If there is an alcove in which you are building the center, fill the space completely with cabinets to give it the look of built-ins. Arrange cabinets so there is ample space in the center for your TV. Remove cabinet doors so the cabinets look more like built-in structures. Fill the holes with putty. Use a thick slab of wood for the main shelf supporting the TV, or as support over the top of a short cabinet on which the TV rests. Paint the entire structure the same color as the walls in the room to give it that built in, been-there-for-years look.
Each type of entertainment center or wall unit addresses to a particular type of space or ambiance. In this particular space, for example, a white lower cabinet was chosen in order to ensure a more spacious and airy feel. The wall-mounted pieces contrast with the white background and add a nice touch to the decor.
This rustic entertainment center with industrial touches by FLO Design Studio uses a few tricks to keep it from weighing down the room. Pipe pieces act as feet to the unit, and the clearance between the cabinetry and the floor offer a lightness to the look. The open shelves appear to float against the wall, and the unit is made from light-toned reclaimed wood.
