Blank canvas (wall) Inspiration required!

Always cut the red wire!

Morning all,

not been on here for years!

Hope you are all well and staying safe.

I literally have a blank canvas for my TV wall.

I want to mount the TV to the wall and not see any boxes/wires/etc at all.

I can make stud wall, plaster it etc as I am yet to plasterboard and plaster.

Instead of the normal cabinet/hanging unit under the TV, I want some sort of setup where the Sky box, CCTV hard drive, etc are hidden away or tucked into a 'side' cupboard or false wall type thing.

At the moment my idea is to have the TV mount, cantilever, against the wall, then stud wall around the mount only, as I do not want the TV to 'sit' in a recess. This is to future proof if we went larger. Currently got a 65".

Then thinking of putting in piping going sideways from behind the TV into some sort of false wall/stud wall which either has a door/glass/false wall to the side.

I have made a stud wall to the left to hide a soil pipe so I can either make this wider or replicate it on the right.

See pictures attached, I will add more today to show where I'm at.

The TV can go central to the whole wall OR from the already constructed stud wall to the wall on the right - I hope that makes sense!

Ideas welcome please...
