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.

An attic is an obvious place for any ambitious cinema fan to install a dedicated system. Firstly, it's probably not being used for much beyond storing boxes of junk. Secondly, it's not likely to get much (if any) walkthrough traffic – you can retire to the loft and relax with a movie in peace. The setup featured here has been achieved by custom install professionals, and the price tag, we're told, is commensurate with the level of hardware, control and acoustic treatments employed. But even for those with limited budgets it's certainly an inspirational makeover that could give you some ideas for your own project.

In this eye-catching multipurpose room delivered by CEDIA-award-winning installer Cyberhomes, the emphasis is on discreet multichannel audio, simplistic control and everyday use. It's a good example of how to combine a regular living area with bigscreen entertainment.

Designing a home cinema installation can be challenging enough, but having to do the work in a short time really sorts the men from the boys. St Albans-based installer FAB Audio Visual won a CEDIA Award for Best Home Cinema under £40,000 for this stunning system, designed for a client who was big on expectation, but short on time.

This luxurious cinema room is the end result of a full makeover by North Yorkshire's Harrogate Home Cinema, and is affectionately known as The Modeon by its happy owner. An existing customer of the professional install firm, the project arose when he decided to fulfil a long-term dream and convert the old playroom in his house into a dedicated movie den.  The initial stage of the build involved the creation of 3D visuals to ensure the owner was getting exactly what he wanted. Then, once a layout design was approved, Harrogate Home Cinema began creating the technical specification, working, we're told, to a 'strict budget'. We haven't been given the exact cost of the whole setup, but we imagine the said budget wasn't exactly miserly...

The proud owner of this stunning cinema room in South Africa – complete with unique 5000-element fibre-optic star ceiling – is a true movie-holic, to the point where the cinema was the first room to be completed during a comprehensive home-renovation project. In fact, the property already featured a home cinema, but during initial discussions with installer Sphere Custom it became clear that the existing room would not accommodate what the film-mad owner had in mind. It was decided instead to start from a ‘clean slate’, and a dedicated extension for the proposed 12m x 7m room was constructed.

There are many things you could do with a 'disused' room in your house. Install a gym, house a collection of rare snakes, set up a tiny restaurant... Or you could opt for your very own high-end cinema room. To us, and the owner of this four-seat movie den, that's the obvious option.
