Media Room/Home Theater

Winter Park, Fla.

Project name: Highland
Project location: Winter Park, Fla.
Square footage: 426 (media room only)
Total project cost: $135,000

The objective of this design was to create a media room that could also function as a family room on a day-to-day basis. This was also the challenge for Phil Kean Designs in Winter Park, Fla. Another objective for this room was planning plenty of storage for all the media equipment and the client’s large movie collection. The solution was to locate the media room next to the kitchen to meet family room functionality. For everyday functions, a large TV was installed in the center of the custom cabinetry. When the client watches movies, a large screen unfurls from a concealed compartment in the cabinetry, and large automated blackout drapes darken the space. The custom cabinetry provides plenty of storage and houses the electronics as well as a mini bar.
