Stage 3

We really got our hands dirty on this project, with a complete makeover of a basement – which we transformed from a shell into a very stylish and well-specced home theatre room.

We adjusted beams, finished off the concrete floor, sheeted the walls, installed cabling, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers – as well as star ceiling panels, carpeting, step profile lighting and custom cabinetry.

Highlights of this installation…

Custom Manhattan cinema-style seating

The client wanted a distinctive look for their seating, and went for a beautiful tan brown leather with diamond Bentley-style stitching and stainless steel cup holders. We love it, and so do they!

Manhattan noise solation vinyl

This product is a high-performance soundproofing material designed to enhance privacy by minimising sound transmission. It was installed under carpet in the bedrooms above the home cinema room to block and absorb sound penetration to these areas.

Origin Acoustics speakers

We installed a series of Origin Acoustics speakers – including in-wall fronts, in-wall rears and a pair of in-ceilings to add height for Atmos audio. The brand’s speakers are known for their wide soundstage and accurate imaging – which means they reproduce the audio of a source faithfully. That means you get crisp highs, warm mid tones, and powerful bass for a truly immersive audio experience.

Client testimonial

We had Andy and his team come in and install the most amazing space in our home.
We had a dirt floored room and Universal helped us turn it into our favourite room in the house.
Andy, Kyle, Jamie and Mick were amazing to deal with, super professional, exceptional workmanship and basically a company that cares about what they are doing. Thanks for giving us a space that we will enjoy as a family for many years to come!
