One of the areas of a room that tends to be ignored are the corners due to their awkward angles when trying to fit most things into them flush. This causes a lot of empty space that could otherwise be used. Apart from filling up this space with large plants, you could also use those spaces for small entertainment units. Corner component stands utilize the empty space nicely by providing an angle fitting unit that can house your flat screen TV and cable or gaming boxes.

As much as the look and size of your average TV set has changed in the past ten years or so, so too has the TV stand. They are now more streamlined and modular looking with a variety of models and styles that can accommodate the smallest flat screen TV to a 60 inch screen home theater version. And for businesses, there are commercial TV stands, which are perfect for stores and trade shows.

Using floating shelves to hold your DVD players, gaming consoles and mini-stereo systems minimizes clutter and maximizes space to give practically any room a clean, modern look. Floating shelves are relatively easy to install providing you have the right tools and hardware. It’s always good to check out the included hardware first before putting up the shelves. If the mounting brackets appear to be damaged or not great quality, you may be better off going to the hardware and buying your own bracketing system so that everything stays in place.

Unlike the more traditional CTR televisions, the beauty of a flat screen TV is that it can be mounted up on the wall, for a clean, minimalist look. The same goes for some of your TV accessories like DVD players and surround sound systems. You can mount a wall stand directly under the TV for a particular component, thus getting rid of the bulky and/or messy TV/component floor stand.

Back in the day, when TV’s were huge and bulky, you needed a floor-based stand or entertainment unit to keep the TV and all its related gadgets together in one area. These days however, with flat-screen TV’s you can place your TV on the wall and out of the way with a tidy wall mounted component shelf underneath to hold your cable box, DVD player and gaming console or surround sound amplifier. The result is a clean, uncluttered viewing area that everyone can enjoy.
