Entertaiment cabinetry shown with bi-fold retractable doors closed
This entertainment cabinetry for the great room features a TV space behind bi-fold retractable doors, an electric built-in firepace (supplied by owner), storage, and lit display areas.  The overall depth was kept fairly shallow to incorporate a flat panel TV and to maintain the seating arrangement.  High ceilings allow for a dramatic height change in cabinetry without overpowering the room.  We worked closely with the owner to incorporate all of the elements they wanted for this space, which includes planning around electrical and cable outlets.  It's not unusual for a cabinetry design to go through several design changes.
Some of the other features of this cabinetry are:
  • Raised panel solid maple doors and drawer fronts
  • Frameless style cabinets with concealed European hinges
  • All adjustable shelving, display shelves have a glass insert
  • Solid birch dovetail roll-out drawers and shelves
  • Blum® Solo undermount slides
  • Accuride® bi-fold retractable door hardware with cable system
  • Moldings in solid maple: crown, furniture base, 5 inch beaded vertical pilasters, corbels, curved valances, fireplace trim, and detail moldings
  • Carved corbels from Enkeboll
  • Dentil molding detail on crown
  • Halogen downlighting with black trim in display areas on a touch switch with a three stage dimming function
  • Touch latch openings for doors and drawers

The detail photo above shows the crown molding with dentil onlay, the beaded vertical pilaster molding, arched valance, and the Enkeboll corbels in the Acanthus pattern.  The black trim rings on the halogen light in the center of the cabinet ceiling blend in with the stained wood.  The lighting is on a concealed touch switch that controls three levels of light as well as on/off.

The photo to the left shows the TV space with the bi-fold retractable doors in the open position. There are three drawers below this space for remote controls and DVD storage.  On either side of the fireplace are doors with cabinetry access. These have small roll-out shelves for additional storage.  

The base cabinets on either end have adjustable full-depth shelves.  The display areas above these have two adjustable shelves each, framed in wood with a clear glass insert to let the light shine through.
