So, whether you’re a movie buff, a gamer, or just someone who loves to unwind in front of the TV, investing in a built-in entertainment center is the smart choice. It’s a decision that will transform your space, elevate your entertainment experience, and ultimately, enrich your life. So, why wait? Let’s dive into the world of built-in entertainment centers and discover the endless possibilities they offer.

Why Looks Matter With Entertainment Units

Although entertainment units are functional, their appearance is important. The majority of entertainment units will be found in high-traffic areas of your home. They are most popular in the living room, great rooms, or family room.

The size of your home entertainment system will determine the location of an entertainment unit. It is important to consider the appearance of entertainment units.

A custom-built unit for your home is the best option if you are looking for a better look. Although custom-built entertainment units are more expensive, they are definitely worth the investment.

7 Reasons to Invest in a Built In Entertainment Center

From maximizing space and reducing clutter to increasing the value of your property, we’ll show you why a built-in entertainment center is more than just a stylish addition to your living room.

1. More Design Options and Finishes With Custom Entertainment Units

You’ll be disappointed by the limited selection of finishes and designs available when you shop for entertainment units in big-box stores. These entertainment units, which are mass-produced and off-the-shelf, were designed to appeal to as many people as possible. This philosophy has a problem: everyone is different.

This means that big-box store furniture purchases often come with some level of regret, disappointment, and the feeling that you had to settle. You might have to compromise on some elements of an entertainment unit like its finish, configuration, or size.

The flaws of large-box store entertainment units are more obvious when you compare what a custom entertainment system offers. Instead of having to choose from three or four finishes, custom entertainment units allow you to create hundreds of different looks with your cabinetry.

Modern technology makes it possible to customize custom cabinetry to your specific design preferences. There are many options for laminate and melamine finishes that will replicate the look of wood. You’ll love the variety of solid colors available if you prefer a modern look.

2. More Options When You Order Custom-Built Entertainment Units

You are limited in your options for entertainment unit sizes due to the one-size-fits-all nature of furniture stock at retail outlets. Everybody has different requirements for the size of their entertainment unit, just like how it looks.

A few factors will determine the size of your entertainment system:

  • The number and size of audio/video components that you will need to fit into it
  • The size of your TV
  • How much space do you need to store media (such as Blu-rays) or personal items such as pictures?
  • If you want to make a room centerpiece with additional features such as a bar or electric fireplace

Custom cabinetry has the advantage of being custom-made to fit your space and can be made to meet your specific needs. You have the option to make your own entertainment units, whether you are looking for a small corner unit or a large, wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-ceiling display piece in your living room.

To accommodate all electronic equipment, and any other items being stored, a custom-built entertainment unit can be made. You won’t waste space if your TV is in a too-large enclosure.

Our team at The French Refinery manufactures all custom cabinets on-site. This ensures high-quality control. You won’t have to worry about transporting your entertainment unit home or spending hours assembling it. The professional installers will ensure that your new entertainment system fits perfectly in your home.

3. Add Extra Appealing Features

It will be difficult to find an entertainment unit that includes a fireplace or bar in a big-box store. These great features can be added to custom entertainment units.

Your custom cabinets will look even more dynamic if you add an electric fireplace to your entertainment unit. Electric heating offers many other benefits.

You could add an electric fireplace to your entertainment system instead of or in addition to one. These types of accessories not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of entertainment units but also save space and add functionality.

Also, you can customize the entertainment unit to include additional features. You can include LED interior lighting in strategically placed areas, as well as various styles of metal grill doors, panels, and glass. The decorative hardware can be customized.

4. Custom Entertainment Units Will Last Longer

You won’t get a long-lasting life from DIY furniture. Poor construction materials combined with sub-par workmanship will lead to sagging shelves, peeling finishes, and a long life span that is difficult to maintain.

You will be able to save money by investing in custom furniture and cabinetry. Custom entertainment units will last longer because they are made of better wood and have durable finishes.

A higher quality cabinetry can also be easily moved if needed. If you have to move, fragile self-assembled furniture won’t break down or transport well. In such situations, sturdy cabinetry will be stronger.

Although handcrafted solid wood furniture made from cherry hardwood and oak looks beautiful, there are some drawbacks. The high price is one of the drawbacks. Wood can crack or warp in areas with low moisture levels, which can cause wood to expand and contract.

5. Enhance and Complement Your Home’s Decor

Entertainment units go beyond stereo cabinets and TV stands. A custom-made entertainment unit can be a unique upgrade for your home decor due to the care that is taken in designing and manufacturing it.

An entertainment unit is often the focal point of a room and should match your existing decor. It is important to match the colors and styles of your walls and furniture in order to maintain a warm and inviting space that will be used often by the whole family.

Custom entertainment units offer a lot of design flexibility, making it much easier to achieve this goal. Contrarily, cabinetry from big-box stores can be a detriment to your home’s decor due to the limited choices they offer. They may not be well-suited for their surroundings in terms of color, style, or size.

6. Keep Everything Organized

Entertainment units can keep your space organized. They provide a place for everything and eliminate clutter.

You can hide remotes, gaming accessories, extra cables, and other clutter in your room by hiding them behind doors, overhead compartments, or drawers.

Store your Blu-rays, DVDs, and other media behind doors or on open shelves. You can also personalize your entertainment area by using open shelving to display photos and other personal effects.

A well-designed entertainment unit will conceal all cables and wires connected to electronic components. If a mess of wires and cables is visible, even the most expensive entertainment unit will not look as stylish.

7. Enjoy a Better Viewing Experience Overall

Cabinetry designed specifically to hold everything you need for your viewing time of TV and movies will enhance your overall viewing experience.

A media center setup in your living, family, or basement will allow you to enjoy your viewing from a clean, clutter-free area that looks great.

This space will be ideal for entertaining guests and displaying your personality.
