Hi all, We're converting the garage in to a multi purpose room which will basically be a TV room and space to relax away from the main house. I'm not sure if this is the correct subforum but the idea of using the space as a cinema room is quite appealing. However, as you will see from the drawings, the room's proportions do not lend themselves exactly ideal for this (as far as I'm aware). I've attached the architects sketch along with a rough interpretation without measurements of what we were thinking of doing. See below: View attachment 1019120 With ideas: View attachment 1019121 As you are going to be able to tell from the rest of this post, I'm not the most literate with AV but I'm keen to learn about it. I'm coming to this forum because I have been looking through completed member builds in the last couple of weeks and it has opened my eyes up to loads of things that I had not even thought about doing before, for example - - In wall speakers - RGB lighting - Being able to control all devices from lights to TV through 1 app/remote - Using a projector instead of a TV As you will see from the drawings, the space is quite large and we'd also like to use it for a bar and 'study' if possible, whilst keeping it open plan. I did consider partitioning off a specific section for a home cinema room that would be the ideal proportions however I fear this would get in the way of the bifold doors, and the room would be much more versatile being open plan. My specific questions would be: 1. Am I missing any tech? 2. Could in wall speakers work? The discreet look is very appealing - I saw a user built with Kef in wall speakers and it looked the nuts but the set up with meticulous and the room was a completely different shape. 3. Any recommendations on equipment? This is what I am currently looking in to but the most important thing to me right now is figuring out a plan of where to place things and the associated cabling in order to make it clean. Points to note: 1. The ceiling is flat, 2300mm from the floor. 2. The partition walling show is unlikely to change position due to SWMBO requirements... 3. Toilet is already in position. I suppose this could change but the costs involved would make it very unfavourable. 4. There is Cat6 already provided to the garage which can be routed round to wherever the receiver/projector/anything else is. 5. The budget could vary but I have a feeling it will need to be extended to get what I'm hoping for. Maybe £5-10k to put an actual tangible number to it. I welcome any and all thoughts as to whether there is any other things we could do to the room/placement of items. I realise the question is quite broad at the moment but I'm interested to know what the internet would do if it were their project. Thank you to any replies in advance, any questions please ask.
