Features: It’s no secret that electronics can be a little pricey, so it’s important that your media furniture is designed to maximize the life of your components. Flow-through ventilation will keep your electronics from overheating and movable shelves will ensure you have enough space to house them. Hidden wheels and removable back panels are also important features, as they will allow you to easily move your cabinet to access the rear of your components for easy set up. And for those with multiple electronics installed, having a wire management system will allow you to keep cords hidden and under control.
Design: Of course, your media furniture should match the décor of your home and your aesthetic preferences. Looking for a unique design? Perforated or louvered doors or IR-friendly glass not only offer a modern look, but also make it easier to access your electronics with your remote control.
“When choosing media furniture, it’s important for consumers to select designs that keep electronics easily accessible, while providing enough storage to add more components in the future,” added Kelley. “But ultimately, you also want a piece of furniture that looks beautiful in your home, and has quality construction to ensure it lasts for many years to come.”
