What is a Media Wall?


A Media Wall is a specially built wall in your home that can house (and hide, if necessary) your audio, video, gaming and any other media equipment, whilst being aesthetically pleasing and looking as though it’s always been part of the room.

They can be minimalistic and subtle, or bold stand out feature walls. All of our Media Walls are Bespoke and designed to align with our clients vision, they are quite often categorised into Chimney Breast Media Walls or Shelving and Storage Media Walls. 

Chimney Breast Media Walls

A Chimney Breast Media Wall is often slightly larger than the width of your TV. It can include an Electric Fire, Sound Bar and Smart Lighting behind the TV. The structure of the Chimney Breast forms the perfect cavity for running and managing cables, resulting in a clean, cable free finish. 

Although they contain less elements to our larger bespoke Media Walls, there are still many ways in which you can personalise to get a bespoke finish. From fire installation variants, mantels, paint colour and other unique finishes. The Home Cinema Interiors team will have as many conversations as you require to ensure you are completely happy with your design before we begin.

Our Media Wall designs are bespoke and built depending on the customers’ needs and desires. They look best when they echo the architecture and décor of the home, they add character to an interior, reduce clutter and make the walls appear thicker resulting in a sense of solidity and permanence. They even become a selling feature if one day you decided to move home.

Shelving and Storage Media Walls

Shelving and Storage Media Walls usually start at around 3 metres in width and can be as large as the wall space you have on offer.

The shelving in our Media Walls can be in the form of built cubes, floating shelves or glass shelves. We often incorporate alcoves into our larger wall which are perfect for shelving, log stores, pendent lights, artwork and more. We’ve even had external windows featured within our larger walls. The built cube form is perfect for installation of downlights, allowing each shelving area to be lit using smart light bulbs and technology, giving control over the strength of light and colour at your fingertips. 

Storage has become a sought after element for many of our clients, drawers and cupboards within Media Walls provide the perfect solution for all the living room necessities that are required close by, but not necessarily on show. 

The larger size of these Media Walls also lend themselves well for the incorporation of interior design finishes, such as slat panelling, wood or stone worktops, tile or brick effect, variable paint finishes, mirrors and more! 

All Home Cinema Interiors Media Walls are designed and built uniquely for each client dependant on their style, room space, vision and interior preferences.

Our Media Walls installations include...

  • Building of the structure

    The Media Wall begins with a wooden frame. A bespoke build depending on the size and features of the Media Wall.

  • Installation of concealed cabling

    The cable and electrical installation and management begins at this stage. Media Walls create the perfect cavities and space for concealed cables.

  • Boarding and plastering

    The Media Wall is then boarded and plastered. At this point it begins to seamlessly become part of the room.

  • Painting

    We can match the paint on your Media Wall to the rest of the room, or alternatively paint the whole room.

  • Lighting

    We offer a range of lighting options including back lit screens, ceiling lighting and shelving lighting - all can be incorporated into your Media Wall. We also specialise in smart lighting systems.

  • Shelving

    As each Media Wall design is bespoke, we can incorporate surrounding shelves, cupboards and drawers depending on your needs and how you imagine the finished look.

  • Sound bar installation/ceiling mounted speakers

    Sound bars and speakers are an important part of any AV installation, and quality sound is an integral part of our Media Walls.

  • Inset electric fire installation

    You don’t need to choose between TV or fireplace to anchor your living rooms. Beautiful inset electric fireplaces can really bring the wow factor.

  • Josh and team did an amazing job with our media wall. And there was an existing structure where they created the media wall, so they had to be creative to come up with support structureI am amazed by their execution quality and speed. It’s rare to get your vision turn into reality and this team made it happen. And without any fuss. I mean they are real professionals, the entire process right from contacting them for a quote to the final media wall was very seamlessly managed.

    Sameer Das

  • I was recommended Josh and his team for building a media wall with fireplace and after speaking with him I was incredibly impressed with his knowledge and expertise in building media walls. We agreed a design and Josh gave great advice on what would look good.Josh was an absolute pleasure to have on-site, so much so that I hired him to also build a naturewall with hidden storage as well as build some storage cupboards in our kids playroom. Throughout all the jobs, Josh made sure it was completed to his own very high standards and nothing we asked was too much.I would highly recommend Josh both for workmanship but also just how easy he is to deal with. He transformed our home and we are grateful to have worked with him.
