Whether a TV is placed in the center of a wall or not it will still be a large punch of black in your color scheme. You can try to ignore it (which won’t make it go away) or you can embrace it adding black in other items to help balance out the look.
Choose 7.1 surround sound. The latest in surround-sound technology requires eight separate audio channels to truly immerse viewers in the film. But it can be difficult to decide whether you should try to disguise the speakers or make them a feature of the room. Plenty of speaker manufacturers make devices that both sound good and look beautiful. Wood paneling offers a great combination of acoustics and aesthetics. Remember to check the wiring options when looking to make a purchase — no matter how good the speakers look a tangle of cables is always a turn-off.
These days the task of protecting your precious DVDs or CDs does not lie in your hands alone anymore. There are plenty of stylish and wonderful media storage that would help you keep your data safe and sound. Surely you would be absolutely horrified to see your DVDs or CDs scratched and damaged beyond use after pulling it out of your little storage box. Proper media storage cabinets would ensure this nightmare would never happen in you at all.
Again asymmetry can be your friend here as placing the TV off to one side in a wide bookcase or pair of cases will keep it from feeling like the visual focal point. Depending on the furniture arrangement this can also leave a TV well-positioned to be watched from a sectional sofa or favorite chair even if it’s off-center from some of the other seats.
It's tempting to try to repurpose a piece of vintage furniture or use a shelving unit buffet or console table as a media cabinet but there is a big difference between a standard cabinet and a media console.
Media armoires worked great back in the day of analog TVs. Close the doors to hide the electronics and open them to watch. Those were simpler times. But today flat-panel TVs are put on display more often than not. Mounting on walls or being set on top of consoles can actually complicate matters since remote controls typically use infrared signals to communicate with the devices. The little red light needs to be pointed directly at the component to change the channel turn up the audio or pause the movie. A solid surface blocks this communication.
