5. A New Frontier 

This space-age-style home theater truly is the “next generation” of home movie theaters.

This makes for a very serene and perfectly isolated environment to enjoy your favorite movies (perhaps, Interstellar?).

This home theater is nothing if not a beautiful example of a balanced design. It not only features a striking design, but it’s also very luxurious with plush seating and a huge screen for films to be projected onto.

6. Multi-Purpose Home Theater

While it may not be quite as impressive as the one above, this versatile home theater is just as amazing. What sticks out most about this theater is not just its unique design, beautiful accent lighting, or natural stone floor, but how many different functions this space can fulfill. If you want a full theater experience, just drop the curtains and dim the lights. However, this living room theater can also just function as a beautiful living room for those times when you just need a spot to unwind. 

No space? No problem! This basement home theater proves that you can have comfort and luxury even if you don’t have a lot of room to spare.

7. Cozy Configuration

You don’t have to worry about being stuck with something that’s far too big for you to use. This living room theater setup oozes luxury but it’s also restrained both in size and in style, allowing for a warm cozy atmosphere. This vibe is accentuated with the use of relaxing neutral colors and a few select pieces of tasteful decor. This is exactly the type of uncommon room addition some people can really appreciate. 

What could be more luxuriant than high-grade wood paneling, leather seating, cupholders, and a golden age-style projector screen?

8. The Deluxe Option

For those that have the cash, a classic-style home theater is a thing to have. This more expensive home theater room is a parade of high-grade leather, stylish accent work, and beautiful wooden paneling. A 10-foot screen and a powerful projector make watching movies here a golden age experience like no other. Of course, an adjoining refreshments area separated by a distinctive door is the icing on the cake of this design.

9. Gameday Theater Room

Why settle for just a regular home theater when you can have one with games in it too? Any avid sports fan who loves to watch their favorite teams duking it out on the big screen with a couple of buddies is going to love this setup. There’s not only a comfy place to catch all your favorite games, but also a fun addition in the form of a neat game room to keep you entertained during ad breaks. 

A simple design is far less distracting, but your home theater can still have an untraditional, personal touch as well.

10. Simple Yet Quirky

Not everyone wants a home theater that shouts, “Look at me!” - some people prefer something a little more subtle and less distracting. The outdoor theater room in the photo above is the perfect example of a simple home theater with a few quirky dashes of color to make it your own. Functional, yet personal.

VR is a new frontier in entertainment technology that can completely change your video gaming experience.

11. VR Room

Although most of us might not have a spare media room to set aside just for virtual reality gaming, that takes nothing away from how cool of a concept it is. A VR room is still an uncommon room in most homes since VR is a nascent technology. Nevertheless, it is an entertainment medium with lots of promise. Instead of focusing on a gigantic screen, this theater room immerses you into new worlds, filled with new characters and stories to explore.
