Bridgeport Theater Room

Working with the guys from Mann Made Homes we created this fantastic Home Theater in Bridgeport.  We used an Epson 6030 projector paired with a Screen Innovations 110" Pure White Screen.  There is a Klipsch 7.1 surround speaker system with the front speakers and subwoofer tucked behind custom grills in the beautifully designed cabinet that frames the screen.  A Denon receiver powers the system and is controlled by an RTI remote.  A great room in which to spend quality time with the family watching the latest blockbuster movie.  All the Magic of the Theater - All the Comfort of Home!

Sharp makes some of the largest LED LCD TVs available.  They started with a 60", added a 70" and then an 80" to their line up.   Now they have a 90" LED LCD TV.  You may think you can wrap your head around the size of these TV's, but you really have to see one to comprehend just how big they really are.  Below is a picture of an 80" we recently installed in a pool house.  The TV is 76" wide, 44" high and 4" deep.  To put that in proper perspective, the cabinet is 18' wide and 10' high.

We often get the opportunity to work with many wonderful and talented builders, contractors, trades, design firms and artisans.  On this job we worked with Kara Kennedy and Cathy Claxton from Turner Boaz Architecture.  The client wanted to redecorate their master bedroom and brought in Kara and Cathy as the interior design team.  We entered into the project when they decided to remove the big bulky armoire that housed the TV and local AV equipment.   The client wanted a larger TV mounted on the wall with all the AV gear moved around the corner into a built in cabinet.

Just a single row of RGB LED lights can really change the look of a room.  LED light strips like the one in the pictures below are mainly used to create ambiance in a room.   Add them above or below the counters in the kitchen.  Put them behind your TV or theater screen for a really cool look that will also help relieve eyestrain.  Line your bookshelves with cool to the touch lighting that won't damage your books or knick knacks.  Install them outside and your holiday lighting is done forever.
