When we started DAGR Design in 1998 one of the core principles of our mission was to “…build turnkey home entertainment centers with innovative designs that truly fit each client’s individual needs…”.
We believed from the beginning that, in order to remain true to our mission — creating original, custom media wall designs specific to the space, design vision, and lifestyle of each individual homeowner was the only way to run our business.
Happily, our clients agreed — and they have made DAGR Design the preeminent custom media wall and entertainment center design/build firm in the valley.
So what exactly are the advantages to custom media wall design?
In-Home Design Consultations Are Our Commitment To Exceeding Your Expectations.
We believe strongly in working with you — in your home — to discuss more than a simple review of room dimensions. Our design consultants are trained, and have the experience, to provide expert guidance and answer every question — they also ask the right questions — to ensure a design that fits your home and your lifestyle.
You want a showpiece that provides both enjoyment and function. That level of “personalization” isn’t something you can achieve with a stock design.
If you’re like most DAGR clients, you probably aren’t looking for a simple TV placement and a few shelves. You’re looking for a design that meets your particular needs, something that fits “you” and becomes functional, valuable art. You want a showpiece that provides both enjoyment and function. That level of “personalization” isn’t something you can achieve with a stock design.
Custom Media Wall Design Is An Investment That Adds Real Value to Your Home and Meaningful Value to Your Life.
Our media wall designs are truly custom-fit to the space they occupy, and the specific needs of each client. So, while an existing “off-the-shelf” design often feels awkward or out-of-place, and may also simply be a series of compromises to “just make it fit”, our custom design process considers the “complete project” — the style and finishes of your home, the proportions and volume of the room, your lifestyle, and your specific use.
The result is a custom media wall that just “feels right” even to a first time visitor (or potential home buyer) — it fits the space, enhances your enjoyment, and adds real value to your home. It’s one of the best investments you can make in a home.
Many of our clients report that a new DAGR Design media wall not only becomes a focal point for family and visitors to their homes, it can also help tremendously with the sale of a home.
You Don’t Have To “Guess” What Your Media Wall Will Look Like In YOUR Space.
Our 3D design process involves actually placing your media wall design into your space. We even take furniture, accessories, colors, and finishes into account*.
A simple, two-dimensional line drawing simply can’t portray a complex design in a way that’s easily understandable. This is where misinterpretations can easily creep into the design process.
But a 3D rendering — in your space — is as close to “true-to-life” as currently possible.*
There is simply no more guessing — “How that display niche may look with my art piece” or “How the west window might affect the television screen”. These questions are answered right in front of your eyes with state-of-the-art 3D realism.
We Aren’t Done Until You’re Completely Happy With Your Design. Really.
Many clients come to us after disappointing experiences. They started a custom project, looked forward to seeing the design for the first time, only to discover it was nothing like what they had anticipated.
For us, most of these disappointments can be overcome by the initial in-home design consultation and the rest — by experience.
Our goal is to exceed your vision, not attempt to rework a stock design into something that only approximates your desires.
3D design is a highly complex process that takes years to master. We have a team of designers who come to each project with a deep understanding of the 3D design process, the unique requirements of A/V equipment within a design, and their own perspectives on creating custom solutions that actually work in the real world.
Our design process takes your vision, your input, and your specific needs into account as primary importance. Our goal is to exceed your vision, not attempt to rework a stock design into something that only approximates your desires. That is an important difference and advantage to the custom design process.
Our team approach insures that your design will continue to be polished until it is exactly what you envisioned — not a compromise between you and an individual designer or some stock solution.
And, since design is included in your project fee, any apprehension or sense of risk on your part is removed from the process and replaced with confidence and peace of mind that your project will look just as you and your designer envision it.

Custom Doesn’t Automatically Mean Expensive. It Can Actually SAVE You Money.
When you consider the potential anxiety and expense of “fixing” a cookie-cutter design gone wrong, or the time invested in coordinating subcontractors like electricians, stone masons, and other crafts people, a turnkey custom design becomes a much more valuable option.
Your time has value, and life is already complicated enough without extra headaches.
Equally important — coordinating the many aspects and trades people involved in all the facets of even a simple media wall design can be daunting, confusing, and fraught with the potential for hidden costs, and surprises of every type. Your time has value, and life is already complicated enough without extra headaches. For this very reason, our approach has always been turnkey.
Your time and energy are invested up front in the design process — “getting it right” and producing a project that you love. The installation then becomes simply “process” with DAGR doing all the coordination and craftsmanship to insure completion, on time, to your exact vision. Taking the anxiety and potential for “contractor disaster” out of the equation is one of the many reasons we have a robust repeat client business.

Elements like colors, patterns, finishes, textures, and other details may not be 100% accurate due to limitations in computer displays, color fidelity, and rendering technology. Options implied or discussed such as paint colors, finishes, metal, stone etc are NOT included in the contract unless written and priced accordingly on the final cost sheet for approval.
