The television is an essential feature and integral part of modern living rooms, and with advances in technology, the design of the TV has shrunk from a bulky box to a sleek and slim wall-mounted unit. Hence, the TV unit designs have also witnessed a dramatic transformation. While designing the TV unit for living rooms, it is essential to consider aesthetics and functionality. Additionally, one should look at the layout and the size of the living room before deciding on the exact spot to fix the television.

The type of material, size, colour and storage features of the TV unit will also help to determine the design that is best suited for the room.  In modern homes, often, the seating arrangement and the décor of the living room revolves around the TV unit to provide comfortable viewing for the family and guests.

Before choosing TV unit designs for halls, it is essential to consider the layout of the room and the position of the television within it. Although most TV units can be adapted to fit into the room, if the size and style are not in sync with the layout of the living room, it will not look great aesthetically. You should also take into consideration the area that the TV unit will occupy and its position before planning the rest of the living room furniture to ensure that the room doesn’t look cramped. 

The size of the TV unit should complement the size of the television

If you are placing the television on a stand instead of mounting it on the wall, then choose a TV stand design that is ideal for the size of the television. As a rule, the TV cabinet should either be of the same size or larger than the television screen. However, if you plan to install the television on the wall, then build the wall unit around it. Whether you choose stands or modern built-in TV wall unit designs, it’s advisable to have storage space for the entertainment gadgets as well as display space for decorative accessories to keep the living room looking organised and well decorated. In small homes, it is better to have modern built-in wall cabinets that optimise space utilisation.    

Choose the material and colour of the TV unit wisely

The type of material and the colour of the TV unit should match the overall décor of the living room. A TV unit made in dark-toned wood gives Indian living rooms a traditional feel and brings warmth into them. Alternatively, you can choose the colour or material of the TV unit to match the colour scheme or theme of the living room furniture. For modern TV unit designs, usually metal is used. However, wooden TV furniture has become quite popular, as they come in innovative styles and varied colour options that look good and are available in a wide range of budgets. The price of TV cabinets and wall-mounted TV units varies between Rs.6000- Rs.50000, depending on the size, material, style and type of TV unit design.

Select the TV unit to suit your lifestyle

When picking a TV unit, ensure that it is perfect for your needs and lifestyle, besides matching the décor of the room. Whether the style is traditional, Bohemian or modern, the style of the TV cabinet or built-in TV wall unit should meet the requirements of your family. For instance, if you have children at home, think before you choose a TV unit design with glass doors that can break easily. Similarly, a unit with open shelves requires regular dusting, so if you don’t have time for daily cleaning, choosing a TV cabinet with shelves and drawers will make more sense. It will also keep items hidden and make the living room look neat and organised.

What are the different types of TV units you can choose for your living room?

TV cabinet designs come in different styles. The most common ones are:

  • Built-in TV wall unit: This is the most common type of TV unit designs in the living rooms of modern homes. It serves as a background for the wall mounted television and is sleek and slim, occupying very little space. A built-in TV wall unit for the living room can be customised depending on the requirement and keeping in mind future needs.
  • Entertainment zone: This TV unit design is ideal for large halls and can be designed to serve as a complete entertainment zone for the family. It should have ample storage space for all the entertainment gadgets, CDs, books and other items. Moreover, the cabinet design should facilitate quick connection of each of the entertainment gadgets with the TV.
  • Television hutch: This refers to a model where the television is enclosed within the cabinet. Here the TV furniture merges with the décor of the room and is not a highlight or focal point.
  • Low TV unit: A unit of this type is at a low height and extends along the length of the wall. It is ideal for the living room with low seating arrangements to keep the television at comfortable viewing height.
