Home Entertainment Furniture: TV Stands or Entertainment Wall Units? When choosing home entertainment furniture you have a general choice between entertainment wall units and TV stands or consoles. Most people watch TV and DVDs these days, and provision for a flat screen digital TV system is generally essential with entertainment furniture. The question is usually how large the furniture should be rather than whether or not it should incorporate a screen. There are many uses for screens today, and your LCD or LED TV screen can be used for watching TV, watching movies through DVD or Blu-ray, playing video games or even accessing the internet. When deciding on the home entertainment furniture you require, you should take all of these possibilities into account. You might need only one screen for all your applications. For example, if you only ever watch TV and dont use your screen for anything else, why go the expense of a wall unit? You would only use the extra space for display purposes, in which case you would be better with a display cabinet and a TV console. If this is not large enough for you, and you feel you want more storage space, then choose the wall unit by all means: people can always find something to fill any available storage space in their home, and some! However, lets forget all that meantime and have look here at the home entertainment furniture available to you, and what each type can be used for. The above questions will be answered as we do so. TV Consoles TV consoles are designed to hold a widescreen digital TV, although they can also accommodate older style cathode ray TVs. They are usually in the form of a cabinet with a flat top to rest the TV at viewing height. The cabinet will generally offer two cupboards for your DVD and perhaps CD collection, and shelves for your satellite box, had risk recorder, DVD player and surround sound amplifier if you have one. It may even offer space for your games console, although if you need storage space for all these boxes, you should make sure that the home entertainment unit you purchase can accommodate them all. This is where a simple TV console can let you down. It is enough for many people, but perhaps not if you are a hi-fi aficionado. You can also find TV consoles that are designed for all your boxes, and if you wish to store CDs, DVDs or Blu-rays, you can use separate racks for them. Some still prefer their vinyl albums because they believe vinyl offers a purer tone that digital which can distort certain frequencies. Whatever you prefer, TV consoles can accommodate your players, but generally not dedicated hi-fi equipment. If you have a high-end hi-fi unit, such as a Bang and Olufsen, you will not be able to fit that into your TV console, and then you might think of more extensive home entertainment furniture. Home Entertainment Wall Units Wall units come in many shapes and sizes, and can be designed to hold all your entertainment equipment: a TV system, games console, dedicated hi-fi equipment and all the boxes and amplifiers you want to fit into it. Home entertainment wall units also provide space for display cabinets, generally either side of the TV hutch. Some people use the screen for their computer, and use part of the center to access the internet. This is fine for occasional use, but if you run an internet business, frequently access social networking sites or have other people living in the house with you, then it is best to create a home office and work from there. Others may want to watch TV when you want to go online! An example of an entertainment center is a display unit from Paula Dee, manufactured by Universal. At 84 inches high, this is very imposing, and if you add a display unit or bookcase either side of the console, you will have a wall unit that uses up 124 inches (10 ft 4 inches) of your wall space. This is an imposing piece of furniture, and you will have room to store everything you have to. It is good for your TV screen, boxes, games units, surround stereo system, Hi-fi stereo and dedicated speakers, iPod dock - anything you can think of! There are many other home entertainment units available that are smaller in size, but with todays modular concept you can make yours as small or as large as you want. Entertainment furniture units are designed to go together like living room sectionals - you have no limits. Whether you want your home entertainment furniture to be in the form of individual TV consoles or integrated into complete entertainment wall units, the choice is yours because all options are available to you.
