Create an Entertainment Center Perfect for Hosting!

Nov 01, 2018

Throughout the modern home, you’ll find attractive and functional built-in features. Our kitchens have built-in cabinetry, our books and mementos are displayed on built-in bookshelves, and even our closets are organized using custom built-ins. If your entertainment center is still a big, heavy, piece of furniture, or smaller pieces jumbled together, you’re missing the boat. An entertainment center can be a stylish focal point for a room, designed to suit your aesthetic sensibilities while meeting your storage and entertainment needs.  

  • A long, low cabinet can be a multi-purpose built-in.  The television and other electronic equipment can sit on top of it, while the cords and controllers are concealed inside. Build it long enough to also house cushions and items that would otherwise clutter the room, and if you’re hosting a gathering for several people, move the television and bring out the cushions, turning the cabinet into additional seating.  
  • Sometimes, an entertainment center needs to pull double-duty. Sure, you want to have all things television-related easily accessible, and perhaps a sound system installed in your entertainment center. But there are other things that need storing in your common spaces, and when you create a built-in entertainment center that works for you, it can house those items. Combine a shelf the right size and level for television viewing with other shelves that can hold books and knick-knacks, also installing cabinetry for clutter that you’d prefer to have hidden when guests arrive.  
  • Custom built-ins can enhance your décor. Whether your style is rustic or modern, sophisticated or cozy, you can commission an entertainment center that fits right in. Maybe it’s a sleek unit low on the wall, or maybe it’s a wall-sized unit, outfitted with cabinets, shelves, and drawers to house all the things you need. Choosing custom cabinetry makes it easy to work in the details that are important to you, in a style you find appealing.
