What is a media wall?

At its core, the idea behind a media wall is to create a bespoke centrepiece to capture the attention of people when they enter the room. It’s typically a full wall installation, using the full available width and height. By creating a bespoke stud wall framework on top of the existing wall, you can wall mount a television, build in integrated storage space like shelves and drawers, and most importantly leave space for a built-in electric fire for that hole-in-the-wall look which many strive for.

What else do you need to consider before undertaking a media wall project?

Television Size

Many of the best media walls incorporate a television, but what you might not realise is size matters! After all, if you’re integrating storage into your media wall framework, it’s likely you’ll want your TV centred, with shelves, cupboards and drawers either side, or perhaps above and below. If so, depending on the size of your wall and width available, you’re only going to have a certain space to allow for your TV in the centre.

Therefore, if you think you might like to upgrade to a larger TV in the future, this is something you may want to think about doing before you start planning the dimensions of your media wall. Alternatively as long as you know the dimensions of the TV, you can factor this into your design plan.

Peripheral Devices

For the ultimate media wall, you may want to allow room for extra peripherals such as speaker systems, set top boxes, games consoles and more. Don’t forget to account for these in your plan and provide space to accommodate these. For example, you may choose to place games consoles on a shelf to the side of your TV or perhaps in a cupboard underneath but wherever you decide, remember to consider cable management.

Cable Management

When it comes to electronic appliances, the last thing you want are cables everywhere cluttering up your up your fancy new media wall. That’s why it’s important to plan where you’ll be situating your devices and leave a route through which you can channel cables out of sight to wherever they need to go, like the TV. For power cables you may consider installing some plug sockets in handy reach of your devices.

Want to incorporate an electric fire in your media wall?

It’s very on trend to incorporate a luxury electric fire such as the New Forest  1900 into your media wall. The fires have been designed to be installed to suit most installations and you can choose a 3 sided, front facing or corner option to suit.  These deluxe electric fires offer superior flame visuals and can be enjoyed with different fuel beds effects, slate, diamond light or the popular signature logs.  It is important to note that all of this can be enjoyed without any heat, perfect for when it’s warm enough but you’d just like some added ambience especially as these nights begin to close in on us.
