With winter upon us soon, I start to think about spending time in a cozy, basement media room. Sure, you could put up a tv mounted to a wall and set up a sofa in front of it—but why stop there? Since I was a child, I’ve been dreaming of having a media room. I used to have fun drawing floor plans of exactly how I wanted my media room to be laid out.
All the extras
On my old floor plans, I remember putting in vintage jukeboxes, popcorn machines, and other movie theatre necessities. As winter approaches, and I feel more like staying in and relaxing, I find myself thinking back to my dream of having a nice media room.
I like the ‘ticket booth’ behind glass, the bar, popcorn machine and the cinema sign. It’s cool, because the card table, jukebox and bar are like the ‘lobby’ and the archway leads in to the actual media room.
If you build it, they will come?!
Right now, I don’t entertain guests, especially not for movie nights, but maybe if I build a really nice media room, guests will be more willing to hang out?
Who wouldn’t want to come over—check out these seats!
The one above is amazing—love the framed movie posters and the wood frame around the tv.
I like the starry ceiling—like you’re watching movies outside.
What would you like in a media room? Do you have a set-up that you like for watching movies/tv?
