What works for you?
If you are searching for a media unit why not consider a sideboard that can double as storage for collectables or media. There are so many options available in various finishes and sizes. The unit can be a low-profile or standard height sideboard that would work with any decor. Primarily they can be used for home entertainment or storage. If you choose carefully they are ideal for any room in your house.
Size and Space
Before making your selection be sure to measure your space. Also ask yourself the following questions: how large and how heavy is your television? Are you going to have it mounted on the wall or placed on top of the unit? What will you store inside the compartments? Which height is optimal to achieve eye level when you are seated? Considering all these questions can help you narrow down your options even further.
Open or Closed?
It depends on what you choose to store in each compartment. If you are looking to showcase decorative items or media equipment you will need easy access to your media equipment, consider an open storage area. Your accent pieces will be displayed beautifully as well as your media equipment will be properly ventilated when in use.
If you are looking for a quick and easy way to hide unwanted clutter found in your space, consider closed storage. If you always find yourself short on time for cleaning, closed storage will be a more suitable option for you.
Most media units come with grommet holes which are located on the back or bottom of the unit. Using these holes to route your electronic cables in and out effectively can clean up your entire set up. To avoid messy and tangled cables, use zip ties to keep cables tightly together. If you find that your power strip is flooded with plugs, use a cable management box with a lid to hide your power strip. You will be surprised on how much of an impact organizing your cables does to your media set up.
