Nowadays, entertainment centres or units are not just for displaying the television and the speakers. Depending on the design you can also store or display a number of other objects on them. Given below are seven types of modern entertainment furniture that display more than just the television:
TV Stands with Hutches
Entertainment stands with built in hutches are one of the best choices if you want to display objects other than your TV. The size of the hutches varies with each unit and can be chosen accordingly. These spaces can be used to store and display a variety of objects such as books, family photos, speakers or movie DVDs.
Entertainment Wall Units
These are large pieces of furniture in which the place that holds the TV is only a part. The size of these wall units depends on the space available to you. They have various shelves and small cupboards as well as hutches to display a number of objects. These units rise like a wall around the TV, thus getting their name.
Entertainment Centres with Home Theatre
This type of entertainment units has large shelves and drawers to store things like movie DVDs, speakers, and several other media components. These are usually large and not ideal for crammed spaces.
For those you are looking for a media unit that can hide media components like speakers, DVD player or remote controls as well as wires when not in use, TV armoires will be the right choice. These usually have shelves with sliding doors that can hide the objects and give the place an organized look.
Entertainment Unit plus Fireplace
Here, the name itself is quite self-explanatory. The fireplace is incorporated into the media unit, and there is enough space to display objects that would usually be displayed over a mantelpiece. The fireplace is an electronic one and gives an inviting look to the place.
Units for Flat Screen
If you have a flat screen TV, there are many options to choose from. These can be displayed on the wall with the entertainment centre surrounding the TV, or it can be fitted with a wall unit. Fireplace entertainment structures include space for a flat screen.
Entertainment Units with TV Stands
These are one of the simpler entertainment furniture. There are some complex designs available too, but usually, TV stands are exactly what the name suggests. There might be shelves and drawers below to store some media components.
When ordering entertainment units for your home, there are a number of options that can be chosen. However, you must make a choice only after considering the following factors:
- Firstly, the size of the unit is one of the most important things that have to be decided. This will primarily depend on two things: the objects that you want to display on it and the amount of space available in your home.
- Secondly, the design of the unit will depend on your personal taste as well as the design of the room. For example, a sleek structure will look better in a minimalist room while a rustic looking wooden unit will sit better in a room which has a cosy, oriental décor.
- Lastly, think about if you want to store the items in closed cupboards or display them on open shelves where they will be seen by your guests. The design of the entertainment unit will be chosen according to this.
The seven types of entertainment units given above are some of the best and the most popular options available to you. By considering the tips mentioned above, you will be able to pick the best unit to display the TV and much more!
