A smooth, clean-lined entertainment center.

An Entertainment Center Is An Essential In Many 21st Century Homes

The trend in entertainment centers for 2019 is towards smooth, clean lines, doing away with some of the “fussy” designs of the past. If you are thinking of a new high-end entertainment center, Fort Lauderdale, this is something to bear in mind.

Typically, a high-end entertainment center, Fort Lauderdale, has three levels. The bottom level is usually around 2’6” high and contains storage drawers and cupboards for things such as DVDs, CDs, cassettes, game cartridges, and so on. The middle section is where the electronics and TV stand, and the top area is usually for display.

Clean Lines Are The Watchwords

At the sides there may be open shelves for display or more cupboards, but clean lines are the watchwords. Most people just do not want the ornate traditional look any more, and many of the entertainment centers now are white, or painted a color. In fact, this is true of around two in every five cases. For those who do like wood, cherry is a good choice because there is a range of color options. Maple is another stalwart, but nobody wants oak any more. This is because oak is grainy, and this goes against the desire for clean lines because it looks too “busy”.

Some customers who are having a custom-built high end entertainment center, Fort Lauderdale, are opting to install an electric fire in it. However, there are today more people who don’t want to see the television when it is not on, and so the set can stand on an elevator lift which raises it into view when needed and then slides down again when viewing is finished. Another way of doing this is to have pocket doors built in which slide over the screen, or even have some artwork mounted over it that can be slid up or down when the television is required for use.

Of course, the trend today is for ever larger television sets, and 65” sets are not at all uncommon, although you can buy 77” and larger. You are also looking at having a much larger entertainment center in which to mount it, and it is not unusual now for the entertainment center to cover a complete wall of the room. Of course, a 65” or 77” is quite deep from top to bottom, so if it is to be on an elevator the base of the center will have to be deeper in order to accommodate it, which means that when the set is raised it will be much higher off the floor. That is something to take into consideration when having a custom-built center made.

The Benefits Of Custom Entertainment Centers In West Palm Beach

Custom Entertainment CentersIt’s a fact that many families want to install an entertainment center in their homes and that there are plenty of designs from which to choose. However, the problem with “off the shelf” entertainment centers is that they are just that. They are designed and built by manufacturers who produce what they THINK and HOPE that you like, but in the majority of cases they will not do exactly what you want them to do.

For example, one advertises “fits all TV’s up to 88 inches”. That’s fine, but what if your TV is only 43 inches? Will it just look too small with all that space around it? The problem is that we all have our own individual tastes and requirements. In addition, we want the entertainment canter to fit in with the décor in our room and we want it the right size – not too big so that it is overpowering, and not too small.

The Short Answer Is Custom Built

The short answer is custom entertainment centers in West Palm Beach. Your living room is the hub of your home and is a place where you spend a lot of time, and with custom entertainment centers in West Palm Beach you can design it yourself so that it fits perfectly. You can have it crafted out of your choice of different materials and with shelves where you want them. The same thing applies to storage drawers. You may need more or less drawers than the family next door, and you may want shelves on which to display flowers or ornaments which you may very well not be able to do on a shop-bought one.

You might also want space for family photographs or pictures that you have bought where the one from the shop has no such spaces. With a custom entertainment center you can specify exactly what you want in terms of spaces and the size of individual shelving and storage drawers.

Maybe you want to hide your TV away when it is not in use. Custom entertainment centers in West Palm Beach can be designed so that your TV will pop out at the click of a button. Perhaps you would like to incorporate some fancy lighting? That’s no problem whatever.

The beauty of a custom entertainment center is that it is built around YOU and what you want, rather than what a manufacturer thinks that you want. Certainly, there are a lot of different entertainment centers available, but there is nothing to beat the one that you designed yourself.

High End Custom Kitchen Cabinetry

High End Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinetry

Simply put; the kitchen is the soul of the Home. It is where the nourishment comes from. Food is essential in everyday living. Your cabinetry should reflect these ideals. CAC designs kitchens in the most practical way. We handle kitchen projects with 3 things in mind. Food handling, cooking and cleaning. We break down the kitchen into these 3 main concepts, so we can understand how people and things flow in and out of the kitchen.

First things first. Food handling.
When it comes to food handling, we think of 2 main components. Your fridge and your pantry. We strive for these two components to stay together. When pantries and refrigerators are paired together, it makes for a very convenient kitchen because all the food is together in one place. No need to scramble or move from one end of the kitchen to the other. It needs to be simple and it needs to be accessible.

Next steps: Cooking.
Cooking refers to any area that is destined to prep, cook and cool down food. First thing to consider in this step is where the cooktops and oven will go. It is a good idea to keep them within close range. At CAC we always consider the appliance type that the client has in mind and we make suggestions/modifications based on the space available. Proper ventilation is always considered at this step (making sure a hood or downdraft is accounted for). Microwave placement is a very important part of this phase. The trick with getting microwave placement right is to make sure its accessible by everyone without disrupting the cook.

Cleaning:
At CAC we make sure your cleaning area and dishwasher are accounted for. Also, at this step we ensure that cleaning supplies have a dedicated place in the kitchen for easy access. Making sure you place the trashcans properly also is a key factor in considering all the cleaning needs of a kitchen.

Once we identify these key areas, we translate them onto a floorplan which we then use to the design the leftover storage areas and move on to aesthetics. CAC has a systematic approach to custom kitchen cabinetry projects. It must be functional, it has to be beautiful and it will be built the right way.
