When we purchased our new home there was 13' of blank wall space. After deciding that I didn't want a huge monstrosity piece of furniture, I went about to designing a wall space. After I finished the design I hired framer, electrician, drywaller and carpenter. I made the mantel, did the tiling and painting myself and this is what I have. A traditional style complete with faux fireplace and bookcases with arches that match the rest of the arches in the house. Wiring is hid behind the walls and electronic equipment is inside the cabinets.
