Home theaters are a luxury that many of us aspire to. They’re a place where we can escape to an imaginary land, a point in history, or another life for a couple of hours. Having your very own home theater room also means you won’t be sitting in a stranger’s crusty popcorn, suffering annoying crunching throughout the film, having your chair kicked by a child in the row behind, or miss the best movie moment during a toilet break. We’ve put together a collection of 50 home theater designs that not only avoid the general public but create a luxurious setting. These inspirational spaces deliver ideas for movie room seating, lighting, wall decor, and more.

Blue lounge chairs and a pale blue carpet give this concept a splash of soothing color.

The floor is split into raised sections to create an optimum viewing experience for all. Each raised platform is edged with bright LED light to prevent trips and falls in the darkness.
Round lounge chairs are bordered with LED light too, which draws attention to their curvaceous silhouette. Side tables are highlighted with LED ribbons so that you don’t drop your drink or snacks in the middle of the movie.
Raw concrete and wood slats create a textured border around the big screen. A white marble mantel shelf draws a chic underline.

Don’t feel that you have to block off all windows to create a serious movie-watching experience. Dark window blinds darken the room effectively when needed. Install wall sconces on the posts between the windows to build a movie theater vibe.
Make a minimalist movie theater with blank walls, atmospheric lighting, and comfortable seating. Tub chairs and matching footstools offer all the comforts of home.
Combine bright and colorful living room decor with a movie-goer’s comforts. This cheerfully sunny space includes a convenient popcorn bar by the entrance. Drinks are tucked away in the fridge and cabinet space underneath.

Modern artwork makes a splash of bright color against gallery white walls. Edge-to-edge balcony doors bring in copious amounts of sunshine when the movies aren’t rolling. Heavy blackout curtains block the sunlight when it’s time to settle down for entertainment.
Traditional wooden elements, a coffered ceiling, and patterned carpeting give this space a classic feel.
