American media consumption has evolved in the past few decades, and the way we structure our home around entertainment has evolved with it. The days of bulky box televisions are behind us, and a new age of wireless gadgets is upon us.

Many families have re-envisioned their living rooms with a custom media center courtesy of More Space Place. Whether you’re looking to install a custom home theater, eliminate webs of wire behind the TV, or add cabinetry to store your stuff, More Space Place has you covered. Read on for our list of best practices when designing an entertainment center that’s right for you!

Family Flicks

Streaming services have brought the theater right to our living rooms, and nothing beats a night in with the family enjoying a fun film. Don’t let blinking lights or clutter distract from your movie night magic! Consider planning your unit with the dimensions of your TV, receiver, DVD player, and other related equipment in mind. Cords, cables, and connectors can lie neatly behind your media center, keeping them out of sight and out of mind.

On Display

We love to put our prized possessions on display, whether they’re family photos, vacation souvenirs, or our children’s very best macaroni art. These little mementos can serve as a perfect conversation starter when entertaining guests and keep happy thoughts at the forefront of our minds. Open shelving is an excellent option to showcase your household’s favorite memories – and what better place to do so than the living room?

Tucked Away

While we love to exhibit our cherished treasures, we’d rather our guests not trip over toys or stumble on clutter. For the items you’d rather keep tucked away, consider adding custom shelving to your home’s media center. DVD collections, winter-time blankets, or video game controllers can find their home behind closed doors and remain easy to access when wanted or required.
