HT Room Layout advice


Hi guys, needing some advice:

I have this studio apartment (which was previously a double garage) which I want to convert to my ht room and man cave.

I am not sure how to best utilise the space.

I've attached a pic of the layout with measurements as best I could.

Ideally I'm going to move the cupboard and have a new cupboard incorporating the entrance to the bathroom. (the bathroom is open with no door / just a screen)

I would also like to keep the bed set in there, if i can (in case the wife kicks me out).

I have an L shaped recliner lounge set for this room, but placement will depend on where the TV is mounted.

System is a Marantz 7015 running 5.2.4 (that's the plan) as this is the equipment on hand.

The TV is to be bought, but is going to be either 65"/75".

May also keep my stereo set here too, Marantz pm7000 and MA floorstanders

Thank a million for looking and the invaluable advice

So I'm about to hopefully pull the trigger on a tv... Choices are a slightly better specced 65" maybe hisense 65U8G or Samsung Q60A, otherwise a 75" LG nano 75 or Samsung AU8000.

This what I'm thinking of doing in the room... Furthest distance I could ever sit away from the TV would be 4.6m or closest 3.6m.

I'm currently using a 50" TV and sit about 3 - 3.7 meters away. It's comfortable viewing.

Still planning to do 5.2.4 set up

The smaller rectangle would be the 65" and the 75" is the larger

Cool project going on there Kshah. Are you mounting your TV on short wall or long wall of the room? Couldn't tell from the pics. Being a HT room, any thoughts on using a projector

@Audioholic, As it stands the TV most likely will be wall mounted probably where masking tape markup is - in the pics on my second post (The longer wall being on the right hand side of the pics).

That means that I would have my HT occupying 3.0m x 5m of the room - hopefully can accommodate a 5.2.4 setup which I have just waiting to be installed.

A projector is still maybe part of the plan,  but TV only for now - will revisit this in the future.

I considered the long wall - i.e. the 5 meter wall, and possibly locating the  electronics on the side where I have done the markup, but this would need new and longer cabling than I have. But even if I move everything to the longer wall, which can easily work, I would possibly waste a lot of space in the room, and presently I am considering putting in my pool table in this room as well an office desk for when I have to work at home.   

What I am debating at the moment is whether to buy a 75" that is not HDMI 2.1 or buy a 65" that has that feature - both may cost the same.
