Media walls generally look best if they echo the architecture of the home. Cabinetmaker True studies the trim throughout the house and runs matching base and crown molding across the front of the built-in. He’s also fond of incorporating fluted pilasters and arches when appropriate to break up the unit’s rectilinear lines.

Of all the built-ins you can add a media wall is one of the most useful. It helps to tame the clutter that springs up around a TV and when paired with bookshelves provides ample opportunity to display mementos and books (reinforcing the notion that you do more than sit in front of the TV all day).While there are an infinite number of ways to arrange a media wall experts recommend dividing the unit into a base and an upper cabinet to help break up the unit’s mass and to accommodate varying depths of storage. The base can be fitted with drawers or doors to conceal electronics and accessories.

Hide your projector. Another way to have the technology of our dreams without compromising on style is by using a motorized projector lift. It’s even possible to activate the lift from an app on your smartphone. A projector can be concealed in the ceiling or in a tabletop. Then whenever you want to watch a film your living room or kitchen can be transformed into your own private cinema.

Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!

Art form. This living room artistically combines the television and fireplace on one wall. The television is offset by the hearth for balance while the streamlined fireplace almost disappears under the recessed cavity when it's not on. A surround like this can easily be customized into full-overlay doors for extra living room storage.

Put speakers in the ceiling. You can have an entire sound system completely hidden from view with ceiling-integrated speakers. This is an excellent way to have high-fidelity audio and free up space in your home to get creative with your design. When it’s time to watch a film speakers integrated into the ceiling make viewers feel as though they are right in the middle of the action — perfect for a nail-biting thriller or spellbinding fantasy flick.
