Spring is a great season to get started on home improvement projects. This is the perfect time to consider installing an upgraded custom entertainment center. Given the rapid changes in technologies, furniture has evolved in order to properly house these new electronics. There is no longer a need for bulky entertainment centers. The professionals at More Space Place are experts in building custom entertainment centers that the entire family can enjoy for years to come. Here are our recommendations for things consider to get started.

Have a Game Plan

Before getting started on your media center installation, it’s important to have a plan in place. You’ll want to take inventory of everything you’re looking to display or store. This includes all electronics, but can also include other things such as books or artwork. You’ll want to have the media center be big enough to include space for everything without overwhelming the room. Don’t forget to consider space for your sound system. Decide ahead of time if you will have mounted surround- sound speakers or incorporate standing speakers throughout the room.

Display Your TV Proudly

You’ll want to have the TV serve as the main focal point in the room so plan your media center around it. For large flat screens that are mounted on the wall, avoid traditional media centers. Instead, show off the monitor proudly by adding custom shelving around your TV to create an open and modern look. Our design team can work with you on building a custom piece with a contemporary look and feel.

Home Theater Touches and Custom Storage Solutions

Custom shelving can also be used to display personal touches such as family photos and fun entertainment memorabilia. Consider incorporating fun movie posters the whole family loves. Showcase your movie and game collections with open shelving so that they are easily accessible to everyone. Corral your cables and store your gaming consoles and cable boxes in custom cabinets to keep everything neat and organized. At More Space Place, we offer a wide selection of custom storage solutions to store whatever you need.
