What goes above the counter? 25" depth is a big counter - you could fill the wall with BD/DVD bookshelves. Here's mine with a downlight and glass shelves (a built in, but would look impressive over the cabinetry)...
Great looking shelves!
It def is a lot of space and I'm pushing for a small fridge but we've got one going in the bar that's also being built in the basement. But never know.
Only 2 of the main cabinets will be used for components. The other 2 mains for anything extra, like movies, games, etc. As far as the counter, just to place remotes, snacks, and any additional devices that someone might want to hook in. There will be wall plates with multiple inputs at the counter level for this. Otherwise, it's just finishing off that area to look nice.
Besides some kind of cabinetry in the nook, haven't been able to think of other things to fill it up.
Def open to any suggestions!
