While I like the clean look of my basic television console, I have been itching for something a little larger on which to display books and family photos. But I do not want to end up with a big, heavy wall unit reminiscent of what my parents had in the 1990s. That is why I love these entertainment centers that provide extra space for display and storage while maintaining a clean look.
Create a freestanding, large entertainment center by creating two stacks of cabinets the same height on either side of one wider cabinet which serves as the base or focal point for the center. Use a countertop to span the entire unit for the main shelf, or use a glass desktop or reclaimed door in place of the countertop. Connect cabinets to one another by drilling holes through one into the next, securing with bolts and nuts. This way, you can disassemble them easily later on. Drill holes in the backs and bottoms of cabinets to allow for cables and wiring. Add a power strip inside one of the cabinets for tidy cords.
It fits most TVs measuring 32 to 65 inches (the stand/mount combo is actually 16.5 x 27.5 x 50.8 inches). The smart design also adds two shelves with a unique ability to swivel, so your TV can be directed up to 15 degrees in all directions by pivoting the mounting section.
