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.
Each type of entertainment center or wall unit addresses to a particular type of space or ambiance. In this particular space, for example, a white lower cabinet was chosen in order to ensure a more spacious and airy feel. The wall-mounted pieces contrast with the white background and add a nice touch to the decor.
