At one time entertainment units were relegated to the basement or den. Today, they are a grander part of the great room that constitutes the adjoining space to the kitchen. Casual, yet upscale, these units are the control centers for media, as well as, a platform to show off art, books and collections.
The shift from narrow, modular and inferiorly constructed units, to solid examples of quality craftsmanship and style, has been on a slow to moderate conveyor, slightly speeding up these past 15 years. They are now shining examples of case-good creative design.
Modern Times and the Living is Easy
The scope of what these units provide is vast, beyond what the original intent was. Initially they housed television, perhaps a stereo system and some knick-knacks.
Today, they are beautifully designed pieces of furniture that tie in with the style and tempo of the room. Entertainment centers now dip and curve to accommodate flat screen TVs, surround sound systems, video game equipment – and that’s just the electronics side of it.
Aquariums are built in, objets d’art are highlighted with ambient lighting and humidors, while many other customized components dwell in this evolved piece of furniture as well.
Transitional in the Great Room
Entertainment centers can be attached to the wall, or not. Regardless, their design is such that they can fit in anywhere. Transitional is the new contemporary, and whether in the kitchen, bathroom or living room, the cabinetry is all about fitting in and adapting to change.
Schrapper’s Fine Cabinetry and Design is all about change, while adhering to the time honored tradition of high quality primary and secondary woods and meticulously crafted hardware.
The truly wonderful thing about these customized entertainment centers is that you get to have a say in the design. Your vision becomes a reality when you sit down with skilled designers who render your ideas and produce blueprints for a one-of-a-kind unit, specifically designed for you.
