If you need to add some extra space to your living room or family room, take a look at how large your TV stand or media center is and reduce the footprint by replacing the larger unit with a compact TV stand. This works quite well if you have just a few of the basic TV accessories you may need such as a cable box, blu-ray player and surround sound system. Any more and the stand might begin to look a tad cramped.
