Sharing Our Recent Basement Theater Remodel.

Downstairs ideas 03.20.14
This room used to have floor to ceiling mirrors lining two walls, so instead of removing the mirrors (dangerous) my husband studded over them and sheetrock was added. The ceiling trim is my favorite- DH installed special lighting on a dimmer switch for ambient lighting on the ceiling during movie nights.
Basement room "before" pic with mirrors- these all got sheetrocked over instead of removing.
Surround sound and closer view of trim around the perimeter of the ceiling. This VERY cool feature was easy to create with a little trim and some paint and an unexpected lighting element you can buy for just a few dollars! Can you guess what we used to light up this room?

    It looks wonderful! Now you can use the room & not just look at yourself, alllll of yourself! What type of paint is that on the ceiling, or is it reflecting due to the lights?

    @SheilaG- too funny! Good to see you over here! :)

    @KMS- Yes, the original owners built it as a workout room. We are more couch potatoes so we turned it into a theater/ game
