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.
The stand can be constructed in different configurations to complement more traditional or modern decor and can be scaled to fit smaller spaces. The customization options also boast reasonable storage space for media consoles, DVDs, books, or decorations.
A living room is usually not complete without an entertainment unit. This is the central piece that brings everything together and makes the living room what it is. It's such a common piece of furniture because it basically includes everything that room needs in only one unit. It has a TV stand, plenty of storage space and display areas. This particular one makes no exception.
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.
