Brick with wood. Exposed brick with surrounding millwork looks timeless and can be a great way to update an older brick fireplace. The untouched brick adds a more textural contrast to a freshly painted mantel and surround.

Choose 7.1 surround sound. The latest in surround-sound technology requires eight separate audio channels to truly immerse viewers in the film. But it can be difficult to decide whether you should try to disguise the speakers or make them a feature of the room. Plenty of speaker manufacturers make devices that both sound good and look beautiful. Wood paneling offers a great combination of acoustics and aesthetics. Remember to check the wiring options when looking to make a purchase — no matter how good the speakers look a tangle of cables is always a turn-off.

Sort your seating. What good is a home cinema without cinema-quality seating? With a home control system and D-Box technology you can have your seating rumble and vibrate in time with the action up on the big screen! Another option to consider especially if the room will be used by children is soundproofing. Not only does soundproofing mean you can turn up the volume; it also ensures that the little ones’ shouts of excitement won’t be heard by anyone next door.
