Not all custom install projects are largescale and premium-priced, as this compact theatre designed by Yorkshire-based Bespoke Home Cinemas illustrates. Where many would settle for a flatscreen TV, the owner of this system wanted more...

This professional project by South East-based installer Cinema Rooms involved a big transformation as the space designated for cinematic conversion used to be a kitchen, the owner having recently had a new one built in an extension. So out went the fridge, oven and sink and in came an Atmos-compatible audio system and laser-powered projection.

This award-winning media room, built in a modern extension on a not-so-modern cottage, gives its owners somewhere to enjoy films, music, games and TV in comfort. The challenge for Bristol-based install outfit ConnectedWorks was to make the best use of the limited space available, and integrate AV hardware while retaining a neat aesthetic.

This well-dressed cinema room, converted from a basement space by UK installer The Pyramid Group, had to meet the demands of its film fanatic owners, husband and wife Bruce and Hilary. They wanted super-sized visuals and immersive audio, but had specific hardware requirements in mind.

Dug out of a basement in a London property, the first domestic IMAX cinema in Europe is certainly one of UK installer Cornflake's most prestigious projects. Built around the cinema company's Theatre Palais specification (there's an even more premium flavour for larger setups), it uses its custom projection and surround sound speaker/amp technologies to provide a state-of-the-art movie-watching experience.

The owner of this cinema room has an extra reason to love it – last year it was crowned Best Home Cinema in the £40,000-£100,000 category in the CEDIA Awards. Completed by London/south coast-based pro outfit Pyramid AV, it features native 4K projection and a state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos speaker configuration.

Not everyone has the space, or the desire, for a dedicated home cinema room where watching movies takes precedent over everything else. In this case a multi-purpose 'media room' is in order, where everyday living and high-performance AV entertainment live side by side.

While for some a living room can easily double up as a home cinema, others crave a private space where they can get away from it all and settle into the serious business of watching movies. And, in this case, blasting aliens, thrashing cars and pretending to be Lionel Messi.

Vrooom! This unusual home cinema setup is the result of a car-mad movie fan who wanted to split his double garage in half, thus creating space for a high-spec theatre and a slick residence for his motor. And he wanted to be able to see one side from the other...

A finalist in this year's CEDIA Awards in the home cinema £40,000-£100,000 category, this below-stairs theatre saw custom installer Finite Solutions given a somewhat unusual brief. The owners had recently moved into the house, and one reason for choosing it was that it came with its own cinema room. Yet, while happy with the performance, researching the world of personal AV playrooms led them to realise they could make it even better, and have it re-styled to their own tastes.

While it's not unusual to see loft spaces repurposed as dedicated home cinemas – why use your attic to store a legacy VHS collection when you can be watching Blu-rays in there instead? – this professional install is actually located in the roof space of a double garage. Designed by London's Automated Smart Homes, it finds space for six luxurious Fortress recliners and a discreet 7.2-channel speaker system.

While some crave a dedicated cinema room far removed from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house, others want to integrate largescreen AV thrills with their more regular living space. This professional install is a case of the latter, although it's true that 'regular living space' is stretching it a bit...

Here's a room that serves many functions. A converted loft space, it works as a home office, a TV/gaming den for the owner's children, and a slick, stylish home cinema. The cost? Less than £10,000 – and that includes all the hardware, plus design, installation and calibration. Handy.

While the premium picture palaces delivered by professional install outfits are guaranteed to get us salivating, a dedicated movie room doesn't have to be über-expensive. Proof, if you need it, comes in the shape of this basement theatre undertaken by FAB AV from St. Albans, with hardware and installation costs coming in at under £10,000.
