Link multiple screens. If you have multiple TV screens then it’s likely you’ll want to have access to the same channels content and films on each screen. Traditionally this required multiple (and messy) set-top boxes and complicated subscriptions but now centralized TV distribution offers a more elegant solution. It allows you to store all of your television sources and subscriptions in a separate A/V rack. The content can then be sent directly to any screen in your home in high definition.
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.
This works especially well if some of the pieces are as large or even larger than the TV. The unusual square piece in the upper left draws attention away from the TV and the other little pieces keep the eye moving around.
Adjustable shelves make room for a variety of components. While most pieces have the same depth they won't always be the same height. Using furniture with fixed shelves means running the risk of having a component not fit or needing to stack on on top of the other potentially limiting its use and risking overheating.
Designate a room. For those with the space to spare nothing beats having a separate cinema room in your own home. It’s a surefire way to make any film night you host unforgettable. Be warned though: Your guests will be so impressed you might have a hard time convincing them to leave!
You can also simply lean a few pieces against the wall on top of a TV unit which can be a great way to try out the look if you aren’t ready to commit yet. It carries a relaxed appeal that works with modern or traditional spaces — especially a casual cottage.
