Whether it’s sitting back to be wowed by the latest blockbuster or losing yourself in a new game, home entertainment plays an important role in our lives. Large flat screen TVs are now common in most homes and as technology advances, we find ourselves accumulating more and more electronic devices. However, with these gadgets and gizmos come storage issues. How do you keep all of these items together and accessible without them taking over the look and feel of a room?
The answer is by finding the right TV Cabinet and Entertainment unit for you. It’s important to have a piece of furniture that is both functional and attractive. Whether you have your own dedicated entertainment room or keep your TV in your living room, it’s still a tricky process finding furniture that works for you. There’s no point having the latest plasma TV without sleek and stylish furniture to match. Our guide takes you through all of the considerations from the practical to the stylistic to help you find the best TV cabinet or entertainment unit for you.
When it comes to TV cabinets and entertainment units, there are so many options to consider. Finding the right piece depends on exactly what you want the furniture to do and the look you want to achieve.
TV cabinets and entertainment units are available in wood, glass, plastic and metal as well as a combination of these materials. Due to the size of many units, wood is a popular choice working well within many interiors. They can also come in various colours and finishes to match your décor.
TV cabinets and entertainment units are often rectangular or square but are also available in triangular and oval shapes. The dimensions of your room and the layout you desire will impact the shape you go for. A large number of TV cabinets and entertainment units are made to suit corner spaces, making them ideal if this is where you plan to place your television.
The main decision you will need to make when it comes to your TV cabinet is whether you go for an open or closed design. With an open design all of your electronic items are on show and easily accessible. Open TV stands also referred to as platform TV cabinets often have cable holes to keep cables and power units concealed but it is worth checking before buying to be sure.
Closed designs on the other hand tend to be tidier and neater in appearance. Closed entertainment units use drawers, cupboards and shelves to keep your DVD player, satellite box, games console and remotes hidden away. If you wish to hide your television and allow other features to be the focus of the room then you may want to opt for a TV cabinet with cupboard doors or sliding doors. TV armoires are a popular closed design. Closed units are also good for young families, keeping expensive electronics out of the way of babies and toddlers.
TV cabinets and entertainment units are available with various types and amounts of storage including open plan shelves, cupboard space and drawers. Entertainment units are much larger pieces of furniture and often come with a variety of types of storage whereas TV cabinets tend to be simpler providing one or two forms of storage.
What storage you opt for will depend on what it is you need to store, so it’s worth taking the time to complete an inventory before beginning your search. Even if you opt to mount your TV on a wall bracket you will still want to consider convenient storage for the related items.
When shopping for a new TV cabinet or entertainment unit there are a number of considerations. It’s worth taking some time out to work out exactly what you need before starting your search.
The first thing you need to decide is exactly what you want the furniture to do – will it be an entertainment hub bringing together all of your electronic equipment in one place or will it be a simple and elegant item to accommodate your TV?
When you know how much electronic equipment you need to house, you are in a better position to pick the right furniture item.
It may be the case that all you need is an attractive but basic TV cabinet that your television can sit on and with space below for a set-top box and a DVD player. If this is the case, then you may just require a couple of shelves and a drawer.
On the other hand, if you have lots of items such as set-top boxes, games consoles, hi-fi equipment, DVDs and blu-rays to store, then an entertainment unit provides you with more storage options as well as housing your TV. It also has the potential to have a big impact on a room, giving you the opportunity to make a real statement. With entertainment units, you often have the option to combine drawers, shelves and cabinets in one piece of functional and attractive furniture. Depending on what you want to store, there will be a suitable option out there.
Where you place your TV cabinet or entertainment unit will have a significant impact on the layout and feel of the entire room. TVs and entertainment units can end up being the focal point of a room. For some, this is the desired outcome but others may want their room to have an alternative focus.
If you have a smaller room, you may wish to consider a corner TV cabinet as this frees up space elsewhere. It can also make the space feel cosy and contribute to an immersive viewing experience. Corner TV cabinets are also a good option if you have an awkwardly shaped room.
