We all have those Friday nights after a long week when nothing sounds better than a cozy movie night with friends or family. We love setting the mood with a bottle of wine, a little candlelight, and some popcorn. However, we must admit sometimes we wish our screen was huge and our sound system unbelievable.
Some people get to experience movie theater-quality spaces (with super cool designs) from the comfort of their own homes. These seven amazing in-home theaters are giving us some major design and film-viewing envy!
1. Rustic Luxury Theater
We imagine this space feels as warm and snug as a sauna after being out in the cold. Beautiful chandeliers, candles, and a modest pool to view a French film sound like a pretty spectacular arrangement to us.
2. Beautiful Basement Movie Theater
This may not be the most innovative or high-tech of all in-home theaters, but it looks unbeatably comfortable. We’re in love with the smooth vaulted ceiling and that amazing fireplace right beneath the screen! Plus a giant pillow pile? It doesn’t get much better than that.
3. A Pool with a View Theater
This theater/swimming pool may look a little more Vegas than a relaxed night in, but the glass rooftop and opulent pool make it worth watching one movie in. We’ll happily enjoy the Wizard of Oz from the jacuzzi.
4. A Cozy Cabin Theater
This theater is the “Little House on the Prairie” we’ve always dreamed of. Wooden walls with stone details, lanterns lighting the theater, and an insanely comfy-looking couch give the space a cozy log cabin look.
5. The Classic Movie Theater
This theater proves that sometimes classic is best. From the red velvet upholstery to the film playing on the screen, this at-home cinema is recalling an age when going to the movies was a lavish and grandiose experience.
6. Man Cave Meets Movie Theater
When the movie starts, you want all the lights as low as possible and this all-black design is a recipe for a flawlessly dark movie theater. Not only do the bright red chairs give the space just the pop of color it needs, but they are legit movie theater chairs complete with cup holders and trays! Now that’s one way to enjoy a film.
7. Modern & Luxurious Home Theater
Judging by its modern decor and excellent lighting situation, this sleek in-home theater probably has a pretty killer sound system, too. We’re not huge fans of the straight leather couches (we would opt for something a little more cushioned), but the screen is large and every seat in the house has a great view, so we’ll take it.
