Most people consider entertainment centers as an interestingly useful piece of furniture for many reasons: it provides a stylish point of attraction in the sitting room; offers you the option of housing your TV, organizes your audio/video equipment piece in a single space, and also helps to sustain the decorative flow of the room by reducing clutter. If you're looking for an entertainment center for TVs up to 55″, browse through the wide selection of entertainment centers below.
With most centers being adjustable, it is important that you already knew your TV dimensions, so it will be easy for you to get the right size of the entertainment center.
Measure Your Sitting Room
Measure the area where you intend to have your center fixed to. You could be looking for an expansive, huge wall unit, but may only have a room big enough for a regular-sized TV stand.
Think of what will be stored in the entertainment center. From DVD players, game console to TV streaming units, you would be surprised at the number of electronic items that can be stored inside.
Picking Your Storage
Shelves and cabinets, open or closed, little or lots, these are factors you should take into consideration when deciding how you would store your accessories and equipment. Some entertainment center units come with shelves and cabinets combined, for allowing you to display beautiful items as you conceal your DVDs as well as other media. The open cabinets lack sides, giving you the impression of more space, although they are not good for hiding stuff, which means you may need to look for other storage options to hide less attractive items.
Decide on Your Features
Also available are entertainment centers that have cabinet doors made of glass. Your remote would still work even if the doors are closed. Speaker grills make it possible for sound to travel passed through closed cabinet doors. And simple hook up systems will ensure that you do not struggle whenever you have to install a piece of new equipment in your center. There is a cord management system that makes it possible to arrange the cords easily and at the same time have your electronics well-protected from power surges with incorporated surge protectors.
Having narrowed your choices down, you can begin to consider the various centers as well as their style. You may have a thing or two for the contemporary look that comes with an open-shelved TV stand, only to discover that your electronics have exceeded the space provided, forcing you to get a bigger corner or wall center. The large wall unit is suitable for large living rooms, but for bedrooms, there will be a bit of hindrance when it comes to mobility. Be patient and look around, and you should find a center that fits your preferences and style.
