Perhaps you've always loved old movies. If that's the case, then a classic home theater might just be your style. Keep decor simple with stadium-style seating accented by posters of your favorite Hollywood stars. Add fun touches, like a popcorn machine or selection of popular movie candy, to make it feel like a night out at the theater.

If your tastes run to the more simple media room, consider adding leather sectional sofa, using part of the space as an area for watching television, and the remainder of the space as a bar, recreational room or office space.
