Television Nooks the New Trend?

Last year it was mounting flat screen's above fireplaces, this year the trend in media room design looks to be installing TVs into small nooks in the wall. The above, found on Apartment Therapy, is the second instance in the last week we've found of people building walls so as to accommodate televisions.

I personally like it, but it leads to a few questions regarding upgrading. If you build a nook for a specific size and then down the line decide you want to go larger, what do you do? Do you rebuild the wall to accommodate the new size? Or do you scrap the whole nook idea all together?

Is the nook design worth the commitment?
