A media room is a must for any luxury home in south Florida. A home theater completely changes the dynamics of viewing movies, important news, sports events and more! Here are our top tips for creating your own special media room and a few of our favorite homes for sale in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Vero Beach, and Fort Lauderdale that have some of the most fabulous home theaters we’ve ever seen.Add Drama!
Create authentic theater ambiance with thick velvety curtains in a rich, deep color like violet, scarlet or gold. Hang them in the entrance or on either side of the screen for the full effect! Curtains are also essential if outside light is a factor in the room. You definitely don’t want that Florida sunlight shining during your movie screening.Darker is Better
Once you’ve chosen your luxe, light-blocking curtains, take your theater a step further by using dark, matte colors on the walls and for the furniture. Rich black leather seating adds a dark dimension that will enhance your viewing experience. To ensure that your space doesn’t seem too sinister, use brightly colored accent pillows or carpet for contrast.Comfort is Key
Individual recliners make for the most luxurious viewing possible. Opt for seats that offer maximum support as well as comfort. A mix of single seats and love seats are perfect for viewing parties where couples want to snuggle or kids might want to sit together to share snacks.Don’t Forget Refreshments
Speaking of snacks, easy access to beverages and movie eats is key. Many seating styles have built in cupholders or even coolers integrated, but if you really want to wow your guests, choose to build a “snackbar” right in the media room. Keep it stocked with soda, beer, popcorn, pretzels and other fun treats that you’d find at the movies.
