All the kitchens shown have been supplied and fitted by Xclusive Kitchens Sheffield.
Are you the kind of homeowner who craves a balance between practicality and panache in their home décor? If so, the layout of your lounge will represent a subject of considerable interest. As the room in which you’ll spend a significant amount of your leisure time and where you’ll likely entertain your guests, it’s important to strike upon a design which immediately captures the attention.
A media wall can do that. Far more than simply a mounted television, a professionally installed media wall will instantly draw the eye towards it, often through the incorporation of an electric fire alongside a substantial screen. At the same time, the concealment of unsightly cables and wires is all part of the package, providing a neat and tidy focal point for the room. Here are 21 examples of media walls that have been installed by Xclusive in and around the Sheffield area. Take inspiration for your very own version of this stunning centrepiece and get in touch with us to start the ball rolling on your new-look lounge, today!
Games room glamour
What’s a games room for if not relaxing and revelling? This floor-to-ceiling media wall is the perfect addition to this games room, with the 75” television taking pride of place above an elegant, 1,500mm three-sided fire. The surrounding unit has a refined Venetian plaster finish in a richly dark tone of grey, complementing the classical foundations laid by the marble-effect flooring. The entire unit was designed and constructed by Xclusive, who also handled all electrics and plastering in a single day.
The textured wall behind this sophisticated unit accentuates its finest features, ably assisted by the bulkheads and spotlights that surround it. The unit itself contains a 1,500mm three-sided fireplace below a 65” TV, providing a clear point of focus for the gorgeously modern living room arrangement. The unit comes in an understated shade of grey, while the MDF panelling structure and all-in-one build, plastering and electrics package help to keep costs competitive. Installed in one day.
The delicate blend of grey tones and varying textures in this media wall bring the whole room to life. The darker hues of the tiled hearth work as a pleasing contrast to the dancing flames of the 1,500mm fire above them, while the softer, ashy tones of the unit itself frame the 55” television perfectly. The grey textured brickwork behind and the plush carpet underfoot combine to make this a perfect study in the power of this versatile colour. Fitted in just one day.
In the mood for media
The striking attributes of this living room design are emphasised by the mood lighting at its heart. The effect is achieved via a slight tilt of the 65” television screen, allowing for an atmospheric glow to seep from behind it and into the room. Below, the 1,300mm front-facing fire offsets the cool blue above with its fiery tones, creating a harmonious atmosphere that welcomes as it warms. All aspects of the job were again handled by Xclusive and the installation was completed in one session.
This innovative design dispenses with the idea of a single unit, instead making use of the full span of the wall to make its statement. The two-sided corner fire allows for multi-angled views of the inferno inside, while the tower of logs adjacent complete the cosy effect. Indeed, the warmth which the ensemble exudes is especially complementary in a room dominated by wintry whites and greys, while the wall-mounted TV provides a fitting focal point for this snug living room setting. Fitted in one day.
The marble effect on this eye-catching unit imparts a classical antiquity to its surroundings that would befit Ancient Rome or Greece. With the three-sided 1,500mm fire and the ample screen of the 55” recessed TV bringing further dignity to the room, it’s a set-up that’s guaranteed to inspire assurance in the homeowner and awe in their guests. Again, Xclusive were responsible for handling the plastering and electrics as well as the design and build, completing the installation in a day.
This homeowner has chosen an all-white unit which sits flush with the wall behind, creating a seamless aesthetic into which the 55” TV and 1,500mm three-sided fire sit perfectly. It’s a quite dazzling sight which works exceptionally well with the rest of the room’s décor; white panelling on the walls and soft grey hues on the carpet are picked out with angular precision by the shards of light thrown by the chandelier overhead. Just one day to transform this lounge into a winter wonderland.
Sophisticated and superior
This breath-taking living room media wall combines the latest in state-of-the-art technology with a truly premium design to achieve an effect that perfectly balances flair and finesse. A 75” television sits directly above a fitted soundbar, while below, the 1,800mm fire is of such generous proportions and graceful poise that it will invariably turn heads. The whole unit is Alexa compatible and comes equipped with adjustable ambient lighting, resulting in a rare specimen. One day to install.
This imposing unit projects into the room with confidence, housing a 55” TV and three-sided hearth that’s 1,500mm in length. Best of all, however, is the manner in which the fire functions; by downloading an app, the homeowner can adjust the heat levels (and the visual impact) in the living room with the merest touch of a button. Ambient lighting fitted in the surround of the screen completes the futuristic fancies of this modern media wall. Fitted in one day.
