The main feature I was interested in this time was one that saved space. Our old entertainment center was very deep to close away the TV and took up a lot of floor space. We definitely did not need this anymore, so I was happy for the extra room. Our family room is narrow, so I only wanted something to hold the TV and the extra components.
I sawed it down big time. What I ended up with was just a small remnant of the old one. I can’t close it off from the rest of the room, but why would I want to? I don’t. Some people are even more minimalists than I am. They mount their TV on the wall and just use a small cabinet for components.
Once you’ve identified the entertainment center that works with your decor and you finally bring it home, where you place it can actually make it appear more authentic. In the 18th century, the fireplace was the center of the home and, as a result, the centerpiece. Cabinets were often placed to the side of the fireplace to be on display, but not take away from it.
