Organizing your home to make your house feel the way you want it can be tricky.
Better Homes and Gardens has shared 9 of their best entertainment center ideas that may work for you.
TVs are not like the TVs I grew up with. They are thin, sleep and can rid bulky components. Consider having your TV on the top of your mantel for a eye catching display.
Cords, cords, cords! DVD players, video game systems, cable boxes and other electronic devices such as sound bars, stereo systems that can be bulky and an eye sore. Consider an old dresser as a storage space. You can leave the drawers in or take them out.
Perhaps you were just thinking about throwing away all your vinyl records. Perhaps a shelving unit is what you need, while a wall mounted TV can be set above it.
Just because you have media doesn’t mean it has to be bulky looking or lack style.
Wide and deep cabinets can store movies, video games, blankets and much more. When you frame your TV with the things you love, it will be sure to feel like home sweet home.
Perhaps you have a small space or you are looking to put your TV entertaining area in a bedroom, basement or den. Consider separating the consoles into zones – games, remotes, etc. Keep the thing you use near where you will most likely use them at.
A family room or play area is a great place to store games, toys and other kid activities.
Go through your items and consolidate. For instance, keep DVDs and other discs in a binder instead of their individual cases. Or corral all art supplies in one easy-to-carry tote rather than separate containers.
Can’t see the TV? That is one look you can do too. There is a sleek hidden away look with built-in entertainment centers. This is a great way to make your area feel multi-purpose. My guess is every person who comes over will want their entertainment center this way too when they leave.
Find a deep cabinet or console table and line up books, bookmarks, notebooks and other reading needs. This might end up being your favorite spot in the house!
Are you looking for an airy, no clutter entertaining area. Consider concealed cabinetry for a balance between chic and storage. Inside these you can put movies, games, blankets, and other unsightly items.
No matter which is your style, I hope this gave you some inside ideas of what you might consider for your entertaining area.
After all, making your house your home is what going home is all about.
