Home Entertainment Design Help! (pic)
We bought a 13 year old house with a built in that my husband loves. Sadly, it was built around the old "big" TV's and we've had enough of not having HD and missing what's going on on the right and left sides of the screen. We've been going around in circles trying to figure out what we can do to make it work. Including getting an estimate to retro-fit the existing built in. The quotes for retro-fit were more than we want to spend ($12000?!, and that's AFTER talking them down) and the TV would still be on the small size for the room (55"). (And, that doesn't even include buying the TV!) I'm posting a photo of the room. I found a 46" LCD TV that we thought we might be able to live with but I think it's just too small. And clearly, we'd have to mount it to something we build in where the old TV was. I'm wondering if anyone has any insight or experience with this and maybe even before and after pics. FYI, we live in South Florida and ceilings here on single level homes are quite high (I think it's 20 feet). Thoughts? Thanks!
