Concealing your entertainment gear doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes, all it takes is the right piece of furniture to make everything disappear. The owners of this home accomplished the sleight of hand in their Rancho Santa Fe, CA, home by simply sliding a pair of sleek stainless steel doors across the front of their custom-made entertainment cabinet. With the doors shut, the room functions as a peaceful breakfast room where the family can enjoy a casual meal in comfort.
When they’re ready for some excitement, they simply pull back the doors to reveal a Sony TV. The sound from the television is amplified and switched to the high-quality speakers automatically, turning the nook into one of the family’s favorite entertainment spots.
It took teamwork to blend the audio/video components and the cabinet together. Modern Home Systems of San Diego provided the cabinetmaker with the dimensions of each component as well as ventilation requirements. Based on that information, Van’s Custom Cabinetry crafted a piece that suited the needs of the entertainment gear, the design of the room and the tastes of the family.
