    Hi, we are looking at building a 2 storey extension. Upstairs will be ensuite and dressing room to master bedroom which gives me a 10 x 10 foot room downstairs to make a dedicated cinema/games.
    My worries are will 10 x 10 feel too small. All I need in there is biggest sofa I can get plus screen etc.
    Other worry is I know a square room is not an ideal shape for sound.
    Any thoughts advice on the above appreciated.

    3m*3m is small but doable.

    You'll need to give more info before you'll get any real help though.

    Sketch of room maybe
    Throw up ideas of equipment you want to use etc
    Atmos maybe? 5.1.2 would probably be best
    Get your cable runs sorted while the building happens for a cable free look

    Room is going to be square with door to one corner. Tv could go on any wall. Not decided yet on if room will be windowless. More on what wife agrees!
    Still early days. Just worries 3 x 3 would be too small. Ideally would like atmos. Currently have set up in living room of denon amp with m and k k4 and k5 with a bk sub which I'm happy with so something similar sound wise with may be a 65inch screen. Possibly projector.
    Would sound proof and cable whilst built.

    Room - try and avoid it being perfectly square as that adds complexities when dealing with the reflected audio within the room, you could plan for a 'baffle' wall to house the Projection screen plus In-wall Front LCR loudspeakers.

    Too small - only if you are trying to cram in too many bodies/seats, otherwise you can usually deal with a compact room.

    Projection - remember to plan for keeping the room at a suitable temperature, projectors can kick out a lot of heat (as can some flat panel TV's).
