    Hello Helous, thanks for your question. The property had a central AV system that meant DVDs etc. could all be seen through out the house, so central cupboard elsewhere. If you wanted a simpler system, then you would install a 2cm dia flexi pipe from the back of the tv, through the false chimney and in to a movable cabinet on one side or the other. Its also future proofs it as you can run new wiring through at a later date as required. Hope that helps.

    I know what you mean, it's very frustrating when you don't get a response

    Hi. The gas fireplace is a glass fronted unit so this keeps the heat from rising up the front of the fireplace. It is set in a hollow 'false' breast that also has high level vents on either side. This allows the heat to escape from inside the boxing out. The fireplace unit is from 'Bellfires Ltd'. Hope that helps.

Line it up with the firePrevent your TV from competing with the fireplace by opting for a symmetrical layout like this one. A recess has been carved into a false chimney breast to fit the screen and line up with the fire below. The effect is neat and easy on the eye, with neither feature taking centre stage. In a design like this one, the wires are usually run behind the false wall to keep things streamlined. This type of project, where a fireplace is involved, is a job for a professional, so seek advice.

Fireplace: Just noting that I like the more rectangular fireplace versus bigger square. Not looking at anything else here.
