Optional seating. Whether it is styled in the form of a box or a chair on short legs an ottoman is upholstered and can be used as a seat. Perhaps not as comfortable as an armchair but sufficient as an emergency or alternative seating option in your home during parties or when a crowd of friends descend upon you. It can be stored away under a table and pulled out when needed - or rolled out if your ottoman is fitted with casters.

Cutouts in the rear of a media console do more than allow cords through. The openings also permit much-needed ventilation. Electronics get hot when in use and you'll want air to flow around them and vent outside the cabinet. This reduces the risk of fire and can lengthen the life of the components.

Sometimes the best way to deal with these two focal points is to separate them. This design makes great use of an angled wall while still making it easy to enjoy the fireplace and the TV at the same time. Connect your fireplace mantel visually to the main shelving. In a design like the one shown here you also could carry over all three shelves to create a triple mantel.

Separate. Separating the television and fireplace within the same space is difficult to get right but it’s done masterfully here. The wood paneling running up the wall and over the ceiling to surround the fireplace wall makes for a perfect integration — it almost feels as if they are on the same wall. Think carefully about your furniture plan when you have two focal points in a living room. What would you and your guests prefer to see — the fireplace or the television?

Put speakers in the ceiling. You can have an entire sound system completely hidden from view with ceiling-integrated speakers. This is an excellent way to have high-fidelity audio and free up space in your home to get creative with your design. When it’s time to watch a film speakers integrated into the ceiling make viewers feel as though they are right in the middle of the action — perfect for a nail-biting thriller or spellbinding fantasy flick.

Consider having your screen mounted on the wall instead of perched on top of a cabinet. This way the screen will be less obvious and the space can be used like a typical living room with the option of enjoying a superior home cinema experience when you have a film to watch.
