The perfect TV unit will effortlessly blend form with function in order to showcase certain elements of your entertainment setup while discreetly storing away the messier parts. But beyond this, how do you pick the perfect one for you? Here are a few pro tips from the apartment furniture experts at Apartment Lifestyle.
It doesn't matter how cool the entertainment unit is – if it's the wrong fit for the room, it just won't look good. Taking into account the aesthetic of your space is a golden rule of choosing any new piece of apartment furniture, but it's particularly important when choosing a centrepiece like a TV unit. Being mindful of your colour scheme will also help you decide whether you want something that blends seamlessly in with your existing pieces, or whether you want to do some bold contrasting.
The TV unit presents a golden opportunity to maximise storage space of your living area. Choose wisely and you get discreet, easy storage of everything from your sound system to your DVD collection and general bric-a-brac. It's all about picking something that will add to, rather than take up, the available space in your home. And while we're on the topic of small spaces, it's often a good idea to choose apartment furniture in lighter colours, as these are better at opening up a room and making it feel more spacious.
While it is mostly a functional piece, there's no reason a TV stand can't add its own bit of personality to a room. If it works in harmony with the rest of your apartment furniture, a stand-out piece can act as a wonderful centrepiece that draws the eye and creates some visual interest. If you're worried about tying a statement piece in with the rest of the room, this is often easier than it looks. Sometimes all it takes is a single piece – a throw, a rug or a cushion – to blend your new unit in with the existing aesthetic.
So what are you waiting for? Get creative and get decorating!
