Complete Room Makeover

The Complete Room Make Over: A Full Suite of Services for Your Interior Space

There are times when tweaks and tune-ups are sufficient. And there are times when a complete overhaul of an interior space is necessary. When the latter time comes, a complete room makeover is what you need to achieve the home theatre solution you are looking for.

But how exactly does this work? And what can you expect from the project? This is what we are going to take a look at right here, to give you the lowdown on what you will gain when you work with us on a project like this.

What the Client Needed from Us

This particular case study begins with a query via the online form. This is a great way to get in touch with us, as you can give us all the details you need and then we will get in touch with you. Each and every element of the project is carried out at your convenience, and there is no charge or obligation attached to the initial query.

In this case, the customer needed their old space stripped, and a full room transformation carried out. This is a big job, with lots of planning required before the execution takes place. Despite this, our team was confident that they could get the job done in only a few days.


However, there was an issue. 

The client’s plan and outline did not, in fact, match their interior space. This caused a hold-up on the project while the team re-calibrated the design to fit the reality of the interior space.

In the end, this re-orientation did not cause too much of a problem for the team, the client, or for their project. While the Universal team does request that you come to us with as much information as possible, and you do your best to ensure that this information is correct and complete, it is not the be-all and end-all of our services.

Our teams have the expertise required to reorganise and reset the information provided to us, to make sure it matches the space we are working with.

Our Complete Room Makeover Solution

With the room set up and the team ready to go, it was time to carry out our complete room makeover solution. We’ve broken down the process below.

Stripping out the room

Before we could begin, the room had to be prepared. This meant stripping out the space and priming all the surfaces. As stated, this is a complete room makeover — not an upgrade or tune-up — and our services really are complete. We take everything out of the room, achieving a blank canvas on which to work.

Relocating critical data and electrical services

Data and electrical connections are vital for any home theatre. With this in mind, the next step was placing these connections in the right places throughout the space. We run all the AV cabling through and into the room and installed the sound solution and projector.

Reorganising access

A room makeover is quite a serious undertaking, and one that requires a serious reorganisation of the space. This means reconfiguring access. We blocked the back door entrance and updated the step access to make the space more suitable for its new role as a home theatre.

Plastering and carpeting

We provide a full-service solution on every property that we work on. This means finishing the job completely with plastering and carpeting work.

Boosting the WiFi

The client had voiced concerns that his WiFi was not strong enough in the home theatre space. We put this right by installing a new WAP system to boost signal strength and quality and installing a second zone of audio in the alfresco area, along with enhanced controls.

The ultimate outdoor cinema experience

Who doesn’t love to kick back, relax, and unwind with a movie at the end of a long day? It’s one of the great pleasures in life, especially when paired with your favourite snacks, a glass of wine, and the company of your nearest and dearest.

Recently, we had the opportunity to develop and execute the ultimate outdoor cinema experience for a student accommodation campus in Brisbane. The finished result was simply spectacular, and we know the extremely busy, stressed-out students will appreciate a space that’s all about chilling out with friends.

Creating the cinema outdoors was a perfect idea for the warm, sunny Brisbane climate, but we still had to take weather conditions into consideration.

We’d love to share a little more information about this incredible project with you. It was a great opportunity to take the home theatre experience to a whole new level with top-quality audio-visual equipment and innovative wiring techniques.

What the client needed

Before we start any project, we consult with the client to ensure we have a solid understanding of their needs, desires, and limitations. From there, our team can devise a fully personalised plan that delivers on look and functionality – all within the client’s budget.

The student accommodation provider wanted to give their residents somewhere to relax and socialise. After all, attending lectures and tutorials all day, studying for exams, and writing essays can be exhausting.

They decided that an outdoor cinema was the perfect solution – and we couldn’t agree more. The outdoor space needed to be comfortable, attractive, functional, and weatherproof.

Once we had all the information we needed, we were in business.

Transforming the outdoor space

We used a range of top-quality tech to transform the outdoor space into a movie-watching paradise. We ran all cabling along the external walls and the ceiling.
The fit-out included the following components:

  • Panasonic PT-MZ570 laser projector
  • Custom plastic fabricated box with cooling fans to the house projector
  • Yamaha RXA1080 amplifier
  • BluStream Hex100 Balun kit
  • Jamo 6” wall-mounted weatherproof speakers
  • Google Chromecast
  • RTI XP6 processor
  • RTI KX3 wall controller

The laser projector was positioned so that the image appeared directly on a blank wall. Because of this, there was no need to install a separate fixed screen.
The wall-mounted speakers were strategically positioned to ensure audio clarity throughout the outdoor space. No matter where the students sit, they won’t miss a single line of the movie.
We installed and setup Google Chromecast, too, making it quick and easy to select and play the movie or TV show.
