Small Home Theater

A dramatic addition to this home theater is the 120 gallon saltwater reef aquarium built into the wall and viewable from both sides. A home office on the opposite side has equality with the saltwater reef in sight as well as accessible plumbing and mechanics above and below. The lit art niches are another added feature to showcase the home theater feel and experience.

wall niches - What are the dimensions of each niche? How hard is it to add wall niches like these to an already existing wall? Would i need a framer and sheetrocker or just a sheet rock person?

The niches are 36" wide x 42" tall x 5 1/2" deep. All finished dimensiions! If you were to apply this to an existing wall, it would need to be an interior wall that does not have insulation. In this application, we furred the existing exterior wall out with 2x6's, thus leaving a 5 1/2" cavity for the niches.

Hope that asweres your question.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In home theaters the cool glow of an aquarium provides just the right ambience.
