Sleek Entertainment Units

The entertainment unit is a key part of the Australian living room. Whether it’s sports, award shows, reality tv or plain old binge watching, you spend a lot of time sitting in front of the screen and as a result, in front of the entertainment unit. That’s why it’s really important for it to fit nicely in your Sydney living room without being too obtrusive. Here are some important things to consider when purchasing an entertainment unit in Sydney, Australia.

TV Unit Styles

Your entertainment unit can come in a wide range of styles, from the lowline to the wall units or the TV armoires.

Lowline entertainment units, also known as TV consoles or TV units, come in a variety of styles and colours. Their common feature is that they’re close to the ground. They are great choices if you plan to mount your tv on the wall or if you live in a small apartment in Sydney, as they create lots of open space and often offer storage below.

Wall units are larger and usually have shelves that surround the TV. These are great for larger, more spacious homes in Australia and also provide additional storage options. The shelves surrounding the TV can vary in style too. They can have glass cases to display art pieces, photo frames or china, or can be used as bookshelves.

TV Unit Measurements

Taking measurements is a prerequisite for purchasing the correct entertainment unit. Here are some measurement tricks. TVs should be placed at eye level when seated, this means mounting the TV at an average of 105 cm from the floor to the middle of the TV for optimal viewing pleasure.

Apart from measuring the area your unit will be placed in, don’t forget to measure your TV. The unit shelf should be no more than 30 cm below the middle of your TV. Even if you plan on mounting your TV, you need to make sure your entertainment unit will fit comfortably underneath it.

If possible, place your sofa or armchair at around two and a half meters from your entertainment unit making sure you don’t suffer from eye fatigue. The length of your entertainment unit should fit nicely with the rest of your furniture. If you have a large 2 seater couch, 3 seater sofa, or a massive modular sofa, you can add a larger unit.

Managing Wires

Acknowledge where your power source is in your home, then consider how far your unit will be from it and from other relevant points such as the Wifi router, cable TV point or fiber optics link, and assess how best to minimise the cabling.

If you don’t have the luxury of running your wires behind the wall, you will need to use extension cables, so make sure that they don’t cause tripping hazards or run under doors that won’t be able to close due to bulky wires.

Other Uses

Ask yourself if you’ll be using the entertainment unit for any other purposes than your TV. Do you need more storage space? Will you be installing an entire entertainment system and will the speakers be on floating shelves or on the unit itself?

TV unitscan serve as additional storage space for the living room. Gamers can easily slide their game consoles in and out without unplugging each time.

Even if you’re using a projector and not a standard TV, an entertainment unit creates a central space where all your living room furniture face, from sofas and armchairs to living room cabinets, and can provide extra storage space to hide electronics and cables when not in use.

FAQ

How high should I place my TV?

TVs should be placed at eye level when seated. Placing your TV at an average of 105cm from the floor to the middle of the TV screen will create optimal viewing pleasure. If you have a low seated sofa, look for lower TV stands to match.

How do I decorate TV unit?

To decorate a TV unit, start with a focal point such as a vase or artwork. Add plants, layer objects, and consider the color scheme to create depth and interest. Use decorative trays to organise smaller items and add lighting with a lamp or string lights for ambiance. Make sure the overall look complements the style of your living room or entertainment space.

What is the difference between a TV stand, TV unit, and a TV console?

A TV stand, TV unit, and TV console are all pieces of furniture designed to hold a TV and double up as storage. While they have some slight differences, such as the amount of storage they offer, their size, and style, the main difference is that the terms are commonly used in the United States, Australia, and Singapore respectively.
