What r the cabinets/back wall made of?
The cabinetry on either side of the TV is wood done by a professional cabinet maker. The curved header on the ceiling was a fairly tricky installation. Bottom cabinetry on either side of the fireplace is wood sheathed in steel on the doors..
example of cabinetry - that looks like walls flanking the fireplace
with the kitchen on the other end. To make it blend with the kitchen, we used the same color of stain on the wood as in the kitchen cabinetry. We wanted clean lines and a more minimal look, so the mantel and hearth as well as the header above stretch wall to wall. To balance the larger TV with the smaller
of the cabinetry and the hearth to give the area below the mantel enough visual weight to offset the larger TV. Lighting below the mantel shows off the copper-patina steel and also gives the lower half more visual weight.
