Took some pictures of some mod's today. I installed some led's in the kitchen overhead, the wires were very thin but there is a small gap along the top where the vinyl abuts the cabinet. I was able to wedge the thin wire all along the inside top. These lights are battery operated Amazon.com - Rtgs Micro LED 20 Warm White Color Lights Battery Operated on 7ft Long Silver Color Ultra Thin String Wire - Starry String Lights
I also installed a red model inside the "cubby" holes. These are individual plastic covers that yu will need to remove 2 or 3 screws holding them in place. Do not remove them all or you will not be able to line up holes again.

I also found a small cabinet that will hold my small 8" tv I use next to the bed. It is free standing now, will attach to wall tomorrow.

If you had installed your bigger tv on the wardrobe wall, do you think the tv arm could be turned so that you can see it in the dinette?

Hmmm...decisions, decisions...we don't really want to add another cable access point, so we were thinking maybe putting it on the wardrobe....may have to think on this a bit more....

I'm having the cable access put at the dinette area. I'll use a DVD player for the bed area. Different strokes for different folks! BTW, I'm also getting two televisions.

We originally thought the dinette area and then we considered wardrobe area and flip it so you can see from the dinette location if you wanted to....the reverse would likely work too. Just gotta make a decision and go with it...ha!

We put by the wardrobe-building ours now! We pick up March 12th! Love the lights Jim!

Pretty excited. Got pictures already, but didn't post yet. Hoping our fabric and formica turn out like we want! We also got the u shaped dinette, so thanks for the measurements!
