The guide to prestige media rooms

A media room – also known as a home theatre – is the perfect space to come together with friends and family to unwind. There’s nothing better than being able to view not only movies but new Netflix series’ or awards shows from the comfort of your very own cinema, so what kind of spaces are you likely to spot in the latest prestige homes? Read on to discover more.


Cosy comfort

A dedicated TV room with fireplace

 

A sunken-pit cinema space (which allows for even more of an ‘at the movies’ feel with a slight upward angle), is the perfect place to snuggle up and tune in. Setting your guests up with plush theatre-style chairs, personalised blankets, cushions and space for drinks and snacks makes it the ultimate escape from reality.

Dimmed, soft lighting and carpeted floor add another element of comfort and make this design a favourite for celebrities and other prestige homeowners alike.

Movies by moonlight from home

Especially in the perfect climate of the Northern Gold Coast, there’s no better way to enjoy a movie than with an outdoor screen setup. Comfortable lounge chairs can overlook your firepit and movie screen, finished with fairy lights and the ease of having your evening meal set up for you to the sides of your viewing area (or, if you like, a snack bar with lollies for kids and those young at heart).

 

Opulent viewing

For some homeowners, going to the cinema still means dressing up and making a statement, and their media room is no different. Look to art-deco style home theatre renovations, bringing opulence first with a touch of additional comfort – high-backed chairs, marble pillars and a lit walkway to guide you to your personal seat.

The perfect kind of home cinema for those that want their viewings to be something special, and less tracksuit, more suit and tie.

 

Top-Floor television

For prestige apartment owners, you might find some more creative ways to get together for their favourite movies and episodes. For those penthouse owners, consider a rooftop home theatre, with the city skyline setting the mood before you press play – of course, you’ll need to wait until it’s dark enough out for this one.

Rooftop home theatres are best built with warmth in mind, so consider heated lounge chairs, external heating bars and even a fireplace below your screen to ensure everyone feels comfortable for those long-haul movies (The Irishman, anyone?).


Go big

Sometimes you just want your home theatre to have that little extra edge over all the rest, and we think we’ve got you covered.

In 2021, LG released its biggest screen yet aimed at luxury home theatres, and it sits at – get ready for it – 325 inches (or about 26 feet high). With this screen size, created in a modular design, you can even watch different tv channels at once. Pricing is customised depending on what the client wants and install costs, but you’re looking at around 100k plus to get this mammoth screen into your home theatre, so get measuring!
