Install Shutters Or Doors
If you're in the market for custom entertainment centers, take some time to research the one you really want. Some companies, like Paul Rene Furniture and Cabinetry, know how much fun it can be to customize your entertainment center. You will probably want one that hides your television when you aren't watching it, you can have either sliding or swinging shutters or doors installed to open and close in front of your television. When it comes to these shutters or doors, you are only limited to what you can think of, and of course, your budget. You can have barn style doors that are attached to a large metal pole and slide open and closed in front of your television. You can also have shutters that have slats that open and close much like the ones on your home's windows. These doors not only do a good job of hiding your television, but can also hide some of your electronics, and protect all of these items from dust and other types of damage as well.
Build It Around Your Fireplace
If you have a fireplace in your living area, then it can be a great idea to install your home entertainment center around your fireplace. You can have your television either mounted above your fireplace, or put on some kind of shelf. You will then have cabinets that go all of the way around your fireplace to hold all of your items. The mixture of the brick or stone of your fireplace, with the wood cabinets, is going to create a very timeless and customized look that is very aesthetically appealing. This is going to create a very cozy feel for your living room as you watch the fire and enjoy television at the same time.
Install Open Face Cabinets
Another way to customize your home entertainment center is to include some open face cabinets. These cabinets are going to be perfect for decorations because you can easily see what you have put inside of them. For example, if you have some fake flowers and a vase, family pictures, a clock, or other items of this nature, these are going to easy to place inside of the open face cabinets and are going to really add to the customized look of your home entertainment center. You can also include cabinets with doors to put away items that you don't want to be seen, such as movies, electronics, etc.
