Carter Oosterhouse transforms a messy basement into a combination home theater and game room.
More in Decorating
A six-inch platform is built to create dual-level theater seating. The platform and floor are completely covered in eco-friendly carpet tiles. Both levels are lined with lightweight chairs that are comfy and can easily be rearranged in any configuration. Carter and his crew paint the walls then add fabric-covered panels for better acoustics. Columns sit between the panels to hold new wall sconces. Plywood is used to build a two-channel soffit on the ceiling. One channel will hold the home theater wires while the other will house rope lighting. Finally, the latest in high-tech media equipment is installed to give the homeowners a true home theater experience.
Check out how the fabric panels are constructed.
