Media Wall Design & Installation in Manchester
1 CommentTuesday, 26 October 2021 | Admin
Media Walls are a fairly new concept which combine your TV and fireplace whilst providing a great way to conceal cables. If you live in a modern home with a plain, rectangle room, they also allow you to add character by painting or tiling the wall so that it really stands out and provides a much needed focal point.
The Heat Installers team offer a professional installation service across Greater Manchester and North Cheshire. Whilst our team are all Gas Safe and HETAS registered and many of the installations they carry out include a gas fire or wood burning stove, more recently, we have recently transformed lots of homes with a full Media Wall design and installation service.
The majority of Media Walls we install feature an electric fire in landscape format. We build out a stud wall in the room with a recess designed for any type of inset electric fire to suit your individual room. From square designs that offer a taller flame picture to extra wide fires up to 2 metres in length which boasts an incredible, panoramic flame view.
We can then build a custom recess into the stud wall to accommodate your own flat screen television so that the face of the TV sits flush with the face of the wall creating a stylish finish. In addition to the TV recess, we can build alcoves within the fake chimney breast to display ornaments or to house media boxes, etc. Many homeowners opt for ambient LED lighting which can even be illuminated in conjunction with the fire for a wonderful, contemporary feature.
You can opt for a simple plaster finish allowing you to paint or wallpaper the stud wall. Tiling the stud wall looks great and allows you to add extra depth to the Media Wall or for the adventurous, Venetian Plastering is now very popular and allows you to choose from an extensive range of custom finishes including marble effect, concrete, metallic and textured finish.
You can enhance any room with a Media Wall and electric fire combination. No chimney or flue is needed making them a welcome addition in main living rooms, dining rooms, extensions, conservatories and even bedrooms! Tailor the design to your exact requirements and enjoy a contemporary centerpiece where the television doesn't need to compete with the fireplace as the main focal point.
