If you prefer a sleek, minimalistic look rather than a giant wall unit-style entertainment center, start with one matching kitchen cabinet on either side, with a large glass desktop spanning them. Fill indented cabinet tops beneath the glass with painted wood, handmade art, photographs or entertainment-related memorabilia. Cabinets may be left in wood finish or painted to match the room's decor. Add glass paneled doors if you had like doors on the unit, or leave the cabinets open for instant access to the shelves within.
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.
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.
