Of all the built-ins you can add a media wall is one of the most useful.

Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!

Three’s company. Some may have difficulty combining two main design elements but this homeowner managed to do three. This asymmetrical layout mixes the size of all three pieces (television fireplace and artwork) comfortably into one design by maximizing the height and balancing the width of the wall. When adding artwork above the fireplace do your research before purchasing to make sure it can withstand the heat output.
