Have decided to do things properly, finally, after getting the thumbs up from the Mrs!!! With a little help from a friend 3 doors away, who has done this kind of thing previously, and Google sketch (what a programme) we'll be starting next weekend on this little project. Floating wall will be 150cms wide x 120cms high mounted onto 34mm batons. First picture shows the wall that the floating wall and TV will be mounted on. We kinda drew the outline of it all on the wall, much to her delight!! The main wall is going to be painted a Mulberry plum colour from the Dulux range, floating wall will be an off white or cream colour. White rope lighting around the back of the floating wall, controlled by a 'home easy' dimmer remote. The only minor problem I have is that the whole lot is going to be above a radiator, but we'll be attaching a shelf to the bottom of the floating wall which will hopefully take most of the heat away. Second and third pics show the room as it is now. I did consider trying to do a corner set up of some sort, but this way I get a more conventional room. The 'alcove' where all the work is being done is on the right of the picture, which can be seen in pics 3 & 4. (Sorry about the dog featuring in the pics!!!) The kit I've got is: Panasonic TX32LXD52 Sky+ - soon to be Sky HD Denon AVR 1706 amp PS3 Sony DVD Recorder Bose Accoustimass fronts and sub KEF Q55.1 rear speakers Philips Prestigo SRU 8015. Not the most expensive set up and room for improvement, but it will do as a starting point. Will be enough room on the floating wall to increase TV size in the future. Will post more pics as the work gets underway. Thanks for your interest.
