    Hello All,

    I am new to the forum. It's great information so far. I am in the process of chosing my colors for the HT room. Any suggestions? what colors etc?

    It's being served as a HT and Rec room with a bar type area.

    Please help.

    thank you,

    A lot of people do Grays, Dark Reds. Depends on how dark/light you want the room.

    What kind of display will you be using? This is critical to determining what colors are appropriate and where. You may get some background and guidance from the info on my site.

    One thing that a lot of people forget (or aren't allowed to change due to WAF) is the ceiling colour. With a light coloured or shiny ceiling, way too much light can get reflected, especially with a front projection system, and you get a big distracting rectangle above you. Overall, the darker you can paint the room, the easier it is to get engrossed in your movie experience when the lights go down and the screen goes on.
