Entertainment, whether it comes from TV, home cinema or music, plays a big part in how we relax, share time together as a family and even how we specialise. We take time choosing the right television, build up our music and film collections, and get hours of enjoyment out of them. Give it all centre stage in your living area, by choosing the entertainment unit that works for you. Keep the TV secure in a TV cabinet or storage unit, and your music system in a hifi unit. Most cabinets have drawers and shelves so all your media can be neatly stored away, keeping your living room tidy and welcoming. We have some great wooden corner TV units designed to fit snugly in the corner of your room, they're also ideal for tucking away any unsightly wires. There are also larger units if you have the luxury of space. When choosing the right media unit for you, look at the practical and aesthetic elements so it works for you and looks great too.
An important factor will be the size and shape of the room, and your other furniture. Where will you put the unit? And where will people sit, and will they be able to see the screen? If your cabinet has doors that open out, is there room to do this? Also, allow enough distance between the seating and TV for comfortable viewing – this is largely dependent on the screen size.
What look will you go for? Our home range has TV stands that come in an array of styles including white, oak, black and grey tv cabinets. They also come in materials including wood and glass, sure to suit any décor. For some great tips check out our tv cabinet ideas.
With many options you are sure to find one that co-ordinates with your existing sideboards. These are a great multi-functional piece of furniture too, they can be used to store your entertaining cutlery and crockery, and the top can be decorated with your favourite ornaments and family photo frames. If you have a precious collection you want to show off, glass or wooden display units and cabinets will be the perfect home. Our 3 piece living room sets are ideal if you want a co-ordinated feel to your home. If you're in need of a little more space to keep your games and DVDs then our range of shelves can provide some much needed extra storage. If you don't have the space for a full shelving unit then some floating shelves positioned above your TV could provide some extra storage without taking up too much space.
We have plenty of design options available so you'll be able to find something to suit your existing sofa, where you will no doubt want to lie back and relax on at the end of the day. Add a few home furnishings to complete the look. Stylish scatter cushions look great but also add comfort, warmth and support. Mix and match different colours and material for additional interest and texture. A large rug is a simple way to inject colour into your room, and can also pull the whole look together. Go for a grey rug as a neutral coloured, yet sophisticated option that will stand the test of time. A deep pile rug will feel warm and cosy underfoot too and help insulate your room for when the sun goes in. Nothing more to do than settle down and relax!
