Media room setup help.

Alright... nothing fancy up in here

. 3 seat media chairs
. LCD flat screen of unknown brand or size yet
. entertainment center
. then little things to fancy it up

Anyhow... it seems it's going to be a tight fit. The chairs extended out are 67", I need 3" between chair and wall, and the length of the room is 104", leaving me only 34".

The chairs not extended are 37 3/4" wide. leaving me 63 1/4" of room between the wall and end of chair.

I think it would be best to mount the TV on the wall? From there I can probably location some type of furniture to hold the basic electronics. That would give me optimal space. The only thing with this is there is a damn power switch pretty smack in the middle of the wall.

Is this doable? What size TV would be optimal for this room size?

1" = 1/8"

Can you turn the chairs where you have more distance between you and the TV?

Also, how about a 78-80" sofa instead of the bulky chairs? It will still seat three, but take up less space, and save you some money for equipment.

From eye to TV there would be roughly 7 ft, no matter if it's reclined or not.

I'm kinda biased to these as if I upgrade to a different home in the future, i'd probably have a lot more room.

The way I have it laid out is about the only way I could set it up. Behind where I showed the couch, there is a wall of mirrors and walking into the room is a large window.

Thanks bro... the only thing that sucks is this stuff can only go a certain way due to mirrors and a big ol' window.

Haha.. I forgot about that. I actually don't hae Visio anymore so I couldn't do any better than he did. I just changed up our living room recently and had to resort to graph paper. Just measured off the room and laid it out on the paper. Then cut out the "furniture" seperately so I could move it around easily.

That said, there are plenty of resources for what you need Brien. The room is going to seem tight but it will also require a smaller TV, which is a bonus. Do some googling and you will find recommendations on TV size based on viewing distance.

As for the power switch, is it something you need to use? If not just take the switch off and put a blank cover over it. Or hell, you can even just remove the switch and not cover it if it's going to be behind the TV. Just cap the wires. It is fully reversible.
