Industrial Chic Home Entertainment Centers And TV Stands

The floor plan of most homes can vary, but chances are the first room seen when opening the front door is the living room. This is especially true for apartment or studio dwellers. The chances are even better that, in this room, the entertainment center is the primary focal point. For this reason, you want it to reflect your style. Not only do you have to look at it daily but any guest you have will see it. Wouldn’t  this be the best opportunity to show off a distinctive bit of style? To help with this, here are some industrial chic home entertainment centers and TV stands.

It seems that home entertainment centers are firmly in the middle of modern households. Every era of human history has seen a specific spot in the home take up a central role. For most of human history this central area was the fire. It was a place to keep warm and socialize with the family. In the darkness of night it was a place to feel safe. With the advent of both electricity and cheap radios the living room took on that role. The family could gather around to hear their favorite programs broadcast in from afar. Then, along came the television set which eventually supplanted the radio.

It’s Just A Entertainment Center, Isn’t It?

First off, let’s define what is referred to as an entertainment, or media, center. They are often large, but can come in a variety of sizes and are used to house entertainment electronics. These include television sets, stereo receivers, and DVD players (even VHS for the media archaeologist!). Also, they can house home theater sound systems, gaming consoles, and HTPCs (home theater personal computers). Usually, they offer plenty of storage for physical media like DVDs and CDs. Larger centers can come in multiple pieces that fit together like a jigsaw. Others can consist of a platform for the telly to rest and a few shelves for essential items.

Having a love of television shows, movies, or music means picking out the right entertainment center will only increase the overall enjoyment. Enough space to keep physical items like CDs and DVDs organized means less searching through mountains of cases to find a random song. Another benefit is not seeing that distracting nest of wires set just behind the telly. That kind of mess only serves to distract when relaxing in front of a favorite show. There is something particularly soothing when all those devices appear neat, organized, and easy to reach at a moment’s inspiration.

Still, We’re Watching TV And Not The Room, Right?

As mentioned before, chances are the entertainment center is the focal point of the first room seen when entering a home. This makes it the perfect place to make a stylistic statement. When it is something pleasing to look at then you will feel more comfortable. When guests see that, they will feel you’re unafraid of letting them know who you are. Who wants to see a blank space with a TV just sitting there?

The entertainment center will be the primary focal point of the room. Like it or not, it will set the tone for the space. There are loads of entertainment centers out there in a wide variety of styles. Centers can range from big and bulky and can give the impression of an architectural feature. They can also be sleek, slender, and/or wall mounted to create a more airy, spacious feel. Many are single, freestanding pieces that can easily be moved around. Others come in multiple pieces that can fit together based on your needs. The important thing is that they achieve the goal of organizing and hiding multiple devices while showing off a specific design style.

The Industrial Look: Pipes, Ducts, And Brick Work, Oh My!

Industrial design, or industrial chic, has become en vogue lately. Interest in renovating and re-purposing old spaces is only growing in popularity. This design style takes pride in the rawness of construction materials and the time-worn look of well used pieces. The exposed brick wall once plastered over is now desired. Immediately obvious feature like pipes and ducts are no longer hidden away. As older spaces are renovated, it is easy to see why industrial chic has become widely popular, especially among those connected with older, historical buildings. Some things that define the overall industrial look enough to make it a distinct design style include:

  • The unabashed display of normally concealed features such as pipes, duct work, and brick to give a raw and unfinished feel.
  • Neutral colors are used throughout with pops of rich and/or bold accent colors. Metal and wood, usually raw or minimally polished, abound on furniture and surfaces.
  • An open layout is a prime feature. This style has its origins in converted industrial and commercial spaces with plenty of square footage.
  • Older restored or re-purposed furniture pieces are a mainstay of industrial design. Do not be limited to old and usually more expensive items though. Just look for design features to fit the industrial vibe.
  • Accessorize! Features like Edison style light bulbs, distressed leather on furniture pieces, pipe accents in display or storage pieces, or old machine parts can all help to enhance an industrial vibe.

  1. Excellent article, entertainment corner is always a place to refresh in the house after rerunning from the work,but everyone would determine the style of design based on the taste and affordability, the entertainment center will be the primary focal point of the room, so you will want it to set the tone for the space. I love this Sauder Barrister Lane Credenza,is perfect for a small place such as an apartment or studio. I prefer it because of the little space that occupies. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Excellent article you have up here. Seriously, presenting the best feel about one’s home is focusing on how best to present the hone entertainments since very few people would be granted access beyond the living room or the main dinning room. So it is essential to do a great job of presenting it well with excellent designing to make your style unique. I like the various designing suggestions and ideas here and surely I will incorporate one into my home

  3. The  South Shore Munich Wall Mounted Console is perfect for the size of my room- If I went bigger it would look silly as my entertainment area is a snug area as we don’t watch much tele- we prefer to play board games and have family time doing something together and extra space in this room will make a load of difference especially with 5 people in this space

    I love the design so I am going to sus it out by clicking the link

    Thank you

  4. Free standing and wall mounted entertainment centers. Wow, I get to learn something new today. I guess we all learn everyday then. I used to call this entertainment centres dividers because they help us divide what we want in a place from the other. True this entertainment centres can help taking away the spiral twist of the wires and if well organised, can impress the visitors. This is a very good post and I think the options there are awesome.

    • Thanks! You hit on a use that I didn’t think to in the post. Entertainment centers can absolutely be used to divide a large space like a one room studio or a just a larger than normal living or family room.