With larger rooms, you may wish to consider dividing it into different zones by using furniture. By doing this, you can have a dedicated entertainment zone which houses your TV cabinet or entertainment unit.
This is a very common question and both options have their benefits. Some people find touching and feeling a TV Cabinet or Entertainment Unit in store very useful, however you will probably find more choice and a better deal in terms of pricing online. Make sure that wherever you purchase it from accepts refunds and offers a delivery service if required.
With some form of entertainment hub a common feature in lounges and living rooms, it is important that they are incorporated into the overall appearance of the room to achieve a sense of stylistic cohesion. TV cabinets and entertainment units are available in a range of styles to suit your individual taste and personality as well as match your practical needs.
The biggest stylistic consideration is how to display your TV in a way that balances the furniture and the technology. If you wish to embrace the technology and push forward with a contemporary look then you may wish to consider opting for the stylish Studio Entertainment Unit. However, if you want a more traditional or rustic look to your living room there are many classic pieces of furniture that will blend in effortlessly such as the Sophia Entertainment Unit. With a wide range of furniture options from Oak Furniture Solutions, you are able to match your TV and entertainment unit to other pieces in your room. For an upcycled statement piece, try our Manhattan Loft range or Driftwood Reclaimed. The contrast between technology and classic wood grain is very effective.
TV cabinets and entertainment units are available in many different wood varieties with a tone to match the mood of your room. The dark grains of walnut provide a sophisticated feel where as oak looks both traditional and classically elegant. You may want to opt for a more modern furniture piece, which combines various materials for a contemporary feel.
In order to help blend your TV in with the general décor of your living room, you can display artwork and picture frames to draw the eye away from the TV screen. Bright colours also help to distract from the screen. With entertainment units you can utilise the shelving elements to store ornaments, books and plants to lessen the impact of the technology on show.
There are number of points to bear in mind when measuring up for a TV Cabinet or entertainment unit. You will need to take into account the size and layout of the room, the dimensions of your television and other electronic equipment as well as where you need to position and angle the television itself.
It makes sense to begin by drawing a scale plan of the room on squared paper so you know where your entertainment unit will fit. You can then experiment with the layout as much as you like until you are happy. Once you have decided on where you want to locate the unit, you should measure so you know how much space you have in terms of depth, width and height.
In terms of room layout, you will need to work out the optimal distance between your sofa and the TV. Start by measuring the diagonal dimensions of your TV screen. Your sofa should be between 1.5 and 3 times this distance away. For example, if you have a 40″ screen, the sofa should be between five and seven feet away.
When you measure the dimensions of the TV cabinet make sure that the depth and width fit comfortably within your available space. When it comes to height you have to consider both the available space and the positioning of the television itself. You will need to determine how high you want the TV to sit on the cabinet or in the unit – most people want the TV to be at eye level or angled above them when sitting down.
It is important to remember that you may need more space to accommodate the width of the TV especially if it to be positioned at an angle as well as space for any wiring, plugs and power units. Make sure your furniture allows for this. Height is also important when you are considering a larger entertainment unit as these are available to reach the ceiling.
Make a note of the dimensions of the electronic devices you plan to house in your furniture – this includes any gaming console, set top box, DVD/Blu-Ray player as well as the TV itself, taking into account the full size of the TV and not just the screen. You may find it easier to find this information online before you start shopping. With entertainment units where the TV is to be housed within the furniture, you must ensure that there is enough space to accommodate the width of the TV set and any wires.
By following a few simple pointers, you can ensure that your TV Cabinet or Entertainment Unit lasts for many years.
With heavy items like televisions and set-top boxes, it is important to move them every now and again to ensure the colouration of the furniture matures evenly and uniformly
Dust can be damaging to your electronic devices so be sure to dust regularly but with a spray that is designed for wood
Make sure that any electronic devices have protective feet to avoid scratching your furniture
Place too close to radiators or other sources of heat
