Now that is nice. Great thinking and planning. I once toured a multi-million dollar showcase home and they had a really big screen TV built into that space but the staircase it was built under was quite a show piece itself. Oh well. haha. Good thinking pal.

Beautiful job! I especially like the China Hutch. It's neat to see someone add those quality touches to a contemporary home. The space between the studs of old homes here in the St.Louis area are frequently found to have these nice touches. My daughter's last apartment & the home she lives in now have cabinet doors beneath the kitchen windows. These cabinets placed between the studs of exterior walls were used for refridgeration of perishables in the old days. I think they have an "R" value of -5. Can you imagine someone doing that with the cost of heating & cooling a home these days?!
