Custom Transformed Home Theatre Room, Installation & Programming

The new owners of this home wanted to convert the existing open plan formal lounge room into a dedicated home cinema. Life Style Store took care of all facets of this room including room aesthetics, acoustic treatments and of course the audio visual system. A custom bulkhead and false ceiling was added for the starlight ceiling, a raised floor was built for the rear row of cinema seating and one of the entry doors was closed in. The rear of the room had a custom full height acoustic wall panel system installed and the sides of the room had custom wall panels and lighting columns. The audio visual equipment for the room was housed under the staircase next to the room and the subwoofer was vented from this location into the theatre room. A custom bar was also built for the rear side section within the theatre room.

Now the best seat in the house for this Hills District family is in their converted home cinema

When they purchased their new Castle Hill home, these homeowners had a grand vision: to convert their existing open-plan formal lounge room into a dedicated home cinema for the ultimate in home entertainment. John and Debbie have two children, aged 21 and 13, and the family enjoys relaxing in the theatre room together, watching movies, TV shows and home videos — and now there’s no better place for it.

“Our home theatre was to look professional, suit the style of our home (built by local builders Gremmo Homes), and have the best-quality sound system,” explain John and Debbie. Their combined dining/formal lounge was to be converted into a modern high-tech theatre room with all modern features and styling. The room also had to be as dark as possible for viewing ambiance as it was previously very light with many west-facing windows. Life Style Store took care of all facets of this room including aesthetics, acoustic treatments and, of course, the audio-visual system. A custom bulkhead and false ceiling was added for the starlight ceiling, a raised floor was built for the rear row of cinema seating and one of the entry doors was closed in. The rear of the room had a custom full-height acoustic wall panel system installed and the sides of the room had custom wall panels and lighting columns.

The audio-visual equipment was housed under the staircase next to the room and the subwoofer was vented from this location into the theatre room. A custom bar was also built for the rear side section within the theatre room. The family was inspired by viewing different options at the Life Style Store showroom. They selected suitable features and styling, and also listened to the advice provided by the installation team. “Life Style Store more than met our expectations of what we had envisioned,” say Debbie and John. “We were very impressed with the professionalism of the installation team, including their knowledge and desire to build the best they could and their ability to accommodate our suggestions. At the same time they offered alternate options during the build, plus assisted us with technical installation and options for the smaller TV room. Thank you, Life Style Store. We still thoroughly enjoy our stunning theatre room. Our experience was exceptional in terms of the professionalism and our sheer delight in the result.

“The entire theatre room with its accompanying features is now our favourite part of our home. The sound system is state of the art. The systems that were installed have made life much easier, with connectivity to Apple TV, Netflix, Foxtel and for DVD viewing. The iPad-driven device is very convenient and easy to use.” According to Debbie and John, there’s now plenty of family fights over what to watch and when. “The kids still always win!” they laugh.
