You’ve done the hard work of finding the right TV for your home. Now comes the even harder part— deciding the furniture that goes with it. If you’re not sure which TV console design might work for your home, here are some tips to help you get started!

1. Free-Standing TV Cabinets

The simplest way to house your TV is with a freestanding TV cabinet, which you can readily buy off the shelf at a wide range of price points and designs. This TV console design typically takes up less space than built-in ones.

Another big plus is that a freestanding TV cabinet gives you more flexibility to rearrange the furniture in the space. If you’re someone who likes having the option of doing over your living room, this TV console design might just be right for you.

2. TV Consoles with Storage Solutions

What if you want your TV to be the centrepiece of the living area? Built-in consoles are a great way to get bespoke furniture that’s tailored to the layout and aesthetic of your home. Plus, custom TV console designs often come with more storage space than freestanding options. If you are looking for a big statement piece that can do double duty as a storage option, consider a built-in console.

Not the biggest fan of closed carpentry? Opt for TV console designs that come with open shelving. That way, you can have more storage space without compromising on your preferred aesthetic.

3. Floating TV Consoles

If you’re a fan of the minimalist look, consider trading storage space for style, with a sleek wall-mounted floating TV console. This TV console design might be a good option if you already have storage options elsewhere and want to keep the space as clean as possible.
