Your entertainment center is your chance to turn the chroame and flash of modern electronics, into an elegant or stylish decorative piece.
For the most part, your TV doesnt match anything. This means you can choose to live with it, live without it, or integrate it into the overall decorative strategy of the room.
The easiest way to deal with your media is to simply hide it away. There are a variety of tv stands and tv armoirs which have doors on them, allowing you to close the electronic world away behind an attractive design. These stands come in a variety of colors and finishes, ranging from traditional oak and wood stained, to more modern glass and steal products.
Media stands which hide your electronics behind glass doors, don’t completely remove their presence from a space. They do however create a subtle division between your media and your home, which allows you to create psychological distance. This distance means that your tv doesnt have to be the focal point of the space, allowing you to change the purpose and feel of the room.
The simplest tv stands will hold your media and dispay it. They do not hide it or cover it up in any way.
These stands are generally the least expensive. The type you choose will not generally matter that much to the overall space, as the tv and other electronics you place on it will be the focus of attention.
The only real design considerations you have to take into account are matching the color of the stand to the rest of the room, and selecting a style which does not clash with your own.
