Sometimes, the best way to escape from the world around you is to put the TV on and watch a good movie. When you simply need time for yourself or you have nothing else to do due to the rainy weather, watching TV on the sofa can be a great way to relax. In many homes, the TV, along with the TV unit, is the focal point of the living room. This is very reasonable if we take into consideration that, on average, we spend about four hours watching TV per day. It is our go-to spot for unwinding and entertainment. And for that very reason, choosing the right TV unit is a big deal. Entertainment units can be more than just a place for your TV. They can be functional, space-defining, stylish and can provide you with the most fabulous storage solution.


Designer TV units are always a good choice because of two main reasons: they are quality and unique. Most models are made of durable materials like oak, teak, and walnut. Their simple lines make designer TV units a perfect choice for most types of interiors while their functional design will provide you with ample storage space to keep your items organized or display some of your favourite belongings. However, choosing the perfect TV unit is not that easy and straightforward.

Style and design

When it comes to the style and design of designer TV units, there are a few important questions you should ask yourself. No matter whether you are purchasing your very first unit or you are upgrading your old one, it is important to consider the existing aesthetics in your living space. A sleek and modern unit will certainly not complement well a mid-century styled room.

Consider the natural light as well. If the room is a bit dark and lacks natural light, look for designer TV units made of light oak in white tones. On the other hand, if the light in the room is not an issue, then you can opt for a unit in walnut tones, smoky ash or a matt black finish. Also, think about what would work best for you – whether a free-standing unit attached on the wall, one with multiple storages or one with cubic style. These are all important considerations that you should keep in mind if you don’t want to end up with a unit that will not suit you and your home’s aesthetics and needs.


Room size

Measuring the room is a must. Keep in mind the current layout. Do you have limited depth, height or space to play with? This is all very important as you want a unit that will blend with the rest of the room. If space is not a limitation, then you can consider the overall storage system that comes attached to the wall behind the TV. The pros of this unit are that it provides plenty of storage opportunities. These units are also a good choice if you have small kids running about as it will keep the TV safe up high. On the other hand, if you have a small living room, then low profile designer TV units are the right way to go. Whether you are more into modular units with several shelves or into built-in sleek and modern shelves, browse the online market to easily find the ideal solution for your needs.


Do you need a unit just to hold your TV and nothing more or you need one that will provide storage for all your electronic gadgets and DVD collections? Do you need a space to display some of your favourite belongings like art, books or treasured objects? When browsing through the range of designer TV units, it is important to consider the function of the piece. For example, if you already have a bookshelf in your living room then you don’t really need extra space for displaying books and collectables. On the other hand, if you have a small room that doesn’t offer you plenty of options and you really want to green things up, a shelving style unit would be the most functional choice.
