Integrated Built-in Cabinetry
Using Built-ins to Create the Hub of the Home
This central room formally titled the "KISS Room" due to the original builder's love for all things related to the band KISS, was transformed to create an elegant, novel, and integrated experience for the new homeowner and their family. This room has now become the center/hub of the house. The clients came to the G. Christianson team seeking a room that serves multiple purposes with a cohesive style. The Library allows a relaxing place to cozy up with soft piano music and peace for a home office during the day. In the evenings and during family get-togethers, the former KISS Room offers the perfect gathering space with new technology and a modern speaker system.
“We asked Christianson to design and build an entertainment center, a built in bookshelf and a built in desk and credenza. Designer Elizabeth captured our concept and turned it into a beautiful design plan. Ron at the cabinet shop came up with ideas for materials we would have never thought of. All the guys in the cabinet shop got excited about our project and we could tell we were in the hands of skilled craftsman. Jon kept us informed of the timing of construction throughout the project. They truly customized the space and the overall product exceeded our expectations.”

The entire room features a rift-sawn White Oak wood species, that is installed with a horizontal grain that continues along the same grain lines all the way around the room for a seamless and modern look. We recommend this look be used on a slab cabinet door and drawer style.
Behind the seamless door design, hides functional filing cabinets for increased storage within a house of minimal storage options. The filing drawers are built with G. Christianson's standard drawer construction including dovetail boxes and Blum slow-close slide hardware.
The design of this built-in entertainment center features an increase of depth in the center set of cabinets. The use of alternating depths in this long run of cabinets creates visual interest and provides a clear focal point.
The central cabinet of this built-in entertainment center provides a sturdy shelf for the speakers to sit on, which can be rolled out for ease of access.

What our Clients are Saying
“Always very satisfied. Will certainly have you again when needed.”
Pat Wallace, Corvallis
“They took our period bathroom and built a gorgeous and accessible shower with great sensitivity to the historic details. They left no mess, and finished every detail perfectly. They adapted to small changes we suggested and made errors right. Tony, especially, was just terrific to work with and the cabinetmaker was a master!”
