In certain cases, a small room doesn "t necessarily need a small entertainment center. A symmetrical design can establish a sense of order in the room. In this case, the TV is framed by the geometric unit which looks quite compact but is in fact very roomy. Concentrating all the storage furniture on one wall leaves the rest of the room free for seating and other things.
To maintain an open and airy decor, choose a unit that matches the wall. A white unit placed against a white wall would make the room look quite big which is really useful when you have a small floor plan. In addition, the open shelves have a similar effect in a lot of cases so combine these strategies for best results.
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.
