The cost of a media wall in the UK can vary widely based on several factors including the complexity of the design, the materials used, the size of the unit. Custom built designs with high-quality materials plus the media electronics can run into the thousands.

Factors that can increase the cost include:

  • Materials: The type of materials used (e.g., wood, MDF, laminate, glass) significantly impacts the price. High-quality or luxury materials will increase costs.
  • Construction and Carpentry: Labour costs for building and installing the media wall, including any custom cabinetry work.
  • Size and Complexity: Larger and more complex installations require more materials and labour, increasing the overall cost.
  • Finish: The type of finish (e.g., paint, veneer, lacquer) can affect the price, with high-end finishes being more costly.
  • Integrated Technology: Including built-in speakers, LED lighting, or smart home integration can add to the expense.
  • Cable Management Systems: Advanced solutions for hiding and managing cables neatly can contribute to the cost.
  • Electrical Work: Additional electrical outlets, integrated charging stations, or modifications to existing electrical wiring.
  • Accessories and Fittings: Handles, hinges, and other hardware, especially if opting for high-end or custom pieces.
  • Delivery and Installation: The cost to deliver and professionally install the media wall, which can vary based on location and the complexity of the installation.
  • Additional Features: Features like adjustable shelving, hidden compartments, or integrated fireplaces can add to the cost.

It’s always best to prioritise the features and functionality you desire and you can allocate a budget towards them accordingly. This means you may be able to omit less important elements if the total costs exceed your budget.

If you are planning a media wall for a living room (for example), you may need to factor costs in for a fire place and this element alone can be considerable.
