Building with pallets provides a lot of flexibility, so you can build your theater as large or small as you like, and in almost any shape. Imagine transforming a small spare room or a large garage or great room into luxurious home theater space, with no more fighting for the best spot on the couch or arguing about who gets the floor!

This designer created a similar look in an office warehouse. The pallets were painted white and are also used to store books and magazines. A television monitor hangs from another white pallet on the opposite wall, creating a lounge that's truly an employee perk!

If you have a room with nonexistent or oddly placed electrical outlets, simply install a ceiling-mounted projector where an overhead light would go. Paint one wall white and the other walls dark, build your theater seating, and you have an amazing private screening room!
