From news to watching DVDs or streaming movies, there’s no doubt that the TV has become an integral part of modern life, and possibly the most important entertainment provider in your home. Once thought of as an eyesore, flat screen TVs are now the focal point in many contemporary living rooms. In addition, our TVs now have recipes, can answer phones, and stream videos and movies. Your console can both frame the television and anchor the room.

Make a Statement with Your Flat Screen TV

The days when TV units were small are long gone. A large flat screen is now considered essential for watching movies and sports, whether in the living room or a separate media room or home theater. So, you media wall unit needs to be able to accommodate a large TV as well as a DVD players, disks, and other accoutrements such as game console ports, remotes, and more.

A wall display unit that doubles as a media entertainment console is a stylish option for both making your TV the focal point of your room and keeping your media neat and organized. Generally, a large part of the media unit is reserved for the TV and its components, as in the Monterey Sands Camino Real Media Wall Unit by Lexington. Additional shelves for displaying objects, arranging books, and storing DVDs are arranged around the TV shelf.

Another option, especially in smaller rooms, is to place your TV on a TV stand or armoire. A medium height stand with adjustable shelves and drawers for media equipment, built-in power cables, will create a harmonious and casual atmosphere in your entertainment space. The Monterey Sands Spanish Bay Entertainment Console by Lexington features four drawers and three adjustable shelves to easily organize your media storage.

Finishing Touch: Comfortable Seating

In general, televisions come with adjustable rotating stands that allow you to angle the TV to suit the convenience of viewers. So, once you have your TV supported, comfortable seating is a must. In most living rooms, the TV will be opposite the sofa, allowing you and your family to lounge with ease. If necessary, you can arrange for accent chairs to serve as media chairs in smaller spaces or when overflow seating is needed.
