Need help with built-ins next to fireplace ???

4 years ago

We originally planned to have built-ins (cabinets below and shelves above) on each side of 10' stone fireplace in great room. Plans changed during construction and most of the fireplace was moved outside the house. Therefore, we do not have the depth we anticipated next to the fireplace. We want the fireplace to be focal point and don't want built-ins extending past masonry into the room. We also hate to cover up all the stone on the sides. TV will be on the right side of the fireplace. We can't do what we had planned so trying to determine in built-ins make sense now.

Any ideas for this area? Has anyone had built-in units that do not attach directly to the fireplace, so the stone is still visible on the sides.

This is our dilemma - any creative ideas or pictures of similar situations?
