I'm going to build alcove shelving and cupboards into either side of the chimney breast in the sitting room. Hopefully behind the boxing in there will be an original ireplace too!

These are contemporary style media wall units built from scratch in London UK by EMPATIKA.uk They are built into alcoves and the base units fit in front of the chimney breast to make a really striking media unit which would not have been the same if there were just units in each alcove. The base units act as a kind of supporting plinth that hold up the bookshelves and highlight the TV. http://EMPATIKA.uk
