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.
The Kings Brand Stand might look like a designer splurge, but the price tag is anything but, allowing for elegance at any budget. Despite being compact, it is able to accommodate media, gaming systems, and other decor without looking disordered. Assembly is simple and quick. As this stand measures 38 x 18 x 24 inches, it is a good fit for small spaces, but might not be the best option for those with larger entertainment systems or room to fill as it can only comfortably fit TVs up to 42 inches. The unique design is also not as accommodating when it comes to hiding wires.
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.
