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.
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.
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.
