I’m sharing a before and after of a cabinet niche that was updated to accommodate a big flat screen tv.
These pics were sent in from a reader, who learned about how I designed one of these for a client on this post, during the remodel of one of my projects.
I am so happy to see the results, and asked if I could share her pics with you today.
Here was the “before” pic of her tv wall with some cabinetry existing.
Remember these big box-like picture tube tvs? It wasn’t that long ago, was it?
That’s what the cabinetry above was built for.
It was the same with the cabinetry built-in (pictured below) in another one of my remodeling design jobs that I wrote about here.
We built a new base cabinet in the cavity for the big box-like tv and then built the false panel forward in the built-in, so the cabinet didn’t appear so deep.
In this remodel project, we kept the lower cabinetry and just added framing and a back panel on top, with grommets in the countertop for wires to drop down through.
Looks much more complete and up to date, doesn’t it?
My reader saw that post and then attacked her project. This image, below, was the mid-way point of her project.
They did new cabinetry below, but with a bigger flat screen tv, this was the way to go. It filled up her niche nicely.
And here’s her final result! Looks awesome, doesn’t it?
