Phoenix Home & Garden magazine sat down with owner Brandon Luna to learn why you should choose a Thunderbird Wall to complete your home.

1. Blend form and function with custom component cabinets

The top priority of Thunderbird Custom Design is making sure electronic devices such as your television, speakers, and video game consoles are tastefully stored and woven into the design of your choice. The company’s professionals have an eye for making sure bulky wires and electronic equipment are not the focal point of your space. Choose from various types of wood, finishes, sizes and many other modifications to create the custom cabinets of your dreams. Their designers are able to accommodate cabinets in any dimension to fit any space in your home. Additionally, they offer full-service electronic audio and video sales.

2. Embellish with custom floor to ceiling lighting

Custom lighting adds a bit of ambiance and charm to your space and also highlights your decorative pieces. Opt for soft lighting that provides enough light to see when necessary, but not so much that it detracts from your Saturday-night movie or conversation over drinks. Thunderbird Custom Design offers decorative recessed LED lighting and strip lights for whatever your needs may be.

3. Add texture with natural stone, wood or tile accents

Opt for a stacked stone or sleek wood and tile accents for an elegant and luxurious addition to your space. Implementing a wide range of natural hues can create either a soft, organic, or more polished style. Whichever suits your needs – know how impactful an accent wall can be.

4. Create dimension with Wood Beams or Shelves

Select your preferred type of softwood or hardwood such as pine, oak, ash, or beech, although the company’s standard wood species is Alder. Mix and match different natural colors and play with sizes to achieve your desired look. Solid live edge shelves such as walnut and juniper are also an option for a rustic look. Floating wood beams and shelves are a popular choice with our clients.

5. Warm up with a gas or electric fireplace

Yes, even in Arizona! On those chilly winter nights, a gas or electric fireplace or firebox incorporated with your Thunderbird Wall creates an optimal cozy atmosphere. Gas fireplaces require a vent, while electric fireplaces are do not and can easily be placed anywhere within your wall.

6. Achieve ultimate versatility using drywall

Using drywall, a common construction material, allows the team at Thunderbird Custom Design to dream up unlimited design possibilities for their clients. The team creates custom interior walls that are incredibly easy to install, durable and easy to repair if needed.

7. Custom design allows you to work with any space

Customization allows you to be creative with any size space. From large to small, awkward to simple, the only limitation is your imagination. When you decide to customize, you are able to turn any area into the focal point of the room with a Thunderbird Wall.
