Back in the days of thick, heavy TVs, installing a built-in entertainment center might have sounded like a perfect solution to hiding all of that bulk.
Unfortunately, they created a big problem when it comes to installing the slimmer, wide screen TVs we have today: what happens when you want to upgrade your TV, but your built-in doesn’t have the space to accommodate the larger screen?
Let JR Carpentry & Tile install an entertainment center that will accommodate any TV as technology evolves for years to come!
A homeowner in Lafayette Hill had purchased a brand new wide screen TV. When they brought it home and tried to set it up in their built-in entertainment center, they discovered that the TV was too wide to fit in the space.
We were able to close up the wall, installing solid blocks where the mount was going so that we would not have to search for studs. Solid blocks also stiffen the wall’s lateral movement by joining the studs together.
The outlet was recessed into the wall to prevent the plug from poking out and getting in the way of the mounted TV. Wires were run behind the wall to make the finished product look clean, simple, and organized.
The new entertainment center has a timeless look, and the open wall space will accommodate TVs of all shapes and sizes. We think it looks great, and the homeowner couldn’t have been more pleased with the results!
