    Glad to hear. LED gives much more light. We use that on many jobs as well.

    Because the LED diodes produce no heat, It has turned out to work well for our undercabinet valance lighting, our soffit lighting, our display cabinet lighting, our stair edging lighting- extremely versatile, very easy to install, minimal electrical requirements, and has given us the same "warm white" light finish throughout. it was a great find, and we will definitely use it on our next project as well. The electrical contractor purchased a roll of a 1000 feet to reduce his cost, which seemed like a large outlay at the time, but, because we have used it in so many applications around the house, the cost has actually been very reasonable. Would highly recommend others looking into this type of lighting- help bring those wholesale costs down...it certainly will be the way to go in the near future....

      Plan for your speakers. If you'd like surround sound, buy the speaker system you want and then run the wires, rather than the other way around. This way you'll know how many speaker wires to run and whether any parts of the system, such as a subwoofer, will need a dedicated outlet. If you are not planning to open up walls, consider mounting the speakers high on the wall and installing crown molding to hide the wires. They should still be run in wiremold to protect them, but you won't have that unsightly channel running around the room. Attach the mount to blocking. If you plan on mounting the TV to the wall, you will need to open up at least that part of the wall and install solid wood blocking so you can attach it. Any heavy object mounted to the wall should have wood blocking installed, but especially something as expensive as today's TVs.

      Larger media rooms, or great rooms that double as them on movie nights, can handle larger speakers. Here, the three visible speakers are custom-installed into the walls. All we see are the grills, which are painted to blend into the background. The rear speakers are in the ceiling, visible only as round grills that look remarkably like can lighting. This is a more expensive option, but it's one that eliminates the visible components and frees up floor space.
