Modern Living Room Wall Units Full Of Class And Pizzazz

If you had to pick a new wall unit for your living room, how would it look like? The question is actually not as easy as it seems. It’s definitely easier to think of some characteristics that you want for your new unit when you’re replacing an already existing one. Basically you just make a list of things you hate about your old furniture and you look for the opposite in your new design. Things are more complicated when you’re decorating an empty space. However, both cases show similarities.

Wall units can be of several different types. Entertainment centers are probably the most common type of all. They’re large and they usually wrap around the TV. Modern wall units sometimes feature a hollow section which is meant to accommodate a wall-mounted TV. In some cases, the TV is attached to a back panel that’s part of the unit. Entertainment wall units contain a variety of storage options and often offer a mixture of drawers, shelves and closed compartments. They’re really practical although they’re not ideal for small spaces.

Modularity is important and it has become a characteristic of a lot of modern wall units

Another option is a TV stand or console. They’re simpler versions of entertainment centers and they’re designed to hold the TV and to offer some additional storage space for things like media components, books or games. Modern TV stands can sometimes be a bit simplified, offering the option to mount the TV on the wall behind them rather than placing it on the cabinet.

One of the best options for small spaces is the media chest, sometimes also referred to as an armoire. These are similar to TV wall units in the sense that they’re cabinets with storage and space for the TV. In the case of an armoire, the TV is usually concealed inside a cabinet with doors. This type of wall storage units is slender and takes up little floor space. Its structure is organized vertically rather than horizontally.

If you decide to go with a custom wall unit, make sure you take into consideration the dimensions of your TV

In a modern or contemporary setting, there’s sometimes a desire to keep the space as airy and as free of furniture as possible. In such cases, wall shelving units are a really good option. They can be custom-designed to perfectly fit the space and to have a configuration that complements the rest of the furniture pieces. Now that you have a general idea of the types of wall units to choose from, you can continue planning the rest of the details.

There are a few important questions you need to ask yourself before choosing a wall unit for your living room. For instance, what will you be storing in this room? The answer to this questions can help you determine the type of storage your unit should offer (drawers, shelves, closed compartments, etc.). You should also decide whether or not you need display space for things like artwork, books, photos or games.

Embrace eclecticism by combining two or more styles or influences such as modern and industrial

Take into consideration the dimensions of your media equipment. Measure the width, height and depth of every piece and make sure you also take into consideration their ventilation requirements. And while you’re at it, check the placement of the outlets and plan your cord management system. As a general rule, you should always look for ways to express your style and if that means mixing and matching different pieces from different collections or even combining styles then so be it.
