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.

Many of the new prefabricated metal fireboxes don't even require a chimney. Only if the fireplace is meant to be wood burning is there a need to vent smoke up and out. If it's solely a gas-burning fireplace a direct vent (directly outside behind the fireplace) or a no-vent solution works just fine.

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.

While it may not seem practical to place items in front of the TV to block it (after all it is meant to be seen at least some of the time) keep in mind that the TV doesn’t necessarily need to be hidden from all angles. A chair placed between you and the TV will hide it (at least partially) when people are traversing the hallways and passing by so the screen is at least hidden when you aren’t plopped down on the sofa. Note that pushing a TV into the back of a deep bookshelf will similarly minimize it from many angles making this technique doubly effective.
