Auburn Spare Bedroom Home Theater

Do you believe home theater is only for those with big rooms and even bigger budgets? Think again. The right designer can minimize the limitations of a space to bring you an entertainment experience beyond your expectations. And while it is true that you get what you pay for, the budget does not need to be unreasonably high to have us create for you.

This theater started as small 11′ X 12 1/2′ spare bedroom that had a 55″Samsung HDTV ran through their stereo with giant tower speakers. When the final phase is done this Fall, it will have a 3D projector, 92″ screen and excellent 5.1 surround sound. The client had first considered adding a theater in a box surround system, but at the same time wondered about doing something great. A cool room. Done by a pro. With better sound + video. Could it fit the budget?

He decided to give Theater Design a call and we are glad he did. Working together, our design team helped to sort through and create the clients idea of a great room for their family.
