What are the Most Popular Home Theater Design Themes?
Highlight Your Personality in a Custom-Designed Theater
Theater systems are often one of the top technologies that our Dallas, TX area clients are most excited about adding to their homes. Going from a standard movie-watching experience to high-quality surround sound and Ultra HD visuals makes a big difference in everyday living. But the quality of the screen and speakers isn’t the only exciting thing about a dedicated home theater. There’s also the fun of getting to choose your own home theater design theme!
With your dedicated home theater, you get the ability to fully customize the room to match your personality. Need some inspiration? We’ve covered the most popular themes below.
Red velvet carpet and curtains, crown molding, and a chandelier hanging above you—there’s just something about the traditional opera house theme that everybody loves. The luxury of the room gives off a decadent, indulgent vibe, and the layout (often complete with a small stage in front of the screen) gives the clear impression that the room is meant for ultimate entertainment.
While an outdoor theater is always an option, some homeowners prefer to bring their favorite elements of the great outdoors inside where the weather always cooperates. You could enjoy a faux starry night sky made of tiny LED lights expertly interwoven into the ceiling. Add landscaping murals on the walls and faux grass carpet to turn your theater into a natural haven.
Who says you have to stick with boring theater seating? Imagine instead that your theater has converted retro cars to serve as seats while you watch your favorite film from the 1950s. Incorporate the same type of faux grass carpet and starry night sky from the previous theme, and you’ll be able to recreate that fun vibe of driving to go see a movie on the big screen.
If you like the culture of the 1950s but don’t want to do a drive-in theme, go for a decade instead! Go all out by replicating a 1950s diner or take a more subtle approach by decorating the walls with posters of the top films from that era. Enjoy the fun colors of the 1980s or the flower power of the 1960s. You could design the room like a hidden speakeasy from the 1920s, complete with a wet bar to supply your guests with classic cocktails while you watch a movie.
Favorite Movie/TV Show
What’s your favorite movie? Imagine walking into the room and finding yourself transported onto the Millennium Falcon or standing in the library from Gone with the Wind. With this theme, you have the perfect opportunity to immersive yourself in the movie or show you love most. Often, these theater themes include fantasy or sci-fi elements, like one modeled after Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, or Harry Potter, but don’t let that stop you from choosing a home theater design for a more niche TV show.
