From Garage to Home Theater Glory: Kellen's Transformation Story

by Dreamedia AV 07 Apr 2024

Hey, Dreamedia family! We're bringing you something that dives deep into a project that's close to our hearts. We're at Kellen's place—yep, our national sales director.

What makes Kellen's home theater unique? It's crafted from a two-car garage transformation, showcasing that with vision and determination, any space can turn into an entertainment paradise.

The Journey Begins

Kellen's journey wasn't just about building a home theater; it was about creating a space where family and friends could gather and make lasting memories. With a bit of help from Dreamedia, Kellen leveraged our partnerships with top manufacturers to bring this vision to life.

The goal? To craft a high-end home theater that feels luxurious yet achievable.

Building from the Ground Up

Imagine this: a standard two-car garage transformed into a cinematic haven.

Kellen and his family took the challenge head-on, converting the 36x38 space into a cozy, 30-foot deep and 18-foot wide theater, maintaining a 12-foot ceiling height for that spacious feel. It was a family affair, with memories made at every step of the build.

Thoughtful Design Choices

Kellen's approach to the theater's design focused on drawing everyone's attention to the screen while future-proofing the space. Despite the "hate comments" on not opting for an acoustically transparent screen, Kellen's vision was clear.

He aimed for a setup that accommodated future tech advancements, like LED walls, which don't allow for speakers behind them.

Aesthetic and Acoustic Harmony

The theater's design blends modern farmhouse aesthetics with top-notch acoustic treatments. From the black painted shiplap and grey walls to the meticulously stained wooden slats by Kellen's wife, every detail contributes to the theater's ambiance and sound quality.

The ceiling, a blend of absorption and diffusion panels, and the custom trim work add layers of style and function, making the theater not just a place to watch movies, but a work of art.

Equipment That Elevates

Kellen's choice of gear is a testament to Dreamedia's commitment to quality. From the Trinnov Altitude 16 processor and JVC's flagship projector to Focal's 1000 series speakers and RTJ subwoofer, the theater is equipped with the best of the best.

The result? An immersive audio and visual experience that rivals any commercial cinema.

Comfort Meets Technology

No detail was too small in Kellen's theater build, from climate control with an LG mini-split to the whisper-quiet Hush Box for the projector. Comfort is key, with seating that invites you to sink in and lose yourself in the movie magic.

The inclusion of D-BOX loungers adds a dynamic layer to the cinematic experience, making every action scene more thrilling.