A wall transformed
Another installation that spans the entire wall, this unit contains six sizable shelves for the display of ornaments, incense sticks and any other knickknacks which the homeowner might wish to use to convey their own personality. The recesses sit either side of the wall’s star attractions: a 55” TV sitting atop a fitted soundbar and 1,500mm front-facing fireplace. The extra labour involved in this one necessitated a two-day installation, but the results speak for themselves.
Bigger can be better
This expansive design is almost a mirror image of the previous one – but with its dimensions exaggerated. The shelves (complete with spotlights) are enlarged to create space for more storage, while the fire enjoys an extra 300mm and a three-sided design. Above, the fitted soundbar serves a 65” television which is sure to relay the action from any show, film or sporting event with crystal clarity. Again, two days were involved in the installation of this beautiful behemoth.
With a Venetian plaster finish and colour-changing ambient lighting installed throughout, this wall-spanning work of art was installed as part of a kitchen and lounge package from Xclusive. Both the 55” TV set and three-sided, 1,500mm fireplace are compatible with Alexa, allowing you to turn up the heat and change channels with voice commands alone. What’s more, the generously proportioned shelves provide excellent storage and variable illumination to suit any ambiance. Two-day installation.
Bronzed and beautiful
Occupying the entirety of this expansive wall, this refined media unit combines cutting-edge technology with innovative design to make a statement all of its own. The ample shelved recesses are backed by a bronze mirror and illuminated by angled downlights, while the dropped ceiling comes with its own adjustable mood lighting, too. The 75” TV is equipped with a soundbar, both of which can be controlled by Alexa, while the 1,800mm, three-sided fire below provides the crackling icing on the cake. Two-day fit.
The clean white lines and squared contours of this wall-hugging media unit make it a joy to behold. The spacious shelving comes equipped with adjustable mood lighting for illuminating all your curios and trinkets, while the brickwork backdrop complements the refined tone set by the pristine plasterwork. As for its technical attributes, the wall contains a 55” TV screen and a 50” front-facing fire, both of which draw the eye without demanding attention. All in all, it’s a display that exudes quiet confidence.
The Venetian plaster finish on this sturdy media wall unit has a concrete effect, making it ideal for the environs of a contemporary living room. The oblong opulence of the 74” front-facing fireplace is matched by the 75” TV screen above, while the mood lighting positioned in the television’s recess is the perfect way to enhance its charms even further. The full build and electrics were all professionally installed in just one day by the Xclusive team.
This full-wall media arrangement is the epitome of luxury. The six alcoves on either side of the 55” television screen are expansive and deep enough to house whatever ornamentation you desire, while the downlighting which casts a mesmerising glow on them comes supplied and fitted as part of the unit. Below the TV, there’s a further recess which houses the soundbar, while the 50” front-facing fireplace completes the attractive ensemble. Just two days to handle the full build and electrics project.
The unusual architecture on this media wall makes creative use of the space at its disposal. An enormous 75” screen takes pride of place in the centre of the display, while the 1,800mm fire boasts three sides and Alexa compatibility to ensure that its owner need not compromise on any practical convenience or aesthetic allure. It’s the interesting structure of the shelving units that really set this wall apart, however, with spotlights included to accentuate its selling points. Two days to install and activate.
This lofty unit reaches from floor to ceiling, extending its impressive aspect across the room. Featuring a 55” TV and a three-sided fireplace 1,500mm in length, it projects into the space with imposing confidence. The gorgeous grey tones of its paintwork are accentuated by the white trim of the skirting, which is included as part of the single-day installation. All electrics are compatible with Alexa, making it supremely satisfying from a user-experience perspective.
The white plaster finish on this iconic unit creates an irresistible contrast with the stark ochre of the brickwork behind it, while the fitted bulkhead downlighting in the upper recesses casts pleasing shadows downwards. There is similarly atmospheric lighting included with the spacious shelving alcoves, while both the 55” TV and the 1,500mm front-facing fireplace can be fine-tuned using Alexa commands alone. A thoroughly modern media wall.
As stylish as it is spacious
Measuring four metres in diameter, this incredible wall unit has plentiful dimensions to play with – and it makes the most of the options at its disposal. There are five amply proportioned shelves either side of the central unit, including two taller recesses perfect for houseplants or oversized ornaments. Meanwhile, the 65” TV is fitted with its own soundbar below and the 74” front-facing fire is equipped with colour-changing capabilities. All downlights are supplied and fitted as standard.
Media in marble
The owners of this breath-taking media wall have gone all-in on marble. From the richly textured marble tiling underfoot to the darkly contrasting marble on the hearth and shelves, it’s an exquisite ensemble guaranteed to wow all who set eyes upon it. The dropped ceiling features strip lighting, while there is further atmospheric illumination to be found at floor level. As for the technology, the unit houses a 65” TV, sound bar and 1,500mm three-sided fire, all of which are at Alexa’s (and your) beck and call.
