The full wall of painted bricks in this Cherry Knolls family room did not bring a very warm and welcoming feeling to a room designed (in theory) to bring a family together. This family of four came to us in need of a place that they could watch movies and sports, play games, and mostly gather in enjoyment of the space as it was intended… A Family Room.
In a room that already suffers from little natural light due to an outdoor covered porch right off the window, we brightened the room by painting the built-in entertainment center and shelving white. The storage provided by the new built-ins is perfect for displaying family photos and hiding all the unsightly audio/video equipment and wires. We also built-in the surround-sound speakers in the upper cabinets then covered them with white acoustical fabric to maintain the lightened mood on the TV wall as well as the audio fidelity.
The new fireplace with surrounding stone and chiseled granite hearth adds character and color to the wall. Finally the alder mantle with a custom stain creates a natural separation of the fireplace from the TV.
Now the room is bright, warm and inviting.
