If you’re like most people, the entertainment system is at the center of your home. However, even if you have plenty of space, storing the system can be a bit of a challenge – especially if you want many of the pieces to remain hidden. Most entertainment centers have a variety of different elements, such as video game consoles, multiple speakers, and DVD and Blu-ray players, not to mention the multiple cords that accompany these things. How can you store every part of the entertainment center without creating a cluttered appearance? Here are some of our favorite ideas:
Have Custom Furniture Made
Sometimes, premade entertainment furniture pieces don’t quite get the job done. Although these units are specifically designed to successfully house most entertainment systems, there are situations that require special attention, such as a room that has a unique shape or if you need a piece that perfectly matches your existing furniture and can’t seem to find one that meets your needs. In these cases, it makes a lot more sense to have something custom made. There’s no need to settle for something that won’t quite meet your needs!
Convert Existing Furniture
Do you have a piece of furniture that fits perfectly in the spot where you plan on placing the entertainment system? If so, you don’t necessarily need to remove that piece before you set up your system. Another option is that you can convert this existing furniture piece to now accommodate your entertainment system. For instance, if you have a hutch that fits your television, you can make some simple tweaks so that it will now fit your television, cable box, and even your speakers!
Use Storage Cubes
Are you looking for a way to customize your entertainment center that will also save you money? If so, consider using storage cubes! Cubes come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles. They can include shelves, cabinets, and drawers. This allows you to easily combine them in a way that will allow you to effectively house your entertainment system.
Storing your entertainment system can be tricky, especially if you need to save space or if you’re looking for unique ways to conceal the different components in a way that adds to your existing décor. Consider trying some of these creative ideas when setting up your entertainment system!
