Problem: you want a bigger television set but your custom media center is too small. Solution: get it widened by a professional - and improve its looks at the same time.
Built-in media centers are a great focal point for a polished centerpiece for your family room but if technology changes and you’ve got your eye on a bigger television then you’re stuck – or are you? You can get a woodworker to make a few adjustments and it will be even better than before.
Here’s what had to be changed:
Center box that holds the tv and upper speaker
Moulding along top had to be redone.
Fix the split in the middle from widening it
Add interest around the fireplace as there was new unfinished space to the left and right
Here’s what was done:
New box was made for tv as large as space would allow between two doorways to rooms left and right, new plugs and plates installed behind tv.
Left and right electronic units were moved as far as possible.
New moulding was added along the top and an architectural accent key was added to the top moulding to cover the split.
Granite was considered for the fireplace surround but instead burl from old matching doors was reworked to bring the whole look together.
Hooked electronics back up, put on 3D glasses, flipped on the gas fireplace and – media center makeover – better than new!
