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.
To maintain an open and airy decor, choose a unit that matches the wall. A white unit placed against a white wall would make the room look quite big which is really useful when you have a small floor plan. In addition, the open shelves have a similar effect in a lot of cases so combine these strategies for best results.
Entertainment centers such as this one fill an entire wall and have a back panel that connects all the pieces. It "s a good opportunity in such cases to play with various combinations of colors. The dark vs light contrast is widely emphasized in a lot of designs.
