Types of Entertainment Centers

Entertainment centers can be as unique or conventional as you want, but knowing what’s out there is as important as designing the space. Discover the different types of entertainment centers to find the right one for your space, whether you're looking for a classy credenza, a spacious media chest or armoire, or a sleek TV stand. 

 Top Ideas for Different Types of Entertainment Centers

The following are some of the most common types of entertainment centers you can incorporate into your family room or living area: 

  • TV stand or TV console
  • Armoire
  • Wall unit entertainment center
  • Media chests

You can also look to less conventional solutions, such as a storage sliding door stack unit or sleek console table under a wall mounted television.

Entertainment Center Types by Style

If you're looking for a more modern entertainment center, look for furniture pieces with distinct, clear lines. Contemporary media consoles or wall unit entertainment centers are typically identified by metal or glass materials, and more traditional entertainment centers are generally made of wood.

Consider how the material and finish (distressed paint, etc.) fits with your style preferences before choosing a piece of furniture that is the focal point of your room.

Matching your Television with Your Entertainment Center

For those who do not want to mount the television to the wall, a credenza or entertainment center would be a perfect alternative. Credenzas are smaller than entertainment walls and offer a little more flexibility in placement, but either could be the new home for your television.

Non-Television Centered Entertainment Spaces

Not all spaces for entertaining have to be centered around a television. If it's more your style to allow guests a space to sit and talk, finding the right sectional or credenza could be what you’re aiming for. In a flowing room, you can easily talk with people.

However you want to define your entertainment centers and living spaces, your room should reflect both style and functionality. For assistance designing or finding that perfect piece for your entertainment space, come see a Bassett design consultant nearest you or browse the Bassett website.
