Will my room size even work for a ht?

    Well im a noob here and I looked the best i could to find a satisfactory answer and did not find one. Here is my delema.
    I have a finished basement and im looking to redo it. I have a space that i could wall off and convert into a ht. This space is only 7ft wide and 21 ft long. Is this doable to make into a ht? Im thinking about a simple 2 row seating set up with whatever size screen thats best for the space. My only other option would be a temp set up in a room that is 10x14 with doors on three walls and tv would be on short end of room. Any input would be appreciated. Im a teacher and i have all summer to do this project but first want to know if its even worth it. Thank you!

    The 7' width is way too narrow. That leaves the 10' X 14" room. Are you looking to use a TV or projector?

    I figured someone would say that. Temporary man cave it is. My first thought is a tv. But if this is temp i guess a projector u can change size of screen based on room size. When i say temp i mean in 10 years i may have kids and they may be old enough to move into the basement and kick me out of that bedroom in the basement and assuming we r in the same house. So how far do i go? Change drop down ceiling to acoustic tiles? Just don't have money to waist but want a place to escape from wife and heat on those crazy summer days. Again doors on three walls really limits places to put a screen and couches :( Thanks for ur input!

    I wanted to put a TV in our 3x5 toilet room off the master bath. I had it all planned out down to a 10" sub on top of the medicine cabinet. I don't think any room is too small for a home theater.
    My wife vetoed the idea.

    It all depends on your budget. A TV is probably the cheaper way to go, but that's not going to be a "home theater". I assume you're aware that with a projector you need to hook up a receiver and speakers for sound? And possibly a ceiling mount? Unless you mount it on a rear shelf. Let us know your budget for projector and screen, and we can recommend some projectors for you.

    Since there's no smiley face, I don't know if you're kidding or not. But if you want a TV in the bathroom, you need to eat more fiber. :)
