CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Designers’ Choice 2005 Award Winner
Home Theater Level I: Less Than $60,000

This theater room was created out of a second-floor storage area of the home. It comfortably fits the family of four and has become one of the favorite rooms in the home. The client was concerned with the aesthetics of the room, not wanting it to be dark and feel closed in, so light colors were chosen for the decor. Decorative columns give the room style and hide the speakers. A 110in. screen and 7.1 surround sound deliver a great movie experience, all controlled by a single remote.
