With wood being a key component for these types of cabinets, you might want to look for a stain or varnish that brings out the natural tones of the wood. However, painted surfaces were not uncommon at that time, so you may want to consider a painted one. Typical colors from the time period include blues, greens, pinks, earth tones and red as an accent color on the interior.
One of the first units I saw, which is the type I like on a regular wall unit, is an armoire. I had no idea that you could get a corner entertainment center in an armoire style! I love being able to close off the tv, especially when it is kept in the living room.
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.
