2. Contemporary modulesThis stylish modular entertainment unit lends a contemporary edge to the room, with its sleek boxes, clean edges and straight lines. While the rectangular storage niches on either side are compact and concealed, the TV sits in an alcove, breaking the monochrome monotony and highlighting the arrangement.
Create a media centreTV walls are a must-have for many contemporary homes, but they present two problems. First, the wall is dominated by something that, for much of the time, is nothing more than a large black, characterless panel. Then, to get the best viewing, the TV needs to be hung quite low. So why not anchor yours within a modular storage unit like this? Pick a fuss-free design in the same colour as the wall and you’ll focus on your favourite show, not the storage unit – or what’s in it.Take a look at these TV and media units that steal the spotlight
2. The volume and bulkiness of this semi-open, semi-closed TV unit with showcase is visually reduced with its neutral colour scheme merging with the similarly coloured walls behind. The open cabinets display books and quirky curios while the closed ones conceal bits and bobs that are better off hidden.
Think about your viewpointWhen positioning any wall-hung piece, consider your viewpoint. This particularly applies to things you’ll actively look at, such as a TV or piece of art. Since you’ll mostly be watching TV on a sofa, the centre of the screen should be positioned at eye level when you’re seated. Depending on your sofa, that’s around 1m high. This is more about function than aesthetics, but both are important elements of good design.Art and pictures are often hung too high, so take into account the scale of the room and the average eye level.Discover inventive ways to display your antiques
