between them for large bowls of popcorn or standing up to refill your favourite drinks. Choose soft, comfortable chairs or sofas that are big enough for you to sink into. Avoid anything with hard edges or that is too small – no one wants to feel cramped while watching a movie. And if you plan to invite friends over for movie night, make sure you have enough seats for everyone.


By playing with colours and textures, a homeowner can create a sense of calm or energy depending on how they want their home theatre room to feel. Incorporating paintings, artwork, tapestries, or various furniture pieces can contribute to the look and feel of a room. In addition, adding scented candles, flowers and other small details can give the space an even more personalized feel. Decorations are a simple yet effective way to transform a room into something special.
