5 Living Room Medium Hardwood Floors Standard Layout Fireplace Media Cabinet Design Photos And Ideas

A new wood-panel wall is a focal point in the open layout. The original white oak floors were also refinished.
The original fireplace was cleaned up and repaired. "Also, the room previously had just a small passageway to the kitchen and no real place to put a television. We’re not big TV watchers, so we wanted to keep the mantle TV-free, so that it was not a focal point of the room," says Valencia. "We opened up the passage to the kitchen to give the home a modern layout and added a built-in TV/media cabinet (on the left wall)."
With its walls of windows, stone fireplace, and wood floors, this living area was kept much as Emery designed it.
Beside the fireplace is a Nexus 21 lift system, which is used to hide the television when it’s off.
