    In the process of designing a floating wall and was thinking of having a small shelf above the centre speaker and below the TV with space for the likes of a Wii receiver / PS3 receiver / webcam etc.

    However, ideally, I'd be able to hide it away so it can't be seen unless it's being used.

    Any suggestions? I was thinking along the lines of a shelf with a lid on it - almost like an elongated jewellery box.

    Any other suggestions? Not even that sure I need this but I don't want to have the wall build and then wish I'd put it in.

    This is what i would do:

    In-between the centre and tv cut out a slot and build a shel in the wall there and have the wall protrude into the front of the slot on both sides. This is for your game censors.

    Above tv in centre another smaller slot this is for your camera. If you had it lower by centre speaker then at sitting hight wouldnt be good viewing angle. If was a ps3 cam tho you'd want it in centre slot.


    The indented part of the wall want to be slightly recessed.

    The indent bits of wall cover with velcro. The cut piece of mdf to size of gap leaving just a slight gap for a finger to remove it and use other bit of velcro on that and you have a cover for your wall. The cover can be plastered or painted or papered =)

    Thanks for the reply & the effort you put in.

    Similar to what I had in mind - although I am wondering if a hinged cover for the shelf might be better. Almost, like I said before, like a box of some type?

    Hinge can work its just more effort a hinge will last longer than velco to e sure but for the price of the stuff of self adhesive squares you can get 20+ for just over £1 so a pack can last a while.
