TV units usually need to be picked based on the space available in your living room. You can opt for fiber board units or hard wood modular media units depending upon your budget. For bigger rooms, you can go with entertainment units with space in the center for the screen surrounded by shelves which could be used for display items, DVD library, books or even speakers of your sound system. These entertainment cabinets can be open or have glass panels. An Oak TV unit could look classy.
As far as TV units are concerned, you have a choice between low height TV stands or full- fledged entertainment cabinets. Low height stands which are about 5 to 6 feet long and about 2 feet high are ideal for rooms which are slightly short of space or have low ceilings. These low height TV units can have racks for storing CDs or to place the DVD player. There are corner TV units which could be picked for smaller rooms while TV stands with hutches also provide an interesting and useful option.
Modern TV units come with special sliding doors in espresso, pecan or cherry wood finish to match the remaining items of furniture in the house. Engineered wood, louvered style panels, removable shelves, open storage sections and inside partitions are some of the other variations that you can find as far as TV stands are concerned. There are pier cabinets with center drawers and access holes to make sure that there is space for the wires to go out to plug points without creating a mess. Base levelers are also provided in top class stands. Some entertainment units even have illuminated panels for additional décor. Some TV stands come with adjustable shelves which can be used or removed depending upon the way you want to arrange things.
