Hiding a TV in a steakhouse banquet room by making it look like a window.
As a local small business owner, I love helping other small, local businesses with their window treatments. When Tony’s of Cincinnati needed to transform their banquet room to match the upscale style of their steakhouse, we were happy to help. We were happy to work with the architect’s designer on this project.
Window Accents to the Rescue!
Window Accents installed Hunter Douglas Heritance Hardwood Shutters on the room’s six windows. The designer was pleased with how the Pewter color of the wood blended perfectly with the new wallpaper. The wide, 3 ½dz adjustable louvers can be tilted to let the light in or closed for a more private dining area. To give the room a richer, more customized look, we used a frame that looks like decorative trim. In addition to window coverings, Tony’s also had a wall-mounted TV they wanted to make disappear when it wasn’t in use.
Using the same framing and shutters, we enclosed the flat-screen TV. Guests are always surprised when the shutters are opened and they see a TV instead of a window!
We Work Well With Interior Designers
The designer wanted to see as little hardware as possible and we had the solution. The Venetian Bronze hinges blend nicely with the color of the wood so you hardly realize they are there. In keeping with the clean, contemporary lines, we used a hidden rear tilt on the Heritance shutters instead of the more traditional front tilt bars.
