The Big Game is coming up and it’s all eyes on the television. Whether you’re a die-hard football fan or you prefer to watch the ads, you may wonder how to make your TV work with your room after the last whistle blows. We’re here to help with three solutions for media storage with modern style.

Make the TV part of a wall gallery. Mount your flatscreen and surround it with frames that have a common theme as shown in the photo above. The television becomes part of the art.

A modern media center holds large televisions while giving you plenty of storage for books, favorite objects and extra batteries for the remote.

Placing a media cabinet beneath a wall-mounted TV adds a grounding effect. You can also store extra components, like an Apple TV or your DVR, on the shelves to keep them out of view.

    Although we have been handed the advantage of super-thin super-large television “sets,” designers still are stumped by where to put the damned thing when we aren’t watching it.

    The first cabinet offered is the most attractive (the others are just furniture again), but all three of these designs fail utterly, the second in particular by trying to hide the screen in a wall of clutter. (Why not just paint the entire wall black and the television will disappear entirely?)

    Auton’s lift equipment remains the most attractive solution; short of that, put the set on a wall with great art, and fill the screen (or cover it) with a comparable painting.

    All of your proposals fail for those of us with neck arthritis. For months I have looked for a tv stand about twenty inches or less in height on casters with a shelf for cable boxes and other equipment. I am still looking.

      Arnold, check out Ikea “Benno” television stand with casters at 20 inches, for $79.99–or other options in t heir catalog.

    Really dislike seeing a tv screen no matter how attractive the furniture is. More doored options please and in more shallow cabinets.,

    The flat screen looks nice on the wall above the cabinets. Where are the cables? Let’s see the back of the screen and cabinet for the tricks on hiding cables and cords. Not everything is wireless.

    As I read the comments and marry them with the design goals of hiding a tv, I find myself thinking how can disappointment about failed design goals and these products be ironed out to appease both consumer and manufacturer.

    One, always hire an architect with trying to marry design goals with the built world. And two, from my perspective, if one purchases two of the Innes Media Cabinets and stacked them and then cut a rectangular hole between the two, any large tv could be hidden inside the furniture and using the Auton lift puppy, you would have furniture that hides the TV.

    Of course at $1,700 a piece x 2 that is $3,400 in furniture that hides a TV. Not the most pocket friend solution.

    As the son of a furniture maker, for real, I can see various solutions with some tweaking of Room and Boards , furniture.
    To remain positive, the wood looks real and very well machined.

    Color your world purple, and draw responsibly,
