A TV unit, also known as an entertainment unit, a TV stand, a TV cabinet or console, is an essential piece of living room furniture upon which your TV sits, or below when your TV is wall mounted.
Although wall mounting TV’s is becoming increasingly popular, TV units are still important pieces of living room furniture. When positioned beneath wall mounted televisions, stylish entertainment units display decorative homewares and store home entertainment items such as CD’s, game consoles and video games, books, set top boxes and cables.
Along with your television, a TV unit or entertainment unit is often the visual focal point in your living room. Starting with the size of your television, the most important aspects to consider when choosing an entertainment unit is the width and height, as well as the style of course.
Remember TV sizes are a diagonal measurement across the screen, so a 65 inch TV may actually be about 57 inches wide, depending on the size of the frame. With that as your starting point, consider the following when you shop for entertainment units at Amart:
If your television is wall mounted, the entertainment unit beneath it needs to be at least three or four inches wider otherwise the entire visual effect is top-heavy and unbalanced, negatively impacting your viewing experience.
For safety reasons, if your television sits on a TV cabinet it should be wider than your TV so there is no risk of it being knocked off. It will also look unattractive if your TV frame overhangs the entertainment unit it sits on.
The combined height of the TV cabinet and the television should position the centre of the television screen roughly at eye level for the optimum viewing experience from your sofa. If you’re handy with a tape measure work out where that point is then measure from the floor to that point. Measure the height of your TV screen and deduct half that measurement to find the ideal height for a TV cabinet.
The design of your TV cabinet doesn’t have to exactly match your living room or home theatre furniture. Of course the easy way to guarantee a harmonious look is to buy an entertainment unit with matching furniture such as the Amarah range of living and dining furniture.
Alternatively, select an entertainment unit in the same style as existing furniture. That might be a rattan entertainment unit if your interior design is coastal style, a black TV unit for sleek, ultra-modern apartment living or a wooden TV unit for a classic family home.
Aside from home storage and cable management, a modern TV or entertainment unit has several benefits:
