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.
It makes your home look better- It doesn't matter if you live in a multi-million dollar mansion the simple addition of a media storage cabinet will add that special digital media spice that is sure to enliven the design of your living space. With lots of popular styles and even exclusively designed and constructed media storage cabinet solutions to choose from you can always find the perfect cabinet for your tastes.
Home theater technology has never been better — today you can even exceed the audiovisual quality of your local cinema. Whether you want to host the perfect film night entertain after a dinner party or simply keep the kids quiet for a few hours on a rainy afternoon there’s a home theater solution out there to suit your needs.
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.
To take a less hypermodern approach place a TV in a full bookshelf system (rather than free-floating minimalist shelves) to create a more transitional look. Encasing the TV in custom framing helps it blend even further into the casework so only the essential screen is visible (and not shiny brand names). Keep in mind that a frame will block the remote receiver so you may need a device to reroute the signal from a receiver tucked on a nearby shelf.
Don’t forget that we see rooms in 3D and not just as a series of separate walls. Sometimes the best way to balance out a TV is by putting something with a similar visual weight on the opposite side of the room like this dark bookshelf.
