The only thing I can think of that would make me want any sort of cabinet type home entertainment center in the future is if I were to get one of those fancy schmancy lifts that hook onto the TV and allow it to recess into, and lift out of, a nice wooden cabinet. I would consider that. Especially if it had a remote control to run the lift. That might be too good to pass up.
When I got out on my own and got a TV it just lived on a simple table. That worked fine for a single guy. But marriage changes lots of things. Soon we ”had to have” a better place to put the TV because my wife wanted to be able to close it off from view. So, woodworker that I am, I jumped to the rescue.
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.
