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.
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.
For small spaces, the Link entertainment center is exactly right. The unit was designed by Paolo Cattelan and has adjustable width. The frame can either be white or graphite and the walnut drawer unit will always add a nice contrast to the design. Despite the compact design and small dimensions, the unit is surprisingly roomy in terms of storage.
