Shop Entertainment Centers
Now that you have upgraded your TV, sound system and Blu-ray player, complete the in-home entertainment experience with an impressive entertainment center. Choosing an entertainment center for your needs can be tricky but the right one will be a welcome addition that can enhance your décor while keeping all of your media...
organized. The Entertainment Center Store by Home Gallery Stores has all types and styles, so you are sure to find one to suit your every need. When purchasing an entertainment center consider how much space you have and how much media you need to store. Be sure to measure the length and depth of where you want your entertainment center to go and measure the height, width, and depth of your TV. This is the only way to guarantee your TV will fit in your new entertainment center. Also, measuring the area of where your entertainment center will go can give you a better perspective of just how much space will be taken up — you may think 72“ high doesn’t sound like a lot but a 6 foot entertainment center is definitely large.
The different types of entertainment centers will also play a big part in your decision because they all serve very different purposes and come in different sizes.
Entertainment Walls are going to be the largest and most diverse type due to the multiple areas of storage offered. If you have a widescreen TV, surround sound, gaming system, extensive movie and game collection, DVD player and Blu-ray player, this is going to be the entertainment center for you because it will help you keep it all organized. This type is going to take up the majority of a wall in your entertainment or living room, so make sure it will work cohesively and not overwhelm the rest of your furniture.
If you want an entertainment center that is more understated but still has plenty of storage, a corner entertainment unit is a good option. When you don’t want your TV and entertainment center to be the focal point of a room, a corner unit allows you easy access and style but won’t overpower the rest of your décor.
TV Stands/Consoles give you storage but are horizontal, rather than vertical, to give you more wall space. Or if you would like an entertainment wall but want something a little more streamlined, look into a TV stand/console with a hutch. This will give you the height you want but cut down on the bulk, since it will have less storage.
Media chests are a great option for a bedroom or other secondary television, since they do not take up much space at all. If you want a very simple stand for a TV and enough storage for remotes and maybe a DVD player, this is the way to go.
A TV armoire is going to give you the same height and clean lines that a TV stand with hutch would but is going to have doors on the front, so that when the TV is not in use, you can discreetly hide it away.
Maybe you do not use your TV very often or do not like having your TV on display all the time, then a lift unit entertainment center is a perfect option. A lift unit will have the look of a buffet/credenza but have a hidden slot where a flat screen TV can be hidden and pulled up when you want to use it.
There are other features you can choose when shopping for an entertainment center — an iPod dock, wire management, specific gaming drawers, etc., so if you have any questions, give us a call, the trained Home Gallery Stores sales team will gladly answer any questions.
