So many things that would bug me about this room. Where do I start...
1) no screen just projecting on a white wall with no boarder.
2) Ceiling/walls are too white and all the light reflecting off of it.
3) If you like sitting on/in pillows I guess its ok but I like a real seat.
4) Where are the speakers? those little round vent like openings in the upper corners had better not be them "as I shake my head"
5) A fireplace directly under the screen and the opening to the Left just allow to much distraction because of the light.

just to name the most obvious things I dont like.

Looks like someone brought over there projector to someone else's home to have a movie night. Maybe I would have more friends in High school if I did this more often???

I don't know...what's happening on the pillows during the movie might be the better show!

#14...I've gotta say, I don't HATE it.

Yes, I'd add a screen border. Yes, I'd do something to tame the light reflections, but honestly, if I had the space, my dream seating layout would be:

Back row bar
Second row traditional theater seats
Front row super cozy U-shaped sectional
In front of that, pillows on the floor like shown here

I like the vaulted ceiling but that's about it
Might as well not bother on the audio front as you can see everyone lying down so their ears are vertical not horizontal.
The sound of people snoring would be a distraction along with the light reflecting off the walls ,that door front left, and window at the right side which is also reflecting the screen image.
A pretty poor attempt on all fronts

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I echo what everybody else says.. Lots of negatives in that post number 14. I also must add that the fireplace light as well as the hallway light will be distracting.

I suspect it must be for a quick movie night at someone's house and someone brought the portable projector.

On the plus side, I am sure those pillows are comfy.. lol.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

#14 definitely has SERIOUS issues!

Concern #1: Not enough pillows!

Nice and modern lounge set up
Yeah maybe drop the centre speaker down and I could live with that.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Light paint, bright surfaces that are reflective, a center that shoots about 3 feet above your ears and (potentially) no subwoofer. What's not to like?

Did anyone notice the speakers aren't connected? Was this strictly for a photo shoot, or is it actually someone's setup?

-Jim

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite
