Entertainment Wall Units


Entertainment wall units are like entertainment centers, only they offer more shelving and cabinetry to display and store items. They are known to take up the majority of a wall, hence the name. You can hide electronic cables a lot easier on TV wall units compared to entertainment centers, consoles, and stands.

Extra large Entertainment Wall Unit with Large Sliding Doors

Extra large Entertainment Wall Unit with Large Sliding Doors

Finished with an off-white and brown dual-tone, this entertainment wall unit mixes well with rustic farmhouse style. The hutch, bridge, and bookcase shelving offer sixteen cubby hole sections to showcase books, pots, and vases and store TV electronics.

Designer Advice:

The two barnyard sliding doors make a statement, though they are not safe for little fingers. Because of its thick wood build, back paneling, and no built-in lighting, it may be difficult to see décor pieces in low or dim lighting. To fix this problem, add your lighting to the shelves or use directional ceiling spotlights.

Buying Guide

You can install traditional entertainment wall units yourself depending on how big the unit is, where it’s placed, and the number and type of home entertainment equipment you plan to set up.

The wall unit typically features shelves and cabinets and is often massive. Most are one-piece, but if you can find one that separates into a console and side storage pieces, it will be easier to place yourself.

Fasten the unit to the wall using anchoring brackets and heavy-duty drywall screws inserted into wall studs to avoid tipping. This will help protect your equipment and keep children, pets, and even adults safe.

Traditional entertainment wall units are a smart choice for storage and style in your living room. Wall units are multi-purpose furniture pieces that house more than just your television or electronic devices. An entertainment wall unit has many shelves and cubbies, which allow you to show off decorative items like unique glass or ceramic vases, globes, and figurines.

Wall units are a great place to put framed photographs of you and your family, your pets, and your favorite vacations for all to see. House your collection of classic books or dictionaries in your entertainment center for a professional look, or put succulents in unique containers on the shelves for a chic, bohemian vibe. For pure functionality, keep your television, stereo system, and DVD or Blu Ray player in the center portion of your wall unit.

An important decision you’ll need to consider is whether to place your TV on a swivel stand or mount it on the wall in the open section of the wall unit. Hiding wires is a problem in most cases. Depending on your wall type, you may be able to place the wires in the wall itself. For this, a professional installer may be a better option than doing it yourself.

Fortunately, entertainment wall units can be found in various wood finishes, suitable for all kinds of traditional color schemes.

Units stained in a dark mahogany tone give off an antique and nostalgic appearance that fits perfectly in a classical interior design. Their red and brown hues pair well with a plethora of light and dark colors, including burgundy, cream, green, orange, and grey.

If you prefer your living room furniture to have light to medium brown tones, your best bet may be a traditional entertainment wall unit in a walnut finish. Much like dark mahogany, this color can go with just about any decor and furniture color, whether it be warm or cool. Light blue, taupe, and sage green are common wall colors that bring out the best in walnut furniture.

For a traditional piece with contemporary elegance, a light wood color, like oak, will do the trick. Pair it with a color palette that features light shades, such as yellow, baby blue, white, or lavender for a bright and airy space.

Alternatively, a cherry entertainment wall unit provides a warm contrast to a neutral design style. Its rich brown hues and red undertones also go beautifully with dark decor and furnishings.
