Of all the built-ins you can add a media wall is one of the most useful. It helps to tame the clutter that springs up around a TV and when paired with bookshelves provides ample opportunity to display mementos and books (reinforcing the notion that you do more than sit in front of the TV all day).While there are an infinite number of ways to arrange a media wall experts recommend dividing the unit into a base and an upper cabinet to help break up the unit’s mass and to accommodate varying depths of storage. The base can be fitted with drawers or doors to conceal electronics and accessories.

Let’s face it — media rooms can quickly become a mess of tangled cords and unsightly technology despite our best intentions. Streamline your space with media storage and accessories to hide electronics and organize necessities.

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.

A rectangular ottoman fits in well with an L-shape sectional. The longer width allows more people to use it. If you need storage choose one with a hollow center.

Brick fireplaces are the most popular to replace. Henry says a quick and easy solution is to simply wrap the brick in either tile or wood leaving the exposed brick for the firebox. “It’s a more updated look that’s one of the least expensive” she says. And that way the brick will remain beneath the new material in case a future home buyer prefers brick. You could also choose to drywall or plaster over the brick creating a blank canvas that you can then do pretty much anything you want with.

Accent pieces. While ottomans are footrests seats and storage containers they can also be used as accent pieces that pick out a color in your décor and display it is bright vivid color.

Painted brick. An option I have used often painted brick works every time. If you are longing to update your old red brick but are short on budget paint your brick. Any color can work but white works with so many different styles. Modern rustic and coastal all work with a painted fireplace. If the bricks are being installed new your project can cost $2.000 to $5.000 for raw materials and installation. (Read this before attempting it yourself though).

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.
