A broad selection of ottomans ensures that there is a piece to suit any taste and any decor. For warm and cozy rooms consider ottomans with bases constructed in rich colors and textured fabrics. Ottomans with legs are a good choice for more formal decorating styles as well as when a lighter look is needed. Often ottomans are chosen to match existing seating but you may want to consider purchasing a distinctive ottoman instead. Ottomans can be used to add decorative interest to a room though a pop of color contrasting texture or a unique shape. While ottomans are primarily intended as a piece of furniture that allows us a chance to relax at the end of a busy or stressful day there's no reason why they can't be stylish too.

Media walls generally look best if they echo the architecture of the home. Cabinetmaker True studies the trim throughout the house and runs matching base and crown molding across the front of the built-in. He’s also fond of incorporating fluted pilasters and arches when appropriate to break up the unit’s rectilinear lines.

Modern media centers rather than full-height cabinets to enclose the TV often simply surround the TV with a wall of floating shelves to help visually distract from the screen while adding useful storage (which often would be filled with DVDs in the past but are more often just decorative in the age of streaming).

Keep the screen hidden too. It’s not only the projector that can be concealed but the screen itself. With a motorized projector lift some ceiling-integrated speakers and a drop-down projector screen the transition from living room to home cinema can be as smooth as it is impressive. The space freed up while the screen isn’t in use can be used to display artwork or any other more aesthetically pleasing pieces.

Gallery walls are an enduring trend so why not take advantage of this style and hide your TV in plain sight among a crowd of paintings or framed photos? Use artwork with black frames and even consider mixing in some other items (such as plaques or busts) to create a full-on mixed-media installation.
