Listen Up: Consider AV Equipment
Electronics need ventilation. You may also have components or cords you wish to hide. Built in entertainment centers are designed to be both functional and beautiful.
You can customize shelving to fit any size of TV or other equipment. Doors can also be added to hide clutter and protect contents from being damaged when they are not in use.
Proper ventilation is important for TVs. To prevent them from getting too hot, place them on shelves spaced a few inches apart. Vents may be necessary if you intend to store electronic items in cabinets.
Home Theater Experience
At least five speakers are required to create the surround sound effect you desire. Depending on the size of the room and how many speakers you have, two or three can be placed in the entertainment center. You can hide speakers behind a screen of fabric or integrate them into your home’s decor.
Display Books and Photos
Open shelving has been the best way to display books and photos. You can stack books in groups and then display your collectibles among them. This will create visual interest. You can store magazines in baskets on the lower shelves. Board games can be stored in the bottom cabinets.
Collectibles and Display Artwork
