Corner Entertainment Centers: Save Space With Style

Apr 18, 2008
There are a million different designs of entertainment centers that you could pick from. All it takes is one trip through a Swedish furniture showroom to make your head spin with confusion. Which one is right for you, and more importantly, how are you going to fit it into your house. If you are like many Americans, you own far more entertainment items than you actually need and getting them to fit in one centralized location is quite a chore. Corner entertainment centers are a great way to utilize space that often goes untouched otherwise.

If you look around your home right now you can probably spot a few corners that are basically empty. Maybe you have a chair parked diagonally across one, or a wall sconce hanging nearby. There are much more efficient uses of that space that are not very difficult to achieve. Whether you design your own corner entertainment center or buy one pre-made, it will give you a home for all of your electronics and give you part of your living room back that you haven't seen since you moved in.

With so many flat-panel televisions on the market today, it can be tricky trying to figure out how to mount them. Consider this is where a corner entertainment center can really come in handy. Flat panel televisions can be mounted from a special arm that protrudes from the corner with the corner entertainment center sitting below it. Not only are you using corner space you would not have otherwise used, you are also taking advantage of the height of the room.

Sometimes it can be difficult to decide what to do with your speakers for the stereo system. Though you are proud of your surround sound, it isn't always spatially efficient to have the speakers sitting on table tops or the floor. This is where corner entertainment centers can really come in handy. It's fairly simple: you have a corner entertainment center holding your DVD player, VCR, audio receiver and the like. Above the entertainment center hangs your expertly mounted 32" flat panel plasma television like a shrine to Monday Night Football. Finally, subtly mounted in each corner of the room are small speakers that blend in with the color of the walls.

Finding the right corner entertainment center can be a challenge if you don't know what you are looking for. You will first want to measure the corner you are planning to use to make sure it is a ninety degree angle. Chances are it is, but you still want to be sure. You should also decide how far from the wall the entertainment center will stick out so you don't come home with something that takes up half of your living room. Finally make sure that it will fit all of your things. You've got the DVD player, VCR, stereo system, DVDs, tapes and everything else to think about. Once you have the technicalities ironed out it is all about picking your style and a corner entertainment center that will fit in with your home.
