I've currently got a Panasonic AE200 and 106" screen in my lounge which the whole family thinks is fantastic. We've got planning permission to build a big extension on the side of our house which will give us a lounge 33' x 16' plus the existing lounge of 20' x13' that will open into it. The whole room will be painted in light colours and whilt my AV stuff will be tolerated it doesn't look very pretty (amps, 7 speakers, 2 servo 15s etc). Given the choice would it be preferable to section off a room at the dark end of the lounge about 16' x 9' in size. I'd then have total control so carpet on the walls and dark matt colours would all be ok. Looking at the various 'my cinema' threads I've sort of decided on the dedicated cinema room. I'm just wondering if anyone has gone against this sort of set up in favour of being able to show movies in much larger albeit compromised space.
