In home design today, the TV is not just limited to being in the entertainment room. Some homes even have entertainment areas in every room of the house. Modern TV designs are sleeker and more compact, making them easy on the eye despite a large screen size. However, deciding where to place your entertainment system can still be a challenge for some. Here are a few ideas to try...
1. Against a wall
The most basic setup for an entertainment system is against the wall. Entertainment cabinets with complete provisions for DVD players, DVD storage and the like can be bulky. Flushing the entire setup against a wall makes it less obstructive. This also makes it easier to plug in appliances in wall sockets. When choosing which wall to place your TV, consider the light coming from windows to avoid glare.
2. As a divider
For a slimmer entertainment cabinet, you may opt to use it as a divider between two separate areas, as in between a living and dining area. You may even choose a cabinet that can turn the TV towards the two viewing areas. This will save space and money on a separate entertainment system for the other room.
3. Corner area
Some rooms or areas in the house just can’t afford dedicating one wall for TV space. This is most common in a corner living room, where the furniture is typically arranged in an L-shaped configuration. Try locating the TV at the corner of the room for a viewing angle that accommodates both sides. Use a corner entertainment cabinet to match your TV placement.
